Overview of further study programs
Executive Master of Insurance (EMI)
The Executive Master of Insurance (E.M. Insurance) is a part-time degree program with a clear focus on insurance-related topics. The program enables highly motivated professionals to acquire additional background knowledge as well as to deepen and broaden already existing knowledge. The core topics are insurance-related issues, ranging from general economics and mathematics to specific institutional issues. The focus is on today's challenges in the rapidly changing insurance markets.
A solid knowledge of economic fundamentals and subject-specific concepts has become more than ever a central factor for a variety of job profiles and activities. This is particularly true for graduates of mathematical courses of study, who in a large number of cases take up a professional activity in very application-oriented sectors such as the financial services sector, in management consulting or also in IT system houses in predominantly very heterogeneous teams. In particular, still relatively young professions such as actuary require not only mathematical-quantitative skills but also a profound knowledge of concepts and terminology from economics.
In order to meet these requirements from practice and the professional world, students of mathematics or business mathematics at LMU can take courses from the Faculty of Business Administration as an independent or integrated minor subject.
In the diploma program in mathematics, "Insurance Economics" can be chosen as a minor subject; these students then take courses from the entire range of courses offered by the Faculty of Business Administration or from the Special Business Administration "Risk and Insurance" in accordance with the respective examination regulations. If the major "Business Mathematics" is chosen instead, Business Administration is already an integrated minor subject, and these students deepen their knowledge in the main course of study at the chairs of the major "Finance", "Insurance" or "Capital Market Research".
The mathematics courses will also be converted to Bachelor/Master in the course of the Bologna process. In the bachelor's degree program in mathematics, there will be a choice of minor subjects, including "Business Administration" (30 ECTS) or "Insurance and Risk Management" (30 ECTS); the bachelor's degree program in business mathematics will also include corresponding minor subjects.

As part of their studies in media informatics, students can choose the application subject of media management. Media management is a special field of business administration. The aim of the application subject is to impart economic skills in addition to the fundamental aspects of media technology and media products.
Within the framework of media management, students gain insights into the business framework in which media products are planned and implemented. Above all, areas such as management, content, production and value-oriented action represent a useful supplement to the basic technical knowledge of media informatics, enabling students to hold their own in management positions after graduation.

As a member of the Elite Network Bavaria, the Center for Digital Technology and Management (CDTM) offers the study program Technology Management. The goal of the 4-semester program is to provide practical experience in technology research, product development, information systems management, business planning and entrepreneurship in addition to application-oriented theoretical and methodological knowledge. Students are thus prepared for the increasingly complex management tasks at the interface between digital technologies and management in business.
The additional training at the Center for Digital Technology and Management is both international and interdisciplinary: participants in the program, which is taught in English, are recruited from the fields of business administration, computer science and electrical engineering. Close cooperation with sponsoring companies from industry and business also ensures a high level of practical relevance.
