Alles in allem bin ich sehr zufrieden mit der SBWL. Der Zeitaufwand ist nicht zu unterschätzen aber angemessen und man muss es mögen mit Excel zu arbeiten. Wenn man aktiv mitmacht und sich auf die Prüfungen vorbereitet kann man aus der SBWL außer fachspezifischem Wissen auch einige nützliche Excel Anwendungen mitnehmen. Wenn man in die Richtung SCM gehen möchte ist die SBWL eine super Basis um in die Materie hineinzuschnuppern.
