Program Description

Master of Business Administration (MBA) Non-Business Background

OHM Professional School

Master of Business Administration for Non-Financials

Due to the more than 15 years of experience as a provider of MBA programs according to the traditional Anglo-Saxon model, the OHM Professional School (OPS) is considered one of the most experienced business schools in Germany.

Within 18 or 24 months, our MBA participants develop essential knowledge in central areas of corporate governance in an international context, concurrent with their regular employment.

The program of the MBA is made up of 14 internationally oriented modules and two electives. We are thus able to provide comprehensive management training that also includes all functional areas of classic Business Studies.

Study weeks at partner universities in the United States and China enrich and strengthen the cultural competency of our participants.

The design of the program places a particular emphasis on a good balance of theoretical and practical teaching modules. Partner companies that are closely linked to the OPS also contribute toward the strong practical relevance with their comprehensive support, as do lectures by renowned executives, and excursions.

You then complete your part-time MBA program with a three-month Master’s thesis, which ideally is of particular practical relevance.

The learning atmosphere in the part-time MBA program is characterized by multicultural diversity. Roughly 70% of program participants are of international origin.

The teaching and conversation language of the MBA program is solely English, which already serves to promote intercultural and social competence in the daily environment of the program.

Awards and accreditation

We at the OHM Professional School have been committed to quality and continuous improvement from the very beginning. As the MBA is carried out according to international standards and the Anglo-Saxon model, the OHM Professional School stands apart from other German universities.

Since 2005 the General Management MBA has been ACQUIN accredited. In the course of the accreditation, the Master programs at the OHM Professional School (formerly Georg-Simon-Ohm Management Institute) were examined with regard to their content quality, their professional qualification, their modularization, their ECTS credit point system and their compliance with standard periods of study. Personnel, facilities, and quality management were further criteria that were assessed.
