Management and Technology Update for Technicians and Engineers

SHB certification course on current best practice know-how in business administration and engineering

Technical experts are keen to keep moving forward, have their say, and be part of business decision-making. To do this, it is essential to have a solid grasp of the most important interdependencies in business while also keeping pace with the very latest technologies. To share this knowledge, Business School Alb-Schwarzwald at Steinbeis University Berlin (SHB) is offering a certification course called Management and Technology Update for Technicians and Engineers.

The course revolves closely around business practice, providing a memorable overview of the connections in business, underpinned by practical examples. As such, it provides an ideal foundation for becoming involved in management decision-making or entering management. The course spans ten seminar days in total over the course of several weeks. The sessions before 3 p.m. each day focus specifically on management topics for technical experts. After 3 p.m., attention is given to updates in the latest technologies. Each day the course participants visit a different company, where they can talk with (development) engineers and hear about concepts in a variety of sectors of industry. This is because some of the most important new ideas often come from different industries and this can help foster “foresight.” The courses are held in Rottweil and the surrounding area, considered a hotbed of medical technology and mechanical engineering.
