The general management degree for the top managers of tomorrow: During the MBA degree course from FOM University you will acquire all-round expertise in all of the most important corporate functions – in a way that is hands-on, forward-looking and with reference to international correlations.

This degree course, which is held primarily in English, provides both business expertise as well as extensive intercultural and management skills. For example, you will acquire in-depth knowledge in disciplines such as marketing and communication, human resources and leadership management as well as international business law. In all modules there is a focus on digitisation and the influence it has on the respective functional areas. From the third semester you will select your preferred area of specialisation – a wide range of specialised subjects provides you with a degree course that perfectly matches the requirements of your daily professional activities.

Holistic teaching concept, which is close to the real world

The core goal of the MBA degree is the development of integrative, practise-oriented thinking and action. Real case studies from the world of business and a lively mix of teaching methods help to sharpen your overall, interdisciplinary perspective. Thus, you will gain important knowledge that will allow you to maintain an overview of all operational processes when making decisions.

You will also benefit from the continual exchange of information and experiences with other students from a wide range of sectors and specialist areas. You will learn to assert yourself in interdisciplinary teams, take responsibility, manage negotiations and ultimately implement well-founded and constructive measures. A voluntary coaching programme, which runs alongside the degree course, can also support you with your own personal development.

What are the characteristics of a strong manager nowadays?

As an MBA graduate, you will be able to answer this important question thanks to the innovative teaching concept. After completing the degree course you will be able to take over management activities in international companies, develop global strategies and optimise group-wide processes. The MBA from FOM University can also prepare you optimally for the takeover or founding of a company.

You will complete your master studies in Business Administration with the academic degree of Master of Business Administration (MBA).
