Study objectives

After your studies you will have gained knowledge and capability in the integration of complexity and change into management and decision making. You will also have a command of core areas of international management.

This knowledge and capability opens up a number of opportunities for you as a practising manager. You will be competent in adopting a global perspective as a manager. Negotiation and decision making will be key assets that enable you to operate effectively in a global business context. The ability to think holistically and consider the relationships between issues as they affect the organization will further support your managerial ambitions.

Furthermore, you will be able to bridge cultural differences across the organisation’s activities and relationships.
Finally, you will be qualified to study for a doctoral degree in Germany and abroad.

It’s my pleasure to be a part of HTW Dresden, students came from all over the world. Studying in international teams allowed me to experience different working styles and learning something new from each of them. Study groups are small which allows interaction and discussion with the professors.
