Semester abroad

Foreign countries, exotic smells, colors, shapes and sounds, unexpected impressions, a market in Jakarta, a wedding in New Delhi, meeting new people, absorbing foreign cultures, seeing the world through different eyes and being amazed. Totally and mind blowingly amazed.

This is precisely what Karlshochschule wants. To set no limits on my developmental or cultural experiences, the keyword is Internationalism. As well as making English the teaching language, as well as offering a wide choice of other languages, Karlshochschule also offers me the chance to study for a semester at one of over 100 partner universities, such as San Diego, Sydney and Shanghai without losing any time.

Normally, the semester abroad in the International Tourism Management, International Marketing Management and International Sustainability Management study programs will take place in the fifth semester. There is a mandatory semester abroad in the International BusinessIntercultural Management and Communication, International Relations as well as Politics, Philosophy and Economics courses. In the Arts and Cultural Management course, I can choose to spend a development semester outside Germany. In the International Event Management and International Media Management study programs it is also possible for me to complete my internship abroad instead of a semester abroad.

Partner Universities

For me, the incredible international network of Karlshochschule is one of its greatest advantages. It is a member of the ATLAS network, Businet, and EAIE. It participates in the ERASMUS+ program (D KARLSRU08), and maintains close ties with universities and institutions around the globe. These partnerships involve student and faculty exchanges, joint projects, and the regular sharing of information. Currently there are over 100 agreements that have been made with universities around the world, and the numbers are still growing.
