The addition of another semester to the undergraduate courses offered in StudiumPlus from the 2017-18 autumn semester (from six to seven semesters), will also affect changes to the coop programme's postgraduate courses. The Hessian Higher Education Act requires that, taken together, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes shall comprise no more than five years (ten semesters). For this reason, from the 2021-22 autumn semester, the duration of study for the postgraduate courses will be reduced by one semester (from four to three semesters). The next course will begin in the 2021 spring semester. Relevant transitional provisions will be made to ensure a seamless transition for both graduates of the three-year undergraduate courses (180 credit points) and graduates of courses lasting three and a half years (210 credit points) who want to begin the relevant postgraduate course.

In the postgraduate course in Process Management students acquire theoretical knowledge and develop practical skills relevant for internal and external company processes. This kind of expertise is especially important for medium-sized businesses that want to generate innovation in order to grow. Successful process managers know how to improve complex operating procedures in companies, and how to optimize the value-added chain and develop efficient business plans. StudiumPlus offers the postgraduate course in Process Management with the following specializations: business process control and technical processes.

The course modules are structured in block modules, which means that lectures at THM lasting the entire day are held two or three times every other week (a total of six days per month). Students alternate between learning venues at the university and the work placement, where they work on projects as part of the course.
