PostgraduateCourses: Master, MBA & Co

While doctoral studies focus on academic work, a postgraduate course is more geared to teaching the subject matter for a particular profession.

Aim of postgraduate studies

A postgraduate course is therefore not a substitute for a doctorate, but serves to acquire practical knowledge that can be directly applied in everyday working life. Before starting the selection of the course of study, anyone interested should think carefully about the reasons for which they are even aiming for a postgraduate course. He should find out about it clear find out what his personal career planning looks like and whether a postgraduate course is actually the best and most suitable instrument for acquiring the skills that are lacking and what is being sought Objective to reach. For example, a postgraduate course in “European Culture and Economy” sounds attractive at first, as it seems to convey a lot of knowledge that can be used well on the job market. Ultimately, however, the professional fields that are open with this degree are just as diffuse as with a master's degree in any humanities subject. There is not necessarily added value for the labor market.

Selection of the course

A postgraduate course makes sense if it conveys exactly the skills required by the Company demanded and needed. If you want to qualify in this way, you should first decide which profession you are aiming for and then choose the appropriate postgraduate course. It is important to find out exactly about the forms, content and entry requirements such as foreign languages ​​or work experience, but also about study locations in Germany and abroad. It should also be considered whether there is a willingness to accept an impairment of private life and whether the financing has been clarified. Because of the high costs, a postgraduate course is not the right way to simply postpone the job search.

Forms, duration, access and degrees

A postgraduate course can be completed at a state university as well as at a private institution. Full or part-timeCourses are possible.

Full or part-time study

In a full-time program, as with any other degree, attendance is mandatory, but a full-time program usually only lasts between one and four semesters. Part-time studies, on the other hand, can be carried out alongside work, but it takes significantly longer. Extra-occupational courses can be completed in the evenings and on weekends or as distance learning. The latter is particularly useful if the desired course is not offered on site, but it is not possible to move. Programs are increasingly being structured modularly, so that either the entire course or only parts of it can be taken, which is particularly interesting for those who already have previous knowledge, for example from previous training or a job.

Study abroad

PostgraduateCourses can of course also be completed at foreign institutions, whereby particular attention must be paid to the quality and usability of the degree on the job market. In this context, the changes within the framework of the Bologna Process are of particular importance: So far, some postgraduateCourses with a diploma or university certificate are still offered in Germany. But while a diploma degree has a certain reputation, the university's own references and certificates are often little or only regionally known. It therefore certainly makes sense that in Germany there will soon only be postgraduateCourses with a master’s degree. The internationally recognized master’s degree, which comes from the Anglo-Saxon language and which has usually gone through an accreditation process, offers the chance of widespread acceptance on the job market.
