Co-operative Bachelor's degree programmes

At HSBA, you can study Business Administration with numerous specialisations or with an international focus as in our degree programme International Management. Would you rather combine business administration with the topic of digitalisation? Then you can choose our Business Informatics degree programme. Or are you mainly interested in logistics? In that case our study programme Logistics Management is the best choice for you. For those who already work in the insurance industry and would like to further develop their skills in this area, we also offer a part-time degree programme in Insurance Management.

Frequently asked questions about the Bachelor's programme at HSBA

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.

You can find more information here

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!
