Master in Management & Technology (MMT)
The Master in Management and Technology (MMT) is a master’s program at the TUM School of Management replacing the two former master’s programs TUM-BWL and TUM WITEC. The program combines management with technological studies resulting in a special skill-set of the students requested by more and more employees.
The duration of the program is two years (4 semesters) and requires a full-time study commitment (30 ECTS credits per semester). The program is held in both German and English, but it can be studied up to 100% in English. Yet, in this case, you can only choose between Computer Engineering and Industrial Engineering as your technical specialization, as these are the only ones which can be studied completely in English. In general, the program consists of four spaces, in which all modules are non-compulsory:
- Specialization in Management (30 ECTS),
- Specialization in Technology (30 ECTS),
- Electives (24 ECTS),
- Advanced International Experience (6 ECTS)
- Master’s thesis (30 ECTS).
Especially the electives enable students to go abroad more easily without losing a semester.
Specialization in Management
To fulfill the requirements, 30 ECTS should be absolved in one of the following specialization:
Additionally, at least one Advanced Seminar (6 ECTS) has to be attended by the student.
Specialization in Technology
Depending on the technological specialization during the bachelor’s program, we distinguish between Minor and Major studies. They differ in their nature and requested effort.
If a sufficient number of modules were attended during the bachelor’s program, the student can attend advanced modules in the technological specialization, finishing it with a so-called Major.
If the number of attended modules is insufficient, or in the case of changing the specialization compared to the bachelor’s studies, the student can only attend so-called Minor courses. In electrical engineering and chemistry, compulsory modules exist.
Students can choose to do these 30 ECTS in any module offered by the TUM School of Management, and from the electives of the technical specializations, when they fulfill the requirements. The electives can be used to transfer credit points from your studies abroad.
Suggesting New Modules
The module catalogue for the specialization in management as well as technology is not static. If there are modules that seem to fit into the existing curriculum or extend the topic of specializations, students can make suggestions to include the new modules in one or more specializations. To make this as easy as possible: If you have suggestions for new subjects and modules you can submit them to the faculty using this form.
To qualify for the Master in Management and Technology, applicants must hold a Bachelor´s degree – requiring at least 6 semesters of study of at least 180 ECTS – in TUM-BWL, Management, Business Administration, Economics, or an equivalent subject. Additionally, a proof of proficiency in English is needed. The TUM School of Management accepts next to TOEFL, IELTS and the Cambridge Certificate, also the proof of an English-language examination modules of at least 12 ECTS credits in the first-degree program. Finally, the applicant has to successfully complete the assessment procedure.
