MBA | Automotive Industry

Lead the Automotive Industry into the future!

Technological developments are reshaping the automotive industry. Connected cars, autonomous driving and e-mobility are just some of the current trends in the automotive and supplier industry. Changing customer behavior of the so-called Generation XYZ, new players in the market such as Tesla and Google, and new business models are leading to disruptive changes in the industry.

The automotive industry needs a new generation of managers to master these challenges. Leaders who are able to deal with technological and social changes, leaders who can help their organizations remain competitive in the marketplace, and leaders who have the skills to successfully run their businesses in an uncertain and complex environment. This MBA program prepares executives and high potentials for the demands of the global economy and focuses on the areas of production, logistics and Industry 4.0 in the automotive industry. A particular added value are the excursions to companies in the renowned automotive industry or its suppliers, such as in the Stuttgart region. In addition, participants regularly get in touch with opinion leaders from the automotive and supplier industries at expert discussions and business talks.

This gives you exactly the insights you need to be successful in Europe’s leading industry in the future.
