Degree Program Structure
Karlshochschule opens up a whole new, exciting world with each module in the International Business study program. When I look at the module overview, I discover at the same time how the contents of my studies are logically interconnected, thereby revealing International Business to me as an overarching whole.

"The special aspect of the International Business degree program is the intense experience using the English language. English is the language of instruction right from the first semester and this is supported with an intensive language course. I really value the practical approach, as well. It is not just theory which we are taking in here: we benefit from the practical experience all our lecturers have and the opportunity to take part ourselves in company projects. I gained an incredibly enriching personal experience from the two company projects during my course of studies, where I had to deal with authentic assignments from exciting companies such as Axel Springer, Lufthansa or Daimler. The high proportion of international students and teaching staff also gave me direct insights into other cultures – and my language skills improved almost without having to really think about it! I believe the teaching here is something really special. We really do not have the feeling we're sitting in purely theoretical lessons. Instead it is more like enjoyable teamwork with a close relevance to our later professional lives when one of the main skills I will need is to be able to communicate with people and work in teams to develop joint solutions."

"The Karlshochschule is a place in which every student is encouraged to believe in their dreams and ambitions, no matter their cultural or academical background. As a student there, I was given the keys and confidence I needed to realize my dream of traveling the world while succeeding professionally, by being taught that no dream was too big or too high and constantly being challenged to reconsider my ways of perceiving the world around me, which is what some people would call "Think out of the Box". But in order to think out of the box, you first need to think and fully understand the content of the box itself. Through high-quality course material, case studies, Karls-discussions and team activities, the Karlshochschule allows students from all around the world to gain the critical reasoning abilities that they will later need to succeed in the professional world."
