Balanced WHU Double MBA degree candidates are able to pay tuition (around RMB100,000 in 2014) and associated fees to the home institution separately. 

Please take note that students must apply for a German student visa through the APS. The APS requires that students undergo an examination process wherein they must successfully complete an academic interview before applying for a visa. Therefore, more preparation time is needed. Students should plan accordingly and begin their preparation no later than when they receive an offer of acceptance from WHU. Please contact Guanghua MBA Office for detailed information.
