I learnt best in management lessons at the University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer. Inclusion of Quality Management Systems as one of the modules in this curriculum landed me a job. Each module taught here is well planned, upcoming students should choose one FOCUS topic. Because this program had Quality Management Systems as a Module, I wanted to make specialization in the same and I did it!

from India

The Simulation(serious) Games on ERP-systems and Business Management subject really help to learn things practically. In ERP-Systems, we used SAP S4/HANA, Tableau, and Signavio tools, which is very helpful when applying for full-time jobs or internships. I was impressed by the structure of the Technical Management program, which teaches both technical and management skills. Working in teams, especially in ERP-Simulation and Business Management, was one of the best memories because it allows you to work more competitively to win the game.

The master studies of Technical Management helped me adapt to the dynamic automotive industry in Germany. The time in Emden also helped me to collaborate with various cultures to develop a multidimensional personality. The course of Advanced Project Management has had a great impact on my professional career and to achieve specific business goals. The course structure was very well structured and unique which highly motivated me to opt for Technical Management at the University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer against other universities in Germany.

Project management, Strategic planning (technology forecasting), and business model generation are some of the skills I developed during the studies. All the modules are interconnected; interesting and really helps you to comprehend the holistic view of the business. Thanks to the course, I wrote my master thesis on scenario planning which indeed had a great impact in my career. The course offered a wide variety of modules (comprising both management and engineering). The course was in English and taught by experienced professors. Moreover, location is quite good. Emden is a small and lovely town.
