Industrial Management/Automobile Industry (B.Sc.)

General Information

The Industrial Management/Automobile Industry (B.Sc.) degree programme creates the optimum conditions for a career in the automotive industry.

Our faculty is located at the heart of the German automotive industry – in close proximity to vehicle manufacturers such as Daimler/Mercedes-Benz or Porsche and automotive suppliers such as Bosch or Mahle. These are the best possible conditions for a degree programme which really does do justice to the requirements of this dynamic sector.

The automotive industry is facing sweeping changes. A wide variety of new developments are necessary to cope with changing ideas about which mobility provisions make most sense and the need for environmental friendliness and resource conservation. Our degree programmes offer our students the best possible preparation to deal with the tensions this creates between the opposing poles of business administration and engineering.
