Career paths

MBA studies as a career springboard

"An important part of the MBA program was individual coaching. The potential analysis and the discussions with the coach helped me to recognize my strengths and weaknesses and to work on them in a targeted way." Nadine Roszewicz works on a CRM project for the Key Account Management/Sales department at Schenker AG in Essen. She deliberately chose the MBA in General Management in order to gain an insight into the various areas of the company such as strategy, marketing, finance, and human resources, and thus to be even more broadly positioned for her further professional development.

Lectures are held about once a month from Friday - Sunday. Please be aware that parts of this course will be held in Hong Kong, India, and the USA.
