PART-TIME MBA IN TECHNOLOGY MANAGEMENT – WORK-COMPATIBLE

Our MBA program in Technology Management is designed for part-time study in Hamburg, Germany. Classes are held in the evenings, on weekends, and at two four-week “spring schools” in March and February of the first and second years respectively.

For students already employed in industry up to 5 working days a year may count as educational leave (“Bildungsurlaub”). Since our MBA program is demanding, please consider involving your employer in your postgraduate education. You will start with a challenging first semester, but the workload decreases after the first spring school. Semester dates are set in advance to allow for long-term planning.
