Professional MBA Automotive Industry

Course Description

Those who ignore trends in the automotive industry quickly loose competitive advantage – and in the worst case even a whole business. With the so called industry 4.0, production processes have become digitalised allowing for cross-border manufacturing - just in time and sequence. High attention has also been drawn by visionary developments such as autonomous driving, connected cars or e-mobility. These developments call for a new generation of leaders with the ability of interdisciplinary and interconnected thinking in an uncertain and complex environment
