"The MBA at THM Business School will introduce you to different kinds of business areas and will prepare you for teamwork, networking, leadership, planning and strategy. In my opinion, this program will expand your horizon and teach you to see the things in a different view."
Why did you choose the MBA study with the THM?
After my studies as industrial engineer at the Fachhochschule Giessen-Friedberg, now the THM, I started to work for different telecommunication companies in several Finance and Controlling positions. In my current position at an international company I had worked for six years when I decided to start a MBA program. My situation was in a rut and for a change I needed more international experience. In addition, it was also the time for me to start something new. In this situation the THM Business School offered me the opportunity to do my MBA while working full time. The fixed schedule of the whole program rendered it possible to accommodate the modules with my job and my family.
How was your study experience?
When I started this MBA I was 43 years old and met fellow students from the age of 25 to 50 years from different countries and different backgrounds with the same goal. That was quite an interesting situation and experience. In such a diverse student body I met very interesting people from interesting companies that gave me different points of views and perspectives I had not had before.
The business language in my current company is English. Therefore, a MBA program in English was important for me – a feature the MBA at THM Business School offers. In addition, the program offered two modules abroad, one in Charlotte, USA and one in Bergamo, Italy and these were also a huge enrichment and an experience I never want to miss.
In the modules of the MBA program I was confronted with tasks I had not been exposed to in my jobs before. Tackling business issues and finding solutions with my fellow students prepared me to deal better with such situations in my daily job. There were no modules with high or low priority, quite the contrary: the modules other than the accounting and finance were very interesting to me and opened the idea if I should start working in a different area. This comprehensive and integrated view of managing companies is a crucial advantage of this (traditional) general management MBA program –as opposed to MBA programs with a focus on a business function or an industry.
The MBA at THM Business School will introduce you to different kinds of business areas and will prepare you for teamwork, networking, leadership, planning and strategy. In my opinion, this program will expand your horizon and teach you to see the things in a different view. During the MBA at THM Business School the question was how we can learn all of the assigned and discussed concepts - now we have to ask how we can transfer what we learned to our working life.
