First semester (freshman) orientation

Important information about beginning to study

We would like to invite all of our undergraduate and graduate first semester students to our informational and introductory events from the 14th to the 15th of June 2020.

There you will receive important information, which you will need for an easier start to your studies and an orientation into not only the Department of Business but also the University. You will also have the opportunity to get to know your fellow students and make first connections. An overview of the events can be found in the schedules below.

The Department of Business offers first semester students a special preliminary course in mathematics. It will take place before that actual begin of the semester courses. Again, you can find further details below.

Please check this page periodically before the start of the semester as there may be last-minute changes in the dates and times

Note: the orientation week that the International Office offers to international students is no substitute, but rather an addition to, the orientation into the Department of Business.
