The International Executive MBA

The IEMBA programme is aimed at executives operating in an international market environment. Taught in English, participants acquire skills and expertise that are now absolutely essential for the management of international companies and doing business in a constantly changing international environment. As well as differing in terms of the language of instruction, teaching staff, and programme and course structure, the place of study for the IEMBA is another difference: two of the modules take IEMBA participants to Los Angeles in the USA and Shanghai and Beijing in China.

IEMBA 5 – Start Autumn 2017

The 18-month IEMBA HSG programme comprises 11 core courses and three elective courses. 70 days of contact time must be completed on campus at the university or one of its partner universities, as well as a further 20 days of preparation and follow-up work. Modules last for one or two weeks. The breaks of several weeks between modules, and the weekends, allow participants time to complete self-study and most importantly fulfil their family and professional commitments.

The Digital Classroom

All participants are equipped with an iPad Pro, giving them access to an app which functions as the programme’s central hub. It provides simple and quick access to all course documents and handouts, presentations, timetables and examination results. The app is also used for elective course registration and administration, as well as contact with programme administration and teaching staff.

Practical Thesis Work

The programme’s strong practical focus is reflected in the thesis element of the degree which requires you to analyse a professional challenge you are currently facing, or develop a business plan for your own company. This allows you to put what you have learned straight into practice and benefits both you and your employer. You also have the opportunity to work on a thesis as part of a team – enabling you to profit directly from the knowledge and experience of your peers.
