The Masters examination will determine if students have acquired the following: in-depth knowledge in economics, and business and human resources, an overview of the correlations and skills to apply and communicate the scientific methods and findings in the area of economic sciences as well as the second subject and the ability to work independently and scientifically.
In addition, the Masters programme also serves to show if sufficient aptitude and disposition are present to begin with doctoral studies.
The programme of study in Business and Human Resources is designed for one of the following occupational areas:

If one of the languages English, French or Spanish is chosen as a second subject, then Article 8 of the regulations for Masters degrees for teachers in Lower Saxony (Nds. MasterVO-Lehr) requires three months of programme-related studies abroad in a country in which the selected language is also the official language. The three months abroad can take place during either the Bachelors or the Masters programme.
Nds. MasterVO-Lehr further provides that occupational activities are verified by means of vocational training or subject-specific practicals. The subject-specific practicals must comprise a total of at least 52 weeks, while the individual internship must be at least 4 weeks long.
Students must pass an oral examination in the last semester. The examination covers all areas of the Masters programme. The objective of the oral examination is to verify that all necessary skills have been acquired, that they can be systematically set in relation to school and can be properly applied in teaching.
