Order of study

Order of study: MBA Online · 90 ECTS

Our online Master of Business Administration degree is a modular programme, which means that your courses are organised into subject areas, so called "modules".

In the first semester, the Leadership module covers methods and techniques for managing and motivating employees. You will gain insights into innovation and leadership. This is followed by International Marketing, Finance Management as well as the module Performance Measurement. The final module in the first semester is Managerial Economics which includes a case study.

The second semester starts off with Strategic Management and Change Management. You receive a profound insight on the challenges of Managing in a Global Economy. In the accelerated 60 ECTS version, you will seclude your studies with a Capstone Project in a subject area of your choice. In the 90 ECTS version, you will choose your first elective specialisation course to get a deeper understanding of a certain functional or industrial area.

The 90 ECTS MBA course continues in the third semester with your second elective specialisation. You will then write your Capstone Project to successfully complete your MBA studies.
