In the Operations Management degree programme, you work in a team on complex projects together with companies or research institutions right from the start - using your expertise from various disciplines.
And after your studies?
As a graduate, you will take on international management tasks at the interface between business and technology. You will plan and control production and logistics processes. You will advance digitalisation in companies. You will use machine learning methods and artificial intelligence in innovative ways. And you will use your project experience from your studies and your intercultural competence to successfully pool all resources in projects: various topics, various methods, various people.
Your qualification profile
You combine the methodological knowledge of an engineer with business management skills and are thus able to efficiently design complex production and logistics processes, design and monitor supply chains, know what a digital factory is and how automation works best.
As a graduate of the Operations Management degree programme, your knowledge is in demand in manufacturing companies, but also everywhere that processes are optimised and digital methods are used. Examples include the automotive and manufacturing industries, transport and logistics companies, consulting firms or energy companies.
Potential fields of business
With their high level of competence at the interface of business and technology, our graduates find a wide range of fields of application in a wide spectrum of corporate sectors. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the programme, you have the best prerequisites for management positions which require the integration of various subject areas. You do not pursue a specialist career, instead working in positions where the interesting issues converge.
The Operations Management degree programme is unique. You work independently in a team on a complex project together with companies or research institutions. From our catalogue of lectures, you choose the lectures you need to work on the project."

Particularly appealing to me as a Master's student is the fact that the programme includes both pure research topics and strongly practice-relevant projects. In addition to the wealth of subject content, the parallel development of "soft skills" is infinitely valuable.
