General information

 

The master in Business Mathematics is a master programm with a focus similar to the Bachelor Business Mathematics. In the master programm you are more flexible then in the bachelor programm. The standard period of studies is 4 semesters, you will have to acquire at least 120 credits during that period. Here you can find information regarding admission (website in English, document availabe only in German).

 

Course of studies

 

Because of the many possible choices of courses, there is no standard study plan for the Master Business Mathematics. Instead, there are regulations on how many ECTS you have to acquire in the different categories.

You will have to get 120 – 127 ECTS in the fields:

  • Math: min. 16 ECTS, min. 2 groups of 8 ECTS each (from the categories A, B and C, specified in module catalogue)
  • Focus: min. 14 ECTS
  • Business administration and Economics: 31 – 40 ECTS, max. 24 ECTS from business administration
  • Thesis: 30 ECTS

Each course in mathematics belongs to one of the groups A, B or C. Math A is usually analysis, Math B is algebra and Math C (the biggest group) is applied math. You can not attend all courses from one category.

There is no clear difference between the general math courses and your focus. You will discuss this in an advisory talk with a professor during the first semesters.

In addition to that you will have to pass 2 – 3 seminars. One of them is usually at the chair of the professor supervising your thesis.

You can also attend up to 2 bachelor level courses.
