Beginning of studies:
The winter semester starts on 1 October.
The International Management Bachelor’s programme is rooted in foreign language competence. During the course of study, English is the primary language used in the classroom and workplace. In addition, students are required to study one or more additional foreign languages (Spanish, Italian, French, etc.) in each of the first three semesters. Since up to 50% of the participants in the programme are foreign students, their integration into the programme is supported through German language courses offered over three semesters.
The Bachelor’s programme is a seven-semester programme that includes both theoretical and practical training:
- Semesters 1 and 2:
In the first year, particular emphasis is placed on teamwork, presentation skills, information technology, business methods and foreign language acquisition. The first two semesters also cover the functional areas of business (economics, logistics, marketing, accounting, etc.). All courses are taught and tested completely in English with the exception of the foreign-language electives. Foreign students are also required to take German language courses that span both semesters.
- Semester 3:
The third semester is almost exclusively designed to cover the international aspects of the functional areas of business: accounting, economics, finance, business law, tax and marketing. Information technology skills and foreign language acquisition are further emphasised. All of the courses are taught and examined in English with the exception of the foreign language elective. Foreign students are required to take a German language course.
- Semesters 4 and 5:
In the fourth or fifth semester, the students work as interns either abroad or in an international function at a German company of their choice. In addition to gaining business and foreign language skills, the internship helps the students with their career plans. They get first-hand experience in a company and an industry where they may wish to work later. Our graduates are often later employed at the same organisations where they have done their internships. Also in the fourth or fifth semester, students have the opportunity to widen their academic horizons at a foreign university. In addition to European universities, Deggendorf has partnership programmes with universities all around the globe, including Hong Kong, Brazil and Mexico. This semester is designed to broaden the students’ management perspective in their field of interest and improve their understanding of foreign systems and cultures.
- Semesters 6 and 7:
In the final semesters, students take capstone seminars and case-study courses in the areas of international management, finance, economics, and managing across cultures. They also make their first contributions to the scientific world by conducting independent research and study that culminates in a Bachelor’s thesis.
