Your course content
What you will learn

The Business Administration degree programme with a focus on International Business provides you with comprehensive knowledge from many areas of internationally operating companies. Import ("global sourcing") and export, international production, international human resources management, company management with subsidiaries in different countries, controlling foreign companies with figures (investment controlling) and much more. Questions of dealing with other cultures ("intercultural competencies") are also addressed in the degree programme. You get to know important theories and methods and can classify and, if necessary, apply them. Exciting insights can also be gained by getting to know the international rules of the game that are set by economic policy or globally active organisations (e.g. WHO or OECD). During your studies, you will be optimally prepared for employment in internationally active companies as a future specialist or manager and acquire professional, methodical, social and practical skills.

Your career prospects
Our innovative approach that pays off

Internationally active companies are always on the lookout for young professionals with a degree in business administration who can work with them to master the tasks and challenges of the future. The possible fields of employment are broadly diversified, both in terms of sectors and specialist functions. Internationally active sectors include mechanical engineering, the automotive industry, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, and the service sector. Specialist functions are in demand in purchasing, human resources, sales or accounting, to name a few examples. The spice of the job can be the interaction with people from many cultures. If things go particularly well and you are open to challenges, your future employer may even send you abroad.

Flexibility at its best - Our bridge semester

In addition to the high-quality transfer of knowledge in teaching according to the CORE principle and thus in addition to the training of technical, social and methodical competence application, the personal development of the students is also important to our university. Therefore, we have now introduced the so-called bridging semester in order to offer a maximum of flexibility for exactly this personal development. How does this work and what are the requirements? Quite simply.

You have reached 150 CP in your Bachelor's degree program? Perfect. We now offer you two options:

  1. You continue your studies and graduate as soon as possible
  2. You take a semester break and use this time to find a job, do internships, get a taste of companies, learn languages, acquire cultural competencies or whatever enhances your skills. You do not have to pay any monthly fees for this semester. Of course, your studies will continue for one more semester.

You can use this bridging semester as a bridging semester at the earliest after reaching 150 CPs and at the earliest after finishing the 5th semester in terms of personal and professional development and remain enrolled. A fee is charged for this semester, but the last semester is then free of charge. The bridging semester is limited to one semester. You can indicate yourself if you have reached the required CP before the bridging semester.

The possibility to apply for a semester off remains. The bridging semester is a parallel existing attractive alternative.
