As a first step one bachelor's program has been chosen for the journey towards the international program accreditation EFMD accredited. The program International Management B.A. has opted for this project in order to achieve its long-term strategic goals in terms of a strong international positioning. The study program is a 6-semester internationally oriented, English-taught bachelor's degree program with an integrated study semester abroad. The student groups have an international composition, additionally, many visiting students from the faculty join the program’s modules.
