Participating in the program means that you finish your graduate studies with 2 degrees in only one year: An MBA from Bremen, plus another degree depending on your choice of the partner university.

It also means that you live in two different countries and study with a highly diverse student body. The first semester always consists of core modules. You can either study the core modules in Bremen, Germany and choose 1 out of 6 partner business specializations. Or set up your dual degree another way around: Specialize in Logistics and Supply Chain Management and start at one of our partner universities. In the 3rd term you will write your master thesis about your specialization topic.

The International Double Degree - Master of Business Administration is delivered by Hochschule Bremen - International Graduate Center
