Structure of the study program

The Master’s program in Technology-Entrepreneurship consists of 3 semesters and starts annually in winter semester.

In the first two semesters of study, compulsory modules cover the diverse aspects of entrepreneurial issues. In the Technology Project module (1st and 2nd  semester), you can work on your own start-up project or carry out the technology project in cooperation with a company.

In addition to the compulsory modules, you have several options for individual specialization. For example, in the second semester you choose one of three possible specialization modules from the areas of Start-ups, Corporate Entrepreneurship, or Company Succession. In the third semester, two elective modules offer the opportunity to specialize in various areas (e.g. data science, robotics, or platform economics). In addition, you will complete your Master's thesis in the third semester and take the Master's colloquium.

Master's thesis

In the third semester, you will write your Master's thesis within a period of four months. The thesis will be supervised by a lecturer of the program, whom you can choose. Setting aside the practical relevance of the thesis, we attach great importance to an adequate academic level of the thesis.


The courses are mainly taught in German language, some are held in English as language of instruction. This will be announced by the lecturer at the beginning of each semester. At the University's own Foreign Language Institute all students can deepen their own language skills in lessons with native speakers.
