Master's Study Course

An academic additional qualification, executed "on the job", providing financial independence and an individualisable, vocational Master's programme: this is precisely what distinguishes the dual, career-integrating Master's study courses at the Center for Advanced Studies (CAS), a cross-location institution of the Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW). In research papers and the master's thesis, the current and future challenges as well as tasks in the company are analysed and proposals for improvements and suggested solutions, which are ready for implementation, will be developed by utilising scientific methods. Also, in the learning events and lectures, the professors will address questions for individual practical situations in small groups during the two to five-day attendance blocks. The students are able to bring in the knowledge gained from their first degree as well as their professional experience.

For graduates, who have already absolved a first-degree programme, and who have already gained some work experience, the DHBW can provide career-integrating, ongoing educational Master's study courses. They are characterised by the following features:

  • Job-integrating and job-accompanying
  • A broad range of courses covering current topics
  • High flexibility by utilising individual selection options

Students are offered precisely customised possibilities from the fields of business, economics, technology, social work and health. Depending on the study course selected, the graduates will receive the academic degree of Master of Arts (M.A.), Master of Engineering (M.Eng.), Master of Science (M.Sc.) or Master of Business Administration (MBA). The continuous exchange with the dual partner companies always guarantees a high degree of market relevance for the various degree study courses.
