MBA in Entrepreneurship

As part of the University’s international General Management programme, the part-time Berlin MBA in Entrepreneurship concentrates on start-up, growth and innovation processes and steering young and small and medium-sized companies. The primary focus is on developing and implementing new ideas to improve competitiveness across all areas of an organisation – irrespective of whether the immediate aim is to launch a new product or strategically restructure an operating division, or even an entire company. The point of reference here also embraces the international context. The programme is designed for those planning a career in executive management or already involved in executive tasks in small and medium-sized companies.

A particular emphasis is placed on developing communicative and social competences. The Leadership Skills seminars, such as Leading Teams, Negotiations or Competence Development (Kode®), on the MBA in Entrepreneurship support your development as a manager with strong leadership qualities.

The lectures and seminars are held in English and German.
