      countries with active alumni

      startups founded by HHL alumni

      Pamela Taylor
      Director, Employer Branding & Talent Acquisition, Bertelsmann, MBA alumna

      After seeing Bertelsmann’s on-campus presentation at HHL and learning how interested they are in international profiles, I approached the company representative at the get-together afterwards to learn about internship opportunities in HR. One thing leads to another, and I ended up landing an internship in Talent Management at Bertelsmann’s corporate headquarters. This internship turned into a job offer. My first day of work was actually coming to HHL to do a company presentation – talk about full circle! Several years later I’m now Director, Employer Branding & Talent Acquisition, and still visiting HHL once a year to get to know the latest generation of students.

      Annemarie Heyl
      Founder - Kale&Me GmbH, MBA alumna

      At HHL, I learned how to form a strong team by bringing together different people with different backgrounds and skill sets. HHL’s diverse MBA community was pivotal in teaching me the value of multiple perspectives.

      Sandeep Patil
      Product Owner, Volkswagen AG, MBA alumnus

      I believe without my MBA it would have been difficult for me to stand out among all other applicants. The HHL MBA gave me confidence that I would be able to perform well in the role at Volkswagen and this definitely shone through during my interview.

      Rodrigo Aviles
      Consultant – Customer Engagement, Siemens Advanta Consulting, MBA alumnus

      My advice? Accept who and what you don’t know, as often in your career, you will be faced with questions and uncertainties. It’s wise to say you don’t know, and it’s perfectly fine that you don’t. Learn something new. Push yourself in areas that you’ve not yet explored, incite and search for constant learning.

      Binh Vu
      Venture Capital Analyst, Brandenburg Kapital GmbH, MBA alumna

      It is never too late to start pursuing what is important to you. Being a mother in your mid-20s does not mean that your education and career end. Don’t think you have to trade-off between career and family life.

      The MBA program for your success in the management of the future!

      Business is changing at an increasing rate, and with change come new challenges. Management and leadership in times of digital transformation demand new approaches.

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to explore new countries and new cultures and to expand your own international network. 

                      Double Degree Option

                      Aside from your term abroad, you have the option of receiving an additional degree from one of our global network of partner universities.

                        HHL Professors

                        Trained by leading experts and selected practitioners

                        Throughout the MBA program, you will be supported by our exceptional HHL professors. Here you are never just a number; our professors are always approachable and have your personal growth at heart.

                          Management Consultant, Siemens Management Consulting, MBA alumnus

                          HHL differentiates in the sense that it makes you a leader. Rather than being trained to be the best employee, we are trained each day to be the best employer. Motivation is not to be the employee of the month but rather to be the one who decides who shall be the employee of the month. This difference is subtle but astoundingly deep. HHL explores the leadership sides of you and it is complete because you are not coached to spill out jargons like ‘Achieve’, ‘Impress’, or ‘Leverage’ but rather how to make informed decisions in Finance, Strategy, Marketing etc.

                          Sales Program Manager VW Group at SSL, Continental AG, MBA alumna

                          On some days, a class at HHL feels like an orchestra – you learn so much from your peers and your colleagues, where the professor seems to play just a conductor. Apart from a lot of other benefits such a transformative study program can bring, what separates HHL from the rest is this unique ability to bring together such a diverse group of people in one place.

                          Head of Supply Chain Operations - LHC - DE/CH, Henkel, MBA alumna

                          The game changer in my life was the international experience I gained from my time at HHL. I cannot think of a better preparation for an international career than opening up for diversity in different dimensions with classmates from around the world and professors coming from different countries.

                          Jonas Pinnhammer
                          Consultant, Roland Berger, MBA alumnus

                          I visited the HHL Campus Day and I was totally flashed from the spirit, from the people – you could feel that everyone was having fun and that they wanted to do something, to move something. People were living the entrepreneurial spirit. This convinced me to go to HHL.

                          Ron Gabay
                          Head of Innovation & Venture Design, Joy Ventures, MBA alumnus

                          For me, being exposed to different and opposing cognitive styles is key -this is also true for my MBA experience. It helps me not only to understand different people, but it also leads me to reflect and understand better my own thinking style, approach and potential blind spots.

                          Sharique Husain
                          CEO and Co-Founder, CONXAI, MBA alumnus

                          It was during my MBA that I realized managing business is not about mathematics. It’s all about people and aspirations.

                          #6 worldwide for innovation

                          HHL offers one of the most innovative MBA programs in the world and received an ‘outstanding’ score in the AméricaEconomia MBA Ranking 2021, which places HHL closely behind world-leading institutions such as Stanford Graduate School of Business and Yale School of Management when it comes to innovation.

                          In vogue: Living and learning in Leipzig!

                          Leipzig is open, international and vibrant. Located at the crossroads of historic European trade routes, Leipzig prides itself on its 1,000-year tradition of commercial vitality and its reputation as a meeting place for trade, science and the arts. Beyond its modern infrastructure, what makes Germany’s fastest-growing city so popular and dynamic is its rapidly expanding economy, housing world-famous brands such as Porsche, BMW, DHL and Amazon. HHL, the first “Handelshochschule” in German-speaking Europe, was established back in 1898 and therefore laid the foundation for Leipzig’s profound management education early on.

                          Numerous cafés, bars, clubs as well as parks, canals and lakes invite you to enjoy a welcome break from your studies. Plus, Berlin, and all that it has to offer, is just one hour away. And the best of it all? Living expenses in Leipzig are affordable for students!
