Structure of the MBA

Both the full-time course and the part-time course consist of five modules and the master’s thesis. The full-time MBA is taught in person on campus and takes 1 year to complete.

The part-time MBA takes 1.5 years to complete and will be delivered in a hybrid study mode, with each of the five modules divided into three distinct parts:

  • Self-study: In the first four weeks of each module, students prepare for virtual classes by studying documents online and completing assignments.
  • Virtual classroom: In the next six weeks, students participate in online classes.
  • On-Campus Seminar – Every 10 weeks, students attend a 2-day seminar on campus and take the final module exam on-site. The seminar can be held at different campus locations (Berlin, Hamburg or Iserlohn) from module to module, students will be informed in advance.

The modules are independent of each other, allowing flexible startup. Therefore, the part-time course is suitable for those who need to balance it with their professional and personal life.


The MBA consists of the following modules:

  • Client environment
  • Innovation management
  • Strategic vision
  • Resources
  • Leadership management
  • Thesis

Tuition and funding fees

All costs are included in the monthly tuition.

No additional costs such as tuition fees, exam fees, bachelor thesis fees or the like will be incurred as long as the course is completed within the standard study period.

The costs of the semester abroad are not included in these fees, since there are substantial differences depending on the country and the university.
