Programme overview

Our MBA online learning programme is characterised by a focus on real-world orientation and follows the Equal MBA Guidelines – internationally recognised guidelines for the quality assurance of MBA programmes worldwide. It provides you with all the business knowledge and skills you will need as a future manager in national and international companies. You will acquire sound know-how in the areas of strategy and leadership, organisations and types of organisations, the framework conditions of management, as well as management theories and tools. Based on decision-making theories, you will develop qualitative as well as quantitative strategies for identifying management problems and working out effective approaches to solving them. Through the regular inclusion of international case studies (including Harvard Business Cases), the theory-practice relationship is reinforced and discussed in a global context.

After graduation, you will be able to evaluate decisions responsibly and to critically reflect on your professional actions in relation to intercultural-societal expectations and consequences. Within the framework of a broad elective area, you will also have the opportunity to specialise in many exciting areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Digital Business Models or creative working methods.

Careers

Your career prospects with an MBA degree

With our MBA online learning programme, you will acquire all the qualifications for your entry into top management positions.

Business Development Manager

In times of change, as a business development manager, you need to have a feel for changes and trends. You analyse developments and markets and develop new products and business ideas on this basis. To do this, you bring sound knowledge in the areas of finance, economics, and law to the right place.

Consultant

As a consultant, you advise other companies. The subject of the consultancy can be, for example, the management or the handling of a change process. You have to adapt your basic consulting concept individually to the expectations of your client without neglecting the goals of your employer.

Senior Brand Manager

As a brand manager, your job is to strategically develop, position, and coordinate the brand or image of a company so that it has a high recognition value and stands out from other companies in the competition. Your tasks, therefore, include cross-product strategic planning by means of effective external communication. In the course of this, as a brand manager you design innovative, cross-channel media campaigns that are implemented, analysed, and optimised nationally and internationally.

Tuition fees

Study model and prices for the MBA

Depending on your personal or professional situation, full-time study is not always easy to manage. That’s why we have also developed part-time programmes for all our degrees, which offer flexible and longer study periods. This way, you can study alongside your job or during your time off, whether at home or abroad. The different models are identical in terms of content. Depending on the study model, we adjust your tuition fees accordingly. With the part-time variants, your weekly study workload is reduced 

If you can’t complete your degree in the allotted time, no problem! We will develop the right study model for everyone. If you realise that you need more time, you can easily switch to another time model with three months’ notice before the end of the month. These are our different study models:
