Master's Programme at HSBA: New Admission Requirements

Master's programmes at HSBA are now also open to graduates of undergraduate degree programmes with a focus on economics.

In order to enable graduates of Bachelor's degree programmes with an economic focus, such as engineering, geography, sociology or computer science, to study for a Master's degree at HSBA, the admission requirements have been reformulated in the Enrolment and Admission Regulations (ImmaZulO). In its meeting yesterday, the University Council, the highest decision-making body of the HSBA Hamburg School of Business Administration, unanimously approved the changes.

"Since the start of the Master's programme, there has been a steady increase in enquiries from other disciplines, including many promising applicants who would have been a good fit for the respective study cohort," explains Professor Susanne Hensel-Börner, programme director of the Master's programme Digital Transformation & Sustainability. "Therefore, we are very pleased that we can now also enable students from other disciplines to participate with our Master's programmes in economics and thus include interesting new perspectives in our teaching. After all, many bear responsibility for shaping digital and sustainable development, and educational opportunities must be opened up accordingly."

The selection of the new degree programmes whose graduates can apply for a consecutive Master's programme at HSBA is based on the consideration that their approach and way of thinking create the appropriate conditions for postgraduate study. Consecutivity in terms of content is checked and guaranteed via the ECTS. Thus, a degree programme with an economic reference must comprise at least 60 ECTS credits in economic subjects or subject areas. The economic reference can also be proven by relevant professional experience.
