Late applications are for short time possible! Professional MBA Automotive Industry


The automotive and component supply industry are faced with important challenges, such as changing customer behaviors of the so-called generation XYZ, new players on the market, e-mobility, digitalization, globalization and others. In order to stay competitive, managers must be able to identify short-term and long-term challenges, to structure complex, dynamic projects and to make the right decisions in complex and difficult situations. Also the leadership role in Central and Eastern Europe is subject to different demands due to multi-sectoral requirements. 

With the Professional MBA Automotive Industry Program (http://automotive.tuwien.ac.at) the TU Wien and the STU Bratislava have been offering a program tailored to the needs of the automotive and supplier industry for the past 10 years, responding to the demand for training for managers in the industry. The MBA program is presented in modules, takes 4 semesters and the lectures are held in English. 

In addition to current business topics, the students of the Professional MBA Automotive Industry gain a deep insight into the structures and processes of the automotive and supplier industry, especially in the area of production, logistics and industry 4.0. "We need a new kind of manager. I'm convinced that topics like electromobility or new business models require different thinking than the same old 'Let’s produce cars and sell them'. That’s what we want to achieve in our MBA ", says academic director Prof. Wilfried Sihn.


Over the past 10 years, an international alumni network of more than 140 graduates from 27 countries has emerged. One of them is Roland Hintringer, program graduate of 2015 and currently Vice President of Innovation & Technology at MIBA AG:

"The program enabled me to improve my management skills and expand my network in the automotive industry. Most lecturers hold leading positions in the industry and provide exciting insights into the "real life" of the automotive industry. I still have contact with some of them, which made this course a very valuable experience for me. "

The Professional MBA Automotive Industry is celebrating its 10th anniversary and starts again on September 26, 2019.

Late applications are for short time possible!
