Programme Organisation and Structure

International Management (Bachelor of Science) at HSBA

The cooperate study programme integrates phases of theory at the university (on average 32 weeks a year) and practical phases of training in their training company (on average 20 weeks a year).

Students acquire practice-oriented business knowledge with a special focus on international management. During the course of studies, a further focus is also placed on teaching methodological skills. In the first two years of study, basic business management knowledge is taught and supplemented by method modules, intercultural basics and international law. In the second and third years, selected core subjects are dealt with in greater depth (Marketing Management, Financing, Strategic Management, International Accounting and Controlling). The third year of study is characterised by electives (specialisation/minor, compulsory elective subject, excursion) and the bachelor thesis.

FAQs

Frequently asked questions

Can I apply for a study place directly with HSBA?

No, you apply directly to the company. If you have successfully completed a selection procedure and are offered a place, the partner company will contact HSBA and register you. You can find all current study place offers from our partner companies on our Study Place Exchange.

Our Hamburg Business Speed Dating offers an additional opportunity. It takes place twice a year.

If you have any questions about an admission test, you are welcome to contact us.

What are the options of studying abroad?

Yes. Most HSBA Bachelor students spend time abroad during their studies, sometimes several times. For example, in one-semester exchange programmes at our partner universities, in the one-week study excursions in the third year of study, or by participating in a summer school. Some partner companies also enable students to spend time abroad during the practical phase. Internationality also plays a major role in everyday study life in Hamburg, as HSBA attaches great importance to the internationality of the course content and offers a wide range of English-language seminars.

Can I apply to a company even if I do not yet fulfil the admission requirements?

It is best if you fulfil the admission requirements for our Bachelor's degree programmes beforehand. Or if your previous grades at degree level are in the right direction. Otherwise your application will not usually be successful. IF you have to take an admission test and would still like to apply beforehand, be sure to mention this in your letter of application. Then it will be clear to the company representatives that you know what you are doing!
