Master Management & Organisation Studies

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 Master's programme MOS primarily aims to enable its participants in times of globalisation, high economic dynamics and societal changes to adopt a behavioural perspective and thereby promote and shape the competitive factor "human competence, creativity and motivation" in its development and use in organisations and global networks.

The MOS degree programme is unique in Germany in its international behavioural science orientation (organisational behaviour, human resource management and leadership, innovation, technology and network management) in combination with elective options from related economic and technical fields and is designed to develop a systemic and multidisciplinary understanding. The programme is supported by an outstanding combination of three professorships in organisational studies, human resources management and leadership studies, as well as innovation and technology management, all of which are oriented towards the behavioural sciences, at a faculty of economics. The internationally oriented degree programme also offers numerous individual options within the framework of in-depth business competences and with regard to sustainability management. In this specialist combination and with a close connection to current research findings, students can acquire a sought-after Competence profile in the professional world here. 


Why MOS? - 5 Special features of the degree programme

  1. Linking personnel, organisation, innovation

  2. Application projects

  3. Integrated semester abroad

  4. Integrated English-language domestic semester

  5. 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)
