The Master of Science (MSc) in Facility Management (FM) deals with methodological, technical and managerial issues in FM. The consecutive Master's degree programme builds on the Bachelor's degree in Facility Management or directly related discipline and enables students to deepen their scientific understanding and provides a practical awareness of this interdisciplinary management field.
To ensure that the most up-to-date, practically relevant projects and research are included in the Master's degree programme, MSc students may be involved in national and international research work at the Institute of Facility Management.
The study programme carries 90 ECTS points. It is divided into subject specialisation and into learning scientific methods and business skills. 30 ECTS points are awarded for the Master.
A Master of Science ZFH in Facility Management provides students with a nationally and internationally recognized degree.
They develop their ability to cope with complexity and develop their scientific skills. Internationally oriented organisations increasingly expect a Master's degree as an entrance qualification for leadership positions. Growing cost pressures and the need to increase productivity mean that expert Facility Managers are in demand, not only in the private sector, but also in public institutions.
The Master of Science in Facility Management is modular, and each semester has a specific focus.
In all three semesters scientific knowledge and methods are taught in order to promote action-oriented problem-solving skills. This practice- and project-oriented training promotes transdisciplinary and holistic thinking in FM. Intensive collaboration with partners from the field and with public authorities ensures that the Master's degree programme provides a sound preparation for the world of work.
The educational concept combines independent learning, (supervised or individual) with contact lessons (lectures, seminars). Participants work individually and in online networks. In the contact situations, the principles the students develop in independent study are discussed in greater depth.
With this dual teaching approach, both the dynamic educational requirements of the FM profession and the individual preferences of the students are taken into account. Exploratory learning is emphasised in that students own generation of knowledge comes to the fore during work on the Masters thesis.
Scientific Methodes and Business Skills
Scientific working methods are specifically adapted for implementation in Facility Management contexts. The skills imparted, together with managerial and technical competences, form the basis for case studies and the Master's Thesis. Topics include quantitative and qualitative survey methods, databases and statistics, and the presentation and discussion of research papers.
The module group "FM processes" focuses on organisations support processes. Special attention is paid to current research issues in order to optimise these processes. The primary focus of each module is the relationship of the topic to the FM model, and exploration of relevant sub-areas of the FM model.
The question of optimisation and adaptation of the FM model is always at the centre: how can FM optimally support an organisations core business?
International FM and specific FM Aspects
In the era of globalization, intercultural skills and knowledge of the international Facility Management market are essential.
The Master's Thesis is an individual scientific work, applying the skills and knowledge acquired during the study programme to specific research questions.
Building on the Bachelor's degree in Facility Management, a Master's degree offers students the opportunity to deepen their knowledge. Excellence is sought at masters level. Thus, an above-average university degree and / or additional evidence of achievement is expected.
The Master's programme is intended primarily for graduates with a professional degree in Facility Management at Bachelor's level.
Students with a different qualification, for example in the fields of business administration, hospitality management, civil engineering, building services engineering, architecture or other FM related studies, who can provide proof of the required entry competences will be admitted to the Master's degree programme.
The lectures will mainly be held in English. English is the language of all scripts and documentation. Knowledge of English (level C1 according to the Common European Framework of Languages proficiency scale) is therefore essential for successful study. Students can choose individually whether to write their assignments in German or English.
