MBA in Entrepreneurship

Course Description

Studying for the Berlin MBA means

... 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. Despite the diversity of our study groups, there is one thing that unites them all and this is the motivation to give their career a different direction. And this is what our graduates 2013 achieved in terms of career change/transition: 50% changed position and industry, 27 % changed position in the same industry and 4% changed position within the same company. 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. A Business Development Manager from Norway moved the career ladder up and is now Director of Business Development in Frankfurt a.M.

MBA in Entrepreneurship

As part of the University’s international General Management programme, the part-time Berlin MBA in Entrepreneurship concentrates on start-up, growth and innovation processes and steering young and small and medium-sized companies. The primary focus is on developing and implementing new ideas to improve competitiveness across all areas of an organisation – irrespective of whether the immediate aim is to launch a new product or strategically restructure an operating division, or even an entire company. The point of reference here also embraces the international context. The programme is designed for those planning a career in executive management or already involved in executive tasks in small and medium-sized companies.

A particular emphasis is placed on developing communicative and social competences. The Leadership Skills seminars, such as Leading Teams, Negotiations or Competence Development (Kode®), on the MBA in Entrepreneurship support your development as a manager with strong leadership qualities.

The lectures and seminars are held in English and German.
