Experts for Corporate Development: Implementing and Shaping Change
The new focus in the part-time master's program is provided by the topics of digitization and corporate transformation, which have been determining and influencing entrepreneurial activity for many years. Over the course of their studies, students take a holistic view at companies. Each semester, a phase or part of the life cycle of a company is analyzed – from start-up to turnaround.
A PROGRAM WHICH TRANSFORMS
The degree program covers the key instruments of corporate management using case studies from first-hand operational practice. The students deal with real transformation and turnaround measures affecting the respective companies. As part of the program’s research focus, students are actively involved in practice, and they get the chance to network directly with international experts on their study trip. “In the fourth semester, we visit companies that currently are or have recently been involved in transformation and reorganization measures. This enables exclusive, executive-level discussions that give students a unique insight into leading companies,” says Prof. (FH) Dr. Markus Exler, Professor and Head of the Institute for Cross-Border Restructuring.
EXPERTS FOR EVERY STAGE OF A COMPANY’S LIFE CYCLE
