FIBAA Accredited Programme The Master of Business Engineering® Entrepreneurship can be compared with a MBA programme. Yet there are two decisive differences:
  • Firstly, the programme combines management science, business administration, law and economics with technology and engineering.
    In addition there is a strong emphasis on developing the social skills necessary for being a successful entrepreneurial leader of change and Innovation.
    Thus, the MBE® Entrepreneurship gives perfect support to all who are engaged in real high tech projects.
  • Secondly, and utterly important, the MBE® Entrepreneurship is about the engineering of new and innovative businesses. Its aim is creation, not mere administration.

Who gains most

  • Those who have a background in natural sciences, engineering, data sciences, medicine, or industrial design eager to run a start-up or a young company in tech driven high competitive environment.
