The Business Process Management Executive Program (BPMEP) is a certificate study course that addresses line and middle management specialists to increase their BPM skills and empower them to better understand and handle BPM related situations and tasks. The study program is designed for managers on group level that are confronted with challenges of business process management and the needs to increase efficiency and foster innovations. To best align the course with the demanding schedules of today’s BPM professionals, and to still offer a personalised education and coaching, the key principle of the study program is “online, but personal”.

BPM has been proven to be a widely successful approach, to improving the efficiency of operations within and between organizations. At the same time, BPM can contribute to fostering organizational innovativeness in terms of leveraging innovative information technologies for business. BPM comprises activities such as the identification, design and modelling of business processes, their implementation, execution, monitoring, mining and control as well as their continuous and disruptive improvement. From an organizational perspective, BPM requires capabilities in areas like governance, methods, information technology, culture, people, and strategic alignment.

The Business Process Management Executive Program is offered by the University of Münster (Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität) in cooperation with the University of Liechtenstein.


The study certificate course is designed with working professionals in mind enabling participants to study and work at the same time. Distance learning and online courses allow professionals from all over Europe to participate regardless of their location. The program takes one year to complete. Exclusiveness is achieved by limiting participation to 20 people, and by offering individualised group sessions consisting of max 4 participants.

The program starts and ends with the Executive BPM Round table offering participants the opportunity for networking and experience exchange. The conference is followed by an input part of five online modules, in which participants of the program learn the key concepts of business process management, as well as a case part, in which participants can work on their own project and are coached individually by experts of the Academic Association for Business Process Management (AABBPM).
