International Business

Crossing borders, connecting people and markets

With a broad-based career-integrated Business Administration course the International Business specialisation offers our students an excellent preparation for the international and intercultural world of work as this is integrated into the theoretical and practical phases during their studies. Gain an initial insight from the following film, which was made by students of the 6th semester.

Be successful all over the world: with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration and work experience

The central content is formed by the fundamentals of economics and international business. The course also focuses on improving foreign language skills and developing intercultural and social skills. In theory and practice, our students acquire everything they need to take on exciting tasks – across industries and around the globe.

At home here and everywhere

Our students gain valuable experience through time abroad as part of the theoretical and/or practical phases with their international partner companies, as well as by working with foreign lecturers. They learn about the mechanisms of international markets and experience up close how business activities outside Germany work – ideal conditions for a successful career in the globalised economy.
