The MBA Leadership is a master's degree program aimed at a working and experienced target group from various professional fields and areas of activity. Leadership experience should already exist or at least be aspired to in the near future. The contents of the MBA enable students to critically examine economic and social issues as well as their own leadership role and to develop innovative approaches and appropriate solutions for the respective field of activity, especially with regard to diversity as a success factor and innovation driver.
The program is divided into a total of 15 modules, each of which is completed within one semester. The Master's thesis with colloquium follows in the 4th semester. The subject modules can be assigned to one of the following categories: Diversity, General Management, Individual Development, Corporate Development.
The topic of sustainability - both in the sense of long-term successful corporate development and in the sense of taking into account economic, legal, ecological and social aspects - is addressed in various modules in the areas of general management and organizational development. The Business Impact Project and the Master's thesis with colloquium serve the overarching acquisition of competencies and, like the elective module, open up scope for self-designed studies. In addition to the latest didactic formats, practical examples - case studies, role plays and situations from your practice - provide ideal learning situations and the opportunity for reflection.
The duration of the study program is 4 semesters. The study program is designed to be part-time. In the first three semesters, there are approximately 15 attendance days per semester. These are distributed over Fridays and Saturdays. In the fourth semester, the master's thesis is written.

A coordinated examination concept ensures that the examination load is distributed adequately over the entire course of study. This is achieved by varying the forms of examination for the individual modules, thus achieving an appropriate and balanced distribution for each semester between written examinations, written assignments and participation within the attendance phase (through presentations, etc.).
Many of the examination forms are directly linked to the respective work areas of the participants. These include, for example, the presentation of case studies from professional practice or projects for individual development that can be integrated into their everyday work.
