    Frequently asked questions

    • When and how can you apply for the part-time Master’s program MBA in Digital Business & AI?

      Applications can be submitted continuously until the application deadline. However, due to the limited number of available spots, it is recommended to apply as early as possible. You can apply while completing your Bachelor’s degree or before entering the workforce, as long as you expect to complete your Bachelor’s degree before the start of the Master’s program. Since the Master’s program is designed for working professionals, it’s advisable to inform your employer about your plans before the start of your studies, although it’s not necessary at the time of application.

    • How does the selection process for the part-time Master’s program MBA in Digital Business & AI work?

      The selection process consists of two stages. In the initial stage, the application documents are reviewed, focusing on academic performance (such as Bachelor’s grades, proficiency in management and statistics), language proficiency, and practical experience. The second stage involves an interview with the selection committee in Nuremberg, lasting approximately 30-60 minutes. Following the interview, applicants receive prompt feedback, providing them with early planning certainty. If essential study prerequisites are not met at the time of application (such as completion of the Bachelor’s degree or one year of practical experience before starting a career), admission may be granted conditionally.
