Master's degree

Management – Education – Diversity (M.A.)

Students of the Master's degree program are taught how to strengthen diversity within their fields of work, to take on qualified management positions in the health and social services sector, to be able to design educational work on a more professional level or to be able to deal with the topic of flight and migration. The transdisciplinary and quite focussed study program provides a degree course with a direct reference to the fields of activity involved therein. Graduates from different disciplines study together and also benefit from each other.

Study program

As a result of the increasing complexity of the professional world and everyday working life, the demands on the professionalism of the individual continue to increase. Professional fields in education, health and social services as well as in management are particularly challenged to develop the potential of diversity and to combine this with individual resources. For this reason, the Master's program imparts comprehensive transdisciplinary knowledge and a wide range of competences regarding the aforementioned fields.

The program was developed between 2011 and 2012 by and with professors from all EHB degree programs and was launched in the summer semester of 2013.

Advantages, perspectives, focal points

  • Diversity as a cross-cutting competence that is taught and learned
  • A broadening and deepening knowledge as well as competences in a transdisciplinary dimension
  • Qualification for tasks in management, in areas of communal/private/church community and educational work or in health/social services

General information on the degree program
