Your studies at the Business School

Our degree programmes - Which degree programme suits you best?

What distinguishes our degree programmes

Future-oriented study content that will stay with you through your entire professional life

With us you will receive a challenging and exciting academic education that will provide you with a solid foundation in business administration that will last throughout your entire professional life and offers you interesting prospects for the future.

You can set your own priorities by choosing the specific course of study. Whether you want to deepen the core of your subject in the Business Administration degree programme; or whether you want to specifically emphasise topics such as globalisation or digitalisation in the International Business and Business Informatics degree programmes: A lot is possible with us. The Business Psychology degree programme offers the opportunity to look behind the scenes of human thought and action and to analyse behaviour in an economic environment. Studying business offers you various opportunities to get to know the content even better.

In our Master's programme in Business Management with its various specialisations, you can then specialise according to your interests and inclinations.

In addition, we teach you important practical skills during your studies, such as presentation and communication techniques, teamwork, time management, foreign language skills and scientific work.

Very high practical relevance

All our degree programmes have an extremely high practical relevance. This begins with the learning content, which is consistently oriented towards the requirements of private companies, continues with practice-oriented teaching formats such as case studies, business games and project seminars and ends with the study-integrated practical project.

Furthermore, you can experience real practitioners up close and learn from them during numerous company excursions and guest lectures. This gives you valuable insights into the working world during your studies and prepares you very well for your future professional life.

Great freedom of choice in our degree programmes

We believe that it is better for most first-year students not to specialise too much too early. That's why all of our Bachelor's programmes start with a broad overview of the respective subject area. This way, you can first get to know all the long-term perspectives that your choice of study opens up for you.

But after a few semesters, when you know what interests you and what suits you, you will have a wide range of choices  for example, in the fields of finance, marketing, controlling, auditing and information management. This way you can continue on your own personal path.

In the advanced Master's programme, we offer you the opportunity to choose between different specialisations and thus shape your path to the future according to your ideas.

A variety of opportunities to go abroad

Experience abroad can enrich you not only professionally, but also personally. Getting to know other cultures, learning new languages and making international contacts are valuable aspects that you can gain through a stay abroad.

All of our degree programmes therefore offer you corresponding opportunities, from excursions abroad to internships abroad to studying abroad.

Whatever you have in mind: We'll help you do it. For example, we have agreements with over 80 partner universities around the world, which will make your path to a foreign university much easier. And we are also happy to advise you on financing through scholarships, based on our many years of experiences in this area.

Familial atmosphere

We cultivate a familial atmosphere in which students, lecturers and staff enjoy meeting each other and communicating openly. On this interpersonal basis, we work professionally towards our common goals. This includes, in particular, the success of our students, because we also see this as a common goal.

So if you have questions or specific concerns, you will always find a suitable contact person who is happy to take time for you.

Furthermore, we are happy with our lively student body (Fachschaft), which is not only a good discussion partner for all questions regarding student concerns, but also enriches the life of the department with its party-oriented activities - starting with the legendary annual pub crawl for first semester students.

Where you study - student city in the heart of Europe

Hauptmarkt in Trier

Trier is not only the oldest city in Germany, but also a real student city with around 20,000 students and a good 100,000 inhabitants. You can therefore expect a great range of leisure and cultural activities with numerous bars, cafés, clubs and theatres - and all this in a picturesque old town with no less than eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Furthermore, the various green spaces in the city centre and along the Moselle River invite you to spend time with fellow students in the summer. Here you can find out about leisure activities in Trier and the surrounding area.

Trier also offers a variety of events almost all year round: The Old Town Festival, Moselle Festival, Olewiger Wine Festival and the well-known and beautiful Christmas Market are always worth a visit.

If you are new to the city, you can find information and current events under #studierinTrier.

Moreover, Trier's location in the heart of Europe offers numerous opportunities for excursions to the scenic Moselle region and the neighbouring countries of Belgium, France and Luxembourg.
