The two year study programme is pursued in tandem to a professional career. Courses will be mainly held in Ingelfingen, with seminars in London at the English partner institutes. Furthermore, the study programme will also follow the "Distance Learning" principle. A considerable portion of the programme will be carried out virtually and via email with the students that are involved in the project and the English university professors. The teaching language is English only.
This study programme is being carried out with Bürkert's involvement for the second time this year. The group of students is comprised of 8 managers from Bürkert's European and Asian companies. The attendance based lectures in Germany will also provide them with an excellent opportunity to improve their business contacts with the parent company. An additional 12 up-and-coming managers, mainly from Germany, will also be participating. All of the students are employed with renowned national and international companies. It is precisely this mix which promises the students a deepening of their professional skills as they will be constantly in contact with each other.
The study programme is divided into two years of study, including a one week course in London. Over the course of 10 study blocks, the students will receive in-depth knowledge of strategic corporate management and must demonstrate the skills they have acquired in project work. Great emphasis will be placed in the independent understanding of the knowledge by the participants, which will then be explored further in seminars.
The exams will be taken in London and/or Ingelfingen. Students that successfully complete the study programme will be awarded the title of Master of Business Administration (MBA).
