Which company are you working for at the moment and what is your position/ your Master’s program at the moment?
I am currently working as a Consultant in Digitalization & IT at UNITY AG.

Which technical specialization did you take during your IBT studies?
I chose the Electrical Engineering specialization.

Where did you take your mandatory internship during your studies?
I did my mandatory internship at Schaeffler in Herzogenaurauch, in the Digitalization Department, where I then wrote my bachelor thesis in the field of Robotic Process Automation.

What did you like about your International Business and Technology studies in particular?
What I liked the most about the IBT program was the people, the students as well as the professors. Everybody was so open minded and nice. Our professors were great. I especially enjoyed the writing of my bachelor thesis with Prof. Rogers, she was such as good supervisor. The fact that the program was both in English and German was a great advantage, but also the right combination between business and engineering open to me great opportunities. I was able to do working student positions as well as internships at Siemens, Audi and Schaeffler. Nuremberg is a great location to study!

Did your studies prepare you well for your first job after graduation/ for your Master‘s program?
I think that both my studies and my work experience really prepared me for my first job as a graduate. Without one or the other, I would not have the skills that I have and I wouldn’t have got the position in the first place. While I was writing my bachelor thesis I applied to only one position, which was my 1st choice, and I got the job! What else could I say!

Do you have any recommendations for future International Business and Technology students?
2 words: discipline and perseverance. With those 2, you will be fine. It is a very challenging program, but it will give you access to so many opportunities in the job market. It is really worth the effort and I am really happy I chose this program. Another piece of advice for the international students, do not neglect German, you will need it when you start looking for a job! Do as many German courses as necessary while you are studying, not only because it is free but also because it is the best time to learn. It will seem hard all along the way and believe me the first semesters are the easiest one but if we did it, you can!

Where did you take your mandatory internship during your studies?
I took my mandatory internship in Frankfurt am Main at Deutsche Börse Group in Project Controlling, part of the Controlling Department, where I stayed as a Working Student afterwards.

What did you like about your International Business and Technology studies in particular?
The IBT program is very flexible and students get the wonderful chance to choose amongst lots of study paths. It is not only the technical specialization, but also different languages, electives in the 6th semester, possibilities of going abroad as well as the unlimited variety of topics for the Bachelor Thesis. I enjoyed switching from business subjects to technical ones, where one never gets bored as well as learns to work fast and efficiently with different types of information.

Did your studies prepare you well for your first job after graduation/ for your Master‘s program?
During the IBT Program, I didn’t only acquire a very solid base for my employment and further studies through business, technology and intercultural skills but also by gaining soft skills such as discipline, sense of responsibility and teamwork. I believe it is just the right mix for future personal and professional life in our digital and globalized world.

Do you have any recommendations for future International Business and Technology students?
Sure! I highly recommend students to commit to their studies although it is hard and sometimes seems impossible. Also, this program definitely requires affinity for mathematics and strong logical skills. With a high failing rate, it can be frustrating to go further but trust me, you can do it. For international students, I also recommend to learn German as quickly as possible. Do not give up and believe in yourself!

Which company are you working for at the moment and what is your position/ your Master’s program at the moment?
I am working as a sales strategist for the automotive supplier Bocar Group in Mexico-City, where I analyze mobility trends (electric, autonomous, connected and shared) and their implications for the Bocar Group.

Which technical specialization did you take during your IBT studies?
Mechanical Engineering

Where did you take your mandatory internship during your studies?
I have completed my internship at the BMW Group in Munich within the purchasing area of lightweight casting parts, where I was involved in the procurement process for electric vehicles and the development of the area’s supply chain strategy.

What did you like about your International Business and Technology studies in particular?
Before I decided to go to university, I worked about 5 years (incl. apprenticeship) as an industrial clerk for Pilkington AG, an international glass manufacturer. This experience has taught me that in an increasingly complex and globalized working environment, it is essential to demonstrate profound economical, but also adequate technical knowledge; ideally complemented by English linguistic skills. This is what I was looking for, when searching for a bachelor study program.
The Technische Hochschule Nürnberg provides exactly these key attributes in its unique bachelor’s degree course “International Business and Technology”. You develop several areas of competence, you can choose between three different technical study subjects (according to your needs) and the majority of lectures are taught in English.
Besides, I fondly remember the international environment of this study program, with fellow students from all over the world. This allowed me to grow personally, become more open-minded and appreciate different point of views from people of diverse background and cultures.

Did your studies prepare you well for your first job after graduation/ for your Master‘s program?
Yes, absolutely. As I mentioned, in today’s and tomorrow’s world, more and more companies are looking for the attributes that the International Business and Technology studies offer. Be it at BMW or at Bocar Group, the IBT study program was highly regarded when I applied for those companies. During your studies, you develop several areas of competence, not only hard skills but also soft skills, that are required to successfully start your professional career.

Do you have any recommendations for future International Business and Technology students?
Enjoy your time and all the freedom that a student life brings with it. Don’t be afraid of upcoming obstacles. Be disciplined and attend your courses on a daily basis, then you are well prepared for all the challenges that you will encounter during your studies. I also recommend gathering as much experiences abroad as possible. Being in a foreign country, separated from your familiar surroundings, are the moments where you learn about your personal skills and strength profile and surpass yourself.
To finish off with a quote by Theodore Roosevelt: “Nothing worth having comes easy.”

Markus Ratzesberger

Markus Ratzesberger

Year of Graduation?
I graduated in June 2017.

