A semester abroad has various advantages: Improvement of language and soft skills, acquisition of expertise and intercultural competences, building up an international network and, of course, lots of fun.
If you want to spend a semester abroad, you can either study at one of our partner universities or as a freemover at every foreign university.

„Looking back at my semester abroad, Ireland and the Dublin Business School were a real lucky find. I would never have thought that Ireland and Dublin fascinate me so much. Lifestyle, people and landscape – everything is harmoniously and socially. Right from the beginning you feel comfortable in Ireland."
