This page provides MBS staff, students and prospective students with information regarding measures related to the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and the respiratory disease COVID-19 at our university. (Date: 08/30/2022)

Policy and Code of Conduct at Munich Business School

Munich Business School has set up a crisis management team comprising university management and faculty, student, and staff representatives so that we can respond to any developments with swift, targeted action and take appropriate measures to contain the spread of SARS-CoV. 

Teaching and Exams

Teaching: Lectures and seminars in all study programs take place solely in presence at the MBS campus. Masks (medical face mask or FFP2) are mandatory to participate in face-to-face classes.

Exams: As things stand today, the final examinations will take place exclusively in person on campus. 

University Operations

Research and administrative operations will continue as usual until further notice. The MBS service facilities (International Center, Career and Alumni Relations Center) are open and accessible. However, some MBS staff are working from home. Before visiting MBS, please check whether the staff members you wish to see are indeed available and whether an in-person, telephone or virtual meeting can be arranged. For the time being, our preferred communication methods remain telephone, email and video calls.

In all public areas (e.g., corridors, staircases, lifts) of the Munich Business School building members of the university and guests are required to wear a medical face mask or FFP2 mask. Entering staff offices is only allowed with a mask and individually to ensure a safe distance. A mask isrequired at your seat in the classroom. Only presenters (faculty, students, staff) are exempt from the mask requirement during their presentation at their fixed standing or seated position, provided that a minimum distance of 1.5 m from other persons can be reliably ensured. You must also maintain a safe distance during group work and avoid sharing or exchanging equipment. It is vital to ventilate seminar rooms on a regular basis.
