Innovation and entrepreneurship are the drivers of a successful Business idea. Sometimes they are even used synonymously, but they are not the same thing. One thing is clear: one cannot contribute to the successful implementation of innovative concepts without the other. No matter how good an idea is, if the entrepreneurial flair is missing, it usually remains just an idea. And vice versa, the Market can hardly be rolled up from behind if a new development is just yesterday's news. With the MBA programme in Innovation & Entrepreneurship, you will acquire the necessary tools to drive innovative business ideas forward with entrepreneurial competence and successfully place them on the Market.


Innovation and entrepreneurship go hand in hand. Your MBA Innovation & Entrepreneurship makes you doubly indispensable. With your MBA, YOU have several options for your career choice. Become, for example:

Founder / Managing director

With your own innovative business model, you challenge the established industry’s best players, and initiate a modernisation of the entire economy. You can do this with your own start-up or as a managing director in an existing company. After you have brought your business idea to the market, you have to place it there skilfully and ensure its long-term success. Depending on the size of your company, you may also have other management and leadership tasks.
