The countdown begins: Starting my Part-time MBA this October!

A few years ago, I decided to move to Hamburg for my business and MBA studies. As I had already lived in the north before, I simply wanted to return home after a few stopovers in Germany and abroad. Hamburg has a special atmosphere and this is also reflected in the FS Campus. With the Part-time MBA, Frankfurt School now offers a promising connection between the Main and river Elbe.

Hamburg Attractions

As the Main metropolis, Frankfurt is a hotspot for young talents and newcomers, but the Hanseatic city, Hamburg, also offers a lot of potential. Many events and numerous leisure and sports facilities made it easy for me to get back on my feet when I returned. I had a chance to meet new people in and outside of the classroom – especially through business related clubs. The people in Hamburg are open-minded and communicative, so it is very easy to feel comfortable on site.

The “Speicherstadt” the newly built “Elbphilharmonie” and the “Altonaer Fischmarkt” are just a few of the Hanseatic city’s hotspots. Districts such as Eppendorf or Winterhude are great places to explore as it has many small cafes and great restaurants.

Enjoying everyday life alongside my studies and/or job has therefore never been a problem for me. The central location of the river Elbe and the Alster gives the HafenCity a natural atmosphere and offers a high quality of life. Hamburg is also economically strong! You can find large international companies, for example in the packaging or logistics sector, specialised in banking and financial service providers and an innovative start-up scene.

Frankfurt School in Hamburg

The Hamburg campus is centrally located in the middle of the HafenCity and has a direct connection to Hamburg’s main train station. I joined Frankfurt School’s Marketing & Recruitment department in 2019. Currently, I work closely with the Part-time MBA, which will start in October 2020 in our Hamburg campus. The programme has a duration of 21 months and is taught in English. Classes are held mainly on long weekends, enabling students to combine study, work and private life. For commuters, the fact that individual modules can be completed at the main campus in Frankfurt is particularly interesting. The course of study offers maximum flexibility in addition to high-quality management knowledge, intercultural experience and a strong business network.

Interested students can learn more about the Part-time MBA programme in Hamburg by either visiting our campus or attending one of our monthly online sessions. The practice-oriented study programme offers a wide range of career and development options. It also provides students the opportunity to combine one’s own career goals and full-time employment, while also continuing your studies at one of the top business schools in Germany.

Main or Elbe? A choice where you cannot go wrong.
