Mannheim Business School has been offering Executive MBA programs for over a decade. Thus, we are very attuned to the tension between the Executive MBA, professional challenges and private life and have designed the time structure of the Mannheim Executive MBA to mesh perfectly with the needs of professionals and executives. Altogether, the program includes 77 days of required attendance, 44 of which are on workdays, distributed over two calendar years. This allows for effective use of the attendance days without placing an undue burden on participants' professional and private lives.
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-Wuerttemberg. If you are a participant in one of our part-time MBA or EMBA programs and your company is based in Baden-Wuerttemberg, you are eligible to apply for five days of paid leave per year.

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.
