Bachelor in Business Administration

For a great start into your career!

Study at one of the most renowned business schools in Germany: Our internationally focused Bachelor in Business Administration provides you with theoretical knowledge, company workshops and guest lectures, e.g. in Marketing and Finance, to get prepared for the professional world.

As an international student, I couldn't have wished for a more international studying environment. Within my bachelor, I had the chance to get to know students from all over the world, get in contact with various global corporations and spend a semester abroad. Now I started my master in management because I think it offers the best preparation for the professional career I am aiming for. I can only recommend it!
