The New Master Class

Dear reader,

our new master class has just completed one of the general management modules , the so called “Core of Business & Management Module”.

It was taught by faculty member Dr. Uwe Hilzenbecher. Congratulations to all the participants!

A New Master Class – MBA or MSc?

During the past two weeks a new Master Class has taken its first steps towards their master degree.

One of the most outstanding aspects of all our programs is the modularized structure. However, our programs are not only modularized. They are also highly synchronized.

Credits awarded in one program can be transferred to any other program of the Lorange Institute.

This means that you even have the possibility to switch to another program in case you fulfill the entry requirements.

Did you know, that, with the exception of “Core of Business & Management”, you can start right away with any module of your master studies?

This advantage is key. It allows you to start right away. As there is no fix schedule, you don’t have to wait until any specific module start. You decide how you schedule your studies.

This is one of many advantages at the Lorange Institute. When do you take your decision?
