The structure of all 6 programs is similar. 10 modules are divided into 5 engineering and 5 management modules. The business administration and management modules common for all programs and provide specific target qualifications, such as Innovation & Projects, Finance & Value, Marketing & Data, Strategy & People or Human Resource Management, and Decisions & Risk or Law & Contracts. In the engineering specification of each program, the HECTOR School offers outstanding courses e.g. with state of the art knowledge in Production Technology, Supply Chain Management or Systems Engineering. The courses cover research orientated engineering methodology as well as application orientated know-how which is an indispensable asset for future managers to successfully run modern production facilities.
The HECTOR School programs for young professionals yield a further competitive advantage, which allows finding specific solutions and space for corporate personnel development. Successful managers need a profound understanding of both technological intricacies and their implementation within the added value network. Young professionals trained both as businessmen and as engineers are particularly destined to assume leadership positions in the global economy, due to their demanding and superior education and resulting know-how. Therefore the Executive Master Programs of the HECTOR School which combine proficient training in management and engineering ideally prepare high-potential professionals for strategic top-management positions in industry.
Our Programs are therefore more than typical MBA programs. The primary goal is to enable young professionals to take a holistic approach when managing highly interdependent processes. Leadership for engineers in today’s fast-changing and complex environment does imply technological and organizational responsibilities as well as requires economical accountability and Human Resource Management know-how. Therefore all programs base on 5 Management Modules where the students are provided on the one hand with basic knowledge in Finance, Accounting, Marketing and Law so they can consider commercial consequences of business decisions.
The engineering emphasis of each program is laid in 5 additional Modules adapted to each specialization:
Master in Energy Engineering and Management (part-time):

The MSc in Energy Engineering & Management-graduates are able to understand innovation processes and can effectively and successfully apply their knowledge either in existing companies or in the founding of "start-ups". Therefore, professional, methodical, process and management knowledge is essential, as interceded in the modules of Energy Engineering & Management. Additionally, internationalization and mobility are key factors integrated into the Master Program, preparing graduates for the internationally operating energy sector.
Master in Financial Engineering (part-time):
Graduates of the MSc in Financial Engineering are able to take over executive functions in financial management. They are qualified to consider challenges of finance from an engineer’s view and to develop and optimize innovative solutions on the basis of fundamental economic laws by means of mathematics and statistics.
MSc in Financial Engineering-graduates have a distinct understanding of complex financial products. Their analytical skills of projects and financial products and their leading visions enable them to deal with the challenges of a more and more globally acting financial sector.
MSc in Financial Engineering-participants can apply and enhance acknowledged financing theories, engineering methods and management tools as well as mathematical and computer-aided techniques and simultaneously identify the limitations of economic and financial-mathematical models. Therefore, MSc in Financial Engineering-graduates are well prepared for their careers, in companies such as credit institutes, investment companies, insurances, consulting firms and finance departments of large national and international industrial companies.
Master in Mobility Systems Engineering and Management (part-time):
Graduates of the MSc in Mobility Systems Engineering and Managment (MSEM) receive a unique interdisciplinary education in systems engineering and state-of-the-art technologies in autonomous driver assistance systems or e-mobility.
With its long tradition in electrical, information and communication programs, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) provides an ideal environment. Building on the long-established reputation for excellence in business engineering, our master program combines an in-depth knowledge and understanding of fundamental concepts in systems engineering, advanced driver assistance systems, e-mobility, and management with the latest developments in Mobility Systems Engineering.
Graduates will be able to process and use different methods and tools of Systems Engineering. They will know Systems Design as well as Integration & Validation. The Mobility Systems master program is then split into two specializations that participants can choose from, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) or e-Mobility.
Those who graduate with the specialization of ADAS will understand the functions of ADAS along with the components & technologies of ADAS.
The graduates with the specialization of e-Mobility will understand the political & technical framework of e-Mobility as well as the components & technologies.
Master in Management of Product Development (part-time):
Participants of the MSc in Management of Product Development (MPD) are able to analyze, design, operate and implement the product development process in their companies in an optimized way by means of acquired research- and application-oriented methods and processes.
