The Full-Time MBA Program aims at qualifying participants for the strategic leadership of companies. The curriculum emphasizes management concepts which foster strategic vision, entrepreneurial spirit, operational excellence, and awareness of cultural differences. Participants learn to identify complex interdependencies and to leverage the knowledge of functional specialist colleagues for the advantage of the entire company. Due to the global perspective, a sense for an understanding of cultural differences and how this matters for individual and corporate success is developed.
Teamwork is an essential element of our teaching approach. In study groups of five to six, participants discuss current course content and apply concepts and tools in practically oriented projects.
The program is taught by senior members of the WHU faculty. During the program's international module (we currently cooperate with Kellogg - USA, CEIBS - China and IIMB - India) by the faculty of hosting partner universities.
The Program enjoys the status of a FIBAA- and EQUIS-accredited program. Recently the WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management also earned the AACSB Accreditation. Within re-accreditation for the accreditation period from winter semester 2008/2009 to the end of summer semester 2015, FIBAA awarded the WHU Full-Time MBA the Premium Seal.
