Who we are looking for

Young Professionals

Das Bild zeigt eine Fachperson, die sich inmitten einer dynamischen digitalen Umgebung befindet, umgeben von Symbolen für Digital Transformation Management, Big Data, Data Science, Machine Learning, Künstliche Intelligenz und das Internet der Dinge, was ihre Bereitschaft zur Anpassung und Erweiterung ihrer Fähigkeiten im Zuge der digitalen Transformation illustriert.

Specialist:

“Of course, I’m very familiar with my functional area. However, for digital transformation and digitalization, our company is increasingly demanding broader digital business & AI skills, especially IT skills relating to digital transformation management, big data, data science, machine learning, deep learning, and the Internet of Things … To secure my job and boost my career, I therefore need to broaden my skillset. However, self-study or evening classes will certainly not be enough, but instead I need a Master study program.”

Das Bild porträtiert einen IT-Manager, der in der Welt der digitalen Geschäftsmodelle navigiert, umgeben von Symbolen, die die Digitalisierung verschiedener Unternehmensbereiche und die Entwicklung neuer digitaler Geschäftsstrategien darstellen. Es zeigt seine Entschlossenheit, Wissenslücken im Digital Business zu schließen, und betont die Bedeutung des MDBA-Studiengangs als Schlüssel zur Vorbereitung auf die Herausforderungen des Digital Transformation Managements.

IT manager:

“I have been working in my employer’s IT department for years. However, my responsibilities are now increasingly extending to other areas of the company, as we are digitizing the entire value chain and corresponding processes. I am also involved in the development of digital and AI business models without having any idea about the business side… If I close this knowledge gap, completely new and very attractive career options will open up for me in the context of digitalization. A part-time MBA is the ideal way to prepare for these challenges.”

Das Bild zeigt einen Quereinsteiger, der sich auf dem Pfad des digitalen Lernens und Wachstums befindet, umgeben von Symbolen für Digitalisierung und Data Science. Es verdeutlicht seine Bemühungen, seine Fähigkeiten im Bereich des Digital Business zu erweitern, und unterstreicht die Bedeutung eines berufsbegleitenden Master-Studiengangs wie des MDBA der FAU, um seine beruflichen Qualifikationen zu festigen und zu erweitern.

Career changer:

“I only acquired a few IT and management skills through my university degree. Nevertheless, I have been working on machine learning, data science, and digitalization topics at my employer for some time now. However, this is usually only done with a healthy half-knowledge, which will soon no longer be enough. It would be best to acquire the necessary digital business skills via a part-time MBA program alongside my job, especially as I could then prove my qualification profile with a corresponding Master’s degree. The MBA at FAU offers a broad repertoire of skills for this.”

Senior Professionals

Das Bild veranschaulicht einen General Manager, der sich den Herausforderungen der Digitalen Transformation stellt, umgeben von verschiedenen digitalen Symbolen, die die Notwendigkeit der Weiterbildung in digitalen Themenbereichen darstellen. Es zeigt seine Entschlossenheit, sich selbst und sein Team weiterzuentwickeln, um den steigenden Anforderungen in einer zunehmend digitalisierten Geschäftswelt gerecht zu werden.

General Manager:

“The pressure from all sides to face up to the opportunities and challenges of artificial intelligence and digital transformation is becoming ever greater in our company. Unfortunately, I am only moderately well versed in many of these current topics. To make myself and my business unit fit, I urgently need to upskill myself and/or some of my employees, who unfortunately – if at all – only have a background in business administration, IT or technology.”

Das Bild stellt einen Unternehmer dar, der vor der Herausforderung steht, sein Unternehmen durch die Wogen der Digitalisierung zu steuern. Es zeigt seine Entschlossenheit, sich und sein Team mit dem notwendigen Wissen in Management und IT auszustatten, um den digitalen Wandel erfolgreich zu gestalten und gleichzeitig ein Start-up im Bereich Digitalisierung und Data Science aufzubauen. Der MDBA der FAU wird als Schlüsselwerkzeug für den Aufbau eines nachhaltigen Digital Business dargestellt.

Entrepreneur:

“Artificial intelligence and digitalization has started to call my company’s business model into question. I therefore need to think about how I can lead it successfully into the digital future. However, like my employees, I lack state-of-the-art knowledge in the field of IT and management … At the same time, I am currently trying to exploit the opportunities of artificial intelligence and digitalization for myself with a start-up. However, I don’t have the expertise to develop my idea into a sustainably successful digital business and market it via digital channels. The MBA at FAU gives me the tools I need.”

Das Bild zeigt einen Berater, der von seinen Kunden um Rat in digitalen Angelegenheiten gebeten wird. Umgeben von Symbolen für IT, BWL, Recht sowie spezialisierten Bereichen wie Data Science und Big Data, verdeutlicht es seinen Bedarf an umfassendem Wissen, um ganzheitliche Lösungen im Kontext der Digitalisierung anbieten zu können.

Consultant:

“My customers increasingly want to know from me how they should best deal with artificial intelligence. However, I can’t really give any well-founded answers, let alone offer holistic solutions. For that, I would need knowledge across the entire spectrum from IT to business administration, and law. In-depth insights into topics such as data science, big data and digital business administration are also necessary.”

Graduates

Das Bild illustriert einen Bachelor-Absolventen, der bereit ist, in die Praxis einzusteigen und sich den Herausforderungen der digitalen Arbeitswelt zu stellen. Dargestellt sind seine Ambitionen, sich in BWL, IT und vielleicht auch Jura zu spezialisieren, um die Anforderungen von Unternehmen im Zeitalter der Digitalisierung zu erfüllen. Der Fokus liegt auf seiner Bereitschaft, sich durch einen berufsbegleitenden Master in Digital Transformation Management und Data Science weiterzubilden.

Bachelor graduates:

“After completing my Bachelor’s degree, I now want to get started in practice. Staying at university for another two years is too long for me, even if I had a Master’s degree in my pocket afterwards. At the moment, however, companies seem to be looking for the jack of all trades: Knowledge of business administration, IT and preferably also law, all geared towards digitalization and artificial intelligence. With knowledge in digital transformation management, machine learning, and data science, I certainly wouldn’t be able to save myself from job offers, but to achieve this, I would only consider a part-time Master degree program.”

Das Bild porträtiert einen Master-Absolventen, der die Bedeutung von interdisziplinärem Wissen in einer zunehmend digitalisierten Welt erkennt. Es zeigt seine Entschlossenheit, kaufmännische und IT-Fähigkeiten zu kombinieren und sich durch einen berufsbegleitenden Master in Digital Business Administration weiterzubilden, um sich optimal auf Karrieremöglichkeiten in Data Science und Digital Transformation Management vorzubereiten.

Master graduates:

“In my Master’s program, I have already acquired in-depth knowledge in a specific area. Due to digitalization, however, allrounders who can demonstrate both commercial and IT qualifications, ideally with an interdisciplinary Master’s degree, seem to be more in demand in practice at the moment. But I don’t want to do another full-time Master’s program. A part-time MBA in Digital Business & AI would ideally prepare me for the world of work.”
