Policy and Code of Conduct at Munich Business School

The MBS has set up a crisis management team consisting of the university management and representatives of the professors, students, and staff in order to be able to react quickly and purposefully to changes in the situation and to derive appropriate measures to contain the further spread of SARS-CoV-2.

Teaching and Exams

Teaching: Lectures in the fall semester 2020 take place in a hybrid teaching concept that combines pure online components with classroom components. All face-to-face courses will be transmitted live online as well, so that students currently abroad and those with health restrictions can join classes virtually. There are special regulations for the MBA and DBA programs, which will be communicated by the academic directors.

Exams: As things stand today, the exams at the end of the fall semester 2020 will take place in presence at MBS in compliance with all hygiene regulations, provided that the COVID-19 situation remains stable.

University Operations

Research and administrative operations will continue as usual until further notice. The service facilities of MBS (International Center, Career Center, Alumni Relations Center) are open and accessible. Some of the MBS employees are still working from home. Therefore, before visiting MBS, please inquire whether the employees can be reached in person and whether a meeting can take place in person, by telephone or virtually. The preferred method of contact remains phone/e-mail/video chat per now. 
Counselling and Interviews will also continue to take place preferably by telephone or video chat. 

Masks are mandatory in all areas of the Munich Business School building for university members and guests. The maximum usable number of seats in the seminar rooms, reading rooms and the library is clearly marked at the entrance of each room and must be observed. In the rooms it is marked which places must be kept free in order to keep the safety distance of 1.5 meters. Only on the marked seats in the seminar and work rooms and in the role of the speaker in front of the class may the mouth and nose masks be removed. It is not permitted to change the seat and table positions in the seminar room. The minimum distance must also be maintained for group and partner work and the exchange of work equipment must be avoided. The seminar rooms must be ventilated regularly, the cooling system must not be used. In all courses, participant lists of the physically present students must be kept.
