The Munich MBA - MBA International Management (full-time)

The programme targets international candidates with a non-business degree but offers enough depth for business degree holders seeking to further refine and strengthen their education. Students may select two of four elective courses, an international focus (Germany and Europe, Latin America, or China) as well as an international or practical immersion in Term 3, choosing from the following options:

•   Internship + 1 International Week or
•   Study abroad

This approach allows students to enhance knowledge regarding a specific country or organisation before demonstrating their acquired skills with their Master Thesis.
