Course Overview

In the International Management distance learning course, you will get the most important basics as well as all intercultural skills that are crucial in the industry. In addition to the topics of marketing and personnel management, the curriculum also includes current trends and developments in the field of digitization. The course distinguishes itself from classic business administration through the strong international focus in the individual modules.
Our bachelor's program is modular, which means that you study using subject areas that are divided into so-called "modules". Within these modules there is sometimes an introductory course and an in-depth course that systematically prepare you for the completion of this module. Within the modules, you will receive ECTS points (European Credit Transfer System) for each successful completion, which document your performance. These ECTS points are internationally comparable and of course recognized.


In the fifth and sixth semester, you choose your specializations in the amount of 30 ECTS. You can combine specializations from all areas as you like.
Some exemplary specializations are:

  • Advanced Leadership
  • International media industry
  • Public Diplomacy and PR
  • Online and Social Media Marketing
  • Diversity and advice
  • International transport.
