The Master's programme in Business Administration at the IU University will provide you with the methodical tools and strategic problem-solving skills you urgently require. By consolidating your theoretical knowledge in a practice-oriented way, you will later be able to analyse the most complex business contexts and solve the resulting challenges. Depending on your chosen specialisation, you will later work either in the strategic or administrative field - whether as a managing director, management consultant or head of finance departments. 

The IU Master's programme in Business Administration reinforces the specialist knowledge you gained in your Bachelor's programme and expands it in terms of business management methods and decision making. In order to best prepare you for the future challenges as a specialist and manager, current topics and trends such as the digital transformation are also taken into account. In this way, you will be able to pose concrete questions and devise solutions for complex problems within the business practice. In the course of your studies, you can broaden your professional knowledge even further in the direction of a company function or a specific business sector or specialise in selected areas such as management consulting, digital business and entrepreneurship as well as risk management.
