The planning, management and development of social projects is becoming increasingly important in a constantly modernising society. This is why business administration and economics know-how, which is the focus of the IU's Master's programme in Social Work, is particularly in demand. However, specialisations such as early childhood education and learning or clinical social work and health promotion also prepare you optimally for exciting management tasks. You study 100% online for maximum flexibility. This leaves more time for social projects.
