Small classes and personal contact


You are not just a number with us. The quality of our teaching and
excellent educational outcomes are a top priority for us. That’s why
our professors and lecturers teach you in small groups and are there
for you personally to answer your questions. The advantages of studying
in small groups:
•• The impact of education within small groups is much larger than in
anonymous groups in large lecture halls.
•• The professors and lecturers know you personally and can respond specifically to
your questions and suggestions.
•• You don’t just listen passively in seminars, you participate actively in discussions and learn different points of view while
also improving your discussion and rhetoric skills.

Personal challenge? Personal advice!


Whether it‘s before, during or at the end of your studies: Our staff provides individual, professional advice on all your
questions about your studies and career. So, whether you are looking for advice on which degree programme is right for
you, where and how you can spend some time studying abroad, or what opportunities our Career Office offer: Just contact
our student advisory service.

Ideal infrastructure for an optimal learning experience


Students who want to focus diligently on their studies but also enjoy themselves shouldn’t have to spend their time in
crowded lecture halls or dusty libraries. Our locations offer you everything you need for your studies and your well-being:
modern seminar rooms, libraries, IT support, WIFI and, depending on the campus, various dining options. We also offer a
wide selection of associations and sports clubs so you can enjoy your free time as well as your studies together with your
fellow students.

I think it‘s great to study in Bad Honnef, because
I can be at the university in a few minutes and
meet my buddies any time of the day without
travelling long distances. The city may be small,
but there is always something to see: From the Martini market
to the city festival and the Holi Festival – there is something
for everyone. The island Grafenwerth is a great
possibility to enjoy the Rhine as well as the
sun and to drink a beer with the boys in the
beer garden. Bad Honnef has everything
you need, and if there‘s something you
don‘t have, you can quickly get to Bonn
or Cologne.“

on the roof terrace...

HOSPITALITY
MANAGEMENT
The focus of “hospitality” is always on the guest and the associated services. The
„hospitality industry“ as an economic sector includes the classic hotels but also
adjacent industries such as cruise lines, real estate developers or online intermediaries
and service providers such as hospitality consulting or IT service providers. That means
hospitality management covers a very wide field with countless, often cross-industry
opportunities. We prepare you for this challenging environment in the Hospitality
Management programme with extensive knowledge – both from the hospitality industry as
well as from the general management. After graduation you will be in demand worldwide,
for example in the hotel industry, in holiday resorts and clubs, but also at congress and
trade fair organisers, management consultancies and specialised hotel service providers.
In our 210-ECTS-variant you spend your 5th and 6th semester at an international partner
university of the IUBH abroad. You have the opportunity to do an additional Bachelor
degree there so that you have a double Bachelor degree after graduation, which will give
you even more opportunities to start a successful international career.

AVIATION
The aviation industry is forecasting further increases in passenger numbers for
the coming years. As a result, graduates with a degree in Aviation Management
will land great positions in interesting aviation professions – especially at the
management level. In our Aviation Management Master’s degree programmes, you
have the opportunity to combine your existing knowledge with sector-specific know-
how. You learn about the main drivers of airline profitability – network planning
and revenue management –, acquire knowledge of environmental issues such as
noise and emissions, deepen your knowledge of airline and airport financing and
discuss current issues from different perspectives.

Find the best programme for your needs and career goals - at IUBH we offer three
different master´s programmes specialising in Aviation:
•• M.A. International Aviation Management
•• M.A. International Management with Major in Aviation
•• MBA International Business with Major in Aviation

Career prospects
We prepare our students for a career in an exciting industry by covering
all areas of air travel from airlines, airports, air traffic control and ground
handling to marketing, financing, cargo and so on. Our graduates generally
start their careers as a qualified member of a team and then move on
from the position of team leader to middle management – such as at an airline, airport,
handling or consulting firm. In these positions, for example, they expand the airline’s
network, set fares or conduct competitor analyses. The career opportunities look
very good, as the demand for air transport services is increasing alongside the
booming economy. Many graduates already have an employment contract when
they complete their last exam. However, worldwide readiness to work in a global
industry is a must, in addition to an unconditional ability to work as part of a team.”

