Master-Studiengang Management, Leadership, Innovation (Vertiefungsmodul)


After graduation, students of MLI are enabled to join both academic institutions and innovation driven businesses (startups, SME’s, corporates). In this final MLI module, students get prepared for graduation and career start. Students learn how to contribute to an ongoing debate and get skilled on how to write articles and become proficient in publishing them in scientific journals. At the same time, students gain profound skills for handling their forthcoming master thesis. On the other hand, students have to deal with reality based questions of cooperating businesses and present solutions to them. These reality based approaches serve as an additional experience, which most companies require.

Moreover, module 5 provides guidance for MLI students which career path to take after gradua-tion. The distinction between theory and practice reveals student’s individual preferences and strengths. By reflecting their own profile and development, students will eventually improve their self-awareness and thus have a more profound knowledge about themselves regarding the question whether they are going to attend a rather scientific or practical career path.
