MBA International Management für Offiziere

Sebastian Dominik Kusch

“Even if you already have a first degree in business management I can only recommend the MBA for Officers. Its high practical relevance imparted in case studies and by good lecturers, classes taught in English as well as the generic approach of the course proves to be very valuable in my current position in the Lease Department of H&M.”

Sebastian Dominik Kusch, H & M Hennes & Mauritz B.V. & Co. KG, graduated with MBA International Management for Officers in 2012

Why study MBA International Management für Offiziere?

... because it is the only MBA programme that has been set up specifically for officers and their situation and is therefore adapted to officers and not vice versa.

... because on the way to a civilian career in international management it closes the gap with respect to content between your first degree and the challenges of the civilian economy.

... because it adapts to the time demands and vagaries of military service.
