▶ Managerial Accounting
Objectives: To master the “language of managerial accounting” and to learn the fundamental concepts, methods and tools for measuring and managing the performance of your company
▶ Managerial Economics
Objectives: Corporate ventures into international activities should be preceded by a systematic and professional analysis of the external (economic/political etc.) environment of the host country. Economic stability forms one of the basic requirements for the achievement of adequate returns on investment and as such substantially influences the strategic planning process of multinational enterprises. The course will provide a sound introduction to these topics and will make participants familiar with methods to assess macroeconomic risks and policy concepts.
▶ International Marketing
Objectives: Participants will acquire essential knowhow in the field of international marketing based on the international marketing mix.
▶ Advanced Seminar in Business Development
Objectives: Participants will be exposed to various marketing and strategy tools within a sectoral, regional, international and/or intercultural setting. This module may take place at a foreign partner university (currently Pfeiffer University, Charlotte, USA). Participants are expected to deepen their knowledge in the field of international marketing and strategy and its relevance to corporate activities.
▶ Digital Business
Objectives: Enable students to analyze, explain, and assess digital business models, their structure, and their components, thereby preparing students to assume an active, leading role in the development, implementation, management, and ongoing improvement of digital business models. Empower students to (help) design, plan, manage, and support the digital transformation of a company.
▶ Foundations of Business Administration
Objectives: After completing this module participants should be in a position to define and interpret the basic concepts of business administration. A business management game will provide participants with an opportunity to practice newly acquired skills.
▶ Leadership Competence
Objectives: The focus of this module will be on the development of leadership skills required to accept senior managerial responsibilities. In addition, staff involved in international operations will need specific social and intercultural competence in counseling, communicating and negotiating. The unit will therefore focus on both cognitive and applied points of view as well as aspects of intercultural training and communication.
▶ Research Skills, Case Studies and Projectscourse
Objectives: This module will provide an opportunity to apply theoretical processes to 'real-life' cases. Particular importance is attached to the transferability of such knowledge to the individual participants' workplace environment. Students are expected to explore new concepts and apply creative solutions to business processes and problems. Included is also a two-day case study module with the Bergamo Master course in Italy. In addition, basic research skills required to conduct scientific (market based) research, will be developed. This course may be used to develop the basic structure for the master thesis.
▶ Strategic and Operative Management

Particular attention will be paid to the development of relevant skills in change, project and operative management required to implement strategies.
▶ Financial Accounting
Objectives: This module develops the student's ability to read, understand, and use corporate financial statements. It is oriented toward the user of financial accounting data (rather than the preparer) and emphasizes the reconstruction of economic events from published accounting reports such as balance sheets, income statements and statements of cash flow. The course covers not only the German Accounting Rules (HGB), but also International Accounting Standards (IAS).
▶ Selected Topics in Financial Theory and Practice
Objectives: Participants of the module shall understand to apply the toolkit of investment and finance analysis in the field of their particular professional environment.
▶ MBA Thesis: Candidates completing the master's thesis are expected to use their theoretical understanding to deal with a practical business issue in a methodologically appropriate manner.