BIG DATA
MANAGEMENT
Be it in a bricks and mortar retailer or an online shop, in the finance sector or
­aviation, the travel industry or telecommunications; data affects business success
in almost every sector. The large amount of unstructured data collected needs to
not only be stored, but also analysed and effectively used. As a big data manager, it
is your responsibility to generate as much strategic use out of the data as possible.
You will also coordinate corresponding projects, and act as the contact person
between senior management, data engineers, and ­data analysts. You understand
the principals of information management, as well as artificial intelligence, and
have a feel for new technologies and their applications in a business environment.
You are also able to process data to suit the company strategy by understanding
your management’s needs. Lastly, you will use your expertise to critically analyse
current advancements in the industry, differentiate between short-lived trends
and realistic solutions, and present the best ­suggestions to senior management.

Find the best programme for your needs and career goals - at IUBH we offer three
different master´s programmes specialising in Big Data Management:
•• M.A. Big Data Management
•• M.A. International Management with Major in Big Data Management

Career prospects
Large and fast-growing companies are investing substantially in the implementation
of data management systems and structures. As a result, qualified experts in the
area have plenty of opportunities. Project managers specialising in the area of big
data have excellent career opportunities in almost all forward-looking sectors,
especially in the IT, media, and digital sectors, in the automotive and finance
industries, as well as in marketing and sales. Your role as the responsible big data
project manager is an important connector between management and technical
support. You prepare tailored solutions for your company based on customer,
market, and/or competitor information, and always have an eye on the latest
developments, for example within the area of artificial intelligence.

and other complex questions on the topic of financing and investing. Upon

Why specialise in Finance & Accounting


The financial department is one of the most important components of
organisational management, and we have seen how financial institutions
have experienced various crises across the globe. I wanted to study in the
field of finances because I want to support companies and organisations
in their fiscal planning. At IUBH, I have the chance to specialise in Finance and
Accounting. I also consider it a great advantage that the course is so practical;
that I learn how to apply my knowledge. I am currently in the last semester of my
course of studies and am very optimistic about finding a job which corresponds
to my skills and competences.”

Nowadays, finding the right employees is a decisive factor in the success
of a company. The HR Manager plays an important role in this. They
bring together the interests of the company and of its employees, and
tackle various issues, for example, the areas where there is a lack of staff,
the existing opportunities for growth, and where new, appropriate employees
can be found to ensure the long-term success of the company.  The tasks of
the personnel manager don’t end with the employment of a new member of
staff. They are responsible for the supervision and continued development of
the employee, ensuring, for example, that they receive a suitable onboarding,
and carry out ongoing performance reviews with them. In addition to specialist
knowledge, people who wish to work in this branch need to bring with them a
pronounced psychological and social intuition and good people skills.”

HOSPITALITY
The global hospitality industry is very diverse. With experts predicting the creation
of 70 million jobs in this dynamic and fast-growing sector over the next decade,
successful graduates with this specialisation are extremely employable. Successful
IUBH graduates will be in high demand in the areas of catering, conference and events
management, the tourism and leisure sector, the entertainment sector and facilities
management and food service management. Our master‘s degree programmes will
help you gain an international perspective on one of the fastest growing global
industries and enable you to develop entrepreneurial, operational and strategic
management skills that can be implemented in the global hospitality arena.

We offer three different master´s programmes specialising in Hospitality:


•• M.A. International Hospitality
•• M.A. International Management with Major in Hospitality
•• MBA International Business with Major in Hospitality

Career prospects
The hospitality industry is an important job creator and economic factor:
one in every ten jobs worldwide is based in tourism. BUT, there are genuinely
few ‘Hospitality Managers’. More accurately, this term sums up all leading and
managerial positions within the hospitality industry. This is first divided into
the hotel and catering industries; secondly into companies which combine hospitality
with other sectors, such as, for example, the cruise industry, or the conference and
health industries; and thirdly, into those service providers who offer services for the
industry, in fields such as technology, consulting or e-commerce. In accordance with
this diversity, the career prospects of our graduates are very positive, as the growing
demand also increases the demand for qualified young talent. Our graduates are
working successfully across the globe, many of them in managerial positions, in all
three areas. At IUBH, we impart knowledge for all disciplines of business relevance, and
expand on these through high-quality guest lecturers from the business, ­current
case studies, consulting projects, excursions, and practical exercises.”

