I am doing an upgrade to my MSc gained 10 years ago now at Viennas University of Technology. The “familiy” of MSc’s in engineering management has grown during last 10 years. About 130 persons passed this program getting a very unique education.
Being a technician to get knowldege of all fields like in a standard MBA-education and having the addon of technical issues for management generates very good oppurtunities for management positions being different to “bean counters”.
If you are interested in the thematics follow this link http://cec.tuwien.ac.at/engineering_school/engineering_management/?L=1 . Prof. Kopacek is really an amazing guy with a great vision starting this program 12 years ago. I have been in the 3rd program and was in the hotel accross the street when Mercedes bought Chrysler. It was a great time and this program opened many doors for me comming in touch with leading entrepreneurs like Frank Stronach from Magna ( http://www.wa-mozart.eu/en/ExkursionHeadquarterMagna.html ).
Looking back 10 years, it was a great decision to run through this program -> allowing me today jump into a managing job at WareLite Ltd. UK just by meeting the CEO and start to talk. Based on 19 years of SAP-Expirience combining all of my NON-SAP-Experince with SAP-Experience today this program helped me realy to face all challenges comming up being a BPX understanding needs of most people either being financial, logistic, production or human ressources staff and to talk to them in their language.
