At its core, ESMT’s MBA program takes a general management and personal development approach that gathers up to 65 students from more than 30 countries, not just in Europe, but around the world. At ESMT, we believe that 50% of an MBA experience is new learning in the classroom, and 50% is integrative, personal development. Throughout the program, the MBA challenges students to work in diverse teams, discover their drives and limits, and question conventional thinking.

Living in Berlin provides students with great location advantages in any of the three core tracks. Innovation & Entrepreneurship courses lead you from idea generation all the way to implementation and commercialization, with Berlin's entrepreneurial ecosystem as a backdrop. Managerial Analytics concentrates on the skills and knowledge needed to manage analysts and drive insightful decision-making processes, while Strategic Leadership hones the aptitude to design, evaluate, and execute complex growth strategies across borders and in large corporations. Strong connections to corporations, small-and-midsized enterprises and industry allow students to observe and practice themes taught in the last two tracks.

Currently ranked in the Financial Times Business School ranking as the #1 business school in Germany and #9 in Europe, ESMT is one of only two business schools in Germany to appear in every international ranking among the top business school rankings. Our MBA is ranked as the #1 program in Germany according to the Bloomberg: Best B-Schools Rankings.
