Module 1 focuses on the professional management of the key areas of university work – research and teaching – taking into account personnel development and quality assurance.Module 2 focuses on the strategic management and continued development of a higher education institution, taking into account quality development, governance, controlling, and profile formation. The degree programme corresponds to a total of 63 ECTS credit points, one third of which are acquired in face-to-face seminars. The seminars take place once a month in blocks of two to three days.
