This Is Why You Should Study Strategy & Organization in Witten:

You learn intensively in small groups

One professor in our Master’s degree program Strategy & Organization mentors an average of 19.1 students. This is far below the average of 89 students per professor in North Rhine-Westphalia. For you, this means intensive courses, lively discussions, and interaction whenever you need it.

You study with a high level of practical orientation - from day one!

You start your Master's program with a kick-off project. In a team with other students, you spend a week developing ideas, solutions, and measures for a real company. Throughout your studies, you will always have the opportunity to apply current theory to practice. For example, in your own (research) projects, where you will consolidate the contents of your studies (Independent Studies and Independent Projects).

You compile your study profile

In addition to state-of-the-art methodology and theories of economics, you set your focus during your studies. Do you see yourself more in the area of strategy? More in organization? Or are you looking for the perfect balance? You decide and put together your modules according to your ideas and thus develop your profile and create the basis for your career start - or even your doctoral thesis after graduation.
