Low-scale supersymmetry, in particular the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM), was for a long time the favourite candidate for BSM physics. However, the unsuccessful searches for supersymmetric states at the LHC put this idea under increasing pressure. I’ll briefly summarize the status of the MSSM in light of recent LHC results. Afterwards, I will discuss advantages of ideas to go beyond the MSSM: non-holomorphic soft-terms, R-parity violation, singlet extensions and Dirac gauginos.
