... that you will get to know people from all over the world sharing one classroom with you: 84% of our graduates 2013 were coming from abroad and 16% from Germany.

So all in all 81% of our graduates successfully achieved a career change.

What most of our international candidates intrigues about studying for an MBA in Germany and in Berlin is the opportunity to work for a company in Germany after graduation. Of our international graduates 2013 59% achieved this goal.
And here are some examples of career change/career transitions:

One of our graduates from Spain who was working as a research analyst is now working as a Regional Manager for a start-up company in Berlin. A project engineer from Greece is now working as a consultant for a company in the renewable energy area in Berlin. A journalist and researcher from the US joined a start-up company in Berlin as Communications & Marketing Manager. An IT Analyst from Russia became Head of Office IT in Berlin.

MBA in Transatlantic Management

Be a part of the global study world

The Berlin full-time MBA in Transatlantic Management prepares for leadership or consulting roles in companies or organisations which operate in a transatlantic context. The pathway course content will focus on general international management issues with a particular focus on transatlantic issues. Students will learn about topics such as the North American Free Trade Agreement and the European Union and their implications for cross-border trade and foreign direct investment.

Certain forms of market entry such as licensing/franchising will receive particular attention. Important variations in business law and corporate governance standards on both sides of the Atlantic will be examined. Differences in business culture and general business practices in American and European companies will be elucidated.

The primary focus is on finding viable and feasible management solutions in real-life situations confronting cross-boarder-aware businesses and organisations.

To realise this goal effectively, business theory is always linked to best practices and placed in an intercultural context – a process that underscores how business activities are located within a social surround where overall economic and social factors play their part.
