HALBAN The German University of Technology in Oman (GUtech) has launched a part-time double-degree MBA programme in cooperation with Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU) in Austria. The study-programme will start this year. “The MBA programme came to complement the undergraduate programmes that we are currently offering and to fill a gap in the post graduate market in Oman,” said Prof. Dr. Heba Aziz, Dean of the Faculty of Business and Economics at GUtech and Academic Director of the newly launched MBA programme.
Established in 1898 and founded as the Imperial Transport University, Vienna University of Economics and Business is one of the largest and leading business universities in Europe. The university has a well-established, very international student and academic body. “International mobility of faculty and students is part of our institution. Working on an educational level together with Oman will enhance our cooperation on a business level as well,” said Prof. Dr. Barbara Stöttinger, Dean of Vienna University of Economics and Business, the WU Executive Academy. The MBA will cover general management topics such as entrepreneurship, finance, marketing and logistics. “The MBA has been designed for students who have demanding full-time jobs and are in managerial positions. We are looking forward to linking the Omani society and GUtech with Austria and enable the MBA students to study a modul at our university. GUtech is planning to offer the MBA on part-time over a period of 18 months; modules will be taught four days a week from Thursday to Sunday. The MBA will offer specialisations in the fields of logistics, tourism and entrepreneurship,” said Dr. Astrid Kleinhanns-Rollé, Managing Director of the WU Executive Academy.
