Grounding in Business Fundamentals.
The Business Fundamentals ensure that all students have the same level of knowledge before starting with the core modules. It allows you to comprehensively refresh or update your knowledge in the subjects General Management, Management Accounting, Cost Accounting, Economics, Business Mathematics and Statistics.

Applying on-campus/off-campus work.
The didactic design of our EMBA program consists of pre-, core- and post-module work to ensure an efficient transfer of knowledge. This requires preparation before each module (i.e. case studies and/or readings), intense face-to-face interaction and discussion in the classroom during the modules (i.e. student-faculty interaction, peer learning) and reflective post-processing (i.e. home assignments) after each module to maximize your learning experience.

Launching career - academic completion.
The academic degree of Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA)
is awarded after successful completion of the core modules, the specialization
modules and approval of the master's thesis.
