With the WHU Part-Time MBA!

Diversity is an important aspect of our MBA program. It enriches the experience in the classroom and makes each cohort unique. Therefore, we encourage students from various cultural and professional backgrounds to submit their application. We consider all aspects of your application, not just grades or test scores. This holistic approach allows you to bring all aspects of your personality to the admission process and to showcase your unique potential.

    Final application deadline: July 15.

    While we accept applications throughout the year, we recommend that you apply as early as possible, since we only offer a limited number of study places.
