Partner Universities of the School of Business and Economics
The School of Business and Economics offers numerous exchange programs with partner universities all over the world on a regular basis. Currently, students of the School can apply for a spot at over 125 partner universities. The International Relations Center continually makes efforts to increase the number of students who can go abroad.
Only students of the School of Business and Economics can apply for the exchange spots; applications from students of other faculties are excluded.
Both we at IRC and the host universities hope that by the beginning of your stay the situation with the COVID-19 virus has calmed down and you can start your semester abroad. Since the situation is still changing dynamically, we cannot give you any guarantee. Please pay attention to the information provided by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as well as the health department or the Robert Koch Institute regarding the COVID-19 situation in Germany and abroad. Since the development/spread of the disease is still not really predictable and we do not have enough places for all students in all countries, we unfortunately cannot offer alternatives in case of a cancellation/travel warning for a certain country or university. We ask for your understanding!
