The MBA General Management is a highly flexible MBA program that can be completed in either full-time or part-time format. While forming a core group with your fellow part-time MBA students, you will also enjoy joint classes with full-time MBA students. This provides you with the opportunity to study in an even more diverse environment, and enables you to expand your business and career network even further.
The MBA curriculum is based on three pillars: Expert Business Knowledge courses provide you with a strong foundation of expertise in core business and management areas. By selecting 2 out of 4 elective courses, you further deepen your knowledge in these particular fields. The MBS Flagship Course is comprised of a one-of-a-kind combination of courses based on Munich Business School’s core values – making the MBA General Management a truly unique experience. An International Week at SDA Bocconi in Milan, Italy, and an MBS Startup Week round off the MBS Flagship Module. Executive Skills courses are aimed to support you in your personality and leadership development, and provide you with all the necessary information to start, or continue, your professional career in Germany, or other parts of Europe.

The MBA International Management (MBA IM) is divided into three terms over a period of 15 months. Each term covers topics from the three major modules Business & Management Knowledge, Executive & Leadership Skills, and International Business Environment. This effective modular structure is the basis for a challenging and compact MBA program, which allows its completion in less than one and a half years – thus minimizing the time our students spend putting their professional careers on hold.
In order to prepare for future leadership tasks, and to focus on their personal development, MBA students are given the opportunity to intensively deal with their personal understanding of leadership. They draw up a personal development plan, and thus work specifically towards the fulfilment of their individual, interdisciplinary competence and qualification goals.
MBA students are also offered professional business coaching sessions, and the opportunity to participate in selected offers from Munich Business School’s Executive Development program. In this way, tailor-made personality development is promoted, and students are equipped with important “future skills”.
Besides the imparting of general management knowledge and skills, the MBA General Management full-time also covers a number of electives providing a deeper understanding of a particular field. During your studies, you combine two of four elective courses, selecting one specialized course per term. Choices are "Business in Germany" and "Global Supply Chain Management" in term 1 (September-December), and "Management in Emerging Markets" and "Business Law" in term 2 (February-May).
Though basic business principles apply everywhere, every international market is shaped by its own political, cultural, and historical landscapes. A good share of your course work is therefore dedicated to exploring international markets, international business methods, and specific economies that are currently impacting global business.
You may choose one out of three international focuses:
In addition, you may improve your foreign language skills by participating in an optional language class, choosing between German, Spanish, and Chinese.
