The program consists of two parts: compulsory courses and writing the graduate thesis. The compulsory coursework is designed like a classical MBA program. A unique advantage of this program is an opportunity to a practical project during the preparation of the graduate thesis. Students can conduct this practical project in their companies. A particular dynamic of this program is achieved through a combination of 50% of lectures and 50% of learning being carried out through group assignments and projects over the online internet learning platform. This unique hybrid approach gives students ample time for professional and family commitments.

In each 8-week mini-semester, students will complete 2 courses. Lectures are held on:

  • Fridays from 17:00 to 21:00 and Saturdays from 9:00 to 13:00 for “course 1”
  • Saturdays from 14:00 to 18:00 for „course 2“

Prospective students

A minimum of 3 years of professional experience is required for all students. Candidates from mid-level and high-level management are desired. The program is well-suited for department heads in state and government institutions and organizations as well as non-profit organizations.
