    Completed university degree (generally at least a bachelor or equivalent degree) 
    Graduates from foreign universities can be accepted if their degree is recognised by the Studienkolleg Konstanz (preparatory college). (Information of the Studienkolleg Konstanz on foreign university entrance qualifications). Please observe the deadlines of the Studienkolleg Konstanz 
    The degree programme is in principle open to graduates in all subjects. However, an MBA is usually designed primarily for non-economists: particularly graduates in technical or natural science subjects such as engineers, computer scientists, physicians, linguists and humanists as well as lawyers are the priority target group of the degree programme.)

  • At least two years‘ professional experience after completing the first degree, preferably work in a company with technical or business character or equivalent professional experience 

  • Very good German and English language skills 
    The language requirements as well as the valid supporting documents are governed by the languages statutes of Reutlingen University. For English you need to provide evidence of at least B2 level. Evidence of sufficient language skills in German is to be demonstrated, for example, by the TestDAF with at least 14 points, or by the DSH2 test. 

Applicants are deemed particularly suitable if they have already had sufficient professional experience to align their career towards extensive management skills. The course is aimed at managers and high potentials who are operating or wish to operate in international business fields. 

We expect the applicants to have a clear career concept and to be highly motivated.
