      Students train to present content in a way that is appropriate to the target group and situation, in particular problem analysis. They acquire the ability to identify business management fields of action and develop appropriate solutions. Furthermore, they learn to discuss complex subject-specific concepts and derive comprehensible proposals for preparing decisions.

    • Interdisciplinary and systemic thinking

      Participants develop the ability to recognize the interfaces between business administration, law, society and ecology and to determine the well-founded interaction of these systems. They also learn how to deal appropriately with interdisciplinary challenges and develop suitable solutions for specific situations.

    • (Strategic) planning and implementation skills

      The aim is to develop strategies and implementation plans for the further development of processes in organizations and for overcoming challenges. This includes the incorporation of analysis results and the consideration of stakeholders and interdisciplinary framework conditions, including legal, sustainability and social aspects.

    • Decision-making capabilities

      We enable students to make evidence-based and comprehensible decisions in complex and unfamiliar situations, including different perspectives and innovative approaches to solutions.
