Description of the programme
MBA studies for a broad target group
The master's programme is non-consecutive. This means that after a first university degree, at least two years of professional experience are required before starting the MBA programme. The advantage of the MBA programme is that it can be built on various first university degrees. Thus, it is aimed at professionals from many sectors and with different educational backgrounds and professional experience. The offer also appeals to companies that are looking for qualification opportunities for their employees.
The further training programme combines the classic contents of a management degree with a stronger international orientation as well as elements of personal development and the development of leadership skills. Students acquire a wide range of skills with which they can act confidently in both national and international business. They develop an understanding of complex interrelationships and are able to make more targeted decisions and solve problems on this basis.
International and practice-oriented
The international focus is not only ensured by courses such as Intercultural Aspects and Experience, International Business Environment or Corporate and International Finance. Some of the courses are taught in English. The study programme also includes two excursions to China and Vietnam.
Why enrolling in this programme?
Combination of theory and practice gives you a head start in your career
In the dual bachelor's programme at the FHDW, students alternate between university and company on a quarterly basis. During their studies, both sides can ‘get to know each other’ and see if they harmonise. This lays the foundation for successful co-operation at an early stage.
The part-time bachelor's and master's programme combine a full-time job with the study programme. This means that the study content can be used directly at the workplace and it is not necessary to leave the job.
Small groups promote personal contacts
Studying at the FHDW means: no overcrowded lecture halls and no impersonal meetings. The FHDW knows its students. The study groups are only ever as large as a class: a maximum of 36 students.
Perfect organisation saves time
Students do not have to worry about the sequence and organisation of their studies. The study programmes at the FHDW are perfectly organised and coordinated. The part-time bachelor's programmes take into account the NRW school holidays.
