Master Management & Organization Studies        Akkreditierungssiegel für den MOS-Studiengang

The competitiveness of organisations and economic areas, their innovative capacity and productivity is highly dependent on the knowledge, skills and creativity of the workforce. In addition, an urgent need for action is emphasised in politics, society and especially among economic actors with regard to shaping this competitive factor in the context of the fourth industrial revolution (digitalisation).

The MOS Master’s program primarily aims to enable its participants to adopt a behavior-oriented perspective in times of global crises, high economic dynamics and social changes and thereby to promote and shape the competitive factor “human competence, creativity and motivation” in its development and use in organizations and global networks.

The MOS degree program is unique in Germany in its international behavioral science orientation (strategy, organizational behavior, human resources management and leadership, innovation, technology and sustainability management) in conjunction with options from related economic and technical fields, aimed at developing a systemic and multidisciplinary understanding. The degree program is supported by an excellent combination of four behavioral science-oriented professorships in organizational theory, human resources management and leadership theory, sustainability management and innovation and technology management at a business faculty. The internationally oriented degree program also offers numerous individual options in the context of in-depth business management skills. In this specialist combination and with a close connection to current research findings, students can acquire a sought-after competency profile in the professional world


Why MOS? - 7 Special features of the degree programme

  1. Linking personnel, organization, innovation and sustainability

  2. Social science orientation

  3. International orientation (integrated semester abroad &/or English-speaking semester in Germany)

  4. Close care relationship and family atmosphere

  5. Integration of Anglo-Saxon teaching concepts

  6. Application orientation through application projects and case studies

  7. Short transition period to the job


We are certified by the United Nations for our sustainable management education at the faculty. We align our teaching and practice with the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Management Education. (PRME)

MOS poem for the business game

On the occasion of our rescheduled business game in SS22, creative peak performances developed, which culminated in the first MOS poem on the business game. This historically important work is hereby presented to an interested public. May it inspire further generations!

 

What's wrong with jeleeschn?


We can't get out
of this green house.

When the environment bothers us,
we are all outraged.

Every period the same porridge.
At the end of the day there is a lot of screaming.
Communication goes past each other.
But we won't be there tomorrow.

Even in the rules, no one has a plan
and major problems are simply dismissed.

But we don't want to red, blue or yellow
because we like it so much in house green.

Now we're in the mood for beer.
Unfortunately we have to wait until four.

Nevertheless, we learned a lot
from this wonderful business game.

PS:
Please no destructive feedback from Prof. Hüsig.
Because: Writing the poem was very idle.
