Build and shape space on and off Earth
As we enter a space renaissance, planned space missions are on the rise and space-based technologies are becoming integral to our daily lives on Earth, such as global positioning systems, financial transactions, and weather forecasts.
Living and working in space, as well as research stations on the moon and Mars, are goals that are opening up numerous opportunities on our planet. The experiences gained from these extreme extraterrestrial conditions can serve as case studies for addressing pressing terrestrial challenges.
Addressing Terrestrial Challenges
Our world is changing, and we see it every day through extreme weather, climate conditions, environmental destruction, limited resources, sustainable building, and land use optimization.
Our Executive MBA program bridges the gap between economics, engineering, architecture, and other technical and social sciences, connecting space and Earth. This unique interdisciplinary MBA imparts knowledge and know-how about new technologies and strategies for planning, building, and living in space.
Synergizing Earth-Related Issues
Simultaneously, reflecting on and synergizing current Earth-related issues, such as resource utilization, technology, and climate, are essential components of our discussions with internationally recognized experts and leaders.
This course prepares executives, high potentials, and space market enthusiasts for future requirements in an international and interdisciplinary field of work, both in space and on Earth. Our Academy for Continuing Education combines technology with management and leadership, training you to excel in a leading position.
