The study program International Management is directed at potential students who are interested in broad business administration training with an international emphasis. The program includes a mandatory study semester abroad at one of over a hundred cooperating universities worldwide. All lectures are held in the English language. Students also learn at least one other foreign language. This makes the degree program especially attractive for students who will later seek employment abroad. On the other hand, the program is also directed at international students who wish to improve their German skills and want to work in Germany later.
The Faculty of Business Management and Social Sciences is a member of EFMD Global.

Ismail El Mir is in his second semester in the summer semester 2022:
My educational background is:
First I am a student from Morocco and I have a university diploma in Marketing and a professional bachelor in Business administration in morocco.
Why I have chosen this programme:
I chose this program because its linked to my major which is business and economics and sinceI have the same background I do really want to proceed further in this field and reach my dream job which is to be a university professor. Also I do appreciate that it is offered in English so it gives more opportunities to do lots of researches abroad since programs in English are available in every university - regarding the structure of this program I find it more flexible and rich of important subjects and with good professors that interact with us in positive ways. And the program in general is well structured (since i studied a previous Bachelor I did a comparison and the “IM” program is very rich and good).
Which are the features of the university:
I am also very happy to be a part in this Hochschule because it is considered as one of the best universities in Germany and it is modern, looking at the facilities and the availability of lots of rooms to prepare with different atmospheres so it does not make the student bored by preparing in one place always but he or she has the possibility to change the place: for example the library and the building “SL” and the small preparation rooms “SB”: This is actually so amazing! You never get tired of the same routine and you can always change if you feel tired from preparing in one place always. In general it is an awesome university and I am even more proud to be a part of and I hope I can help in many ways as possible and thank you so much again!
Chihaya Shibata is a visiting student from Japan spending the summer semester 2022 at Osnabrueck University of Applied Sciences
My educational background is:
I am a student from the Meiji University in Japan and I study business management.
The advantages of the International Management programme are:
I could meet many exchange students from different countries which was not possible in my home university. It was really interesting to hear opinions of international students from many aspects.
Why I am studying at the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences:
The reason I wanted to study at the Osnabrück University Applied Sciences is I wanted to learn business in English with many international students.
How innovative the International Management programme and the lectures are:
I really like lectures of the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences. Even though the length of time of classes were longer than my home university classes, I was absorbed by the lectures of professors and I forgot the time because many professors in Osnabrück communicated with students a lot during the class.
