- different management approaches and distribution methods
- in-depth understanding and assessment of business correlations

The courses are held in lecture and seminar format. There are about 30 students per class – this encourages dialogue between professors and students.
Thanks to the internship integrated by the IUBH in your studies, you have the opportunity of trying out your academic knowledge outside the classroom.
You will also get to know the industry and its various specialisations – the perfect basis for your career choice.
- You can spend your internship in Germany or abroad
- The internship lasts a whole semester
- Forge your first contacts in industry
- Include the internship as an important element in your CV
- Make the most of the opportunity of being taken on after graduation by a company from our industry network
Another opportunity to gain practical experience: Extra Curriculum is an optional component of the study programme, and is offered during the first semester.
The programme contains the following:
- Workshops and conferences on and off campus on a variety of topics
- Guest lectures by experts from industry and from the aviation sector
- Excursions to industry-specific companies, for example destination agencies or airports
- Students are awarded a certificate for regular attendance – for their CVs
Extra Curriculum gives you additional orientation and insight into the structures of the industry from the very first semester. This is your opportunity to get to know the various forms of business organisation – and thus perhaps also your own future area of specialisation – at first hand.
Students with strong academic performance can optionally spend a semester abroad at one of our partner universities (in-house selection process).
