Program Structure of the MBA Program

The MBA program (full-time and part-time) is an internationally oriented general management program that provides students from different industries and professions with the expertise to understand the interdisciplinary relationships of a company and to make sustainable strategic decisions using the latest management techniques. The MBA program can be completed in two different time structures: Full-Time in 12 months or Part-Time (weekend classes) in 24 months.

The MBA Program aims at qualifying participants to strategically lead companies. The curriculum emphasizes management concepts which foster strategic vision, entrepreneurial spirit, operational excellence, and intercultural awareness. Participants learn to identify complex interdependencies and leverage the knowledge of peers for the advantage of the entire company. Due to the global perspective, 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. Small course sizes ensure an interdisciplinary and communicative learning environment as well as excellent mentoring between professors and students.

Moreover, there is a special focus on Leadership and Personal Development throughout the program. Enhancing the participants' soft skills is of high significance for us. It is our indisputable goal to create a mind-set that features responsibility towards the social and environmental consequences of managerial decisions. With this the students will be skilled to take over strategic management functions within their organizations.

The program is taught by senior members of the WHU faculty. During the program's international module courses are taught by the faculty of hosting partner universities.

The Program is both FIBAA- and EQUIS-accredited and has also been awarded the prestigious AACSB accreditation.
