Do I need a business plan as a business administration student?

We know that business people have to contend with a lot of preconceptions and that these preconceptions also transfer to the whole process of studying business. But we can ease your mind: At Nuremberg Tech things are different. We’re looking for personalities, not clichés. Students who will work with us and our partners in industry sustainably on the future.

Our faculty is invested in preparing the curriculum so that you will not only be rewarded for memorizing. We’re looking for your active participation and individual input. You want to know how you will start or lead your business and what will really matter when you do? You want to sharpen your personal skills instead of spending your time in mainstream theories?

We offer you real projects, a culture of open communication, and people who you can talk to - no matter what it’s about. Even if, sometimes, you don’t have a plan.

You want to know more? We’re here for you. Have the confidence to tackle the really interesting issues.
