Work while you study

We want your studies to fit perfectly into your life. That is why lectures for master’s programs are limited to Wednesday through Friday afternoons or Saturday nights during the semester. For you, this means that your studies can easily be combined with a part-time job.

However, since the curriculum is still designed as a full-time study, the corresponding preparation and post-processing effort must be taken into account.

Course contents

Whether it is customer management, crisis communication, market research, or digital marketing: the master’s continues with the international, interdisciplinary and brand-specific and communication-specific focus of its bachelor’s degree. It consists of four semesters in which, as a student, you will be taught all the skills you need for leadership and design tasks in international marketing management.

You also have the option of attending an International Summer or Winter School and doing an internship during your studies.
