The East Asian MBA is an exciting and new initiative from one of the oldest Graduate Centers in Germany. The programme aims to provide students with practice-oriented knowledge for the solution of management tasks in international enterprises and organisations. The curriculum consists of a well-balanced mixture of business and cross-cultural classes, integrating communication skills as well as professional management knowhow. It will also give students the opportunity to gain a basic competence in one of the major languages of the region either Chinese, Hindi, Japanese, or Korean.

The programme is taught entirely in English, inviting both German and international students who want to further develop their international career. Small classes allow for individual tutoring and counseling of each student. The programme is staffed with highly qualified people with an international background, including both experienced practitioners as well as committed academics.

The "MBA - Focus China or Japan" curriculum consists of the following components:

Core courses in International Management, Economics and Quantitative Methods, Cross-Cultural and Human Resource Management, Finance, Operations and Project Management, Law and Taxation.

Mandatory elective courses in area studies and language training either with focus on China, India, Japan, or Korea. Students can choose one country focus upon their application to the programme.

In-depths electives where students can specialise by choosing one of various modules, e.g.: Comparative East Asian Management, Innovation Management, Leadership Challenges, International Logistics, or Global Strategy Analysis.

One module in each semester is developed as a mix of in class and distant learning (blended learning) providing students with the opportunity to finish the course at their own pace.

The language training in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean is organized as a blend of a compact language course at the renowned Bochum University Institute of Intensive Language Training (Landesspracheninstitut NRW) and language courses at the International Graduate Center. Hindi is also taught at the IGC.


The programme addresses persons with a non-economic first-degree, e.g. in engineering, social or natural sciences and at least two years of professional work experience. It will enable participants to fulfil management functions in an international - in particular Asian - context.

Since the programme is primarily for persons with no educational background in management sciences, teaching aims to equip students with management skills and methodical as well as social competencies. It thus qualifies them for further career steps on higher management levels at the interface between Europe/Germany and the Asian markets.

Work Experience

At least 2 year(s) of work experience are required.
