Profile

The bachelor’s programme International Management teaches you the core business skills required in an international context.
The programme’s concept prepares you for both specialist and management positions with an international focus. As a graduate, you will be able to work for companies or organisations opera-ting in the global market.

The scientific basis consists of topics such as

  • state-of-the-art business administration,
  • accounting and taxation including international tax planning,
  • business-oriented economics,
  • quantitative methods and empirical research methods,
  • global strategy and finance as well as
  • intercultural management and organisation.

In some of the courses, the language of instruction is English (e.g. International Business Economics and some elective courses). In addition, you learn
  • business English and a second foreign language (business French or Spanish) as well as
  • academic working practices and key management competences.

Furthermore, you also have opportunities to acquire additional skills.

For more specialised management skills, you can choose between the following elective modules with a functional focus:
  • Marketing Management,
  • International Marketing Management,
  • International Economic Policy for Managers,
  • International Distribution Management,
  • International Human Resources Management,
  • Current Trends in Controlling and
  • Information Purpose of Financial Reporting.

The project module combines subjects you have already studied in theory and provides further specialisation options:
  • corporate internationalisation or
  • corporate culture and corporate responsibility.

During the Financial Global Business Simulation, you apply your theoretical knowledge to practical decision-making.The syllabus includes a compulsory semester abroad, complementing its overall international focus. The study pro-gramme concludes with a bachelor’s thesis and a colloquium.

Please note: The language of instruction is partly German, partly English.​
