What are key characteristics you are looking for in applicants?

We are looking for young executives, who already have a first university degree or equivalent from an accredited institution, as well as at least 3 years of professional full-time work experience and fluency in English. Otherwise you need a successful completion of a continuing education program, comprising at least 60 ECTS, as well as 6 years of professional full-time work experience (including a minimum of 3 years in the respective area) and fluency in English. Outstanding applicants need to provide a higher education entrance qualification (A-Levels or equivalent) as well as individually assessed proof of capabilities to undertake university studies and a strong command of written and spoken English.

Admission process: How does it work and how long does it take?

Once you have applied for the Liechtenstein MBA, the admissions committee will review your application and get back to you within a couple of business days. Should you meet all programme requirements and should your application convince the committee that you are able to make a contribution to the programme, a personal interview (in Liechtenstein or on the phone) will be scheduled.


What language certification is required?

The International MBA programme is completely taught in English; therefore in-depth knowledge of the English language is essential. Students who come from non-English speaking countries are required to prove English proficiency by submitting the results of a TOEFL or IELTS certificate. Otherwise we will examine your English capabilities in an additional interview with a linguistics professional (not required for English native speakers, graduates of higher education programmes conducted in English and holders of a valid TOEFL/IELTS certificate).


Is there an application deadline?

No, there is no application deadline. But the sooner you apply the more scholarship options are available for you.


Can I work next to my studies?

Yes. Since the International MBA is a part-time programme with 11 one-week modules within 15-18 months, you are still able to work full-time.
