Together for tomorrow: WiSo 2030



We have more than doubled our range of international study programs in recent years, thereby gaining global visibility. Both international students and German students in international degree programs acquire substantial linguistic and intercultural skills through our professional language concept. Almost every course of study offers students mobility windows for stays abroad. We promote exchange with international scientists through international block weeks, summer schools, guest lectures and global classroom formats. All administrative employees can take part in transfer programs with international partner universities and thereby gain valuable insights into the administration of foreign scientific institutions. We enable students and all employees to particularly emphasize the acquisition of intercultural skills and to develop a global mindset.

Internationalization goals by 2030

More diversity on campus

The number of international university members, especially the number of international degree-seeking students, should be increased. The goal is for at least 10 percent of international students to be enrolled in the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences.


More international experience

The number of graduates with study-related experience abroad should be increased. The Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences aims to increase the proportion of its graduates with at least three months of experience abroad from the current 19 to 25 percent.
