Welcome at the Department of Business and Economics!

Erasmus+ Exchange Students

Every year we welcome students from over 20 partner universities from across Europe as part of the Erasmus+ program to study with us for one or two semesters. Incoming students can visit courses from our high-quality study bachelor’s and master’s program. Many of these courses are offered in English. Twenty-six research and teaching areas cover a broad range of topics and current issues in business administration and economics. As a department, we strive to combine practical orientation with a strong theoretical and methodological foundation to help prepare our students for management tasks at an internationally competitive level. You can find out more about our study programs here.
