General requirements

  • Before joining the master programme in international management, you must have completed a bachelor’s degree. If your bachelor’s degree gained you the equivalent of 210 ECTS of which at least 30 were business studies related, then you can directly join the master’s in international management and finish your studies in only 3 semesters.
  • With 180 ECTS or if you lack the 30 ECTS in business, you can first enrol in a pre-semester to gain the necessary 30 ECTS. If your 180 ECTS include the 30 ECTS in business, then the missing 30 ECTS can be obtained through a semester abroad in your third semester. The whole master’s programme, with either the pre-semester or the semester abroad, will then take 4 semesters. Applicants who already have 210 ECTS including 30 ECTS in business can spend a semester abroad voluntarily.
