Dear Prospective Student,
I'm pleased to welcome you on the website of the MBA Program “International Business Consulting” (IBC). We started the program in 1999 and the same year it was integrated into the DAAD funding for international Master programs.
The objective of the program is to provide the best study environment and teaching methods available to enable the transfer of both established and modern knowledge in an easy and practice-oriented way.
The teaching methods are carefully chosen: There is a balance between theoretical input and further development of topics in small groups on the one hand, as well as implementation of the knowledge in assignments, case studies and group discussions on the other hand.
Past experience has shown that no university or business school is able to cover the various topics related to consulting in a professional way by only depending on its in-house faculty. That is why we apply the open faculty concept, i.e. in addition to our internal professors, we engage academicians from other German and foreign universities as well as senior managers from reputable consultancies. This is how the IBC Program integrates various contents and management tools forming a homogeneous whole, i.e. exciting and carefully reflected contents and a high degree of application orientation.
Offenburg University is a small but successful institution for higher education. In 2001, it received the award of “Reform-oriented University”. All of the international Master's programs offered have been accredited. In addition, the University's MBA program has received recognition from QS Global Ranking 2012/13 and 2013/14 as one of the emerging regional business schools. With our competitive tuitions fees, which make the IBC program a very attractive choice due to the favorable return on investment.
I invite you to learn more about the IBC program and contact us for more information. Our online application process is user friendly, quick and effective.
I look forward to welcoming you to our campus soon.
Professor Dr. Rainer Fischer
MBA-IBC Program Director
