Program Structure

The International Management Bachelor Program elaborates business competencies and managerial education to an international level over seven semesters.

We also teach classes on communications and presentation techniques as we believe they are key to successfully cope with the fast paced corporate world. During the course of study, English is the primary language used in the classroom and workplace. In addition, students are required to study one or more additional foreign languages (French, Spanish, Chinese, etc.) in each of the first three semesters.

Studying abroad further enriches our student's academic horizons and prepares them for international deployments in their future careers. The internship semester puts learning outcomes to pratical use and is a great opportunity for students to have a first hands-on and build a professional network.  Further we offer various Career Tracks (see Program Highlights) for students who wish to specialize and deepen their knowledge in a particular field. Last but not least current students and graduates can rely on a strong alumni base with top professionals in a wide range of functions and industries.

All this enables our students to develop a truly unique and individual profile which is highly valued by employers and graduate schools. Course Descpription >

Semesters 1 and 2

In the first year particular emphasis is placed on teamwork, presentation skills, information technology, business methods and foreign language acquisition. The first two semesters also cover the functional areas of business (economics, logistics, marketing, accounting, etc.). All courses are taught and examined completely in English with the exception of the foreign-language electives. Foreign students are also required to take German language courses that span both semesters.

Semester 3

The third semester is almost exclusively designed to cover the international aspects of the functional areas of business: accounting, economics, finance, business law and marketing. Information technology skills and foreign language acquisition are further emphasized. All of the courses are taught and examined in English with the exception of the foreign language elective. Foreign students are required to take a German language course.

Semester 4 and 5

In the fourth or fifth semester, the students work as interns either abroad or in an international function at a German company of their choice. In addition to gaining business and foreign language skills, the internship helps the students with their career plans. They get first-hand experience in a company and an industry where they may wish to work later. Our graduates are often employed at the same organizations where they have done their internships. Also in the fourth or fifth semester, students have the opportunity to widen their academic horizon at a foreign university. In addition to European universities, Deggendorf has partnership programms with universities all around the globe including Hong Kong, Buenos Aires and San Diego. This semester is designed to broaden the students' management perspective in their field of interest and improve their understanding of foreign systems and cultures.

Semester 6 and 7

In the final semesters students take capstone seminars and case-study courses in the areas of international management, finance, economics and managing across cultures. They also make their first contributions to the scientific world by conducting independent research and study that culminates in a Bachelor Thesis.

Life Science Informatics
Die Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Technologie produziert in kürzester Zeit große Datenmengen. Das humane Genom, Epigenom und das damit verbundene Transkriptom zu analysieren und zu verstehen stellt eine immer größer werdende Herausforderung dar. Daher ist es von Bedeutung, eine funktionierende und belastbare Schnittstelle zwischen Biologen, Chemikern, Medizinern und Pharmazeuten zu generieren, da Forschung im Bereich der Lebenswissenschaften längst nicht nur im Labor stattfindet. Die Datenmengen, die etwa beim Entschlüsseln von menschlichem, tierischem oder pflanzlichem Erbgut entstehen, müssen verarbeitet und miteinander in Beziehung gesetzt werden, um sie nutzbar zu machen: Das ist Aufgabe der Life Science Informatik.
