GISMA Business School in Berlin, Germany
GISMA to offer University of Law master's degrees

Germany-based GISMA Business School is to offer four master's degrees in collaboration with the University of Law, a UK specialist degree provider.

The new programmes will be offered at GISMA's recently opened Berlin campus from October 2017, with the initial course options of: MSc Corporate Financial Management; MSc International Marketing; MSc Strategic Business Management; and MSc Leadership and Human Resource Management.


Both GISMA Business School and the University of Law are part of the Global University Systems chain of private sector higher education providers.


Dr Steve Priddy, Dean of GISMA Business School, said, "We are pleased to announce a suite of new postgraduate degrees in Berlin in collaboration with a world-class institution, the University of Law, which is at the heart of GISMA's mission - to offer an internationally recognised academic management education in Germany."


He said he believed the partnership would create a new kind of business degree. "Looking at a wide spectrum of business activities, graduates from MSc programmes will be well placed to become competent business leaders comfortable in navigating both the British and European markets in changing commercial landscape post-Brexit."


Dr Thorsten Thiel, Managing Director of GISMA, added, "In Germany, alongside the support students receive from our well-established careers team, students can apply for a post-study working visa for up to 18 months upon completion of their postgraduate course. This means they can stay and look for a job, whilst immediately applying their newly acquired skills in the German labour market."


Professor Andrea Nollent, Vice-Chancellor and CEO of the University of Law, said the collaboration was a natural step for the institution as it expanded into new global markets.


GISMA Business School was established in 1999 with former German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder among its founders, while the University of Law dates back to 1903.
