Course of study

The program provides students with a comprehensive understanding of business administration in an international context. Students acquire the skillset to succeed in an international environment in business, government or academia. Particular attention is given to the growing importance of multinational operations and to a comparative approach in the study of business strategies and policies.

The program usually takes six semesters and teaching is conducted in English.

Compulsory courses

The compulsory component of the program includes three subject areas

  • International Business (40 ECTS) provides the basics of business administration with respect to an international context.
  • International Economics (20 ECTS) provides an introduction to basic economic models and methods, as well as key concepts in international economics and economic policy.
  • International Politics, Law, and Society (20 ECTS) extends the perspective to include a view on institutions relevant for addressing international issues.
  • The subject-specific perspective is supplemented by the cross-cutting core area Tools (15 ECTS) dedicated to statistics and data analysis, which provides the essentials for quantitative analysis.

The core area Reflection (10 ECTS) broadens the perspective to practical aspects in the current international business environment, and enables students to practice intercultural competencies through participation in various forms of cross-cultural training. From an academic perspective, students learn how to contribute to debates through their own papers and presentations, but also by responding to the work of their peers.

Detailed information regarding individual courses can be researched in the download section, where you can find the module handbook and the study plan/curriculum.

Elective courses

  • Electives (25 ECTS): This comprises 5 courses of 5 ECTS each that can be freely chosen from a variety of courses concerning topics in international business, international economic studies, and international politics. Detailed information regarding the specific courses can be found on the right side of the study program's webpage in the download section, in the module handbook and the study plan.
  • Languages (15 ECTS): Each student must acquire fluency in a chosen language, e.g. English, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Chinese. German can also count towards this requirement for non-native speakers.
  • Study Abroad (20 ECTS): Studying abroad enables students to obtain first-hand experience and obtain insights into how business issues are viewed and discussed in another country and another university. Students can choose among partner universities around the world.

Bachelor thesis

The final Bachelor thesis (15 ECTS) is based on independent work on a given problem in a chosen subject area. In the bachelor’s thesis seminar students discuss their own and other contributions to subject-related research.
