The master degree programme prepares students for demanding specialist and leadership roles in the financial sector, particularly in banking and insurance, both at home and abroad. You'll gain a comprehensive understanding of the challenges facing the banking and insurance industry, and learn to take an integrated business management approach.


As part of the Master’s degree programme in Banking and Insurance Management, we will provide you with extensive relevant expertise in the banking and insurance sector. We will train you to become the decision-makers of the future in the finance sector. You will also learn about the international finance system and regulatory standards. Your awareness of responsible corporate management will enable you to engage in in-depth discussions of the individual aspects of banking and insurance management.

We place particular importance on developing and furthering your methodological, social and leadership skills in several lectures. Your professional expertise in strategy, leadership and process and project management will allow you to complete managerial tasks in the banking and insurance industry in a targeted and efficient manner.

Scientific thought processes and actions are important to us. It is essential that you learn how to apply and demonstrate your knowledge in an appropriate manner. You will develop your scientific skills further as part of the course. Your expertise in this area will be put to the test as part of your Master’s thesis.

At the start of the course, you will decide whether to pursue the direction of Bank Management or Insurance Management from the second semester onward. During the third semester, this choice will influence the majority of the classes you will attend. The focus will be on conveying an understanding of the cause-and-effect relationship of successful and value-oriented corporate management in banks and insurance companies.
