Career perspectives

The subject Organization offers a generalist management education at the highest level. For some graduates - especially those who take on tasks as management assistants or in the field of "management consulting" - knowledge about organizational structures and processes as well as about organizational behavior is already of great importance at the beginning of their career. For most graduates, this knowledge only becomes central in the course of their career, when they gradually assume responsibility for ever larger organizational units or entire organizations. The subject of organization unfolds optimal professional benefits in combination with quantitative business knowledge, sales skills or a technical background. The latter help to quickly gain a foothold in professional life. The former, knowledge of the larger context as well as the causes and effects of organization and organizational development, promotes longer-term professional success. The specialization area "Organization, Innovation and Entrepreneurship" combines basic knowledge of organizational theory with a special focus on organizational structures and processes that promote creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship both inside and outside the company. This knowledge is just as important for prospective founders as for intrapreneurs, project or change managers or dedicated innovation managers. The specialization area "Sustainability Management" qualifies students in particular for a career in the CSR departments of companies, but is also important for employees in all functional areas (e.g. supply chain management, purchasing, accounting and controlling) who want to meet the increasingly strong expectations for sustainable corporate practices. By combining the two subjects as a major/minor, graduates are optimally prepared to develop and successfully establish sustainable organizational models and responsible innovations.
