Leadership has been assessed by the accreditation, certification and quality assurance institute ACQUIN.

You can see the accreditation and assessment by the ACCREDITATION COUNCIL in the accreditation database (click here).


The overriding learning objective is the training, expansion and deepening of the participants’ range of skills to enable them to master leadership tasks. Students will internalize the idea of leadership as a philosophy and act according to a humanistic leadership model, taking into consideration scientific findings.

The Leadership course promotes the development of a personal leadership style. The focus is on enabling goal-oriented, value-driven, reflective leadership behaviour at all organisational levels (individual, team, corporate).

This training, expansion and consolidation of an individual's range of skills for handling leadership tasks is fundamental for (potential) managers in every profession and field of activity. Based on this objective, the course offers modern, personality-development forms of teaching and learning to acquire leadership competence. General leadership and management skills are required in many diverse professions and fields of activity. The course provides the techniques and methods of modern leadership.  By focusing on selected areas, more specialised knowledge and skills can be developed.

Target group

The master’s programme in Leadership is intended to give highly qualified university graduates who have already started their careers the opportunity to qualify for management positions.

As part of the first – and, at present, only – focus on healthcare, the master’s programme offers (prospective) managers from the healthcare sector a scientific specialisation with a focus on leadership competence.

Teaching methodology and presence phases

The courses take the special situation of working people into account. They are organised in such a way that they are compatible with full-time employment. Attendance phases are limited to an acceptable minimum. Lessons take place in small study groups in accordance with the latest scientific findings. We use innovative teaching and learning methods for this purpose.

Students benefit from interaction in interdisciplinary, cross-professional and cross-hierarchical participant groups, knowledge transfer by experts, a high level of practical transfer as well an orientation towards strengths and the future.


The lectures take place on the campus in Ansbach.

Admission requirements

Applicants with a university degree and some subsequent practical professional experience are eligible. Detailed information on the admission procedure and the admission requirements can be found in the Study and Examination Regulations (SPO) or Nicole Guggenberger will be happy to answer your questions.

Applicants who did not gain their study qualification at a German-speaking institution need to provide recognised proof of their German language skills (e.g. TestDaF at least level 4, DSH at least level 2).

Application deadlines

Winter semester: Application is possible from May 2 to July 15. The application period can be extended. Study begins on October 1.

Costs and funding


Fees are charged at Bavarian universities for part-time studies. These are calculated to cover the additional costs resulting from the special form of organisation required. The costs per semester are 2,700 € tuition fees (see Schedule of fees and charges) plus 72 € student union fee.
