Structure and Mission of the DBS
The Düsseldorf Business School was created through close partnership with the Business and Economic Science Department of the Heinrich Heine University. It is supported by renowned companies and organizations in the Düsseldorf area, the Heinrich Heine University, and professors of the Business Department. This structure is unique in continuing education in Germany.
For more than 14 years, a close connection with partners in the business world has distinguished the position and development of the DBS. DBS integrates high intellectual quality with strong practical application: Degrees from MBA studies are awarded by the Heinrich Heine University, which ensures a university-level academic achievement with international recognition.
The ongoing involvement of our private sector partners in the further development of the program guarantees that the knowledge and competencies being taught are immediately professionally relevant. The courses of the DBS clearly fulfill the international requirements set forth for MBA programs. Our program has also received approval from FIBAA, the international accreditation agency.
Several factors are crucial for the successful completion of the MBA programme and as a basis for converting acquired knowledge and skills into business practice:
- Excellence in formation and execution of courses of study which are well-founded theoretically and practically relevant; these are ensured by a team of experienced professors from university and businesses, as well as the application of the latest teaching and learning methods.
- Flexibility for students; above all, this concerns the students’ opportunity, through extra-occupational studies, to balance study periods with working periods. Flexibility is additionally seen in elective subjects and variants within the curriculum.
- The economic environment in which studies take place; the city of Düsseldorf with its numerous business activities, especially in forward-looking branches, ensures the dynamic environment.
