MBA International Management Part-Time

“A career in internationally operating companies requires managers from engineering professions also to have knowledge of business methods. The MBA course at ESB Business School prepares people for management responsibilities in a globalised world.”

Prof. Dr. Dennis A. De, professor for economics and entrepreneurship

Why study MBA International Management Part-Time?

…because as a (junior) manager you will obtain the right qualifications for a management responsibility: Particularly if you are an engineer, natural scientist, physician, lawyer, social scientist or humanist you acquire sound and broad knowledge and skills in General Management and Marketing.

... because the degree programme can be perfectly combined with professional life: The attendance phases are scheduled at weekends. Since the classes are in block modules you can work on successive subject areas in a focused manner that is time-manageable. 

… because you are prepared for a globalised working environment: Internationally focused teaching content and an integrated module abroad expand your international and intercultural skills
