The HHL Part-time Master Programs

Part-time M.Sc.

The HHL part-time Master in Management program is specifically designed for young professionals and high-potentials. The program allows you to build on your previous qualifications alongside your profession and thereby open up brand new possibilities for your career. The program’s flexibility enables you to reconcile your current job with your aspirations to gain a Master’s degree. For a good work-life balance you can choose if you would like to participate in Leipzig, Cologne or Munich. The program starts in September, has a duration of two years and consists of seven to eight lecture weekends per year. In addition two residential weeks each year on the HHL campus in Leipzig are scheduled to allow all students to get to know each other and study together.

Part-time MBA

The part-time MBA program is tailored to professionals and executives who are highly-motivated, have some initial professional experience and are planning the next step in their career. The program has a strong international emphasis and uses an innovative, integrated approach to develop your leadership and management competencies. One focal point is the promotion of the entrepreneurial mindset and actions with a close practical relevance. As a result, candidates will obtain an extensive body of knowledge, competencies and skills which will help to solve even the most challenging management tasks in an interdisciplinary context. The 24-month program is divided into compulsory basic modules, more in-depth extension modules and a special highlight at the end of the program: the Global Immersion Seminar in Boston, MA, USA.
