The course of study at WHU is characterized mainly by its high internationality. 80 percent of the students who have decided to pursue an MBA at WHU come from abroad to the Düsseldorf campus where the program is taught. “WHU is a business school where great importance is attached to diversity and an open, open-minded view of the world,” Professor Dr. Markus Rudolf, Dean of WHU, observed. “In a learning environment such as this, in addition to the excellent teaching provided by the University, students are an enrichment to one another, thanks to their differing experiences and strengths.”

The high degree of internationality on WHU’s offerings extends even past graduation from the MBA program: In the “International Mobility” category, which reflects the level of internationality for graduates’ entry to the employment market after graduating, WHU occupies a very solid 15th place. “This result confirms that we are doing an outstanding job in training our graduates for the international market. We view this as an accolade and an incentive at the same time,” said Dr. Toni Calabretti, president of the WHU Foundation.

Each year, the Financial Times MBA Ranking rates the top 100 MBA programs in the world. The ranking consists of several categories, including student satisfaction, but it also looks at factors such as post-degree salary trends and the internationality of students and faculty.
