Business & Industry


If you want to study but quick entry to the practical world of work is also important to you, an integrated degree course may be the best way to a successful future. Are you interested in business-related issues? If so, the integrated Business & Industry BA might be perfect for you.

The course lasts for 6 semesters (3 years), during which time you'll alternate between the company and university every three months. This integrated system gives you two strong pillars for your future success: As well as studying at a cooperative university, you'll enjoy on-the-job training in our specialist departments. This method systematically combines theory and practice. In this holistic training concept, practical experience in our departments provides the ideal complement to the theoretical knowledge and skills acquired at the cooperative university. Training encompasses all functional areas of an industrial company, including logistics, accounting & controlling, marketing & sales, organisation, statistics, and personnel management.

An integrated degree means that students can quickly grow into responsible roles at the company once they've completed their training.
