In a dynamic, global economy, it is those enterprises that have an efficient and customer-oriented approach to production that are successful. This means they rely on executives, who develop the appropriate strategies, who plan and control production, optimize processes and carry out projects successfully with their team. The Master’s degree programme Operations Management (OMT) offers you a forward-looking management education for this purpose. You acquire both leadership skills and expertise in the fields of production and ERP.
Intensive contact with industry and the practical application of acquired knowledge are of fundamental importance for Operations Management. Well-known companies such as BMW, Bosch, BRP-Rotax, Engel, FACC, Greiner, HALI, Internorm, Josko, KTM, Lenzing, MAN, Magna, Pöttinger, Rosenbauer, Umdasch, voestalpine or ZF collaborate regularly with OMT students in the context of enterprise projects and diploma theses. Numerous OMT graduates are already working in these companies. Committed students can actively cooperate in the extensive research projects on the degree programme. This opportunity is also open to OMT graduates, who want to write a doctoral thesis.
The most current topics geared to the demands of the economy are offered in the compulsory elective subjects which allow individual consolidation in the 2nd and 3rd semester – e.g.:

With their final degree – Master of Science in Engineering (MSc) – graduates are qualified to pursue a related doctoral degree at a domestic or foreign university. Students also benefit from their colleagues’ differing educational backgrounds. The OMT students are graduates from economic and engineering degree programmes at universities and universities of applied sciences such as PMT and IPM, pure engineering programmes like Mechatronics and Automatisation Technology as well as programmes with a purely economic focus such as Business Economics and ILM.
As an OMT graduate you develop customer and experience-oriented leadership, planning and control mechanisms in a company. You know how to apply ERP systems in an optimum way so that enterprise resources are used economically.
You manage both the enterprise’s internal value chain and cooperation with customers
and suppliers. As an executive, you develop goals and guidelines with your team, take measures to reach them and evaluate the results. You take responsibility for costs, results and leadership.
