The MBA degree

Globally operating businesses are looking for employees with internationally recognized degrees, experience abroad and excellent English language skills, now more than ever. The MBA program offers the ideal platform for that. The MBA degree is awarded by the College of Business of the University of Louisville. The high-ranking college is fully accredited by the American Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

The strongly application-based lectures and exercises are held exclusively in English. In addition to that, the participants complete half of the study period in the U.S. The program therefore does not only improve the students' language skills, but also fosters intercultural exchange.

The study groups are composed of students of different nationalities and with different backgrounds and experience. They are taught by professors from Germany and the United States and by professionals from the world of business, among them Prof. Dr. h. c. mult. Reinhold Würth and Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c.
