We believe that academic education at Coburg University is not limited to a classroom environment, but also happens off campus. Hence, we expose and connect our students to the real world on a variety of levels.
For this objective, our MBA students participate in:
a 20-week internship at a German company
firm outings and cultural study trips linked to specific coursework, giving them the opportunity to visit a number of iconic cities and experience German culture and history
an academic excursion led by staff and faculty, in which we explore the business, political and cultural facets of large German cities or the capital cities of our neighbours
The internship, field trips and academic excursion bridge theory and practice. They form an integral part of the curriculum. We consider these activities key to enhance students’ networking abilities and stimulate their integration in Germany, whilst facilitating contact with future employers. Invariably they are memorable experiences.
In the last semester students focus on the master’s thesis. Many students choose to conduct research on an innovative theme in one of their courses, while others prefer a topic relating to their tasks at their internship.
a 3-year Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) preferably in the field of Business Administration, Commerce or Economics (min. grade of 2,5 on the German scale or a 2.5 GPA on a four-point scale).
