Courses offered at the faculty are mostly taught as lectures or seminars. As exchange student you are invited to participate both bachelor and master courses. Each semester, we ensure that you can register for a set of English language courses in any of the following four focus areas:
In addition to these focus areas, you can choose further lectures from the Vorlesungsverzeichnis. Also, you don´t have to register at the Faculty of Business Management and Economics for lecture-type courses. However, if you intend to participate in a seminar you should contact the lecturer early because most seminars have registration deadlines.
