Master of Business Administration

The MBA Potsdam is a two-year, part-time programme designed for high potential professionals with business career aspirations.

Welcome to the postgraduate part-time program Master of Business Administration (MBA) at Potsdam University. The fundamental objective of our MBA programs is to promote our participants’ personal and professional career goals, which are crucial for the long-term success of their company.

The students are trained in all areas of the current management theory and learn how these are areas interconnected. Beside inspecting various practical situations and issues, we place great emphasis on analytic and strategic thinking. Beyond profound education, special training is provided by case studies reflecting issues of the various specific sectors.

The part-time degree program can be completed - parallel to employment - in a space of two years by alternating on-site attendance and distance learning phases. With this model, participants can acquire the Master’s degree and thereby advance in their job. 

Please note: Our modules are almost exclusively taught in German language. Therefore very good Germans skills are required.
