When do MBA courses start in India

TÜV Rheinland starts MBA in India

Sword sweep

TÜV Rheinland wants to enter the MBA market through its subsidiary TÜV Rheinland India next year. The courses are to be validated by the British Teesside University.

The aim is to start with 25 students in 2018 and then increase the number, said the managing director of TÜV Rheinland India, Thomas Fuhrmann, after signing a memorandum of understanding with Teesside University in Bangalore. The tuition fees should correspond to those of other German business schools - although it is unclear which schools he is referring to.

A modular MBA International Business Management, an MBA Energy Management and an MBA Sustainable Business Management are to be offered. The target group are interested parties who are striving for a position as manager or senior manager. The lessons are to take place in Cologne and Dubai. The courses offered are managed by the TÜV branch in Bangalore.

Experts from Europe and professors from Teesside University will teach. The British university is so far rather unknown in the international MBA market and is not accredited by the AMBA, which is relevant for Great Britain. The validation of the degree programs makes people sit up and take notice. This means that the university regards the TÜV offers as equivalent to its own courses and awards its degrees for appropriate fees. This practice has fallen into disrepute in the past. A few years ago, the University of Wales stopped its controversial validations, including at the Allfinanz Akademie in Hamburg.
