Invest in your Career –

How to finance the Global Online MBA.

Pursuing an MBA can be a substantial investment into your career, but it also requires a financial investment. With flexible financing and payment options, we are committed to helping you explore different financing options to make sure this investment doesn’t stand in the way of your future.

In 2005, Brain Capital GmbH was founded by WHU alumni who had developed a new and innovative funding program, the Reversed Generational Contract. Students from the EU, USA or Canada who have received an admission offer to one of the WHU MBA Programs, may apply for this funding. The Reversed Generational Contract is an income share agreement and enables students to concentrate on their studies without worrying about their financial aspects. The repayment is dependent on the gross income and adapts itself to the financial solvency. Through the income dependent repayments, the alumni support future generations of students.
