Faculty

Offenburg University is well-known as one of the most innovative universities in Germany. In 1999 the MBA program International Business Consulting was offered for the first time – back then it was a pioneer program in Germany. For us continuous improvement is an incentive, so that our graduates obtain the necessary knowledge and competence they need to become future managers. Their career path is supported by the MBA-IBC faculty, made up of both internal faculty members and external visiting professors and senior managers within the industry.
