This master course is supporting companies and students in their global business development, technology transfer and especially in their international business activities. The current degree program is always pivoted around a unique project at the interface of technology and management that is developed by each student. This means that our sustainable educational concept has customized, adaptable and flexible concept, considering the requirements and conditions of each particular business situation (students’ professional background, organizational peculiarities of the sponsoring company, training objectives, etc.).
The ‘project-competence’ degree program is a job-integrated study program with online courses, online colloquium, self-study activities, project papers and master thesis. The master program is based on a real-life project that a student receives from a supervising company. The project is then developed by a student during the whole study period. The courses are used to deliver theoretical knowledge and help students develop their competences in the use of methods important to accomplish the project in question. Students are supported and supervised by internationally active professors and experts. In this way, both the company and the student receive benefits in the form of qualified support and consulting during the entire period of study and writing/defending the Master’s thesis.
The high standards of the SGIT program as well as the organizational network of the Steinbeis conglomerate allow us to train specialists in virtually all areas of management and production.
