The postgraduate degree programme is designed to enable students to engage in research in business administration both within and outside of universities. Its launch in the winter semester 1999/2000 aims to revalue the after-diploma degrees and enhance their competitiveness in the international market. At the same time, our School strengthens its own research by means of the MBR. It is the research-based phase of studies which falls by the wayside in German universities.
The standard length of study is four semesters. The vital innovative element of the research course is the so-called integration course in which a class of about 24 students, for the duration of one year and supervised by two or more professors, intensively resolve significant matters of research. Furthermore, the MBR includes a project course which serves for the preparation of the doctoral thesis and an extension course within the scope of which the student acquires expertise in and attends classes on methodology, scientific theory, and specialised issues upon agreement with his mentor.
