The MBA General Management is designed to give its participants an excellent knowledge base in General Management plus two of four elective courses. Read more

Course Description

The MBA General Management is designed to give its participants an excellent knowledge base in General Management plus two of four elective courses. It enhances the students’ individual competencies to be emphatic and highly performing leaders, and provides them with deep insights into international markets and cultures. It equips our students with the right tools to excel further in their careers: rigorous analysis, conceptual thinking, and creative execution. They learn, discuss, and apply general management knowledge and leadership topics in a truly international setting.

Studying at MBS

As with all study programs at Munich Business School (MBS), small and highly diverse workgroups as well as an intimate study and discussion atmosphere create the optimal learning environment. This allows our students to interact closely and collaborate productively with their class mates and lecturers. Current business and management topics in a well-rounded curriculum full of real-life applications are taught by a dedicated faculty using modern teaching methods and an interdisciplinary approach.

Program Structure

The MBA General Management is divided into three terms and time for the Master Thesis over a period of 24 months. The program covers topics from three major General Management modules: Business & Management Knowledge, Executive & Leadership Skills, and International Business Environment.

In addition, students can choose two of four elective courses. Choices are: Management in Emerging Markets or Digital Business Transformation in the Fall term as well as Social Entrepreneurship or Global Supply Chain Management in the Spring term. This effective modular structure is the basis for a challenging yet flexible two-year program allowing for the completion of the MBA degree without having to put professional careers on hold. Two International Weeks at SDA Bocconi in Milan and Singapore Management University offer further insights into European and Asian business environments and help enhance the students‘ international networks.

With their Master Thesis, MBA General Management students demonstrate a profound understanding of current business topics and the ability to apply specific scientific methods to a realworld business situation.

Delivery Mode

As a real part-time program, all courses of the MBA General Management are held bi-weekly on Friday afternoons and Saturdays, thus ensuring that our students‘ careers actually benefit from their choice to study – not suffer from it. Each term begins with a so-called Intensive Week, kick-starting the program with a whole week of courses and seminars.

A Typical MBA Class at MBS

When carefully selecting the candidates for our MBA General Management program, we pay very close attention to putting together a diverse yet cohesive group of students. Be it through their academic backgrounds, their personal experiences or their professional paths – we want to create the best possible opportunities for our MBA students in terms of networking potential and mutual enrichment. Here are some numbers of the MBA General Management class of 2014/2015:

Average age: 33 years
International / German: 45% / 55%
Average Work Experience: 11 years
Female / Male: 38% / 62%
Academic Background: Engineering/IT - 29%, Business - 25%, other - 46%

Accreditations

The MBA General Management program is – like all study programs at Munich Business School – internationally accredited by FIBAA (Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation). As Bavaria‘s first and so far only private university, MBS has received unlimited state accreditation by the Bavarian State Ministry and institutional accreditation by the German Council of Science and Humanities (Wissenschaftsrat).

The General Management MBA Program is your kick-off to a career in business! The successful MBA Program is conducted by TU Wien in cooperation with Danube University Krems. While Danube University Krems offers ten years' experience in post-graduate management education, TU Wien provides special expertise in business education for engineering and natural science majors.

Contents
The first-year program focuses on teaching economic basic knowledge and on processes and tools of general management:

Accounting & Controlling
Management Science
Organizational Behavior & Human Resource Management
Marketing & Competition Strategy
Corporate Finance
European and International Business Law
Managerial Economics
Communication Skills & Social Competence
The third semester can be continued either in a part-time program in Vienna and Krems, or the studies can be carried out full time at a renowned partner university abroad, e.g. at the Baruch College at City University of New York. The MBA program also offers the possibility of participating in up to three international field studies (e.g. Hong Kong, Vancouver, Colorado or Silicon Valley).

The fourth semester is dedicated to writing a practice-oriented master thesis.

Target Group
For most recent graduates, leadership and assuming management responsibilities are goals and challenges at the same time. Executives in general management positions are responsible for budgets; they must understand competition, organizational issues and human resources - all of which requires sound business education in addition to professional studies. The General Management MBA program offers the possibility of acquiring basic business, legal and social knowledge while preparing for a career in management.
