Study content This is what you learn in the Master in Automotive Management

The Master in Automotive Management programme is divided into different units. The basic modules prepare you for your future research work and support you in the further development of your leadership skills. During the elective modules and project work, you will deal with the essential issues of your professional field, consolidate newly acquired knowledge and grow as a leader.

Every person is different. Numerous ways to do a Master's degree at EBS.

We have designed the EBS master programmes to be flexible, depending on your level of knowledge, skills and goals. Take the study path that best suits you and your circumstances:


Semester Abroad Track
The Semester Abroad Track comprises two semesters at EBS University, one semester at one of our partner universities abroad and concludes with the thesis.


Practice Track
You have already gained sufficient experience abroad and would now like to focus on practical experience? Then the Practice Track is perfect. This includes two semesters of study at EBS University, an intensive, long internship in the third semester and a final thesis.


German Track
An option developed explicitly for non-German-speaking students. In addition to the lectures, you will receive compulsory German lessons (Business and General) and will not go abroad in the third semester, but stay at EBS in Germany. This enables you to improve your prospects for a career in Germany. In the fourth semester, you complete your studies with your thesis.


Accelerated Track

(prerequisite: Bachelor degree with 240 ECTs)
Fast-track your career. If you meet the relevant requirements and have already gained experience abroad, you can shorten the master programme to 2 semesters.


Dual Degree
You can obtain another international degree (MBA or Master) in addition to your EBS degree. Extend your study abroad at one of our partner universities by one semester and receive a double degree. In this way, you gain more expertise in a broader international context. And you increase your global market value.

Challenged Based Learning

Experience top-class expert lectures and a strong practical orientation. In addition to interactive lectures, there is an emphasis on case studies and real-world projects, so the degree program reflects cutting-edge management practices. In addition, close collaboration with industry leaders and practitioners is encouraged to equip students with the skills, competencies and mindsets required in today's global economy.

Many possibilities. One language.
At EBS University you will study at an international level and in an international environment. That's why all lectures and events are, of course, held in English.

It could hardly be more international.

International professors and lecturers, study groups with high diversity or an integrated stay abroad are without question the best preparation for a career in international top management.

Get to know the lecturers: EBS University is one of the leading business universities in Germany, but we are not satisfied with that: our professors aim to make the Faculty of Business Administration, as a management-focused business school, a leader in Europe. In the Master's program, professors with many years of practical experience as well as internationally renowned researchers teach. They all work together to shape leaders for the future.


Our faculty is supported by members of the adjunct faculty. You will be taught by experts who hold top positions in business or are active in leading companies.
