MBA International Management. For Military Officers and Professionals.

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?

... because it is the only MBA programme that is based on the situation of officers and is therefore adapted to officers and not vice versa.

... because on the way to a civilian career in international management it closes the gaps regarding content between the first degree and the challenges of the civilian economy.

... because it is adapted in terms of time to the demands and uncertainties of military service or a different profession.
