Admission requirements

To be admitted to this distance-learning MBA in General Management at Hochschule Fresenius, you must fulfil the following requirements:

You must have acquired a professional qualification via a first university degree in a non-business subject with at least 210 credit points. This is usually a Bachelor’s degree. If you hold other relevant academic qualifications (such as a Master’s or a German “Diplom”, state examination, or “Magister”), you may also be admitted.

You need relevant full-time professional experience following your first university degree (in general, at least two years). To be deemed relevant, this experience must relate to your desired MBA study program.

English skills are required, equivalent to Level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

You have not completed a first university degree? Or you have completed your Bachelor’s degree with less than 210 credit points? In this case, you can also start your studies by other means:

If you have completed your bachelor’s degree with 180 credit points, you will subsequently need at least 2.5 years of relevant work experience.

Instead of a professional qualification via a first university degree, you will need

  • a university entrance qualification (“Hochschulzugangsberechtigung”),
    • a completed vocational training program, and
    • relevant full-time work experience after the vocational training (in general, at least four years).

In this case, you will also take our aptitude test.
