General Management (M.Sc.)

Study information

The master's program in General Management teaches current business and digital content and, as a consecutive program, is aimed at bachelor's degree graduates in business administration. The content is set in the context of the new megatrends, as these are creating a completely new reality in business, government and civil society. As a result, students will be able to understand the complexity required in their strategic and operational decisions. In this context, the challenges affect all areas of business, which is why the three central themes of innovation (e.g. Circular Economy business models, Social Innovation or Product Innovation), digitalization (Big Data, Digital Business Models or Leading in the Digital Age, among others) and sustainability (e.g. Ethics, Sustainability and CSR or Green Finance and Controlling) are given priority and are incorporated into every module. The program thus prepares students for qualitatively demanding management activities that require scientifically sound knowledge and methods.

Our lecturers have decades of practical experience. They will teach you in the following business management areas

  • Marketing & E-Commerce
  • Sustainable corporate management
  • Financial management
  • Corporate Governance

 Specialize individually within the framework of the extensive range of electives. This includes subjects such as

  • Sustainability Management
  • Strategy & Leadership
  • Change Management
  • Personal development
  • Coaching
  • Self-leadership

The program also includes forward-looking content such as

  • Digital innovation strategies
  • Digital Business Development
  • Sustainability

You will also acquire the latest expertise in three key areas of transformative business studies:


  • Innovation management and competence

It takes 5 months to complete the master's thesis.

Your Master's degree program is blended learning with classroom sessions and self-study phases. The NORDAKADEMIE  provides you with all learning materials online and offline and also supervises you personally.

Four to six weeks before your first lecture, you will receive access to the first study materials. At the beginning of your studies, you will also receive your student ID card.

Consistent study groups enable you to have an intensive exchange and excellent cooperation. In the Master's project, you will also work together in interdisciplinary teams. All modules follow one another in time with subsequent examinations. This means that you only have to prepare for one exam at a time.

If, due to your personal or professional situation, it is not possible for you to complete your studies in the standard period of study, you can extend your study period by eight months free of charge.

Our recommendation: When comparing the tuition fees of private universities, you should always look out for "hidden" costs, e.g. for enrollment, exams or study time extensions. If providers do not disclose these fees or only inform you about them after you have been entered in a list of prospective students, you will often be charged above-average fees.

A Master's degree in General Management at NORDAKADEMIE is your springboard to a career in senior management. You would like to start your own business? The part-time degree program is also well suited for this.

The consecutive Business Administration program provides you with comprehensive knowledge for optimizing the long-term success of companies and creates a strong basis for sound, sustainable decisions.
