Structure of the MBA

Show more

Both the full-time course and the part-time course consist of five modules and the Master’s thesis. The full-time MBA is delivered face-to-face on campus and takes 1 year to be completed.

The part-time MBA takes 1.5 years to be completed and will be delivered in a hybrid study mode, with each of the five modules divided into three distinct parts:

  • Self-study: In the first four weeks of each module, the students prepare for the virtual classes by studying online documents and completing tasks.
  • Virtual classroom: In the following six weeks, students participate in online classes.
  • On-campus seminar: Every 10 weeks, students attend a 2-day seminar on campus and take the final module exam on site. The seminar may be held in different campus locations (Berlin, Hamburg, or Iserlohn) from one module to another, students will be informed in advance.

The modules are independent from each other, which allows for a flexible start. The part-time course is therefore suited for those who need to balance it with their professional and personal lives.
