Shipping (MBA) - Financing

Shipping (MBA) Financing

Hapag Lloyd

Financing of the Study Course

The course fees amount to 19.800 Euro for the 12-months fast track and 24-months regular track programme (living and travel expenses not included).

We offer an early bird discount of 10% off the full tuition fee if you apply no later than 31 May.

Financing with the Assistance from the Employer

The MBA Shipping is designed to train students for management tasks in companies and to lay the foundation for success. This is attractive to students and companies alike, which is why many employers support their employees both in financial terms and by granting additional free time for the MBA programme.

Financing with the HSBA Scholarship

It is a matter of particular concern to HSBA to ensure that highly qualified and motivated candidates can attend the Master's degree programme despite the costs. Thus, HSBA supports particularly gifted applicants who require financial assistance in different ways.

Next to the early bird discount of 10%, HSBA scholarships for 25% and 50% of the course fees are offered.