IT MANAGEMENT
Information is the most important capital for businesses. But who decides what
information is valuable? How do you get the best out of this information? And which
technology can be useful? These are the questions answered by the IT Management
specialists. In our IT Management degree programmes, you will learn about the
development and management of IT infrastructures, international project management
concepts and the implementation of IT services for internal stakeholders and clients.
You will also learn the basics of software engineering and investigate topics such as
IT compliance, data protection and information security. In addition to expert know-
how, you will deepen your knowledge in the area of general management.

At IUBH we offer three different master´s programmes specialising in IT Management:


•• M.A. IT Management
•• M.A. International Management with Major in IT Management
•• MBA International Business with Major in IT Management

Career prospects
As an IT Manager, it is your job to ensure that the best possible use is made
of the data, information and knowledge of a company. You represent the
interface between company management and information technology,
and lay the foundations for risk assessment and information security.
You manage development projects across departments, processes and technologies,
and cooperate with partner businesses, companies or governmental organisations.
IT Managers are among the most sought-after specialist staff in industry, in the
public sector, and in governmental organisations. Areas of application include
information management in start-ups, to small- and medium-sized companies,
to the computer centres of corporate groups and institutions which operate
on a global scale. At the IUBH, we optimally prepare you for this in a practice-
oriented manner: a high measure of personal interaction, work in project
groups, continuous supervision, and the readiness to integrate your pre-existing
knowledge and experiences form the basis for your career in this interdisciplinary
and challenging environment.”

Career prospects
A broad scope of duties awaits a future Marketing Manager. Classically, the
entry into the career occurs via product management or sales, but the tasks
evolve in a very dynamic way. In the age of digitalisation, analytical skills
are becoming increasingly important, as illustrated by the fields of big data
and by the challenges in online marketing. Due to the dynamism in this professional
field, we at the IUBH are focused on enabling the students to be able to handle the
constantly-increasing flow of information, to recognise structures, and to critically
question concepts. IUBH provides an education which is heavily practice-oriented,
so that our graduates are immediately ready for work, and so that they know
what to expect in their future career. Their career prospects are good because,
thanks to digitalisation, many new fields are opening up in marketing in which
young executives can very quickly make a name for themselves as ‘digital natives’.“

MBA
MASTER OF BUSINESS
ADMINISTRATION
This programme offers business and non-business graduates, such as engineers,
natural sciences and humanities graduates, the opportunity to extend their
managerial skills and focuses on updating and increasing your general managerial
knowledge. If you decide on the 90 ECTS programme, you can choose between a
number of attractive specialisations.

According to experts, MBA graduates increase their salary expectations by 30%


through documented leadership skills, general knowledge of modern business
management and a personal global network. Successful MBA graduates will be
presented with countless career opportunities and can expect to enjoy a senior
position in a wide range of roles, such as regional marketing manager, international
business developer, marketing strategy manager or project manager.

Career prospects
Ultimately, the global access to labour and material resources as
enabled by the Internet still requires the ability to assess chances and
risks, and to make well-informed, economically-sensible decisions.
International Business attempts to refine the sense of responsibility
which is necessary for businesses and society. Graduates of our course take on
tasks in middle- and upper management, from project management to founding
their own businesses. Based on their initial professional experiences in the
most varied of areas, they have developed expectations of themselves and of
their work which include responsibility for employees and an understanding
of economic connections within the business. The career prospects are
excellent: as shown by taking just a quick glance at the relevant job portals,
companies today expect work experience, intercultural skills, specialist
knowledge and leadership skills. These are all qualities provided by our
graduates.”

Path2Master
Do you have a university degree in a non-business subject, and would like to ­pursue a
career in management? Or would you like to complete a 60 ECTS master’s programme,
but don’t fulfil all of the requirements? Our Path2Master programme prepares non-­
business graduates for a business master and provides you with an extra 30 ECTS.
You focus on classic business administration content. This semester provides you with
the ideal preparation for the business content in the subsequent semesters of your
­master’s programme. You can also become acquainted with your later specialisations.
After one semester of intensive training in classical business administration, your
progression into all our master’s programmes is guaranteed!

I decided on IUBH because I could begin my course via the


Path2Master ­programme, without having previously done a
Bachelor’s in the same area. I estimate my future prospects at
being very good, as I will certainly benefit from my language skills,
and because I not only learn a lot as part of my normal studies, but can also
further myself independently through extracurricular activities.”
