Global study trip
Each academic year, students from all campuses in Europe, as well as students from our academic partners can join our Global Study Trip to Tokyo, Japan. The weeklong trip is packed with cultural excursions, company visits, social activities and an Asian Management seminar.
The Internship option encourages students to put their skills and knowledge into practice through offers received by our Careers Department from regional and international companies and organizations. Up to 30 elective credits can be awarded upon successful completion of the internship.
Our Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree program is programmatically accredited by the US-based Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) and the EU-based European Council for Business Education (ECBE).
Our academic calendar is based on a quarter system (1 quarter = 10 weeks). Because of the program's flexible structure and modular design, multiple starting dates are available at the start of every Quarter, in October, January, April, July, and exceptionally also in Term B of the Summer Quarter in August. All campuses follow the same academic calendar.
