Continuing education is a key component of corporate culture at Würth. In addition to commercial, logistics and technical apprenticeships, Würth also offers twelve Bachelor’s degree courses in these areas in collaboration with Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University.
Akademie Würth was established in 1991. It facilitates individual further training and lifelong learning extending beyond initial vocational training. This is why Akademie Würth Business School offers all Würth Group employees academic continuous education programs for working professionals. The programs are also open to all interested individuals who do not work for the Würth Group, with a large number of companies taking advantage of them. In cooperation with several distance learning universities, Akademie Würth Business School offers bachelor’s degree courses such as business administration or industrial engineering, and master’s degree programs such as the Master of Science in Digital Management and Transformation.
Together with the University of Louisville in Kentucky, USA, Akademie Würth Business School has also been offering a part-time Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Global Business for working professionals since 2001. This MBA degree is awarded by the University of Louisville after 13.5 months of study. During this relatively short period of time, two stays in Louisville give participants the opportunity to experience studying at a very research-intensive, renowned American university without them having to interrupt their professional career.
