Our corporate programs at the NIT range from workshops over several days and one-week summer schools, to management training for senior management personnel and prospective managers over several months. We can offer these programs in-house at your company, at the NIT in Hamburg, or at special creative workspaces. If you wish, attendees can complete the program with a certificate issued by the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH).

Jointly with tesa, a global manufacturer of self-adhesive system solutions, the NIT has developed a customized training program for senior management personnel. Its aim is to intensify executives’ expertise in their respective areas and also, more importantly, to understand and to question corporate strategy from a management perspective in this context and to discuss tesa’s further strategic development.
The management development program consists of six modules. The responsible tesa executive and an NIT faculty member specialized in the subject area implement each module. Faculty members come from different universities and business schools from NIT's international network.
The program is implemented annually at tesa locations around the world (Hamburg, Lisbon, Shanghai). It consists of Strategy, Human Resources, B2B, Supply Network, B2C, and Financial Management modules. Participants are global in scope and reflect a mix of different functional disciplines. They are mainly managers who hold a key position. On average, there are 15 attendees.
In this program, NIT performs an important control and coordination function, especially in respect of the faculty members involved. In developing the program’s contents NIT representatives contribute their extensive expertise in executive education.
The NIT contributes to continuous development of the program by means of tried and trusted forms of evaluation. Cooperation is practically applied through the program, as the program team is comprised of representatives of tesa and NIT. The program team meets regularly and discusses all aspects that are of program relevance, ranging from operational details of organization to fundamental issues that are to be dealt with in a module.
Thomas Fuchs explains the program's backstory:
" The task was to draw up a program for senior managers at the company that conveys to them the state of external knowledge at international business schools in combination with the situation at the company. It is to enable them to deal with corporate strategy, to take part in its further development and to develop and implement strategies of their own. What matters to us is that the employee’s focus is not solely on the company, but that their eyes are opened to the world around them: the global economy in its constant state of change, with the fluctuating markets and the competitive environment. Given that this is a management program we would like our employees to be taught knowledge from the company's key areas of specialization.
We chose the NIT because it drew up a program for us that is precisely geared to meet our requirements. The NIT arranged an international group of professors for us who are collaborating closely with our management on designing the individual modules. We wanted a custom designed program that was different than the conventional solution, and that is what we now have. The NIT has always been open, creative and flexible."
Prof. Matthias Meyer about the success of the program:
"An important factor for the success of our program is the close interchange and the different perspectives that tesa, the NIT, and me as the Academic Coordinator contribute to the project. The program and with it the customers thus benefit from a great deal of experience and expertise in program design, the choice of suitable professors, and the further development of the program."
