The MPMD curriculum is designed to bring students from various academic backgrounds from the basics of project management and data science to the level of expert application knowledge in both fields.

Modules in international business law, change management and leadership, cross-cultural communication and artificial intelligence complete the curriculum.

High employability

The modules are taught as a mix of lectures, interactive seminars and lab classes, with an emphasis on a practice-oriented academic approach, geared towards market demands, including

  • practical exercises, workshops and case studies
  • cooperations with companies
  • and the possibility to write the Master's thesis at a company

International context

Studying in the MPMD programme, you cannot help but acquire cross-cultural communication skills, not only in the respective module, but by working together with students of different nationalities and background.

Studying in the time of Corona

To ensure that MPMD students enjoy the full learning experience at all times during their studies at HTW Berlin, classes are held on-Campus, online or as a mix of both, as the Corona situation demands. A smooth switch between formats is possible - and has successfully taken place - from one day to the next: We and our students are getting really good at this ;)

To ensure maximum safety for our students and staff, on-campus classes are taught to split classes to allow for ample space between students and to comply with distancing rules. A comprehensive hygiene concept is in place at HTW Berlin.
