The General Management MBA program is a part-time study, which offers future managers the opportunity to acquire basic economic, legal and social knowledge.

One of the targets of the General Management MBA as a postgraduate course is to contribute to a scientific basis with functional and/or industry-oriented specialization options to the professional and personal development of the participants.

Students learn about the latest instruments in the field of management and leadership. This enables them to increase their professional, entrepreneurial and personal potential and prepares them ideally for future management tasks.

Students receive input of knowledge (current methods, theories and empirical contexts as well as trends and tools in management) and they frequently improve their theoretical knowledge in group discussions, case studies and practical questions in order to expand their competence.

In the basic modules at TU Wien, you will gain business and technology management know-how and raise your leadership skills to a new level. In the in-depth modules at the Danube University Krems, you will deepen your knowledge and set individual focal points according to your personal interests and professional goals.

The in-depth modules are predominantly offered in e-learning mode and enable a time-independent, flexible study. The degree can therefore be completed in 2 to 4 semesters. In addition to the e-learning modules, in-class modules at the Danube University Krems as well as study trips (at an additional cost, subject to availability of places) can be selected.
