Our study programmes

The Department of Business offers three programmes with a Bachelor’s and three programmes with a Master’s degree. In addition we jointly offer additional business and engineering programs with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology and the Department of Food Technology.

Our offering is characterized by a practical and research-based education and optimal group sizes. Internationality is a fundamental element of many of our programs.

Our master programs have a duration of three semesters and award 90 ECTS points. If your preceding Bachelor degree is equivalent to less than 210 ECTS points we offer many options to acquire the ECTS points missing for a Master degree.

All programs are accredited by AQAS e.V., Cologne.
