The programme office: service at a single location
All the students enjoy the convenience of the extensive services provided by a dedicated programme office. With support provision beginning before your arrival, this continues throughout the duration of your studies and thanks to our alumni network for the rest of your working life.
The regular duration of the course is three semesters. The first two semesters consist of seminars, lectures, projects and excursions, instructed and guided by HTW professors and external lecturers. The Masters thesis is written during the third semester. A single-semester internship is possible but not compulsory. The language of instruction is English
The MBA&E programme of excursions is an integral part of the course. Throughout the two study semesters, the students have the opportunity to visit a number of multinational companies and professional events in Germany and possibly abroad. Travel and accommodation are included in the tuition fees. The excursions are organized and led by the MBA&E programme manager.
Teamwork and communication skills
Students of the course are given the opportunity to develop the crucial skills involved in modern business practice in a working-by-doing manner, learning to navigate challenging assignments in a variety of team settings. The course imparts the whole range of effective collaboration, communication, presentation and argumentation skills required by the modern business environment.
Students have the opportunity to complete a full-time internship during the third semester, postponing completion of their Masters thesis to the fourth semester. We encourage international students to complete an internship in Germany as a part of their studies. The MBA&E programme office provides assistance both in finding a work placement and during its course.
The MBA&E is accredited by the Accreditation, Certification and Quality Assurance Institute ACQUIN. The ACQUIN is a German organization that accredits both national and international degree programs. It operates under German state supervision and is a member of the ENQA (European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education), the EUA (European University Association) and the INQAAHE (International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education).
