MBA @ Offenburg University

The MBA program International Business Consulting, or commonly referred to as MBA-IBC, was established in 1999 and has grown ever since in terms of internationality, quality, students’ intakes and curriculum.

The strong involvement of Offenburg University in the regional economy led to the development of an MBA program with a practical orientation that is reflective of today's business challenges. As with any organization within any economy of the world, the basic challenges are similar in nature, and hence MBA-IBC graduates are equipped to deal with the evolving needs of the industries not only in Germany, but globally as well. MBA-IBC program's equal concentration on the core business areas, namely management, logistics, accounting, finance and information technology both at a strategic and an operational level optimally prepares our students to meet the challenges of the global economy. Despite the ‘consulting’ in the degree title, our graduates are not only destined for consultancy positions. Some of our alumni's profiles are highlighted on the Alumni Profiles page.

Hence, MBA-IBC is one of the most relevant programs to those who seek career development amidst the changing landscape of global business, while taking into account the exposure to internationality and competitiveness. The return on the investment in this MBA is truly exceptional.
