“The Pre-Master’s gave me the necessary tools and contacts to feel confident and shine during my master’s program. It was a demanding program with high expectations, especially for those of us from other disciplines. With genuine commitment, stamina and the right attitude, I successfully switched from classical music to the field of business and finance.”
Angela Ruiz, graduate of the Pre-Master’s program and alumna of the International Business master’s program
“Studying a master’s in business despite not having a bachelor’s in business was the right decision for me. Before my master’s program, I had studied teaching in Bamberg. After a few months of intensive learning, I got to grips with the fundamentals of business. It was a very challenging period, but it was definitely worthwhile. I would recommend it to anyone. Trust yourself: you can do it, too!”
Felix Ewald, Head of Marketing and Sales
This program gives you the opportunity to earn admission to a master’s program in business despite holding an unrelated undergraduate degree.
The Pre-Master’s program is ideally tailored to the master’s programs at MBS. You will finish your Pre-Master’s program in August, so you can start your master’s studies straight after in September.
A consecutive master’s program is a course of study that follows on from a related bachelor’s degree, exploring the subject in more detail. It builds on the content of the bachelor’s degree. A bachelor’s degree in the same subject, or a closely related subject, is therefore an admission requirement for a consecutive master’s.
Example: You studied business at undergraduate level, earned your bachelor’s degree, and would now like to enroll on the master’s program in International Marketing and Brand Management at MBS.
A non-consecutive master’s program is a course of study that does not directly follow on from a related bachelor’s degree and instead covers other, unrelated topics. It does not build on the content of the bachelor’s degree. Admission to a non-consecutive master’s therefore only requires a bachelor’s degree; the subject does not matter.
Example: You studied IT at undergraduate level, earned your bachelor’s degree, and would now like to enroll on the master’s program in International Business at MBS.
A Pre-Master’s is a preparatory course that enables students with a bachelor’s degree to meet the requirements for a master’s in a different subject. It covers the fundamentals, providing the skills and knowledge students need to keep pace with classmates who already have existing knowledge of business studies.
Example: You studied IT at undergraduate level, earned your bachelor’s degree, and would now like to enroll on the master’s program in International Business at MBS. The Pre-Master’s program helps you to meet the admission requirements for master’s-level study.
Applicants to the Pre-Master’s program must have an above-average university degree in any subject area, awarded by a state-recognized university. In addition, applicants must have excellent English skills (TOEFL iBT min. 85/IELTS 6.5/ELS 112) as the program is taught entirely in English.
The two-stage application process for the Pre-Master’s program at Munich Business School comprises a written application and a face-to-face interview. Applications for the Pre-Master’s program are only accepted in conjunction with an application for a master’s program at MBS.
The program takes three months of full-time study (May–August)

After your master’s degree, you will be able to work in many different areas. We recommend giving thought to your preferred career before starting the Pre-Master’s program, so that you can choose suitable concentrations during your master’s program.
If you aspire to a career in marketing, we recommend you choose our International Business master’s program with the International Marketing concentration or our International Marketing and Brand Management master’s program. Studying one of these courses will teach you how to engage and excite customers with the right marketing messages – and persuade them to purchase a product or service.
If you would like to work in project management and digitalization in the future, we recommend our International Business master’s program with the Digital Business Management concentration. Studying this course will teach you how to drive forward digitalization projects and achieve lasting results.
