We live in a time of great change, not least in the area of work. Now more than ever, it is vital that education keeps up with the pace of transformation. That’s why, at Steinbeis SMI, we are continually adapting our MBA program, taking into account not only what we see happening now but also what trends we see coming in the future.
Business leaders in every field will need a strong foundation of adaptable skills to create a comprehensive workforce strategy that harnesses the potential of this new era of transformation and innovation — the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The Steinbeis MBA is uniquely capable of equipping you with those necessary skills.
Whether you come from a business, law, engineering, or political or social science background, we can connect you to our global community of MBA fellows and alumni, creating a strong network for your future career.
Our innovative online learning system lets you study at home at a pace that suits you. You also have the option to spend a semester in Germany and attend a summer school with our top-ranked university partners — SDA Bocconi in Italy or the NYU Stern School of Business in the US.
Our wide range of modules will ensure that you can build on your strengths, close any gaps in your knowledge and leverage the opportunities that change often presents
Although the Business Foundations courses are mandatory for every student, you will get to chose one major and two minors based on your career path and learning objectives. Specialize in topics that excite you and can help advance your career — from entrepreneurship to marketing innovations and from data science to human resources management. Combining a strong general management foundation with up-to-date knowledge from the specializations of your choice, the Steinbeis MBA gives you the tools you need to meet the needs of the modern business world.
To enroll in our international master’s program, you must have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent. If you do not have a university degree, you may be accepted to our MBA program with a professional qualification (e.g., a minimum of five years of management experience and a successful assessment test).
