Letzter Abschluss

The Tübingen School of Business and Economics will prepare the business leaders of tomorrow for the challenge of successfully doing business in and with these fastest growing economic areas of the world. The Tübingen M.Sc. in International Business is a degree program highly sought after by applicants and greatly respected by employers. Since 2012, we offer this program which is unique in German graduate education: students will study the M. Sc. in International Business in their first year at the University of Tübingen and in their second year at one or two of the most prestigious universities either in East Asia or in Africa.

We are still extending our partnerships, but already have firm exchange agreements with some of the most prestigious universities in East Asia and Africa:

  • Peking University, Beijing
  • Renmin University, Beijing
  • University of International Business and Economics, Beijing
  • National Taiwan University, Taipei
  • Southwestern University of Finance and Economics, Chengdu
  • Waseda University, Tokyo
  • Rikkyo University, Tokyo
  • Doshisha University, Kyoto
  • Yonsei University, Seoul
  • Ewha Womans University, Seoul
  • Hanyang University, Seoul
  • University of Cape Town, South Africa
  • Makerere University Kampala, Uganda
  • University of Ghana, Accra

With this program, the Tübingen School of Business and Economics offers a unique opportunity for highly motivated Bachelor graduates with a special interest in East Asia or Africa to experience an exciting study period in one of the two regions with a fascinating blend of academic and cultural learning.


Having completed their first year of studies in Tübingen, students complete their Master’s degree spending their second year at one or two of our partner universities. They continue their studies attending management courses as official exchange students at the Business Schools or Faculties of these universities. Students also write their Master thesis while abroad.

In their first year at Tübingen University students of the M.Sc. in International Business can choose among the same management courses as their peers studying the M.Sc. in General Management. In addition, as for the East Asia track, they will take pertinent country-specific and language courses. In their second year, students will continue their management studies at one or two of the partner universities. The courses at the partner universities will be taught in English; optionally, students may continue taking language courses in the host country language. While studying at the partner universities the students write their Master thesis.

The M. Sc. in International Business is designed as a 4-semester program, taught according to the European Credit Transfer System. Successful completion requires students to achieve a total of 120 ECTS credits (including the Master thesis of 18 ECTS credits).

Ph. D. track

The program may be completed on a PhD track, preparing students for an academic career. This effectively puts you on a fast track to a doctoral degree or Ph. D. Completing this track requires you to obtain 18 ECTS credits from Ph. D. track courses that take students to the frontier of academic research. Moreover, you will need to fulfill the Master thesis requirement by writing an academic paper that may serve as the first part of your Ph. D. thesis.

Since 2013, the school offers a new taught Ph.D. program covering Economics, Finance and Business Studies.


This Master’s degree program is the ideal preparation for graduates aspiring to an international career in the globalizing business world. With the ever growing importance of East Asia and Africa in the international economy, employers are in great need to find high potential recruits with knowledge and expertise about conducting business in these areas. The M.Sc. in International Business offers a unique opportunity to fill this demand that is bound to rise further! Our graduates are in an exceptional position, due to their academic expertise, their international experience in these exciting regions of the world, and their profound intercultural competencies. As such, they are in an ideal starting position for a most promising career not only in the business world across sectors, industries and functions, but also at international or national governmental or non-governmental organizations.


Admission to the M. Sc. in International Business requires a Bachelor’s degree amounting to 180 ECTS in Business Studies or Economics or a comparative degree with excellent grades. Applicants are expected to have solid intermediate level knowledge in Business Studies, Economics and Statistics. In addition, applicants must be fluent in German and English. Having already studied Business or Economics with an East Asia or Africa focus is a clear advantage.
