Our Teaching Approach
The Pforzheim MBA follows a two-tier strategy that will provide our students with distinct competitive advantages for the business of tomorrow: an international, generalist and profound classical management education is integrated with the most relevant future topics: Innovation Management and Sustainable Globalization.
We focus on the quality of participants, their cultural empathy and their willingness to perform, not on profits. The small course size of 20-25 students allows individual career advancement.
Our curriculum combines a mixture of individual study work and team assignments. What you will need to lead a future business is practical knowledge. Therefore, through company projects, we integrate state-of-the-art theory with case studies and real-life questions by companies from the surrounding area. All of our faculty have worked at least 5 years in senior management positions. Additionally, we give you insight into more than 30 companies throughout your studies.
After a semester of foundation courses, business graduates join for a semester on management skills before the individualization through a variety of electives in the third semester. We want you to get in touch with the industry, so the fourth semester gives you the opportunity to join a company to write your thesis. At the time of graduation, you will be well prepared for the German labour market!
