DAAD-Chat: Business, Economics and Social Sciences in Germany

LIVE CHAT Studying Business, Economics and Social Sciences in Germany
Thursday, 28 November 2013
3 – 4 pm (CET)

The spectrum of degree courses and specialisations in Business, Economics and Social Sciences has been growing constantly in recent years. In addition to the "classic" subjects, such as economics and business administration, new subjects have emerged in response to an increasingly globalised economy.

International orientation nowadays is essential in these subjects. Global political, social and economic linkages and the teaching of intercultural competencies play a major role in most of the degree courses.

Do I have to learn German or are there also courses taught in English? How do I find a suitable degree programme? Which admission requirements do I have to fulfil?
