Careers

Your Business Administration career outlook

Excellent job prospects await you wherever there’s a need for interdisciplinary expertise in business and technology. Once you’ve completed your online MBA - Engineering Management degree, you’ll be qualified to work as...

Project Manager

As a project manager with a focus on technology, you are responsible for the development of new components, for example. Among other things, you take care of the introduction of new production lines or innovative test tracks for user vehicles at a truck manufacturer, for example. You take on tasks in the areas of planning, coordination, leadership, and marketing. With the help of project management tools, you always keep an eye on performance, quality, deadlines, and costs in cooperation with your team. 

Quality Manager

As a quality manager in the technical area, you ensure that product, material, and service quality and the associated processes are constantly improved. You work to meet all customer requirements and to make the manufacturing processes efficient. To do this, you analyse potential weak points, develop solutions, and put them into practice. Within the scope of your tasks, you work closely with various specialist departments.

Engineering Project Manager

Engineering project managers supervise demanding large-scale projects, evaluate customer inquiries, and design solutions. As part of their job, they deal with suppliers, specialist departments, and authorities involved in the realisation of their projects. Their business management know-how enables them to assess risks and calculate costs. Engineering project managers check technical offers and support their team with advice in case of problems or challenges, right until the successful commission of each project. 

Student reviews

This is what our students say

  • I wanted a career change but still be able to apply the knowledge I've gained to my work.

    Anne-Kathrin Gansebohm

    Online student

  • I find data science is an interesting area of science where lots of things have not yet been discovered and development moves fast. That's also why I chose to join the M.Sc. Artificial Intelligence programme which I am currently studying at IU. The programme, tutors, and professors at IU are really accessible. I'm convinced this programme will keep my knowledge current or even create a new trajectory for my career.

    Riku Luostari

    Graduate, New Zealand

  • I chose to pursue an MBA due to its practical relevance, especially the case studies, which were particularly exciting for me. Thanks to IU’s flexibility, I was able to combine my studies with my job, where I was often able to apply what I was learning.
