3. International Experience

In the 6th and 7th semesters you have the opportunity to both study and work abroad, gaining vital experience of international business environments and working in culturally diverse teams, which will definitely give you a competitive advantage on the job market.

InformationOpen areaClose area

In the sixth and seventh semester you have two options, each worth in total 30 CPs:

Option 1: In the sixth semester you will have a semester abroad at one of our partner universities and in the seventh semester you will do an internship abroad for 12 weeks and take part in a module on Empirical Research Methods before writing your thesis.

Option 2: In the sixth semester you will do a six-month internship abroad and in the seventh semester take the modules International Management in European Contexts II and Empirical Research Methods before writing your thesis.

4. Development of Competences

The European Business Management course provides a wealth of opportunities to develop a variety of personal and social competences and skills ranging from team-working, time management, problem-solving, conflict management, business communication skills, intercultural competencies, managing projects and self-reflection. This theme runs throughout the degree programme, providing you with the chance to master these skills at your own pace.

5. Languages

To work in an international business environment, a good knowledge of languages is very much desired. The European Business Management programme is run completely in English but you can also take language courses in German as well as modules run in German. We also offer language courses in French and Spanish as part of the curriculum as well as other languages through our Language Centre. English language courses are also part of the curriculum where we work closely with the content course teachers to provide you with the language necessary to follow and complete these courses successfully and with a deeper, longer-lasting learning effect.

6. Flexibility

One of the key advantages of studying European Business Management is the flexibility inherent in the degree programme that allows you to refine and define your study focus, building up a profile that develops and grows as the course progresses. The flexibility already starts in the foundation course where you can choose which language to focus on. It continues with the wide choice of specializations plus the opportunity to do an interdisciplinary module. And there is the choice in the 6th and 7th semesters of either doing an internship abroad and an exchange semester abroad or an internship in any country and the module on International Management in European Contexts.
