Excellent application situation for 2017 | 1,200 open spots in bachelor’s and master’s programs | Perfect combination of work and study | Outstanding career prospects | The application deadline is June 16, 2017

The Entrepreneurial School® awaits an exceptionally high number of applicants also for the 2017 fall semester. At this point, the applications received already exceed those of the previous year by more than 10%, when 3,600 students from 70 nations applied for one of the almost 1,200 spots available. Therefore, a total of approximately 4,000 applications are expected this year.

As yet the chances are good: the decision as to who is to be admitted will be made only after the last stage of application has been completed. Online applications for one of the popular spots must be received by MCI by Friday, June 16, 2017. The applicants face a three-stage admission procedure to assess their résumé and application letter, which should be as informative as possible, as well as their performance in the written entrance examination and personal interview.

26 bachelor’s and master’s programs will start in fall 2017. The programs with good prospects offered by MCI range from business and management sciences with an additional focus in tourism, law, information technology, communication, or media design, to nonprofit, social and health care management, and social work.

The promising fields of study available in the technology and life sciences sector are Biotechnology & Food Engineering, Environmental, Process & Energy Engineering, Industrial Engineering & Management, and Mechatronics with specializations in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Medical Engineering.

Part-time & online

Ever since MCI’s foundation more than 20 years ago the combination of work and study has been a priority: it is, as it were, part of the school’s genetic program. The entire range of study options offered by the Entrepreneurial School® is therefore based on a modern and job-friendly teaching approach, subject to continuous evaluation and development.

Twelve bachelor’s and master’s degree programs are available in part-time formats. Also, in individual full-time master’s programs, courses are organized in such a way as to facilitate the combination of work and study, i.e. in a job-friendly way.

In this regard, the field of online and mobile learning, in which MCI has meanwhile gathered considerable expertise, is gaining in importance. Already four study programs are available in this modern format. The intelligent mix of on-campus and online modules as well as interactive digital teaching materials and media (i.e. blended learning) enables both temporal and local flexibility and improved compatibility of study and family.
