Künzelsau. On Friday, 21 November 2014, 30 students of University of Louisville received their MBA Certificates in Global Business in a festive ceremony at Alma Würth Hall of Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG.

Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. Harald Unkelbach, Member of the Management of Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG, opened the ceremony with a speech and expressed his congratulations to the graduates. They were also congratulated by Prof. Dr. Jürgen Schröder, President of Heilbronn University.

"Completing an MBA degree alongside the job requires great readiness to perform. Stay curious also after your studies and apply what you learned in your everyday business life." was Professor Reinhold Würth's advice to the graduates. Prof. Rohan Christie David, Dean of the College of Business at University of Louisville, handed over the MBA certificates to the graduates, saying: "You haven't just enhanced your specialist knowledge in the past months, but also your intercultural skills by studying in an international context."

The MBA program

Globally operating businesses are looking for employees with internationally recognized degrees, experience abroad and excellent English language skills, now more than ever. The MBA program offers the ideal platform for that. 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).

The very practice-oriented lectures and exercises are held exclusively in English. In addition to that, the participants complete half of the study period in the U.S. The program therefore does not only improve the students' language skills, but also fosters intercultural exchange.
