  • Classes take place about every four weeks in course blocks of 2 to 6 days, including weekends.

  • From our experience the workload can be challenging, but it is doable for a full-time employee. Since course days are devoted to subject-specific input and insights from researchers and practitioners, we ask you to reserve free time for the reading of articles and case studies as well as for the preparation of presentations.

  • The tuition is paid in four installments, which results in € 9,750 per semester plus the student union fees.

  • We currently do not offer scholarships or financial support for our students. We advise our candidates to search online for scholarships or to win their employers’ support for the program.

  • No. We have many international students and appreciate the interculturality they bring to the program.
