About this program

International Business Studies

Digital and international - this is how the working environment of tomorrow will be. There is a strong focus on reinvention and the best thing is: companies are urgently looking for managers who are able to help to strategically shape those major transformations.

Internationality & Specialization: Marketing or Finance

We offer two thematic specializations: Marketing or Finance. This enables our master’s students to choose their personal focus and thus optimally prepare for their career.

An international study trip in the 4th semester and English as the language of instruction complete the program.