Which company are you working for at the moment and what is your position?
I am currently working as a project engineer at N-ERGIE, a regional energy supplier, here in Nuremberg. I am responsible for the successful rollout of digital metering systems, all kinds of interesting pilot projects and overall the testing and evaluation of new technologies (e.g. the use of a Long-Range-Wide-Area-Network or short LoRaWAN in Nuremberg).

Which technical specialization did you take during your IBT studies?
I took mechanical engineering. In hindsight, I am personally really happy that I decided for this specialization as the lectures covered a lot of interesting topics. All three options are great and every student should take his or her time to decide which one they want to choose at the end of the second semester.

Where did you take your mandatory internship during your studies?
My internship was “my foot in the door” to my current position mentioned above. I am actually siting at the same desk now with the same colleagues since day one of my internship more than one and a half years ago. Back then my task was to test the receive level of GSM and LTE within the power supply network of N-ERGIE. I used a geo spatial analysis tool to display the different quality levels of reception that would help us decide what kind of communication technology we should use in different areas of our supply network to communicate with our digital metering systems.
 
What did you like about your International Business and Technology studies in particular?
Oh to make it short I would say I liked a lot of it. The nice atmosphere overall, the interesting topics covered in the lectures or the many new friendships made during your studies are just small parts of all the things that make this program so outstanding. I think everyone has certain expectations towards the program when they apply for it but I do not think that anyone can actually imagine the things that happen in and around the lectures. Just by being part of a group of people from all over the world with different cultural backgrounds, religions and mindsets you become a more open-minded person yourself and you learn to understand and appreciate differences between the several members of this group. IBT certainly had a big impact on my personal development and I would not want to miss any of it.
 
Did your studies prepare you well for your first job after graduation/ for your Master‘s program?
Content wise? Well, initially I wanted to build cars or planes, hence I decided for mechanical engineering as my specialization. Now I am sitting here planning the digitalization of our electric meters and dealing with digital communication and electric stuff overall. I never had a single lecture in all these topics besides the basic electrics lecture that everyone gets. Do I struggle because of that fact now? No, I do not struggle because content of the lectures is by far not everything you learn during your studies: IBT combines so many different fields of studies and students face new and completely different challenges every semester, that once you have graduated, you are basically ready to face all kinds of challenges in your future career. You learn how to adapt quickly, how to teach yourself new and unfamiliar content and most importantly to combine the ways of thinking from the perspective of a business (wo-)man as well as an engineer. I left the IBT program with a degree that made me feel prepared for everyone and anything waiting for me. And so far I managed quite well with all that electric stuff.
 
Do you have any recommendations for future International Business and Technology students?
You are interested in business topics as well as technical topics? You want to lay the foundations for a bright professional future?
IBT is not high school anymore and by far not your typical study program where you can just come to lectures once in a lifetime, learn the summary of a student from 5 semesters ago by heart, do a few old exams that you got from a friend of a friend and then somehow still pass with an acceptable grade because you could guess the multiple-choice questions. No, IBT is challenging right from the beginning and you will most certainly say at some point: “it is a lot right now”. However, what you gain from investing all this sweat and tears (no worries, just a saying…) is definitely worth the struggle: you are an engineer that knows as much about the business side as you do about the technical side. Do not underestimate that fact, as this is a big, big plus compared to your competitors on the job market.  You have gained experiences in working in an international atmosphere which is becoming a “must have” with most global players nowadays. You managed to organize yourself and you showed the stamina to overcome a variety of challenges. Once you have graduated, you are ready and a wanted job prospect. So what are you waiting for? Join the IBT program and become part of something bigger!

Daniel Demian

Academic options after you've earned your bachelor's degree

With a strong focus on their technical or business specialization during semester 6, students have the chance to follow an academic career with a master degree in either Engineering or Business after graduating from the program.

For the bachelor’s programme, there are formal requirements that you must fulfil in order to be able to start the degree programme. There are also a number of personal requirements that you should meet.

Formal requirements

  • Admission to the Bachelor International Business and Technology is granted on the basis of the so-called Numerus Clausus (NC) which ranks the applicants according to their final average grade of their school graduation certificate.The NC - grade up to which grade applicants will be admitted - is not known prior to the admssion process. It rather changes with each admission process based on the number of applicants and their individual grades.
    The level of the NC in the semester the application is submitted is unknown, but the values from previous semesters are useful starting points (Last semester’s minimum grade point average for admission). Apart from the average grade, German applicants and applicants from EU-member countries can improve their application and increase their chances of getting into the program. For more information please follow 
  • having strong mathematical, analytical skills and great enthusiasm for technology
  • being interested in different fields of study and think on interdisciplinary level
  • being open-minded and internationally oriented
  • .
  • International applicants need to prove basic skills in German (A2 level) at the time of enrolment.

Personal characteristics and skills

  • having strong mathematical, analytical skills and great enthusiasm for technology
  • being interested in different fields of study and think on interdisciplinary level
  • being open-minded and internationally oriented

Common stumbling blocks

  • being able to move around different fields of study: Business, engineering and natural sciences, languages and soft skills
  • starting semester 3: being able to deal with high workload in engineering subjects
  • to finish the program in 7 semesters: In general, IBT students need more than 7 semesters to complete the program. The program is very challenging in terms of content and, in addition, it is sometimes difficult for students to place the internship between the sixth and seventh semester according to the curriculum, so many complete the internship in an additional semester.

How do my skills measure up against the program requirements? How do I prepare myself?
