Accommodating the international orientation, students are obliged to complete one term at a foreign university (study abroad), lasting at least three months, during the second period of their studies.
Please note that the successful completion of all modules from the basic studies is generally required before studying abroad.
The accreditation of the study abroad is only effected if the student obtains at least 12 credits and provides evidence thereof. Study abroad as defined by the subject-specific regulations (SSO) is the attendance of an accredited foreign university holding the right to award doctorates. As a matter of principle, all performances to be accredited must not be completed in the student’s mother tongue. Proof for the module "Fremdsprache (Niveaustufe Europarat B2)" is considered provided, if the student obtains and proves at least 18 credits for modules completed in the foreign language at the university abroad.
The accreditation of study and examination performances, effected at the university abroad, comply with Art 12 general study and examination regulations (ASPO). The department of international affairs is the contact for the accreditation of foreign study and examination performances at the faculty of economic and business science. Accreditation of study and examination performances immediately with the respective professors is not possible without exceptions! Concerning this matter please pay attention to the entry requirements for applications for the thesis as defined by the chairs.
Upon request, for justified exceptions the responsible examination board is permitted to exempt students from studying abroad. Students, who do not complete studies abroad, have to successfully pass the group of modules "European Economics" during the course of their specialization and must successfully take at least 18 Credits in the course of their specialization, whose language of instruction must not be German. Furthermore, the students must complete a four-week international internship during the course of their studies. (See Art 6 (9) subject-specific regulations (SSO))
