Detailed description of the degree programme

A semester abroad with a double degree, international work placements, and still a short study duration: if you want a job in international business, these are the requirements you should meet. In the European Business Programme (EBP), they are part of the basic curriculum. The Bachelor programme offers you the opportunity to prepare for a career in international business management, while also improving your knowledge of one or two foreign languages. You will learn what is involved in working on business-related issues in a team with people from different countries and what it means to be internationally mobile.

Objectives

Your studies in the EBP focus on acquiring the ability to make clever judgements, perform probing analysis, and make wise decisions in the field of business. In addition, we develop specific key transferable skills which are increasing in importance in the job market. During your studies, you will further develop your intercultural skills and come to understand the economic fundamentals specific to the country of your choice. Another aim of this degree programme is thus to acquire excellent foreign language skills.

Occupational fields

After your studies, you will be equipped with the skills to contend for attractive jobs in companies from all sectors, for example, as a product manager, personnel manager, assistant auditor or junior consultant. In addition, you will gain the academic qualification for a subsequent Master’s programme, which will lead to additional further opportunities.

Content and course sequence

You can choose from a total of eight partner universities in six European countries for your double degree: in Finland, France, Great Britain, Ireland, Spain or Turkey. Our degree programme is divided into a basic, an advanced and an expansion stage. In light of this, the course sequence depends on which foreign university you choose.

You will complete the two-semester basic stage in Münster, where you will learn the theoretical fundamentals of economics: management processes, economics and business administration, statistics, mathematics and data processing. Developing your first and second foreign languages is also part of the curriculum.

The advanced stage enhances your knowledge, in particular through cross-functional and international content, such as strategic management, international business administration, intercultural management and the European economic system. Depending on which partner university you choose, this stage will comprise two or three semesters abroad (sandwich model) or in Münster (consecutive model).

In the expansion stage, you will acquire specialist knowledge of your choice, such as strategic marketing, logistics or accounting. If you have already studied abroad during the advanced stage (sandwich model), you will now return to Münster. All other students will go to the partner university (consecutive model).
