International Business and Technology

We believe that a successful career in tomorrow's global world will depend on several areas of competence which are backbones of the International Business and Technology (IBT) program. IBT is a unique study combination of International Business, a technical specialization (Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering or Natural Sciences) and two languages.

The Program will teach you different modules starting out with basic courses in business and technology, moving forward in a chosen technical specialization to become more professional through our advanced and specialized courses. With parts of the program being offered in English as well as a possible study semester abroad and a mandatory internship, our students have the chance to get accustomed to an international environment.
There is the possibility to switching into our IBT Plus study option: IBT Plus includes a mandatory internship abroad of 20 weeks and a study semester abroad. IBT Plus has a standard duration of 8 semesters and is based on 240 ECTS.
