Master of Business Administration (MBA)
The MBA degree program at Berlin International is set within the unique Berlin context, which not only houses many multinational corporations (MNCs), but also represents a major start-up hub in Europe. The BI learning environment is problem-based and has a strong focus on applied practitioner approaches. It is unique in the sense that it entails a truly international, intercultural, and interdisciplinary academic experience, consisting of a diverse student and teaching body, as well as the BAU global network.
The ultimate goal of the program is to prepare global professionals of diverse backgrounds with solid managerial knowledge, tools, and skills, strengthened by an alluring network, in order to create value under changing business environments. The MBA operates under the global iAccelerate network, which strengthens innovative entrepreneurial projects.
Students profit from the program’s flexible and project-based orientation towards entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship, albeit amid a conscious and practical understanding of emerging economies and their interaction with other markets.
We view every class as a unique experience, including valuable interactions with external organizations (e.g. corporations, startups) through company visits, simulations, and city discoveries within the dynamic flair of Berlin. The MBA is built around a balanced mix of course formats, including projects, classical lectures, seminars, workshops, computer-lab sessions, and colloquia, albeit through innovative teaching techniques that foster the development of core competencies.
At Berlin International, all lectures are fully taught in English. Teaching the MBA courses in English helps prepare our students for the global market and supports their role in an international business setting.
