Economic interrelationships and knowledge of the tasks and processes in companies are conveyed in a basic business degree course. But even outside the classic “business professions”, graduates of the natural sciences or humanities often need knowledge of business administration and management in order to develop themselves and advance further in their jobs. At the CBS International Business School, you will have the opportunity to enter a master’s programme in business studies despite the fact that your first degree is in a non-business subject.
Depending on the level of your previous specialist knowledge, an individual assessment will be carried out to determine whether you need to acquire basic business administration knowledge for one or two semesters before starting the master’s programme. Depending on the target language for the master`s programme, the course content can be completed in German or English. Besides a complete pre-semester, there is also the possibility to make up for missing ECTS credits in an intensive course during the summer months. After successful completion of the specified preliminary courses, it is possible to enter all master’s degree programmes offered at CBS.
The decision on how many ECTS need to be made up for is made after examination of your individual documents. Therefore, please submit your complete study documents (transcript of records, module handbook, certificate – if available) and your curriculum vitae via the application form. If you have any further questions, please contact our student advisory team at the respective campus.
