In 2006, a new and innovative funding program has been developed by Brain Capital: the Generation Contract. Students who have been offered admission to one of the WHU Master of Science Programs and who need financial support or wish to finance their graduate studies on their own, may apply for this funding. The Generation Contract enables students to concentrate on their studies without worrying about the financial aspects. The repayment depends on gross income once the students start their professional life; there is a minimum and a maximum amount of the repayment. Therefore, the final tuition fees are proportional to the achievements in the jobs. Participation in the Generation Contract is also available for qualified MSc students from non-EU countries.
WHU offers a low-interest loan program with Sparkasse Koblenz, which is available for German-speaking WHU students without special collateral requirements.
