Information for prospective students

International Business Administration (B.A.)

As a graduate of this bachelor's degree, you are excellently prepared for management activities in internationally cooperating and operating companies, industrial groups, banks as well as service companies and public institutions. The focus is on international aspects in terms of content, linguistic competence and transcultural experience. In addition to training in the core subjects of business administration, economics and law, with this course we also offer you insights into the political, legal and economic framework conditions of the international environment.

The course also includes events on key qualifications such as communication behavior and dealing with cultural differences. The program includes a compulsory international year during which the courses are held exclusively in English. This international year takes place in a multinational environment: either at a university abroad or in Frankfurt with international fellow students. We also recommend that you complete the practical module abroad.

The international course is designed for seven semesters. The structure of the course is flexible and gives you different options for participation: from "Internationalization at home" at your home university to three semesters abroad with the option of a double degree, provided that there is a corresponding agreement with the partner university. If you successfully participate in a double degree program, you will also be awarded the degree from the partner university after completing your bachelor's degree at Frankfurt UAS.
