International Business (Bachelor)

You want to get to know the world. You enjoy exploring cultural customs in international business because you know: "In the UK they are too polite to be honest, in Germany they are too honest to be polite." ;-). Then our International Business course is just right for you.

Courses on the basics of economics will initially be held in German. From the third semester onwards, when we have refreshed your Business English (from level B2/C1), the proportion in English is constantly increasing. Now the elective modules "International Business and Economics and Society" are the focus of the course.

In a coaching module we prepare you for an integrated semester abroad, e. g. at a partner university in Scotland, Sweden, Estonia, France, Kazakhstan, Korea, China, Mexico or the USA. Would you also like to complete your internship and bachelor project in the international business world? We support you! The world stands before you! What are you waiting for?
