Make use of our Double Master's Program in Technology Management

Are you passionate about engineering or science, but you want to go a step further? How about adding general management know-how, leadership skills, expertise in entrepreneurial management and proficiency in another foreign language to your profile?

Our Double Degree Master´s Program in Technology Management meets the industry demand for engineering or science with an education in management. The international community of students and lecturers at the NIT creates an intercultural atmosphere in which individual learning is made possible through freedom and intensive learning support.


Sound management studies with practical relevance

At the NIT, students develop skills to master current and future challenges related to digitization. In projects, they learn to design and implement business ideas - whether in established companies or in their own start-ups. In this way, students at the NIT learn to make sustainable, strategic and operative decisions in technology management.

They train their soft skills and learn another language. Many of our students choose the Double Master, which combines management studies at the NIT with engineering studies at the TUHH. Thus, both the lecturers and students constantly contribute new ideas from a technical perspective.

Technology Management at NIT + Engineering or Science at TUHH

With our Double Master Program, you will graduate with two Master's degrees. Here's how it works: at the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH), you enroll for an engineering or science M.Sc. program of your choice, combining it with an M.A. or an MBA in Technology Management at the NIT.

With this combination of degrees, your skills will be in demand as you will be able to combine technical know-how with a firm grasp of management in an international and agile marketplace.




The duration of the NIT´s master program can be flexibly adapted through our modular learning concept. A realistic plan for the Double Master (including M.Sc. (TUHH) and MBA/M.A. (NIT) thesis) should allot at least 5 semesters for both degrees.

The NIT curriculum - Modular and innovative

At the NIT, we reflect a modern and agile work environment through our innovative learning concepts: we do not focus on lecturing, but rather on student learning through many dynamic, practical, and socially-integrated projects.

Modules from the areas of classical management, self-development, innovation management, company foundation, and digitalization familiarize students with the entrepreneurial challenges of the future. Topics such as ethics, law, and IT security further expand on important aspects of technology management. In addition, students can learn programming and familiarize themselves with real projects with relevant innovation methods such as design thinking.
