The program is an intensive course of study comprising 210 ECTS credit points. The program is six semesters long and the Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree is awarded upon successful completion.

The International Business Administration and Information Technology programme of Ludwigshafen University of Business and Society was established in cooperation with partner companies from the industry, giving the program a particularly practical and internationally oriented profile. For this reason, it offers an excellent point of entry into many career fields.

A large number of foreign professors and lecturers teach alongside German professors and experienced business professionals. The small size of student cohorts and the intensity of the studies provide for an exceptionally well-structured and organized program. The required international experience in the fourth semester prepares students for internationally oriented careers. Training in soft skills and foreign languages tops off the profile of our future graduates. 

Program Concept

The Bachelor’s degree program in International Business Administration and Information Technology is uniquely centered on the activities of cooperating industry partners and the business world.

Upon completion, graduates will have ideally fulfilled the requirements necessary for successfully working on the job at a company and/or entering a Master’s degree program for further study.
