ECTS programs for Incoming Students
Started in the winter term 2000/2001, the
Department of Business Administration & Economics at the
Philipps-University of Marburg takes part in the ECTS-Programme. The
European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) was founded by the Commission of
the European Union in order to guarantee mutual academic recognition of
studies abroad in Europe.
ECTS provides a way of measuring and comparing
learning achievements. Credits which measure the students workload are
achieved by attending course units and passing successfully the
accompanying exams. A minimum of 60 credits has to be achieved in a
year of study, and 30 credits should be achieved in one term (this
corresponds with the average workload of German students).
At the Department of Business Adminstration & Economics credits can be achieved in the below-mentioned courses. Please note that in the German system of higher education studies in Business Administration & Economics are traditionally divided into two parts called “Grundstudium” (common basic studies resp. undergraduate level) and “Hauptstudium” (graduate level).
