Why you should study Social Management
With a Master's degree, you can not only expand, deepen and specialise your knowledge in a specific subject area. In the course of your IU studies, you will also be taught more in-depth content, methodologies and skills, which many employers regard as an additional professional qualification. In many professions, a Master's degree is a prerequisite for a career or an academic career. In addition to significantly more attractive career opportunities, possible experience abroad and valuable contacts in the business world, you can usually also expect a significantly better starting salary. This means that an internationally recognised Master's degree offers you a whole repertoire of advantages that you could be denied with a pure Bachelor's degree.
