Semester Abroad

More than 100 partner universities worldwide

Those are only some of the impressions our students gain during their semester abroad. To spend one semester of one’s studies at a foreign university has many advantages: you strengthen your foreign language skills, gain a career advantage, experience a new culture, make new friends, achieve greater independence and gather valuable memories. During all CBS bachelor programmes, you have the possibility to study abroad at one of more than 100 international partner universities. For the English speaking programmes, a semester abroad is mandatory. However, the German speaking programmes General Management and Wirtschaftspsychologie also offer you the opportunity to spend one semester at an international university. Using #cbswanderlust on Instagram you can find lots of impressions from our students during their semester abroad.
