The MBA&E is an international, postgraduate programme combining business administration and engineering. In addition to its cross-disciplinary core, three specialisation options are offered: Automotive Management (AM), Interdisciplinary Management (IM), Global Leadership in Engineering (GLE), Global Procurement (GL) and Lean Management (LM).

The AM specialisation prepares the students for work in the global automotive industry. Typical positions include technical and management jobs at automotive OEMs and suppliers. The IM specialization has a sharper focus on the management of complex technical projects where experts of different disciplines contribute. The LM specialisation provides the students with production and business process optimisation competence.

When applying to any any technical management positions, the cross-discplinary programme will provide you with a clear competitive advantage over the traditional either technical or management competition.

Typical positions after graduation are such as project manager, product manager and process manager.
Prof. Dr. Soeren Dressler

Studying in Berlin

Berlin is a city of constant change. Nobody ever stands still and nothing ever stays the same. Turn your attention elsewhere for too long and the city will have evolved right under your feet. The city was always on the cutting edge (Berlin is the birthplace of cabaret and techno, the one-time residence of Bauhaus, Bertolt Brecht and David Bowie), but since 1989 and the fall of the Berlin Wall, Berlin has become the largest site of new development in Europe. Never before has such a large city had the opportunity to recreate itself. And Berlin is certainly taking to the task quite admirably. Whether it is the glamour and glitz of the Sony Centre on Potsdamer Platz, Daniel Libeskind's new Jewish Museum, the hip cafes in Prenzlauer Berg, or the refined elegance of the newly founded diplomatic quarter, status quo is now very unfashionable in Berlin.

Berlins future definitely looks bright. The Federal Government has nearly completed its move from Bonn and the vast amount of federal money poured into the city to prepare it for the governments arrival is starting to yield results. Tourists are starting to take notice as well - with more and more international visitors making the rounds to the most important sights.

An extremely multi-cultural city of almost 4 million people - with the cultural resources to match - there is almost always something going on in Berlin. Whether you are into art museums, cinema, theatre, opera, discos or the café scene, there is certain to be something here to fit your tastes. You are more of an outdoors person? Berlin is also one of the greenest cities in Europe - even within the city limits, you will find a spot where you can get away from it all.

Berlin has the largest, and most diverse, student population in Germany. The 140,000 students who call Berlin home give a great lift to the city's spirit. As the European Union expands eastward, Berlin stands poised to take a very central position on the continent. Now is certainly a good time to say: "Ich bin ein Berliner!"
