Students will find the Master Management at Karlshochschule International University to be an environment where management, cultural and social sciences, theory and practice, ethics and sustainability come together – and where these phenomena are not taken for granted, but where students reflect them critically and empathically.


Key Features

In contrast to the prevailing concept of 'man-as-machine' in management studies, you need to understand what makes people tick, how they shape and are shaped by culture, and how society as a whole progresses in order to be successful at what you do. Young professionals like you need to be qualified for management and leadership functions in business – but beyond that, in society. In that, you are able to understand, accompany and actively design social and cultural change in any management position you would like to obtain.

That is what we provide in this Management degree at Karlshochschule International University. We don't spoon-feed you mere factual knowledge or a 'universal truth'. You do get insights into relevant fields, theories and practices. But the focus is really on the interaction between everyone involved. Individual experiences and opinions are appreciated, discussed and worked on together. You will re-think established paths and tread new ones on the basis of an embodied sense of responsibility, empathy, sustainability, and expertise.
