As most companies are either already operating internationally or are looking to enter the global market, there is a high demand for qualified professionals with a broad knowledge of the trends and interdependences in the international business world.

Most companies manage their work in project teams; project managers organize tasks, time, budget and resources for projects of all sizes and in various industries. The responsibilities of the project manager are various and include keeping people on track, delivering the end result within the budget and on time. Without a well educated project manager, projects lack organization and become vulnerable to failure.

The Master's programme MPMD will enable you to successfully plan, organize and execute projects. By teaching you techniques of data mining you will be able to understand and use the data your project and the project environment generates and use the information to deliver your project on time, on budget and with the right quality.

You will be able to work in areas such as

  • Project Management
  • Controlling
  • HR
  • Marketing
  • Data Analysis
