Concept & learning goals

The International Program in Business (IPB) offers international and German students the opportunity to receive a global business education taught entirely in English by an international faculty.

The International Program in Business is available at the Mosbach Campus (IPB Fall and IPB Spring Jan-Apr.) and at the Bad Mergentheim Campus (IPB Spring Apr-July). Students can combine the IPB Fall and IPB Spring programs at the Mosbach campus for a two-semester program.

The IPB includes:

  • Business classes taught entirely in English by international faculty
  • Modules in one- or two-week blocks
  • Intercultural mix of students in class (international and German students)
  • Excursions to major companies, cities, and regional attractions
  • Orientation, intercultural and team-building program
  • Intensive German language course for international students
  • 30 ECTS credits per semester

All classes and activities aim at:

  • Broadening students' knowledge in a wide range of international business topics
  • Developing students' communication and intercultural skills
  • Familiarizing students with Germany, German language and culture, and its internationally oriented economy
  • Providing opportunities to enhance international communication and cooperation
