„The MBA Fundamental Program is a great opportunity to gain important basic knowledge about management. This means a huge advantage for future job hunting, especially in industry. The MBA Fundamental Program is such that one can tailor the program to his/her individual interests since there are not only mandatory but also elective and optional courses. The program is very diversely designed as it consists of different modules which are a mixture of lectures, group work as well as case studies and presentations.”

Tanja Schmitt, Physical-Chemical Institute at the Ruprecht-Karls-University Heidelberg

"The MBA Intercultural Training course offers an excellent opportunity to dig into a fundamental aspect of project development, focusing on working environments that involve people with diverse cultural backgrounds. This course provides tools to understand cultural differences from a broad perspective, and therefore, I recommend it to students who aim to see these differences as a factor to enrich collaborations rather than as a barrier."
