At our campus in Vallendar we offer a choice of three Master programs - Master in Management, Master in Entrepreneurship, or Master in Finance - with the option to combine courses from all three. This way, we ensure that a Master from WHU will make you stand out from the crowd.

Internationality is key to the WHU experience. With a unique network of more than 200 partner universities across six continents, a Master at WHU offers the perfect educational ecosystem for broadening your perspectives and expanding your knowledge of business, economies, and cultures worldwide.

Through our study abroad module, capstone module, and double degree options, Master students can familiarize themselves with studying and working with international students, faculty, and staff.

The Double Degree Program is particularly unique to Master students at WHU, offering the possibility to gain a full degree from a selected partner university, alongside the MSc degree from WHU.
