Acquire your MBA title at Cologne Business School in just one year! This is possible with our Fast Track MBA. This form of study is interesting for everybody who on the one hand wishes to learn the typical economics contents of an MBA programme but on the other hand is prepared to do without the extra offers of our classical MBA programmes. Therefore, for example, no specialisation options and also no training courses for the intercultural competences are planned for this form of study. Equally, there is only a limited course offer in the field of Personal Skills. Dependent upon how many credit points the students’ previous degree includes, it is also theoretically possible that the MBA qualification does not provide entitlement to a follow-up doctorate. Information regarding this is available from our study advisers.
The MBA programme International Management is directed primarily at graduates of non-business degree courses who wish to augment their knowledge from their first degree course and initial job experience with solid business and internationally orientated know-how. Equally, graduates of economics degree courses also profit from discovering models already familiar to them within a new context or even wish to refresh their knowledge which has possibly slightly faded during the course of everyday working life. The MBA programme International Management is a vital prerequisite for several participants to achieve the next career step.
The knowledge gained during the MBA programme enables the students to move safely within international business. Therefore, the students primarily have excellent promotion opportunities in companies which operate internationally.
Due to the diversified study programme, possible areas of work in Consulting, Project Management, Marketing and Sales or General Management are conceivable. The students are also provided with a good vocational perspective in Product Development and Research.
Moreover, possible work perspectives with authorities, government-related institutions or non-profit organisations can result in virtually all fields. Here, for example, we can name the financial area, the processing industry, telecommunications industry, healthcare or environmental economics.
It must be noted that the Fast Track MBA qualification does not qualify you for a follow-up doctorate under certain circumstances. Please contact our study advisers regarding this.
The programme incorporates a total of 8 modules which are spread over three terms. In total, the programme is designed for one year. The students already attend initial preparation courses on the topic of Research Principles before studying. In addition to the introductory modules for the area of Management Principles and Organisation and Strategy, Accounting Basics are also taught in the first term. Seminars are held at the Career School between the first and second terms.
The modules Business Environment, Global Value Chain Management as well as International Human Resources Management and Change Management are on the agenda in the second term.
There are no lectures any longer during the final term which is planned for preparing the Master of Arts Thesis. In the thesis, for example, the students process a current problem in a company whilst taking scientifically sound methods and approaches into consideration – with pleasure also in close collaboration with a company. In this way, both the students and the companies profit from the results elaborated.
