International Business Studies

Studying International Business at CBS can provide you with the decisive career advancement that a normal business studies programme may not be able to offer. As the world of business has become globalized, almost every kind of business today is international business. This can be seen by the fact that the company language of large, international corporations and German medium-sized companies is often English. The reason: customers and company locations around the world require comprehensive, international business know-how from their employees. This also being the reason why English is the study language for our degree programme – and internationality is at its core. Beginning in the third semester, you will specialize in a field of your choice: Financial Management, International Trade, Marketing Management, HRM & Leadership or Management Consulting.

Real International Business Projects

When you study International Business at CBS, you not only get access to the current research in economics but also to real projects. Together with partner companies, we initiate case studies, in which you collaborate with other students to work out and present a real international business task. This gives you a deep insight into the real working life of attractive companies.

Compulsory Internship Equals Practical Relevance

Imagine you wanted to fill company vacancies with university graduates. How much value would you place on candidates knowing what professional life feels like? That’s exactly why a compulsory internship is part of the international business curriculum at CBS International Business School. Our Career Service helps you find an exciting internship at a renowned company. Even abroad!

Internationality is the Foundation

After completing your studies, stand out from the rest when looking for the really interesting positions on the global labour market. With a clear focus on internationality. When you study international business at CBS, you will find a practical curriculum waiting for you, in which theoretical concepts of business management and management theory are linked with current questions from international business practice. In so doing, you will begin to understand the complexity of business decisions at an early stage – and you will automatically be familiar with all the nomenclature thanks to the lectures held in English. But that’s not all. You will acquire another foreign language, which is also part of the study programme.
