YOUR MANAGEMENT SKILLS. PLUS SOCIAL EXPERTISE.

Even with all the social skills, the social sector is and will remain a business enterprise. As a Master of Arts in Social Management, you are a manager and specialist in one - and at the same time you also take on advisory functions. This requires special skills. Your social management studies will make you fit for the high demands placed on your future work in the social sector.  

With your master's degree in Social Management, you will face interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary challenges. You will deal with business administration and economics as well as legal backgrounds. In addition to subject-specific topics such as social innovations and quality management in the social sector, you can specialise even further during your studies. For example, in the areas of diversity management, data science and digital transformation - or soft skills such as communication and negotiation techniques. Financial management, accounting, human resources - your Master of Art in Social Management makes you a generalist for a very specific sector. And of course, studying social management also means dealing with a big, exciting topic: Ethics. 

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