Degree programme

The Berlin MBA has been developed for ambitious executives who are keen to address the challenges of responsible management in a global context. The core modules teach basic general management skills - such as marketing, HR, strategy, finance and accounting. The seminars are enriched by the diversity of our students with their different professional experience and backgrounds. Interdisciplinary approaches to problem-solving are formulated, while cross-sector and interdepartmental thinking is developed. You can pursue your individual interests and professional focal points in a variety of ways: when selecting your elective modules, during integrated study visits or when writing your final Master's thesis.
