Start-up scholarship programme launched!

At the start of the winter semester 2023/24, prospective students of the programme Start-up Development (MBA) have the chance to apply for one of two start-up scholarships: The scholarship covers 100% of the tuition fees and is aimed at (prospective) founders who would like to combine their start-up with academic further education, but do not have the financial means to fully exploit their potential.


„Der direkte Draht zu Erfahrungsträgern, das Netzwerk und der Austausch mit den Kommilitonen sind klare Vorteile des Studiengangs gegenüber dem Gründen auf eigene Faust. Diese drei Faktoren bereichern mein Gründungsvorhaben enorm. Ich habe das Gefühl, dass es seit dem Start des MBA so richtig nach vorne geht. ”
