Master of Administrative Sciences

Back to previous page

In Europe as well as in other regions of the world fundamental transition processes are taking place in the systems of research, innovation and higher education: from regulation to deregulation and competition, from steering to market, from administration to management. Higher education and research institutions need highly trained experts who are able to analyse these new contexts and who have management and leadership skills to deal with the changes.

The Master in “Research and Innovation in Higher Education” (MARIHE) is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree offered in cooperation with University of Tampere (Finland), Beijing Normal University (China) and University of Applied Sciences Osnabrück (Germany). MARIHE is supported by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission. Students can apply for a scholarship granted by the European Commission.

MARIHE provides students a unique opportunity to develop a sound understanding of higher education systems and university development around the world. Students are taught by the leading edge of international scholars and have the opportunity to study in at least three different universities. During an internship provided by international enterprises and organisations they will get insight into fields of practice. Graduates of MARIHE are able take the lead in the future management and development of research and innovation in higher education.
