You can either start with the first term in Bremen in choosing the core modules of our full-time master’s course and acquire the basics of an MBA, which are of the same excellent quality at every IBSA-partner university.

Or you decide for our specialization in the second and third term and get a sound and deep knowledge of International Logistics and Supply Chain Management. Bremen’s location is tailor-made for this specialization and many international logistic companies are situated here. Bremerhaven, the seaport of the free city-state of Bremen, is one of the largest European ports. Among other goods more than 1.350.000 cars are imported and exported every year and its traffic is growing constantly.

Studying in Bremen combines the advantages of living in a modern and developing business centre in Germany with the atmosphere of an old, historically grown city. Enjoy learning in small groups in an international community of students from all over the world. Feel at home in our International Graduate Center with its complete and personal service and its always approachable staff. Live and study in walking distance of the city centre of Bremen – it’s a worthwhile experience!
