What Makes This Program Special

  • One year, three countries, three universities: The program's unique structure gives you an opportunity to study for one year at three universities in three different countries with fellow classmates from different backgrounds and nationalities. Students learn in small groups, creating a familiar atmosphere and ideal conditions to support your individual learning success.
  • Hands-On, Real-World Experience: By working on real-world problems as part of a business consulting project and in case studies, you acquire invaluable hands-on experience to prepare yourself to embark on a career. In addition, company visits not only provide unique insight into country-specific business conditions, you can also take advantage of networking opportunities. 
  • Intercultural Skills: Continual collaboration as part of a multicultural team, professional support in the form of mentoring, and encouragement to regularly reflect provide ideal conditions to grow and develop on a personal level as well as acquire intercultural skills.
  • Assets for Your Professional Career: Offered entirely in English, this program gives you an opportunity to acquire strong language skills in a minimum of one additional foreign language during the course of the international year, as well as an option to earn a double degree at one of our partner universities. If you aim to pursue an international career, the program gives you the academic background you need.
  • Ideal Organizational Support: A standardized curriculum and direct ECTS credit transfer by partner universities ensures less administrative hassle, alllowing you to focus more on your learning and educational experience during your international year abroad.

Programme Structure

  • Teamwork and Professional Development: Teamwork and personal development: By studying in an unfamiliar environment at three different universities together with students from a wide variety of backgrounds, you challenge yourself to go beyond your comfort zone and face new challenges in a relatively short period of time. Working continuously as part of an international team also requires openness, flexibility and creativity in order to find solutions. The experience allows you to grow personally and strengthen your team skills.
  • Consulting: As part of the international year, you acquire a basic understanding of consulting and can apply what you have learned in the real-world by taking part in projects with companies in Germany and abroad.
