Part-Time Studies

The part-time professional Master’s program in business administration allows professionals to complete an academic program with the internationally recognized "Master of Business Administration or MBA" degree while working. The program is directed at persons who require knowledge of  decision-oriented business administration due to their professional situation or career planning. Qualifications acquired in a part-time professional program can be partly applied to the program.

Module program

Students can also take individual modules from the academic program. When students pass the module test, they will automatically receive the corresponding number of credits. They will be recognized as partial qualification if they decide to become full-time students later on. The module program thus allows people to begin studies gradually or to continue their studies gradually by collecting credits.

Curriculum and Examination Regulations

The program imparts well-founded business administration knowledge to persons who are increasingly given business administration-related management responsibilities. This includes in particular:

  • Models of business and economy
  • Business administration-related methodical subjects, such as strategic and operative planning, investment and decision-making, organization, and controlling
  • Transfer-oriented methods, such as projects, computer-based simulations, and best practice examples
  • Core curriculum subjects, such as history and economic theory
  • Guest lectures by experts from the business world

Participants who did not study business administration but have business administration-related professional responsibilities can take advantage of the bridging courses offered if necessary.

The [study and examination regulations]* form the legal basis for the study program. The  [module manual]* provides information about the content of the individual modules. Contact your academic advisor  Prof. Dr. Felix Weispfenning concerning the content of the program.
