Furthermore, IBR faculty members draw on an average of 15 years of working experience in executive management positions and or as business consultants.

“Dr. Andreas Kelling together with other IBR professors helped me gain confidence in being an entrepreneur. With practical knowledge gained through IBR’s MBA program I was able to create, manage and successfully operate and sell several businesses in fields of waste transportation, logistics, real estate and now in promotional photography and video production.”
