WHU Brain Capital financing solution
For some of our Executive Education programs participants have the opportunity to apply for the WHU Brain Capital funding option, which finances up to 100% of tuition fees. In return, participants must make a commitment to reimburse the loan in its entirety over a certain period of time depending on each individual’s income level after the program.
Currently, this financing option is available for our General Management Program in Sports Business.
We currently offer different types of partial scholarships for women and emerging market leaders (25% and 50%).
Information for taxpayers in Germany:
