In this programme we train professionals who are able to respond to the social and economic challenges of the future and to make the social acceptance of the continuously accelerating technological development more problem-free. All that is carried out with interdisciplinary approach, as the programme combines the theoretical and practical knowledge of economic sciences, psychology, sociology and methodological skills. In the practice-oriented programme, we put great emphasis on competence development, and prepare our students for science-based problem management, adaptation to change and life-long learning. Our main objective is to train experts who are able to reflect on not only the social, environmental and individual impacts of science and technology, but are suitable for sustainable and ethic leading positions, too.
