INCLUSIVE INTO THE FUTURE. Study Diversity Management (MBA).

In modern companies, the topic of diversity has long since outgrown the status of purely fulfilling obligations. In our globalised world, diversity means one thing above all: a strong competitive advantage. Demographic change, the internationalisation of markets and digitalisation mean that the customer base of many companies is becoming increasingly diverse. Diversity-oriented recruiting drives innovative thinking in companies. Last but not least, diversity helps to open up new markets and thus ensure the company's success.

First of all, you will acquire the business basics that you need to master as an MBA. These include leadership, international marketing, strategic management and performance measurement. With this basic knowledge, you will start your specialisation in diversity management. You will first focus on inclusion. You will work on the terms participation, self-determination and intersectionality and examine their interactions. You will deal with the question of how you can change systems and structures so that self-determination becomes possible. In doing so, you will always have the most important question in mind: How can you integrate participation into an existing system? Finally, you will approach your core topic: diversity management. You will deal with the challenges of diversity management as well as its potentials. To do this, you will look at current and practice-relevant aspects from different perspectives on the basis of current studies and statements on this topic. In this way, you will learn about concepts and approaches of diversity management in different contexts, sectors and countries, and you will be able to compare and evaluate them in a practical way. You will be able to apply your newly acquired knowledge directly to your subsequent capstone project. 

Information on accreditation and state approval can be found on the sub-page of the degree program.
