Excellent career opportunities: Experiences of graduates

Graduates of the Master programme Business Management can start their professional careers, due to the generalist orientation of the programme, in various business functions. Following, you find some statements and experiences from former students. How they have fared after graduation and what they see as the strengths of the Master programme Business Management at Heilbronn University.

Regina Missel; Graduated in 2012; Audi AG; Controlling:

„In retrospect, there would have been no better decision for me than the Master programme Business Management at Heilbronn University. Why? This programme is designed as a generalist programme with highly relevant practical projects (to individualise your personal curriculum). Furthermore, a body of highly competent academics with broad professional backgrounds is appointed for this Master programme. As a result of the small number of students approved to this Master programme the lectures are designed interactive with a lot of discussions.

The crucial point for me was the combination of the already mentioned aspects in addition to the possibility to spend one semester abroad at one of the many worldwide partner universities and to finish my studies within the regular time of three semesters. I have, for example, graduated with a double degree from a London University.

In short, I highly recommend the Master programme Business Management – It was an unforgettable experience."


Dirk Huber; Graduated in 2012; Robert Bosch GmbH; Controlling:

„Regarding the Master programme Business Management I liked most the modular structure and that the lectures were held block-wise. Due to this flexibility, I was able to gain practical experiences as a working student while enjoying an excellent theoretical training at Heilbronn University. In addition, several practical projects during the studies prepared me for my future career. At this point I would like to emphasize the professional and social competences of the staff as well as the professors.”


Romana Kohlhund; Graduated in 2012; EOS GmbH (world market leader: laser sintering); International Controlling:

“I was very satisfied with my choice for the Master programme Business Management at Heilbronn University because the content was very broad and diversified as well as cross-functional. I got a comprehensive overview of all important business topics and interdependencies, which are necessary to work on responsible tasks in different departments of a company. In addition, I appreciated the opportunity to integrate a semester abroad and to graduate with a double degree.”


Thomas Felsing; Graduated in 2012; Lidl Dienstleistung GmbH & Co. KG; Trainee Purchasing:

"The Master programme Business Management is a solid, business management programme that keeps all doors open regarding future professional careers. In particular, the practical orientation and the various projects are remarkable. I also liked that I could spend a semester abroad in Lithuania - not many universities have a wide network of partner universities as the Heilbronn University. Moreover, I would like to mention the great support during the study by the staff of the programme.”


Tim Fritzenschaft; Graduated in 2012; Academic staff and doctoral student: Bachelor and Master programme Business Management, Heilbronn University:

"The main reason for choosing the Master programme Business Management at Heilbronn University had been the high practical orientation and the possibility to integrate one semester abroad (including a double degree). Moreover, I got the chance after completion of the Master programme to continue with a doctoral programme (PhD) at the Center for Business and Management (zfbu) which is situated at Heilbronn University. Since February 2012, I am working at the University and on my dissertation.”
