We strongly believe that study abroad offers you several important benefits. The international experience will broaden your perspective, not only academically but also personally, and it will help you to develop the cultural sensitivity and awareness that you will need to operate successfully in the globalizing world. Also, many of our exchange partners offer interesting academic content that your regular FEB degree programme may not offer. Study abroad enhances your employability: Experience shows that potential employers value, and increasingly require, international experience of graduates.
The Faculty of Economics and Business therefore stimulates and facilitates international student exchange, for instance by including in all our undergraduate programmes a semester of electives that can be taken abroad, and by maintaining an extensive global network of high quality exchange partners. But also through the many services of the Faculty’s Exchange Office!
The number of exchange places available at each of our partner university’s is limited and specified in the official exchange agreement. In case the number of applicants exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected based on their FEB study results. Therefore, it is important to maintain a good grade average from the start of your studies.
Most of our exchange partners offer courses taught in English. In some cases, courses taught in German, French, Italian, Spanish or Portuguese may also be available. Proficiency in the language of instruction is essential to successfully complete your credits abroad. Therefore, usually we will require some kind of proof of language proficiency, for instance a certain score on a language proficiency test.
Even though most of our students choose to do their study abroad during the final year of their Bachelor’s degree programme, we will already start preparing students during year 1, through general workshops about exchange opportunities, selection procedure and criteria, language requirements, etc. In year 2, students can participate in a more specific workshop. We aim to help you to prepare and make the most of your study abroad adventure!
