Founded in 1409 as the second university in Germany, Leipzig University has always been committed to the principle of universitas litterarum.
The University consists of 14 faculties with 128 institutes. 35,000 persons research, teach and study at the university. An even wider choice of individual study programmes leads to Master degrees
and teaching qualifications. The courses offered at the university cover traditional subjects such as law, medicine, economics, social and natural sciences as well as new fields of academic interest like environmental sciences, media and communication studies. This wide range of study programmes reflects the needs of the various industries settled in and around Leipzig, a city which is frequently described as both a commercial and a cultural centre. Currently, close to 29,000 students are enrolled at the Universität Leipzig.
Course focus :
Our international MBA programme specialising in small and medi- um-sized enterprise development is a postgraduate programme that combines research with practice.
The two-year degree programme focuses predominantly on economic issues, which range from supporting small businesses coping with survival to promoting innovative, dynamic enterprises that can deal with intelligent decision-making tools and methodologies.
Special issues addressed are the identification of innovation possibil- ities inside SMEs and their growth potential as well as new concepts for promoting SMEs and generating positive multiplier effects on their business environments. Moreover, socio-economic and political considerations, such as securing employment and generating income for the majority of the population, are also part of the programme.

The Master programme targets upcoming professionals and resource persons with practical experience in promoting and/or managing small and medium-sized enterprises.
