Executive Education


Professionals have the possibility to choose from a wide range of courses within our degree programs, which can be taken on an individual basis and without student status. Courses are delivered in English at the equivalent of 3 or 5 ECTS and take place on Fridays and Saturdays.

Leverage the opportunity to network with other GBS students and gain focussed knowledge where you need it, without committing to an entire degree program. Participants receive a GBS Executive Education certificate upon completion of the course.

There are two main things which make returning for Open Programs such a valuable and worthwhile experience. The first is being back on campus after such a long time: meeting the current students, discussing with them, and also getting a whole new impetus once again - the whole experience was just so pleasant. The second is the level of quality in the courses – the faculty teaching are absolute experts.
