Why study with us?
Theoretical and practical knowledge for your future in a management position
The MBA programme at the Wildau Institute of Technology (WIT) brings together the economic expertise of our experienced lectures and the scientific excellence of the Technical University Wildau, one of Germany’s strongest research universities of applied sciences. The Technical University has a strong research focus in economics and defined digital integration as a crosscutting theme. We have developed the study programme based on the wide range of practical experiences of managers, who are our lecturers as well. The university professors also have gained their own management experience from previous employment (for example at Berliner Bank, DLR, Lufthansa, MTU, Schering) and from current project work in business/industry. The MBA programme at the WIT is proud to look back on more than ten years of achievement and benefits from the strong research activities.
The part-time study structure allows you to work and at the same time to complete a fully recognized degree. Through small study groups, intensive weeks of classes and excellent facilities, this programme offers you not only an effective learning experience, but also by the best possible service and support from all our staff. We are proud of creating a programme that is shaped by its practical approach and international perspective.
The Master of Business Administration is designed for graduates with an engineering or scientific background as well as economists and social scientists. The skills acquired in this MBA programme will, in combination with your previous professional expertise, enable you to lead a larger business unit on your own, assume the management of a smaller business or work at a management level in a large business. One typical job prospect after your graduation from the MBA programme at WIT might be a position as a manager of a foreign branch, of a larger production plant, the management of a subsidiary, or a leading position in the headquarters of a company or an association.
