Courses are held in German, so that candidates should have at least intermediate-level command of German (C1 or DSH 2). The Klaus Murmann Fellowship Programme is centred on a variety of political, economic and social issues with corporate responsibility being an underlying theme throughout the entire course.

The preparatory course is a special scholarship programme by the Klaus Murmann Fellowship Programme for candidates who have obtained a degree in teaching.
