Consequently, software engineers need to move beyond the boundaries of their job-specific ex- pertise and enhance their profession- al profiles by acquiring managerial and interpersonal competences. Software engineers who aim to be future business leaders should not only possess such multiple skills, but should be able to translate theoretical knowledge into business practices, engender interdisciplinary dialogues and communicate successfully in an international and intercultural envi- ronment. The M.Sc. Software Engineering and Management has been tailored to the needs of students who are interested in interdisciplinary approaches and seek a good foundation for their future careers. „Whatever career path you choose - be it software engineering or Where the technological, management – it is the problem solving capacity you have acquired organisational and entrepreneurial in this Master programme that gives you the edge over your competitors. aspects of software development meet, The world is full of challenges.
