Studying at KLU means learning in an international, multi-cultural atmosphere: our students and professors come from all over the world, all of our courses are held in English, and our curricula address the international issues facing today’s businesses. As part of the MBA program, two sessions are held at international partner universities: one at the Fisher College of Business, the Ohio State University, USA, and one at the Universidad de los Andes School of Management in Bogotá, Colombia.
Today’s businesses find themselves at the heart of a vastly growing and dynamic network of information. To ensure that an organization can sustain a value proposition for customers and society over the long term requires the continual reevaluation of information relevant for business activities and keeping up with the newest developments in digital technologies. Students of KLU’s MBA program learn how to use information systems in an integrated way to support fact-based decision-making, interact effectively and efficiently within their organization as well as with partners, customers and other stakeholders and thus ultimately enhance the organizations’ competitiveness on a global scale.
Competing on a global scale requires an understanding of how global markets operate and how competitors in these markets compete. Proper organizational structure and leadership are necessary if a global strategy is to be effectively implemented and for sustainable value to be created for stakeholders. KLU’s MBA provides students with the tools, leadership skills and financial practices necessary to develop a sustainable corporate strategy and to implement an organizational structure that supports this strategy.
Furthermore, long-term value creation only occurs if an organization can consistently develop new and valuable products for their customers and society. KLU’s MBA teaches students how to develop new products using processes and procedures that are driven by “voice of the customer” marketing and sales activities.
Organizational activities do not occur in an isolated manner. Operations impact the workers who perform the work, the society in which the work is performed, the environment and all stakeholders from owners to customers. To create consistent and sustainable value requires leadership not only in the technical areas of operations management, but in the areas of socio-economic sustainability and human resource leadership. KLU’s MBA teaches students effective and efficient operations techniques concerning green and lean operations and how to engage the hearts and minds of employees by leading through listening, so that their organizations create long-term, sustainable value.
The sessions of module 6 and 7 are held at our international partner universities Fisher College of Business, The Ohio State University, U.S.A. and Universidad de los Andes School of Management, Bogotá, Colombia to enhance global and inter-cultural business skills. During the two trips, students will experience how other cultures learn and work. The study trips are entirely organized by the KLU and expenses regarding teaching materials, meals, excursions and supporting program are covered. Please note that costs regarding flights and visa arrangements are not covered. The program coordinator will provide you with all important information regarding visa applications. Please make sure that you book your flights and apply for your visa well in advance. Please note that both study trips are fully recognized as educational leave. We will provide you with the relevant confirmation.

My experience as an MBA student at KLU goes far beyond my original expectations. The open discussions with the professors and the rest of the group make all the difference, as they are always enriching, challenging, and enjoyable! I am not only expanding my knowledge in Supply Chain, but I am also shaping the leader I aspire to be in the future.
The KLU MBA program not only focuses on intellectual development. Personal development also plays an important role. This program greatly succeeds in both.
The MBA program has had a lasting impact on my (professional) life. Approaching new topics with a necessary degree of curiosity, openness and determination was a very important experience and encourages you to meet new challenges with an open mind, both in professional and private life. This international study program was an absolute benefit for me personally. It has contributed a lot to my thinking and acting and I was able to get to know great fellow students. I am very grateful to have been able to study at such a great university, with a professional administration and such great professors.
The MBA program is a very good opportunity for those who want to leave their comfort zone and develop themselves further. The program provides an optimal foundation for this in terms of content, fellow students, professors and fun! I highly recommend the program.
Choosing KLU was one of the greatest decisions I have ever made. The MBA made my experience and knowledge grow so much. Even today I am connected with my classmates and I am using the gained knowledge in my constantly growing career path.
Joining the MBA program at KLU was definitely the right decision for me and I would highly recommend it to anyone that is interested in taking up an MBA. Why is that? Three reasons stood out for me: relevant and real-life topics that are taught by top academics or industry experts, fruitful and engaging discussions with co-students from across the globe and a setup of monthly study sessions in Hamburg that made it possible to attend while working full-time.
This MBA is an attractive opportunity for anyone who seeks to reflect on previous work experience and to get ready for new challenges. Relevant and practical contents combined with a modern and open-minded university culture make this program a truly worthwhile experience.
Thanks to the MBA program at KLU I’ve started to change my life – professionally in my career and also in my private life. The Intensive exchange during this international program has changed me, teaching me new hard skills but also critical thinking and an open-minded approach to everything.
Many thanks for 18 inspiring months in which I was able to grow in so many ways. Great classmates, great professors, great & challenging sessions – all in all a decision I will never regret.
I have excellent memories of the great times during my MBA at KLU. Everybody involved, the KLU staff, my fellow students and all the people we met on our 1.5-year journey made it an unforgettable experience.
