Master@IBM: Study at the HECTOR School & foster your career with IBM

The Master@IBM program enables participants to continue their academic education towards a master’s degree, while gaining professional experience and working for IBM at the same time.

The program "Master@IBM" is based upon the cooperation of IBM with several academic partners. The HECTOR School as the Technology Business School of the Karlsruhe Insitute of Technology (KIT) with its part-time master programs for engineers, computer scientists and economists is one of them. The KIT is worldwide renowned as one of the best universities in research and education with a strong focus on information technology, energy, and mobility. Current rankings like the QS World University Rankings just underlined this again.

Master@IBM addresses ambitious bachelor graduates who want to start their career and qualify at the same time for leading and expert positions. The study program starts annually in autumn. It offers multiple seats each year. Applicants can choose in cooperation with which university they would like to obtain their master (while working at IBM).


Currently Master@IBM students, who chose the HECTOR School as the academic partner, e.g. study the master programs Information Systems Engineering and Management or Production & Operations Management. Read more about their experiences, e.g. in the interview with the alumni Britta Daffner.
