  • Target Audience and Requirements

  • Curiosity, a spirit of discovery, perseverance, logical thinking, independence, self-discipline and a certain amount of organisational ability are qualities that successful candidates should have.

Alongside your studies, you will make practical experiences: The Career Center helps students search for a suitable internship. In addition, the key qualifications module provides an opportunity to earn credits through practical work, e.g. by participating in the student council or through courses in soft skills. Motivated students are welcome to take part in one of the student initiatives and gain practical experience there.

  • Cost

  • No tuition is charged for the Bachelor's programme in Business Administration. Students are only required to pay a standard university semester fee, which includes a public transit pass.
