The Master’s degree program 'Management in Polymer Technologies (MPT)' combines key subject areas in polymer engineering and business administration. The curriculum is globally unique, expanding on undergraduate studies in Polymer Engineering at the JKU. Applicants who hold an undergraduate degree in Technical Chemistry, Biological Chemistry, Technical Physics, or Mechatronics need to complete mandatory bridging subjects during the MPT program. Graduates of other undergraduate degree programs admitted to the program may be required to complete additional coursework of up to 40 ECTS credits during the program. The program is flexible, allowing students to specialize in polymer technologies and business administration, including Sustainable Development. Graduates can pursue professions ranging from project management to marketing and to executive management positions.
