Master’s program & job? BFFT makes it possible

In cooperation with the Technical University of Ingolstadt (THI), BFFT offers its personnel the opportunity of taking part in the “Mobility and Innovation Management” master’s program free of charge. Interested BFFT employees had to go through an internal selection process for the master’s program. The academic title of “Master of Business Administration” awaits the students at the end of the standard period of study of five semesters, which usually only takes four semesters as a result of credits.

Seven BFFT employees from a wide range of departments are currently taking part in the Masters in Management (MiM) program – from a driver assistance developer and a test system engineer to vehicle testing. Self-learning and attendance phases at the university alternate with each other, in order to be able to complete the course of studies in parallel to a full-time job. In this respect, the latter were conveniently scheduled for Fridays and Saturdays.

The “Mobility and Innovation Management” degree program is aimed at graduates with an engineering or business-oriented degree with the relevant, qualified professional experience in management, automotive or mobility of at least one year. The course of studies is divided into ten modules which the budding masters have to tackle.

BFFT and the THI have cultivated a direct relationship with each other for some time now – be it via a cooperative partnership with the Formula Student Team Schanzer Racing Electric, the Students’ Life initiative, which has the goal of making the lives of students as agreeable as possible away from everyday campus life, or the consult.IN management consultancy. In addition to this, BFFT CEO Markus Fichtner has been represented on the University Council since October 2015. Students of the THI are also often guests of BFFT and use the modern headquarters for excursions or other projects.
