Courses for incoming students

A semester abroad in the business school

Incoming students 2017

Every semester we welcome exchange students from all over the world. Within the framework of international student exchange, we maintain various partnerships with universities worldwide. Usually students stay in Trier for one or two semesters and take part in business and language classes in our department. They have the opportunity to participate in courses that are theory-based and have a high practical relevance to the business word. Our dedicated professors have a lot of practical experience in the business world and therefore teach both knowledge and contents which students can integrate into their professional lives in the future.


Course offer for exchange students

In our courses, we place value on professional relevance without disregarding the origins of the discipline.

Our international students can choose from a large variety of classes in our course catalog. Detailed descriptions of individual classes can be found in the module handbook.

You also have the opportunity to participate in German courses. The International Office offers German courses for beginners (see StudIP ), whereas the Business School offers courses in Business German at the higher levels (see StudIP).
