The Master of Science in Business Engineering is a business administration programme with a focus on (data-driven) management science, business processes and technology. These three disciplines are offered throughout the two-year Master’s curriculum in the form of theoretical lectures, practical case studies and business games, and by means of guest speakers and company projects. The Master's programme conveys these disciplines both in a theoretical and a practice-oriented way
While the Bachelor of Science in Business Engineering mainly focuses on providing a (quantitative) foundation, the Master’s programme studies different aspects of the subdisciplines mentioned above in a more applied manner. The specific content of the study that links business analytics and business processes with technology helps to translate processes into business models, and organisational structures into information systems. By means of data analysis techniques, conceptual or mathematical modelling techniques and decision-making techniques, we study the business operations within a single company and between companies in a supply chain thoroughly. Such business operations include the processes and the logistical flow of products, services and/or information. These techniques support the efficient organisation of resources in companies for them to work towards their common goals and objectives.
By way of specialisation, studends choose one of three main subjects: Data Analytics, - Finance, or - Operations Management.
The Operations Management main subject is a management discipline with a focus on overseeing, designing, controlling service or production processes and redesigning business operations. It includes the responsibility of ensuring that business operations use their reources efficiently, and meet their customer needs effectively. It also covers process management from the conversionof various types of input (raw materials, labor and energy) into various types of output (goods and/or services). Important business concepts concerning Project Management, Total Quality Management, Production and Supply Chain Management will be highlighted from various angles and perspectives.
