We offer Tracks from 2 different Bachelor Programs. More details under the topic Faculty of Business and Law on the website from the International Office "English Taught Course Choices for Exchange Students".

Students with good German language skills (TestDaF =/> 14 points) can choose courses in German. Please refer to the individual module handbooks (Modulhandbuch), on the individual page of our preferred study program.

You can choose modules from our offered programs regardless of the recommended semester but they must be out of the same study program as you can only enroll in one Bachelor Program. The recommended semester provides an indication of the degree of difficulty and the appropriate level of experience you should bring with you for the respective academic field.

Graduate exchange students from our partner universities can choose from our Master Program.

Our program for graduate students "Strategic Information Management (M.Sc.)" provides 30 ECTS of English taught lectures each Winter Semester. More English taught courses are available in the Master Programs "Leadership (M.Sc.)", "Accounting and Finance (M.Sc.)" and "Global Logistics (M.Sc.)".

More details under the topic Faculty of Business and Law on the website from the International Office "English Taught Course Choices for Exchange Students".

Prior to the lecture period, a four-week German language course takes place (5 ECTS). More German and other language courses are available throughout the semester.

Please see the Language Center for detail.

We recommend you take the average workload of 30 ECTS per semester. As an exchange student you must complete a minimum of 20 ECTS. Unless specified otherwise, each Module is 5 ECTS. At least 3 Modules have to be academic courses offered by our department. You can only choose complete modules! You may drop 1-3 courses from your chosen track and add 1-3 courses from the Language Center.

For queries regarding the course choices please contact the employee for International Student Affairs Advisor.
