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).

Option to specialise

If you pass the optional taught units plus a dissertation in a particular area of specialism you will graduate with one of the following combinations:
-MSc in Management with Finance
-MSc in Management with Marketing
-MSc in Management with Operations Management
-MSc in Management with Corporate Social Responsibility
-MSc in Management with Human Resource Management

General route

If you choose options which result in you not having studied three courses from a particular specialism, or if the dissertation is in a different subject from the optional course taken, you will graduate with an MSc in Management.

Summer period

During the summer period you will be able to choose between two tracks: (1) dissertation track and (2) practice track.
Both tracks allow you to demonstrate critical insight and reflective thinking about business/management/policy issues. The tracks also help develop your written and presentation skills, and your ability to develop effective arguments. All of these attributes are transferable skills relevant to the workplace and your future career.

Dissertation track

The dissertation track gives you the opportunity to do a piece of substantial work on your own, demonstrating originality, innovation, drive, and determination. The dissertation also enables you to plan and execute your own project, giving you complete choice and flexibility.

Practice track

The practice track allows you to undertake a number of tasks, both working in teams with other members of your cohort and working individually. The practice track is designed to allow you to apply learned concepts and theories to practical problems and issues, including a management problem which will be presented to you by an organisation. This track also provides opportunities for gaining practical experience in running team projects.

Unilever to present Case Week Project

The world-leading fast-moving consumer goods company, Unilever, represented by Tony Dunnage, Group Environmental Manager for Unilever, will present a business problem to practice track students on 15 June as part of Case Week.

You will then have two weeks to propose your own solutions to the problem, using the skills and knowledge gained during the programme, under guidance from your supervisors. The week will culminate with poster presentations to Unilever on 26 June.

Units are taught by the Faculty of Information Technology.

Law and responsible business

The fortunes of a business can quickly turn around if it does not pay proper attention to the laws that regulate its organisation and activities. The law provides the framework for all aspects of business from the internal management of business organisations to their relationships with clients, consumers and the public. The units in this specialisation provide students with an understanding of the legal framework within which business operates and the fundamental laws that regulate business activities and transactions, with particular emphasis on how legal and social responsibility considerations should impact business decision-making.

Marketing

Marketing is a fun, dynamic, complex activity (and discipline) that focuses on providing value to both organisations and consumers. Very simply, marketing is about matching what an organisation has (or can do) with someone who wants it. Marketing is about selling, it is about advertising, but it also so much more. The study and practice of the 'so much more' is what makes marketing so interesting!

In today's dynamic and global business environment, marketing permeates all areas of operations and forms an integral element of business growth and achievement. Highly qualified, innovative and international marketing practitioners, supported by well researched and pertinent marketing knowledge, are increasingly in demand.

Quantitative business analysis

Students will be provided with advanced quantitative skills required to carry out statistical analysis in business, economics and finance. They will also develop skills to report on the findings of their quantitative analysis.

Risk management

Risk is defined by AS/NZS ISO 31000: 2009 as 'the effect of uncertainty on objectives'. The management of risk is an evolving discipline that builds on current knowledge in a diverse range of activities. The risk management specialisation focuses on operational and financial risk in today's commercial world.
