Master Business Administration and Economics

The degree program Master Business Administration and Economics is aimed at those Bachelor's graduates who have completed their studies with particular success and would like to take on senior management tasks as part of their professional activities or who are planning to do a doctorate. This may also include graduates of related courses such as industrial engineering, business informatics or business mathematics or of another university course with a minor in economics.

The master's degree program can be seamlessly connected to the bachelor's degree program, but can also be taken up after a period of working in a chosen career field. Students can begin their studies in either the summer or winter semester. In addition to a good grade in their bachelor's degree, further admission requirements apply. The Master's program extends over four semesters and offers the possibility of specialization in a specific professional field. Master's students can choose between five study profiles, each with four to six subjects.

The Accounting & Finance specialization provides you with a career-oriented education for jobs in finance and banking, internal and external accounting, auditing and tax consulting, as well as insurance companies.

Management & Organizations prepares you for a variety of tasks in strategic management, marketing and market research, human resources as well as management consulting.

Specializing in Digitalization and Entrepreneurship leaves you perfectly equipped for a career in technology and innovation management for start-ups and established companies, (IT) project management and consulting, but also in production management, logistics or in the field of digitalization and information management.

The Economics specialization offers numerous paths to working in (central) banks, ministries and associations as well as policy consulting and research institutes.

Business and Economics allows you to take advantage of the English-language courses in the different specializations to tailor your master's program to your future career plans.

All specializations allow students to further develop their research interests by undertaking a doctorate following the master's program.

The central idea of integrative learning remains implemented in the master's program. Students choose at least two modules outside their study profile. Further elective options are available. As in the Bachelor's program, great importance is attached to the acquisition of key qualifications. The teaching of methodological, social and self-competence takes place primarily through case studies and seminars.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact the department's Management Studies and Teaching or the Examinations Office.

Location & approach

The campus of TU Dort­mund University is located close to interstate junction Dort­mund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dort­mund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is "Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen" (closer to Campus Süd), and from B 1 / A 40 "Dort­mund-Dorstfeld" (closer to Campus Nord). Signs for the uni­ver­si­ty are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dort­mund.

To get from Campus Nord to Campus Süd by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at Campus Nord and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.


TU Dort­mund University has its own train station ("Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät"). From there, suburban trains (S-Bahn) leave for Dort­mund main station ("Dort­mund Hauptbahnhof") and Düsseldorf main station via the "Düsseldorf Airport Train Station" (take S-Bahn number 1, which leaves every 20 or 30 minutes). The uni­ver­si­ty is easily reached from Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duisburg.

You can also take the bus or subway train from Dort­mund city to the uni­ver­si­ty: From Dort­mund main station, you can take any train bound for the Station "Stadtgarten", usually lines U41, U45, U 47 and U49. At "Stadtgarten" you switch trains and get on line U42 towards "Hombruch". Look out for the Station "An der Palmweide". From the bus stop just across the road, busses bound for TU Dort­mund University leave every ten minutes (445, 447 and 462). Another option is to take the subway routes U41, U45, U47 and U49 from Dort­mund main station to the stop "Dort­mund Kampstraße". From there, take U43 or U44 to the stop "Dort­mund Wittener Straße". Switch to bus line 447 and get off at "Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S".

The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund University. There are two stations on Campus Nord. One ("Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S") is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the "Technologiepark" and (via Campus Süd) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at Campus Nord and offers a direct connection to Campus Süd every five minutes.


The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dortmund Airport (DTM) to Dortmund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dortmund Central Station, you can continue to the university campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of international flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the university station.


The departments of TU Dortmund University are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the university are located in the adjacent "Technologiepark".
