The degree programme in Global Business and Economics at FH Aachen - University of Applied Sciences is taught entirely in English. Students get to know fundamental areas of business and economics and put these into an international context.

We live in a globally interconnected world, where international relations are key to the success of most businesses. Many companies operate across borders and have worldwide branch offices as well as cooperation partners. At FH Aachen - University of Applied Sciences we offer a bachelor degree in Global Business and Economics. 

Raw materials are imported from abroad and goods are produced in foreign countries. Global business therefore needs qualified specialists who are able to confidently move on international terrain, work on international teams and have excellent English language skills. Our degree programme Global Business and Economics is taught strictly in English and is oriented towards an international professional career after graduation.

Students acquire fundamental and practice-oriented knowledge of economic sciences, e.g. in marketing, finance, economics, or business taxation, and all of this in an international and global context. The curriculum is supplemented by social competences and further foreign language courses. Over the course of study, students can select specialisation modules from a comprehensive catalogue, such as International Management Training or International Economics, thereby deciding where to lay their individual focus. In the fifth or sixth semester, students have the opportunity to study abroad for an additional semester. They can choose among more than 100 partner universities worldwide where they can deepen their intercultural competencies.


After completing the degree programme Global Business and Economics, graduates can start a career in a wide range of different occupational fields, both nationally and internationally.

Depending on the chosen specialisations, they can find jobs in different sectors of the industry. Whether it is in Human Resource Management, Operations Management, or Managerial Accounting - due to a broad knowledge of business and economics, and an excellent command of English, graduates are eminently suitable for the international labour market.

They will quickly find  their way in an international team and they will be able to understand the overall scheme of things in companies that operate all around the world.
