Internationality is not something you learn, it's something you experience. The MBA programme 'European Management' at Saarland University is a well-established and challenging study programme designed to prepare graduates for management roles in European and international markets. The high quality of this MBA programme was recognized in 2009 when it was accredited by FIBAA, the Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation. The expert assessors praised the programme's international approach, the cooperation with business and academia, the broad range of teaching methodologies deployed, the use of case studies, the well-qualified teaching staff and the technical facilities and equipment available in the classrooms.

The MBA programme is coordinated and run by the Economics Section at Saarland University's Europa-Institut. The programme can be studied either part time or full time. The courses are taught by university teaching staff or by international guest professors. The range of courses on offer is very broad and includes lectures covering such areas as 'Strategic Management', 'Economics and Finance' or 'European Regulations' and topics of major current relevance, such as 'Corporate Sustainability and Social Responsibility' or 'Marketing and Management in Foreign Countries'.

Many of the courses include practically relevant case studies that reveal and reflect authentic business challenges. Students therefore have the chance to become acquainted with real-world business scenarios and to appreciate the associated risks and opportunities. The MBA programme also trains soft skills such as team training and business behaviour and organizes visits to companies.

'The Europa-Institut combines the benefits of an established and high-quality MBA programme with the infrastructure and traditions of a major university. Being part of a cutting-edge MBA programme located on the Saarland University campus is both highly rewarding and a lot of fun.' (Christian Gansen, MBA, who graduated from the MBA programme in 'European Management').
