Our partners

To ensure students at the Professional School of Business & Technology receive the best possible training, we collaborate with selected partners – some abroad – whom we would like to present to you here:

Graduate School of Business – Brisbane, Australia

Participants on the 3-semester part-time and full-time programmes MBA in International Business Management & Leadership generally study abroad at the Graduate School of Business in Brisbane.

It is one of the top graduate business schools in the country and amongst the best 100 worldwide. Brisbane is home to many major Australian companies, and numerous international companies have branches in the city. Students on the MBA programme at Kempten attend the regular part-time seminars scheduled for the given semester on strategy and marketing alongside Australian and other international students.

Vöhlinschloss Higher Education Centre – Illertissen, Germany

Some professional development programmes are run at Vöhlinschloss Higher Education Centre in Illertissen, near Ulm. The special atmosphere of this Renaissance castle uniquely embellishes participants’ learning experience. Besides optimally arranged seminar rooms, the generous grounds present the ideal setting for further discussions or quiet contemplation.

    Directions & parking

    Illertissen is in southern Germany, approx. 100 km from Stuttgart. Travelling from Stuttgart, take the A8 towards Munich, changing onto the A7 near Ulm. From the A7, take the exit for Illertissen and leave the roundabout as signposted towards “Vöhlinschloss”. If travelling by train, use the service from Ulm to Memmingen (Kempten/Oberstdorf), which takes approx. 20 minutes. There are also direct trains from Kempten (approx. 40 mins). You can find a site map right here, and a guide to parking spaces in the vicinity of the castlehere.

    National Institute of Development Administration – Bangkok, Thailand

    The MBA in International Business Management & Leadership includes 3 weeks of studying abroad at the National Institute of Development Administration (NIDA). The NIDA was founded 50 years ago by the King of Thailand to ensure high-quality training for managers in the Thai government and industry. The current cabinet of the government of Thailand includes several NIDA graduates. The NIDA specialises exclusively in masters programmes, which it runs on a state-of-the-art campus on the outskirts of Bangkok, with direct water-bus connections to the city centre.

    Southwestern University of Finance and Economics – Chengdu, China

    The Southwestern University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE) in Chengdu is one of China’s top universities specialising in finance, economics and management. SWUFE is based in the city of Chengdu, the engine of western China’s development and the fourth-largest air travel hub in all China.

    All full-time MBA students can opt to attend the two-week summer school run by SWUFE in place of the course on “Intercultural Behaviour”. Our MBA students have to pay for their flights, nothing else.
