First Franco-German double degree in management and technology

7 April 2011

The Technische Universität München (TUM) School of Management and HEC Paris have just announced a new joint double degree. The agreement was signed today at the TUM campus by Professor Wolfgang A. Herrmann, President of TUM and Professor Bernard Ramanantsoa, Dean of HEC Paris.

The new double degree master’s program aims to train future managers in international technology-driven industries.

It follows last year’s agreement between Valérie Pécresse, French Minister of Higher Education and Research, and Dr. Wolfgang Heubisch, Bavarian Minister of Sciences, Research and the Arts, to reinforce the links between France and Bavaria in the field of higher education and research.

From September 2011 onwards, students participating in the new two-year master’s program will be prepared for complex leadership challenges through training in technology skill areas such as research, development, production processes as well as in management skill areas such as marketing, communication, and finance. During the program, the students will have the opportunity to undertake one year of internship experience within a company or institution in France, Germany, or a third country.

After successfully completing the program, students will receive both the French Master of Science in Management - Grande École from HEC Paris and the German Master of Science in Management and Technology (WITEC) from TUM.
