The German-French Management International programme (DFS) is designed for applicants with an interest in economic and intercultural relations and excellent French language skills. The dual programme is run jointly with the Ecole Supérieure du Commerce Extérieur (ESCE) in Paris and requires students to study for similar amounts of time in Berlin and Paris. In Berlin, lectures and seminars are held in German, French or English; in Paris, the language of instruction is French. The programme comprises six semesters of theory and one of supervised work experience. After seven semesters, successful candidates are awarded a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) from the Berlin School of Economics and Law (BSEL).
With this qualification, it is then possible to move directly onto to the Master's Management International (DFS). The Master's programme lasts three semester and leads to both the Master of Arts (M.A.) degree and a Diplôme ESCE.
The German-French programme is supported by the German-French University (DFH).
