Program Objectives and Description:
The aim of the Business Management Master's Program is to provide students with both theoretical and practical knowledge of the fundamentals of business management, which are necessary for effective and efficient management in a rapidly changing environment. After successful completion of the program, students gain the competences and abilities to formulate solutions to all kinds of business problems and thus achieve the necessary qualifications to assume management positions and responsibilities in various companies.
The Business Management Master Program is designed as an evening program with English as the instruction language.
The modules in the curriculum are taught by experienced Turkish lecturers, who are competent in their field and have mostly international experience, by German lecturers from the Business Administration Department of the TGU (Turkish-German University) and for some modules also by lecturers flying in from Germany.
The program has a double degree program with the International Business Management Master Program of the Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences. Students who fulfill the conditions will have the opportunity to participate in the program, and will receive two diplomas, one from the Turkish-German University and one from Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences, provided they successfully complete the double degree program.
The Business Management Master Program is a 120 ECTS program consisting of 9 compulsory modules including a seminar (in total 54 ECTS), 3 elective modules (in total 18 ECTS) and the Master's thesis (in total 48 ECTS).
The curriculum of the program includes not only the core business administration disciplines i.e. "Marketing", "Accounting", " Finance", "Management & Organization" and "Quantitative Methods" but also covers the field of "Management Information Systems" (with one compulsory module and several elective modules). Nowadays, companies are intensively dealing with the topic of digital transformation. Therefore, the topic was considered important for business administration education and some "Management Information Systems" modules were included in the curriculum. The first semester of the program consists of one compulsory module each from the fields of "Marketing", "Quantitative Methods", "Accounting" and "Finance”. In the second semester, students are expected to participate at one module each in the fields of "Management & Organization” and "Management Information Systems" and two elective modules. The elective modules in the curriculum are differentiated into the fields of "Marketing", "Accounting", "Finance", "Management & Organization", "Quantitative Methods" and "Management Information Systems". The third and fourth semester consists of the Master's colloquium and the preparation of the Master's thesis.
