# Distance learning

Language : German


The topic of Diversity has long since ceased to be a mere duty in modern companies. In our globalised world, it is primarily responsible for securing strong competitive advantages in a targeted manner. Especially as demographic changes, the lnternationalisation of Markets and Digitalisation are contributing to the fact that the customer base of many companies is also becoming more and more diverse. Consequently, diversity-oriented recruiting drives innovative thinking within the company. And it can help to open up new Markets and ensure the company's success in the long term.


59.7 per cent of companies in Germany that use diversity management as a strategy see an improvement in teamwork. 69.4 per cent are convinced that this will increase their attractiveness to applicants. As a result, more than half of the companies in Germany (53.1 per cent) have realigned their recruiting processes to make their staffing more inclusive and diverse. With your MBA in Diversity Management, you will be right up to date and have a wide range of job options. For example, you may become:

Inclusion & Diversity Manager

As a Diversity Manager, you will manage and support operational HR processes that promote diversity in companies. This primarily involves communication with different stakeholders and areas. You will work closely with Human Resources, employee representatives and internal and external diversity groups/organisations. Your other responsibilities will include supporting the Board on issues related to the strategic direction of diversity and the implementation of specific projects.

Why you should study Diversity Management (MBA) 

Whether a Master's programme or an MBA programme is the better choice for you depends entirely on your professional goals and your individual requirements. While a classic Master's programme allows you to further deepen the specialised knowledge you gained during a Bachelor's programme, an MBA focuses even more on imparting specialised knowledge such as leadership strategies and management skills. However, both forms of study offer excellent career prospects and attractive salary benefits if you want to start a new career, change industries or recommend yourself for higher positions. In any case, your IU degree programme will help you progress, as it not only provides you with specific Business Administration knowledge for a selected subject area, but above all optimally combines theory and practice
