Teaching in Block 6

I have over thirty years’ experience of teaching and examining at leading business schools in the UK, continental Europe and Asia. Throughout my time with SRH Heidelberg it has been my pleasure to teach exceptional students from all continents. I have been particularly impressed by the care and opportunities for personal development provided to all students by the University. The combination of small class sizes and the CORE learning principles contribute to the most effective and enjoyable learning environment.

For us, internationalization is not just a buzzword – at our university, it is something that is really lived. We maintain a close network with more than 50 partner universities all over the world and encourage our students to go abroad to study or do internships. Within Europe, we participate in the ERASMUS program.

After successful completion of first year courses, master students can choose between a semester of study at a partner university or apply for an MBA degree from a partner university. The additional length of study time for each MBA varies, and the programmes can be either online or by attendance on campus. There are no additional tuition fees whilst attending courses at the partner university.
