There are multiple options how to study at the School of Business and Economics (SBE):

  • Exchange students from partner universities

    Exchange students from partner universities of the faculty are nominated for a stay at the University of Münster SBE via their home university’s international office. After the nomination, the International Relations Center / International Office contacts the students and helps them through the subsequent procedure. 

    • Nomination and Application deadlines

       
    • Study Periods:
      One Semester, one Term or one Year

      Exchange students can study at SBE for one semester or two semesters (one year) during the Winter semester (October - April) and/or Summer semester (April - September) .
      It is also possible to complete up to 30 ECTS in just one Term, as some of our courses are held in one Term of a semester only. Specifically, it is possible to only be attendant:
      - in Term I of each winter semester: October - December;
      - in Term II of each summer semester: June - July/August.
      To find out if this is a suitable option, please take a look at our course offerings in Section School of Business and Economics under "Course Offerings @SBE".
