This master's degree program stands out due to its focus on strategic management. Here you will learn the concepts and practical methods for strategy and strategy development. In addition, the master's degree program places particular importance on the "human factor". The human factor issue is addressed across all the technical modules, whereby both the individual as well as the behavior in organizations, and the impact on decisions and actions are explored. The master's degree program places particular importance on practical training. For example, in the 2nd semester students are to create a risk management system with various real software solutions as part of a multiple semester project course.

The introduction of the planned master's degree program has been welcomed by many experts in Austria, Germany and Switzerland. Mainly due to a lack of in-depth training, particularly in Austria, in the areas of risk management and corporate security up till now.The graduates of the master's degree program in Risk Management and Corporate Security will be qualified to develop and realize a comprehensive risk management within a company and to establish comprehensive strategic security concepts, and will be capable of advising management in the development of new business fields and in company development. Due to the strong international focus, you will thus be well prepared for a position both in a commercial enterprise as well as an international institution.
