Then take the opportunity to spend your semester abroad in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Taiwan or Singapore. You can also apply for the “Future Leaders” double degree program, in which you will spend four semesters in Mannheim and four semesters at the Guanghua School of Management at Peking University. At the end, you will receive bachelor's degrees from both universities. **
A study visit to a Chinese-speaking region allows you to improve this challenging language and at the same time experience the culture first-hand. Therefore, we provide you with all the necessary language skills in the previous semesters.
*very good language skills required
**Application in the second semester
In the first semester of the bachelor's program, all students choose a foreign language which they deepen in the second and third semester. A language test is carried out for the assessment and admission to the desired course, based on the existing language proficiency.
The number of participants in the language courses – except for English – is generally limited. The allocation is carried out based on the test results. The number of applicants is usually so high that during the first semester we perform a test on general knowledge about China. The test determines who will be admitted to the beginner's Chinese course. There is no previous knowledge required for the Chinese language option. An additional course offer ensures that all students have acquired solid language skills after completing their studies.
