One program - four options

Choose whatever is right for you!

Discover our M.Sc. in Management & Engineering in Technology, Innovation, Marketing & Entrepreneurship (MME TIME) – an interdisciplinary program designed at the intersection of management and technology. The program offers you a thorough management education supplemented by a broad set of elective courses on the latest developments in state-of-the-art technologies. Thanks to this wide selection you may customize the curriculum to your individual profile.

But there is more to it than just a large number of electives. Digitalization changed the necessity of time and space for learning and we designed our program with that idea in mind. Therefore it allows very high flexibility regarding the learning track and study mode. It provides you with the opportunity to tailor the program and its duration to your needs and interests.

We created a short video to give you an idea of your possibilities:

Two study modes

First of all, we offer two study modes. All courses, requirements and standards are the same in both study modes. You can switch your study mode once during your studies in case your personal situation changes.

Full-Time

  • three semesters
  • 30 CP (six courses) per semester
  • master thesis in last semester

Part-Time

  • six semesters
  • 15 CP (three courses) per semester
  • master thesis in last semester

Two learning tracks

We also offer two different learning tracks. You can always decide to attend the in-class sessions on campus or to study from distance for each of your modules. You just have to make your decision before each module starts.

On Campus

  • blended learning approach
  • courses mainly delivered on campus
  • video lectures are complemented by in class sessions with professors and peers
  • strong focus on interaction with peers and professors in the classroom and through group projects
  • experience life as a student in Aachen, Germany

Distance-Learning

  • blended learning approach
  • courses delivered online (does apply to all mandatory modules and many electives)
  • video lectures are complemented by personal sessions facilitated by digital media (e.g. online discussions, forums, screencasts etc.)
  • allows for full flexibility to focus on other occupations (e.g. job, maternity leave), courses are structured in weekly content, you are free to learn whenever you want and have time during the week

Four possible combinations - discover your options

All in all there are four options how to study our program. But which is the right study mode and learning track for you? Don’t worry, our study course coordinators will work with you to define the right learning path for you. Check out our suggestions for possible combinations below.

Full-time On Campus

You study directly at our Campus here in Aachen and concentrate full-time on your studies. The standard period of studies is three semesters.

This is the right combination for you if you want to primarily concentrate on your studies and enjoy the experience of being a student in Aachen, Germany.

Full-Time Distance-Learning

You concentrate full-time on your studies from anywhere in the world and come to Aachen once per semester. The standard period of studies is three semesters.

This is the right combination for you if you want to stay in your home with your friends and family or maybe want to pursue an internship and therefore need the flexibility but still want to concentrate fully on your studies. Please note that you have to come to Aachen once per semester for two to three weeks for some modules or exams.

Part-Time On Campus

You continue your job or with other occupations, but live near RWTH Business School and have the opportunity to drop by. The standard period of studies is six semesters.

This is the right combination for you if you have a full-time responsibility (job, maternity leave, care for relatives etc.). Most students in this mode live and work near Aachen and are able to take one or two days off from work or their other occupations.

You have to provide a validated reason that you are eligible for the part-time program, e.g. a current working contract.

Part-time Distance-Learning

You continue your job and study from anywhere in the world. And once per semester we meet in Aachen. The standard period of studies is six semesters.

This is the right combination for you if you have a full-time responsibility (job, maternity leave, care for relatives etc.) and want to stay in your home with your friends and family or at your preferred location. Please note that you have to come to Aachen once per semester for two to three weeks for some modules or exams.

You have to provide a validated reason that you are eligible for the part-time program, e.g. a current working contract.

Further information

Now you know how to study our program. Please find more information about the curriculum, the learning experience or the academic requirements on our program pages.
