Program Profile

On the basis of a comprehensive education in business administration, the goal of the International Business Management (East Asia) programme of Ludwigshafen University of Business and Society is to provide students with the special technical and methodological skills for employment with or within the East Asian economic area. These skills are required of professionals working in this area in order to solve demanding and complex specialist and managerial tasks in the relevant lines of work. Accordingly, prerequisites must be completed, which are also necessary for the successful performance of positions of responsibility in industry and administration outside of the East Asian economic context.

The program can only be begun during the winter semester of each school year. The fifth and sixth semesters are completed at universities in the People’s Republic of China or in Japan.
