Master’s Program “Business Administration”

In the Master’s Program “Business Administration” three profiles are offered at Osnabrück University.

The profile “Accounting” focuses on matters of external and internal corporate accounting (financial reporting, controlling) as well as on business taxation. Students gain a highly relevant education that excellently prepares for a career entry and qualifies for managerial positions. For instance, potential employers are large companies with corresponding departments, auditing companies or tax consulting companies.

The profile “Information Systems” focuses on information management in companies. This particularly includes the design and use of information systems for and by decision makers, the mapping of business processes and the configuration of application systems. The profile “Information Systems” provides an education which offers a wide range of career possibilities. In particular, students suceed at the interfaces of IT and central commercial functions.

Another way to study the Master’s program “Business Administration” is to choose a generalist profile. Students gain broad education in the fields of management, accounting, taxation, finance, marketing and information management. This generalist orientation qualifies students to work in all kinds of business areas, management positions and further business-specialized departments.
