Degree programme

Would you like to combine your studies of Business Administration with professional employment? Then the part-time nature of this Bachelor’s degree programme could be the right option for you. Classroom-based teaching is provided on Mondays to Fridays between 18.00 and 21.15; sometimes also on Saturdays.

Modern Blended Learning enables students to combine the advantages of a classical full-time course with innovative distance learning techniques. With teaching split equally between classroom-based and online self-study, the classroom-based teaching is performed over between 8 and 10 weekends (Friday and Saturday) from 8.00 to 16.00. We also organize a week-long block seminar per semester with teaching Monday to Friday 8.00 to 16.00.

Students can also choose to take courses from the other degree form (evening classes or Blended Learning). Those in professional employment and holders of a professional qualification (in accordance with § 11 BerlHG) can take advantage of support to facilitate assumption of their studies. A number of places on Blended Learning courses are reserved for holders of professional qualifications.
