Our extensively experienced faculty from business and academia works individually with our students and is personally available.

The interactive program format and the continuous integration of real-world challenges and projects from the students’ professional background bring about a deep, personal and outstanding learning experience. YOUR BENEFITS AT A GLANCE Two international degrees, governmentally licensed and accredited: - Master of Arts (M.A.) from the Steinbeis University Berlin, Germany - Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the Post University, Waterbury, CT, USA 100 % English language 100 % Online - no mandatory online presence or travel schedule 100 % flexiblity with time & location Personal support from the universities’ real and experienced faculty Continuous integration of job and real-world business challenges Diverse student groups from both universities for advanced networking opportunities Highly competitive pricing and unique financing options Program Goal Competent leaders are characterized by their ability to act self-organized in complex, unpredictable and unforeseeable situations as a role model. This professional competence requires the individual’s ability to acquire and assess knowledge and convert it into decisions and actions that win people to join a path of vision driven actions. Aiming for bringing about this type of competence in its graduates, the Online M.A./MBA (USA) combines management knowledge with managerial business practice and competence development. Interactive Online Three factors characterize the Online M.A./MBA (USA) learning experience: The Online M.A./MBA (USA) is a 100% online and asynchronous study program. This means, everything happens online and there are no mandatory presences required for which you have to be at a certain place at a defined time The Online M.A./MBA (USA) is a highly interactive program. You, your peers and your professors join and contribute frequently and regularly to discuss topics and to work on assignments on the platforms Your faculty supervises and guides you and your classes’ learning progress and gives you frequent personal feedback on how you are doing. Career Impact Management Project Right from the start, we ask you about the career goals you want to accomplish by joining the Online M.A./MBA (USA). If you do not already have a management project idea at the time of the program start, we help you to define a “real-world management project” from your area of interest. E.g.: if you are seeking a career in international marketing, we guide you to identify a specific, real and ongoing business challenge within the broad field of international marketing. If you are seeking a career as a leader in IT and you are interested in the effects of the mega-trend digitalization on your industry, we work with you on identifying a suitable management project from this field. What matters is that you find a relevant management-project that you can use to boost your resume effectively. Real-World Integration The courses in the Online M.A./MBA (USA) on Post University’s learning platform take you beyond your management project and integrate real-world challenges in diverse ways and across multiple managerial topics. Each course uses specific tasks through which you apply knowledge to your professional background, cases or other entrepreneurial and business situations. As an output of this effort, you learn skills about "how-to-get-the-job-done" in financial management, marketing management, corporate strategy and so forth. Competence Development The Online M.A./MBA (USA) is guided by a continuous competence development process. The process uses competence assessments, which work on the positive assumption that every person has specific, individual competences. Identifying these competences and finding ways to utilize these for a future career development is the goal of the program’s competence development. Content and Structure Combining two study programs (a German Master’s of Arts (M.A.) in General Management and a U.S. Master’s of Business Administration (MBA) degree), the Online M.A./MBA (USA) provides two qualifications in one. While the MBA program emphasizes and promotes a student’s practical, entrepreneurial capabilities »to get the job done«, the M.A. furthers analytical and theoretical skills to approach and comprehend complex entrepreneurial challenges. The two programs combined, help you to develop the ability to analyze and understand greater business contexts, to define goals amidst most complex challenges and assess and identify strategies to accomplish these goals. Concurrently the Online M.A./MBA (USA) challenges you as a leader and gives you methods and tools on how to successfully manage, lead people and drive business. Each academic partners organizes and teaches one part of the program. Each course at Post University is self-contained and teaches practical management and leadership. The M.A. courses conducted by SIBE build upon the MBA courses and transfer additional knowledge. MODs conducted by SIBE are interconnected through the management-project development and the competence development process. Assessments Certainly, the Online M.A./MBA (USA) requires you to acquire new knowledge and pass evaluations. However, since actual competence is more important for your successful career and job development than passed exams in a study program, we have designed the program with this goal in mind. This means, the Online M.A./MBA (USA) does not use written tests to evaluate hard fact knowledge, but we want to see your level of ability to successfully use and apply knowledge from the studies in real-world situations. Therefore, for assessments, Online M.A./MBA (USA) students develop problem solutions and process tasks in the form of presentations, research papers, project work and similar. Student Support Academic Success Counselor (ASC): Each class has one defined ASC. An ASC is the one "go-to" person for each student in all personal and organizational matters. It is the ASC’s role to provide administrative and organizational advice and support to all students in their goal to successfully graduate from the program with two degrees. Faculty: Professors in the Online M.A./MBA (USA) are business and teaching experienced professionals with teaching positions at SIBE and/or Post University.
