The outstanding quality of our learning concept was recently confirmed by the Financial Times Global MBA ranking 2018, which ranked us as the best German business school for career services, program internationality, and student satisfaction.

With the 12-month Full-Time MBA Program, offering both September and April intakes, you can immerse yourself in an intensive learning experience and quickly reap the benefits of your new knowledge and skills.

Before starting the program, you will have the opportunity to attend online preparation courses to refresh your knowledge of mathematics and statistics and learn the basics of economics.

In cooperation with the Goethe Institute Düsseldorf, WHU offers optional intensive German language courses in order to enhance your profile for the German job market. Students may choose between four, eight, and twelve-week courses.  We ask you to please submit your completed MBA application three months prior to the start of the respective German course*.

WHU partially sponsors (50%) the cost of the language course. The remaining cost (500€ per month) must be covered by the student. 

If you would like more information, please contact the admissions team.

*The courses are planned for January-March (spring intake) and June-August (fall intake)

The first five months of the program comprise mandatory core modules that provide a solid foundation in basic management concepts and core organizational functions.

  1. Understanding Financial Performance (Managerial Finance, Financial Accounting, The World Economy)
  2. Exploiting Market Opportunities (Marketing, Corporate Finance, Economics of Corporate and Competitive Strategy)
  3. Managing in the Organization (Operations Management, Strategic Sourcing, Management Accounting)

These are advanced courses that provide you deeper insights on Strategy and Organization, Marketing & Sales, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and Advanced Finance and build on the knowledge obtained in the core modules.

The MBA programs include three study-abroad weeks, two in Asia and one in the US. The Asia modules, which take place in China and India, focus on the chances, challenges, and risks of doing business in emerging markets. Senior faculty members of the following renowned partner schools deliver specialist lectures covering sensitive issues relating to the local business environments:

India:
Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore, India
China Europe International Business School, Shanghai, China

China:
Fudan University, Shanghai, China

The modules includes visits to traditional local companies and innovation hubs, foreign companies, and joint ventures, providing you with a comprehensive understanding of these emerging markets as well as a practical and real-world perspective.

The US module is a tailor-made executive education program in partnership with the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University, Evanston (near Chicago), USA, one of the leading business schools in the US. Kellogg’s top faculty members provide expert insight into management education’s latest hot topics.

A variety of engaging Management Practice Workshops supplement the program’s thorough academic curriculum. The workshops focus on current key business practices and are taught by experts and coaches in the respective areas.

Students embark on a personal development journey throughout the duration of the MBA, with all aspects of their education designed to help them better know themselves as well as learn how to lead and be led. Group work, reflections, and leadership challenges help students excel beyond their current boundaries and provide ample opportunities to sharpen their interpersonal and communication skills. This module is integrated into all aspects of the curriculum.

The Final MBA Project can take the form of a business-plan, research paper, or report written in cooperation with a company while completing an internship. Completed either individually or as a group, the result should demonstrate an ability to focus on solving a problem by applying the research methods and management knowledge acquired throughout the MBA. The project is supervised by a faculty member and is typically completed during the elective phase of the program. In the case of a company-related project and internship, the final project takes place only after all modules have been completed.

WHU offers German courses for several proficiency levels throughout the program for no additional cost.
