Description/content

Many companies today are looking for managers with a background in engineering or natural sciences. They need passionate individuals who combine entrepreneurial skills and a detailed knowledge of business with a solid understanding of innovation and technology. Our Bachelor in Management & Technology gives you the interdisciplinary focus you need, putting you at a distinct advantage when it comes to shaping your career.

The programme combines courses in management (70% of your studies) with a specialisation in technologies focusing on digital technologies (30%). Our teaching draws on the latest research and state-of-the-art industrial practice. As well as lectures, we run regular tutorials and small-group seminars. Practical experience is ensured through project studies.

Throughout the course of your studies, we will prepare you for your career in the fields of management or technology by imparting a fundamental understanding of business issues and a basic understanding of technologies and innovations.

When you are nearing graduation, our Career Service will be at your disposal to help you launch your professional career. We have strong connections with many leading firms.
