TU Sofia - Faculty of German Engineering and Business Administration Education (FDIBA)
The Faculty of German Engineering and Business Administration Education (FDIBA) at the TU Sofia was established in 1990 on the basis of an agreement between the governments of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Republic of Bulgaria.
Since then the TU Braunschweig and the FDIBA have been cooperating in the postgraduate study programme "Industrial Management".
The postgraduate study programme takes 3 semesters. Admission requirement for the programme is the completion of a first degree in engineering or natural sciences. The study programme provides students with the basic knowledge of business administration in a compact form as well as important management contents. The programme is ideal for those who wish to acquire business management know-how in addition to their mostly technical expert knowledge.
Students at the FDIBA are trained in Sofia according to the curriculum of the TU Braunschweig. The training is conducted in German. The courses are taught by Bulgarian and German lecturers. The graduates receive not only a degree from the TU Sofia but also a degree from the partner university TU Braunschweig.
The following link is for interested Industrial Management students of the TU Sofia. You will find important information about the application procedure for the Double-Degree "Industrial Management/Technology-oriented Management" and the stay at the TU Braunschweig:
The career prospects of the graduates are particularly good not only because of their German language skills, but also in view of the basic knowledge of business administration and the teaching of interdisciplinary knowledge and skills.
St. Petersburg State University of Economics (UNECON) (Cooperation suspended)
An "Agreement on Strategic Cooperation" was concluded with the St. Petersburg University of Economics (UNECON) for joint long-term cooperation in teaching and research. Within this framework, an agreement was concluded on the new dual degree program "Master of International Business Administration (MiBA) and Technology-oriented Management (ToM)", which enables an exchange of students and lecturers between the two universities.
Master of Business Administration (MBA) / University of Nebraska at Omaha
Students of the master's degree programmes in Business Information Systems, Financial and Business Mathematics, Industrial Engineering and Management, and Technology-orientated Management at the TU Braunschweig (TUBS) have the opportunity to obtain a "Master of Business Administration" (MBA) from the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO). The degree is awarded - based on a "Dual Degree" - in addition to the Master's degree of the TU Braunschweig. The MBA can be acquired during a 12-month stay at the UNO. The College of Business Administration (CBA) of the UNO is responsible for the MBA. Since 1965, the study programmes offered by the CBA have been (re)accredited by the renowned AACSB International Standard, most recently in April 2011. In order to acquire the MBA, the relevant services must be completed at the CBA. TUBS students can perform or have a part of these achievements credited during the Master's programme in Braunschweig.
The MIS is a business informatics program of study with a focus on computer science. Nevertheless, due to the mutual crediting of study achievements in this integrated program, both degrees can be achieved in only 4 semesters.
The course of studies is planned to spend two semesters at the TU Braunschweig (Phase A), followed by a further year at the College of Information Science & Technology at the UNO (Phase B).
In phase (A) it is recommended to attend the following modules at the TU Braunschweig:
Business Informatics Advanced Decision Support or Information Management
Scientific Work - Seminar
Computer Networks II or Relational Database Systems II
Industrial software development management
Methods of business informatics (mathematics or empiricism)
Both majors economics
The credits earned in Business Information Systems can be used in phase (B) together with preliminary work from the bachelor's program and shorten the MBA program in Omaha to only two semesters. The MBA credits earned in the USA are transferred back to the TU Braunschweig so that the program can be completed.
At the University of Nebraska at Omaha it is recommended to attend the following modules:
Management the IS Function -> Strategic Information Management
Electronic Commerce or Decision Support Systems and Advanced System Analysis and Design -> Business Informatics specialization
Managing the Distributed Computing Environment -> Applied Distributed Systems
Research in MIS and Thesis -> Master thesis
Database Management or Data Communications
The outlined model is open to all Master students of Business Information Systems at TU Braunschweig. Please note the language requirements of the University of Nebraska, Omaha.
Within the framework of the exchange program or double degrees with the University of Rhode Island (USA), master students of TU Braunschweig have the opportunity to acquire an US-American degree as Master of Science (M.S.) or Master of Business Administration (MBA) in addition to the German master. This Master's program takes three US semesters/terms (12 months in total).
The program is organizationally supervised by the Institute of Energy and Systems Process Engineering under the direction of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulrike Krewer.
