The Bachelor of Arts International Management - BWL is an internationally oriented degree programme in economics that also includes the learning or deepening of a foreign language (Danish or Spanish). Business and economic contents are linked with regional knowledge and brought into international contexts, depending on the choice of specialisation. The courses are held in German, English and the respective foreign language chosen.
Economics, area studies and language skills combined
European integration, globalization, migration: National and cultural boundaries are falling. Management activities in companies, administrations and organizations are becoming more dynamic, more complex and more demanding. In our bachelor's degree program International Management - Business Administration, we train highly qualified management trainees for national and international small and large companies.
A basic education in economics (marketing, strategic management, human resource management, micro- and macroeconomics, controlling, etc.) is complemented by lectures and seminars in the field of qualitative and social science methods, cultural area studies (Scandinavia or Latin America/Southern Europe, depending on the chosen focus) and foreign language skills (Danish or Spanish).
Living internationality: Already during your studies you will experience interculturality with exchange students from all over the world and in cooperation with Syddansk Universitet. The majority of students spend their 5th semester abroad at one of the numerous partner universities worldwide.
Crossing borders - one study, two degrees

On the other days of the week, the courses take place on the campus of the European University in Flensburg.
