To enroll in a bachelor degree in Technology Management you need a university entrance qualification, such as a vocational baccalaureate, high school diploma or a completed vocational training programme plus 3 years of work experience. If you do not meet these requirements, our Prep4University study programme or our study counseling service can help you. You can apply even if you don't have the certificate yet. If the study language is English, good English skills are also relevant. For the English proficiency certificate, a certificate that is not more than two years old is required. Alternatively, you can participate in the CBS's free online English test
The admission requirement for enrollment in a master's degree programme at the CBS is a first academic degree (bachelor's, diploma, master's) from a recognized German or international university, technical university or vocational academy with a grade of "good" or higher. If this grade point average was not achieved in the first degree programme, a separate admission process must be completed. The first degree programme should have been completed in a business economics field and have a total volume of at least 180 ECTS points.
Candidates for a Technology Management degree should be interested in innovation: do you like to experiment with new technology? Are you excited about technical novelties? That's already a very good starting point for studying technology and innovation management. Do you also have a feel for which of these technologies will be successful - and which will be a flop in the foreseeable future? That's even better. Do you wonder whether new technologies are profitable for the provider and why they decided to invest a lot of money in this type of innovation? That's optimal.
Basically, you need a good mix of curiosity, analytical skills, numerical understanding, and gut feeling. In technology management, you are always venturing into uncharted territory. Therefore you cannot just rely on clear, data-based decision-making.
The programmes at the CBS are NC-free, as we select our students based on our own criteria. This is done as part of a consultation and application process, including an interview. The reason for this is that we want you to choose the perfect degree programme for you.
