Mannheim Business School has been offering part-time MBA programs for over a decade. Thus, we are very attuned to the tension between the MBA program, professional challenges and private life and have designed the time structure of the Mannheim Part-Time MBA to mesh perfectly with the needs of professionals and executives. Altogether, the program includes 80 days of required attendance, distributed over twelve 4 to 8-day modules over three calendar years. This allows for effective use of the attendance days without placing an undue burden on participants' professional and private lives.

Paid Educational Leave

For Residents: Paid Educational Leave for Your Part-Time Studies

In many federal states of Germany, employees have the right to get a period of paid leave in order to take part in a state-approved educational program. These programs are accredited by Germany's federal states. Mannheim Business School has been accredited by the state of Baden-Württemberg. If you are a participant in one of our part-time MBA or EMBA programs and your company is based in Baden-Württemberg, you are eligible to apply for five days of paid leave per year.

The regulation in Baden-Württemberg is as follows:

  • Employees can apply for 5 working days of educational leave per year.
  • Educational leave cannot be transferred to the next calendar year.
  • Employees have to submit their application for educational leave at least 8 weeks before the start of the course/module.

In the other federal states of Germany, different laws apply; only Bavaria and Saxony currently do not have a legal regulation for educational leave. MBS supports participants in compiling the necessary documents for their federal state, and is committed to gain accreditation as educational institution in other federal states.
