Subject Matter

As a consecutive program, the Master's in Business Education builds on the Bachelor's program. On the Master's program, technical skills in the areas of initiation, (further) development and management of professional (business) education are taught in various institutional contexts (e.g. schools or companies). Students will also learn interdisciplinary and research skills in the field of (empirical) professional training research. This will enable graduates to assume responsible specialist and management functions at institutions offering curricular and extra-curricular professional education and training, as well as at research institutes. In addition to basic specialist training, the Business Education program is characterized in particular by targeted and systematic teaching of analytical and methodological skills that enable students to perform challenging management and specialist tasks in the areas of professional education and staff development. The greater inclusion of methodological and research skills in the Master's program gives graduates an outstanding quality and skills profile that is recognized in national and international competition.
