Master in Automotive Management
The Master in automotive Management is designed in collaboration with partners from the automotive industry. It contains compulsory core modules, tailored to the automotive sector, international experience, an internship and the Master’s thesis. Furthermore, the courses offered cover a wide range of focus areas important for future challenges to the industry.
The EBS Master of science degree in automotive Management is the first of its kind in the German and European education sector. Since the first class graduated in 2012 alumni are pursuing careers with OEMS, suppliers, consulting firms, financial institutions and in numerous other industry sectors.
Connection to the Corporate World
The Master in automotive Management is a programme that carefully balances theory and practice. It is underpinned by regular interaction with German automobile manufacturers, suppliers, mobility associations and policymakers. Programme content is constantly reviewed and evaluated with various stakeholders from the automotive industry to ensure it is up to date, relevant and close to practice. Field trips, case studies, extracurricular events such as workshops with experts and guest lectures, and an internship all give you the opportunity to make direct contact with our corporate partners.
As a graduate, you will be equipped with a sound understanding of issues central to the automotive sector, the tools to tackle current and future challenges and the managerial skill set to excel in an international arena. Major global suppliers, such as the numerous “hidden champions” in Germany and abroad, are seeking young professionals with a profound understanding of the industry. Additionally, the automotive sector is being revolutionized by several start-ups, requiring customer-driven experts, who can develop strategies to address future mobility challenges. EBS graduates usually join management trainee programmes or take on middle-management roles in finance, sales, marketing or brand management.
In order for you to get real working experience and the best shot at entry-level positions, an internship with a duration of a minimum of six weeks is integrated into the programme. This can be planned to suit your individual career goals.
Semester Abroad and Dual Degree Option
Getting international experience is essential for a business leader. That’s why it’s compulsory to either spend a semester abroad at one of our 240 partner institutions or continue your stay in Germany (for students whose degree was obtained in a non-German-speaking country). You can also spend an extra semester abroad and combine your EBS Master’s qualification with an MBA or a specialist Master’s degree from your host university.
Special Preparation Semester for Students with a non-business degree
At EBS, you can even earn an internationally recognized Master of Science without holding a degree in business studies. For students who have a non-business Bachelor’s degree e.g. in computer science, Political science, law or engineering, we are proud to offer a preparation semester with the required business knowledge for the EBS Master’s programme. The preparation semester is begun the semester before starting the Master of Science.
German Track for students who have already studied abroad
Instead of spending a semester abroad, students with a degree from a non-German-speaking country can spend a further semester at EBS in Germany, giving them the opportunity to learn more about the country and the culture. Over three semesters at EBS, you will be able to improve your German language and intercultural skills enormously. And greatly improve your job perspectives in a German multinational organization after your graduation.
