prospective students will receive more detailed information. Prof. Bodo Wilmes, Academic Head of Studies, will be presenting the concept of the two courses of study and explain the contents. More detailed information will be provided on organization and contents of the courses of study.

The MBA program

The 13-month course leading up to a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Global Business is open to all interested academics with at least three years of professional experience after the first degree. The MBA degree is awarded by the College of Business of the University of Louisville. The college is fully accredited by the American Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). In November 2007, the MBA was also accredited by the Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (FIBAA). This accreditation was the prerequisite for the German state of Baden-Württemberg confirming that the degree enables the graduates to access the higher service. This means that the MBA can be considered a full university degree.

Doctoral studies

Since summer 2009, there is furthermore the possibility to do one’s doctorate in cooperation with the University of Louisville. The curriculum of the study program is geared towards providing further education to graduates with a first university degree in engineering or natural sciences leading up to a “Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering“ within three to four years of study alongside the job. The studies offered are intended for university graduates (university, university of applied sciences, accredited vocational college/dual academy) with several years of professional experience who would like to qualify for tasks in engineering or general management, but also strive for the academic title.

According to a resolution passed by the German Standing Conference of Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs on 6 March 2008 graduates of US-American Ph.D. studies are allowed to use the German title “Dr.” without having to specify the subject or type of university, provided the university is listed in the so-called Carnegie Classification. This is the case with the University of Louisville.
