Program Description

Multifaceted and interdisciplinary

The weighting of the course content of the MBA&E establishes a dual focus on topics drawn equally from business administration and technological subjects. Graduates from this course are equipped not only with exceptional specialist skills but develop an analytical mindset applicable to a variety of industries and business functions. We seek to train every MBA&E graduate to become a robust, interdisciplinary problem solver – professional, creative and collaborative. Five specialization options give the students the flexibility to take their careers in the desired direction:

  • Automotive Management
  • Interdisciplinary Management
  • Lean Management
  • Global Procurement
  • Global Leadership in Engineering (new in 2018; international / leadership experience required)


Close to business practice

As a postgraduate programme of study, the course accepts applications from students with backgrounds in engineering, management, and more. As a young professional, you already possess the in-depth skills specific to your discipline. By taking the MBA&E, you will develop a holistic understanding of the wider business process. MBA&E graduates are "gap-bridgers" – specialists in their respective functions yet fully conversant with mainstream results-oriented management practices. Global companies need such "T-shaped people" - would you like to become one?BUAS2

Personal and international

The MBA&E family of students and graduates is drawn from over 50 countries around the world. Mechanical engineering, industrial management, intercultural communication, economics, material sciences, airplane design, nuclear physics, and software engineering – these represent but a handful of the backgrounds from which our students come. Can you imagine a broader networking opportunity? This course is all about learning vital business skills in a tight-knit international group. Experiencing one of the world’s most culturally diverse cities, you will have the opportunity to improve your soft skills, to form lasting friendships and simply to have fun. We look forward to welcoming you to the MBA&E family!
