Graduation Ceremony of SEPT MBA Program on 9 October 2020

Despite the Covid-19 pandemic and a limited operation of the university this year´s graduates of the international SEPT Master program will receive their certificates in a ceremony held in the university´s festival hall Paulinum at Augustusplatz. In this cohort 2018 - 2020 there are 30 graduates from 22 countries of Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America who finish their MBA in Small and Medium-Sized Enterprise Development. Additionally, 25 students from Vietnam could successfully complete their studies within the framework of a joint master program with the Hanoi University of Science and Technology and the Vietnamese German University of Ho Chi Minh City.

When it comes to their master´s thesis, the students of the MBA program in Leipzig had dealt with business promotion projects in their home countries as well as here in the Leipzig area. The different themes of the master´s thesis reveal that all SEPT graduates will easily be reintegrated in the job market in their home countries or in Germany to realize their projects and to promote the establishment of small and medium-sized enterprises worldwide.

For the upcoming cohorts the signs are good, says Prof. Dornberger, head of the master program: "We are very pleased that DAAD will continuously support the SEPT MBA program with 8 scholarships per cohort between 2022 and 2028. This corresponds to 56 full time scholarships for this period of time plus about 210,000 € for the supervision service of the master program."
