International Business and Management*


Information about the degree programme

Our economy is increasingly determined by globalization. German companies in nearly all branches operate internationally at this point. Are you interested in a career at the international level? Then earn your degree in our English-taught undergraduate programme International Business and Management, B.A. and obtain the qualifications you will need for your professional future.

Our degree programme places immense importance on practice-oriented teaching and application. Over the course of your studies, you will build a solid theoretical foundation in business administration, economics and management, while also learning how to effectively apply your know-how and skills for practical purposes through numerous projects with (supra-)regional companies and partner universities in Germany and abroad. Guiding you along the way are approachable professors with extensive industry experience themselves.

During your studies you will develop an array of key skills from how to conduct research, to entrepreneurial thinking, to interpersonal skills that are indispensable in the modern workplace. Through various forms of exams, for example group presentations, you will be given numerous opportunities to improve not only your public speaking abilities, confidence and professional communication skills, but also your teamwork and conflict management skills. And if you are interested in obtaining further qualifications, consider earning a double degree in business with our partner university abroad.

At Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences, you will work, study and interact with colleagues in English in a deeply international environment, allowing you to improve your language proficiency and experience other cultures organically as you earn your degree.

What are you waiting for? Let us prepare you for your professional career in international business and management together.
