The environment in which firms, consumers and governments act today calls for a systematic analysis of strategic interaction, comprehensive decision-making processes, and flexible adaptation strategies. The research-oriented M.Sc. Program in Management and Economics offers a unique education that combines state-of-the-art management tools with game-theoretic concepts.

Managers of today’s firms operate in a global environment and must be prepared to quickly react to changing business and market conditions, competitors’ actions, and internal governance problems. The Management and Economics program provides students with the methodological tools for the analysis of business and market environments with a core focus on managerial economics, personnel economics, behavioral economics and industrial organization.

The courses offered in the program deal with the strategic behavior of competing firms and focus on implementing management tools within the firms to provide an informa-tional basis for successful business strategies, show how to use the firm’s accounting system for decision-making purposes, and account for potential information asymmetries. Moreover, students learn how to select appropriate performance measures, design efficient incentive systems and develop strategies to build up and maintain the human capital needed in the firm.

Students of this program develop analytical and professional skills and learn how to apply advanced methods of game theory and principal-agent theory to understand the implications of strategic interaction among different players.


The M.Sc. in Management and Economics is designed as a 3-semester program, taught according to the European Credit Transfer System. Successful completion requires students to achieve a total of 90 ECTS credits.

Core courses teach the essentials of management and economics and emphasize the link between both areas. Specialization studies allow students to specialize according to their individual interests and abilities. Electives can be chosen from courses in business administration and in economics.


Graduates from our M.Sc. in Management and Economics have excellent career prospects, both in the private sector and in governmental and international institutions. They will be attractive candidates in particular for strategic management and leadership positions in international companies, consulting firms, banks, and insurance companies.

Ph.D. track

Due to its strong methodological focus, the M.Sc. in Management and Economics serves as an excellent foundation for pursuing an academic career. Students may study the program on a Ph.D. track, putting themselves on a fast track to a doctoral degree. To complete the Ph.D. track, a minimum of 18 ECTS credits must be earned in Ph.D.-oriented courses. Moreover, students need to fulfill the Master thesis requirement by writing an academic paper that may serve as a starting point for their Ph.D. thesis.


Admission to the Master of Science in Management and Economics requires a Bachelor’s degree in Economics or´Business Administration with excellent grades. Applicants are expected to have solid intermediate level knowledge in quantitative methods of economics and microeconomic theory. Students entering with a 3-year Bachelor’s degree (amounting to 180 ECTS credits) are required to earn 30 additional ECTS credits (adding a fourth semester) in order to obtain a Master’s degree.

The entire program is taught in English. Applicants should therefore have an excellent command of the English language. Knowledge of German is not required to complete the program. The program is free of tuition fees for all EU residents. The state of Baden-Württemberg has introduced fees for international non-EU students and second-degree students.
