"Every Monday, I’m motivated to return to work and try out new learnings from the weekend classes. To me, the program perfectly combines high-level academic education with a great family spirit that makes learning from others and being inspired by individuals easy and meaningful."
"WHU's Part-Time MBA Program offers the possibility, not only, to encounter new areas of expertise, but to do so in a very flexible and rewarding way - namely during weekends. In addition to the standard MBA lectures, WHU is leading the way by offering great personal and leadership development modules.
The greatest value of the MBA is the people one studies with... WHU certainly selects great candidates."
“Combining WHU’s Part-Time MBA Program with my second parental leave has been a great decision, as I filled the ‘career break’ by furthering my education. While taking care of the kids during the day, I could use the evenings to study. Although I had to fly in from Munich for the weekends, it was never a problem to attend classes: my husband took care of the kids and WHU was very supportive regarding unforeseen organizational issues. Regarding my career, the MBA did not only push it forward by offering me a second degree, but also enabled me to gain in-depth knowledge which I could immediately apply at work. Additionally, I built a strong network within the WHU community and gained friends for life.”
"380 minutes of travel through the picturesque landscape of Stuttgart, Frankfurt & Dusseldorf, 270 Minutes of Lecture from the Charismatic Professors who challenge us with the problems engulfing the current business, 90 minutes of intense case work with a diverse group of people, 60 minutes of lunch break to catch up with my fellow peers is how my Saturdays have been during the Part-Time MBA Program. And with this experience I should definitely say that my benefits have far more outweighed its cost!"
"The knowledge that I acquired during WHU's Part-Time MBA Program expanded my horizon and provided me with critical management tools that I am actively using in my day-to-day business. The WHU program has enhanced my abilities with regards to international business, competitive environment across various industries, and understanding of every aspect of a business.
My main motivation to start an MBA program was to catch-up with the new developments as the world grows so fast. WHU is a great place to fulfill my motivation in terms of gathering information on the latest developments in the business environment and getting updated with the latest management frameworks. Besides the in-class lectures, the real life case studies we did gave me an excellent perspective. I have only worked for one company so far, Metro Group which is operating in retail/wholesale industry and my know-how from other industries was very limited. During the MBA program I got the chance to learn about other industries' - from technology companies to manufacturing, pharmaceuticals to private equity companies - and their business models which was a very valuable learning for me."
"The Part-Time MBA at WHU was a great opportunity to not only further develop my academic knowledge during the lectures, but also drive forward my professional skills throughout my day-to-day business activities within the consulting company I was working for. Moreover it was extremely satisfying to mirror my professional experience with the experiences of my class-mates as well as with the content of the lectures. Furthermore, the lectures were very often opened by expert speakers from different backgrounds, such as media and business representatives which gave me vivid insights into various professional fields.
A true highlight of the program were the academic trips to New York, Shanghai and Bangalore - being there together with a group of highly motivated class mates, meeting individuals, local as well as international corporations was truly amazing. I can profoundly state that the decision to join WHU was extremely valuable to me and opened up the opportunity for me to now change job."
"The Part-Time MBA Program at WHU provided me with the opportunity to enhance my theoretical knowledge and personal skills while at the same time allowing me to continue gathering practical experience at work.
The highly motivated and experienced professors managed to convey the key concepts of the course material while at the same time represented the full breadth and depth of their respective fields. Furthermore, they gave helpful feedback on one's personal approach in structuring, solving and presenting cases.
Besides new skills we did benefit from a fantastic group composition that brought together expertise from various backgrounds creating a valuable learning environment and a strong network."
