Careers

Your Master in Management career outlook

Whether you go on to work for a medium-sized company or a multinational group abroad – the online or on-campus Master in Management degree from IU International University of Applied Sciences serves as the ideal preparation for your future role as a manager in your chosen field.

Change Manager

Change management involves all projects, activities, measures and duties that affect wide-reaching changes in a business. For the most part, it involves pursuing new strategies, change developed strategies, updating technical and organisational systems, improving processes and procedures or shaping and changing the habits of organisation employees. As a change manager, you will accompany and guide your company through these processes.

Project Manager

As a project manager, you take the lead for a company project. You lead, organise, budget and keep the view of the bigger picture. You are responsible for the planning, implementation, acceptance, and post-processing of projects. This can involve product launches, website relaunches, business restructuring, and similar projects. As part of these projects, your role is primarily to coordinate and delegate the corresponding roles and be available as the project contact partner.

Consultant

As a consultant, you advise various businesses. These consultations could be on general management of the business or how to implement change precisely. You can easily adapt your basic consultation concept to the individual needs and assignments of your client and ensure all parties reach their targets fairly and on time.
