There are also two courses in your second year as the final required elements of your MBA experience at Nuremberg Schule:  

Model-Based Decision Making In Practice (Capstone)

This course provides students with the opportunity to apply model-based decision making to a current business problem. Students will use the models and modeling skills introduced in your first year, and built upon to define, structure, and analyze a recent or ongoing business case. The Capstone course represents the culmination of the MBA curriculum as it allows students to experience in real-time and through a real-world problem how the explicit and systematic use of models can improve business decision-making.


Businesses operate within a complex environment of legal, ethical and governance-related issues. This course focuses on the role that managers play in not only recognizing these issues, but also in resolving them effectively and efficiently. Ethical behaviour starts with management and an organization built on sound principles serves as a benchmark by which all stakeholder interests are measured. Through “active” case analysis, this course will examine ethical decision making and its connection to the principles of good governance.
