International Approach

Key aspects of the BA in Business Management include courses providing a basis in Business English and a supervised semester abroad at one of our partner universities. A large number of lectures in English, the learning of a second foreign language as well as an organized semester abroad at a partner university are integral components of the Business Management degree program. They serve to deepen specialized qualifications as well as improve social and intercultural skills. A minimum ten-week traineeship abroad or with a local, internationally-operating company enables students to put their acquired expertise into practice.
