Further information provided by the department

  • Special features regarding teaching
    The central profile element "Internationality" is reflected clearly in the teaching. This is shown by content with international relevance, the extensive range of business languages, the teaching of cross-cultural competence, as well as the obligatory or optional element of the period of study abroad at one of more than 150 partner universities. The widely differentiated study concept promotes specialisation as early as the application stage (functional, sectoral, and regional specialisation).
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Several modules are taught in English and/or have content with a particularly international orientation. The English-taught subject modules at the HSB see the participation of visiting students from international partner universities who work with German students on finding solutions to case studies. Thanks to compulsory or optional stays abroad, for which the students are prepared by cross-cultural coaches as part of the curriculum, graduates will face a world of opportunities. The stay abroad includes an academic and practical semester abroad.
  • Common partner universities for exchange
    Shanghai Normal University, China; University of North Carolina at Wilmington, USA; Misr International University in Kairo, Egypt; Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, Japan; Universidad Popular Autónoma des Estado de Puebla, Mexico; Universidade Federal do Ceará, Brazil; Universidad de Lima, Peru; University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield, England; KEDGE Business School in Marseille, France; Hanzehogeschool Groningen, Netherlands
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    The students can use approximately 100 computers, including extensive peripherals, in five PC rooms for teaching and self-study. All workstations are connected to the campus network, and have Internet access. In addition, the campus features a campus-wide wireless LAN. All course rooms have permanently installed projectors. There are extensive electronic library resources (over 6,000 e-books/journals) available.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    Degree programmes have various links to the faculty's research activities. In several institutes, professors and other academics work in the field of socio-economic research. This means that there is regular input for teaching; in return, opportunities arise for students to be involved in ongoing research projects. 4 cooperative doctorates in the period 2013-2015.

  • Support for founders
    BRIDGE, the Bremen University initiative to promote entrepreneurial thinking, start-ups and entrepreneurship, provides a course programme focused on entrepreneurship. Interested parties are offered over 20 sessions each semester to develop and/or improve their start-up skills. The Bremen programme for company start-ups by students and Young Professionals (BRUT) support students shortly before the completion of their studies, alumni, doctoral graduates, academics qualified to teach at university, scientific staff and young professionals.
  • Characteristics of assistance to differently abled persons
    Students with disabilities are taken into account already prior to the commencement of studies. There is a network of representatives for students with disabilities, which ensures counselling before and during the studies as well as support alongside the studies (e.g. information about regulations on equalisation of hardship and disadvantages, barrier-free website with information for students with disabilities). The general part of the exam regulations regulates the equalisation of disability-based disadvantages. The buildings of the HSB generally provide barrier-free access.
  • Characteristics of diversity advancement
    Equality is taken up and perpetuated via a central Women's Representative responsible for the area of science and a decentralised Women's Representative at the department level. The HSB has participated in the "family-friendly university" audit since 2005. The university has two childcare facilities for young children. Positioned internationally and cross-culturally, the HSB does not only promote diversity within the university, but also organises the Bremen Diversity Award, thus promoting a culture of diversity in the entire region.
  • Other special features
    The direction of the entire study programme is based on the concept and years of experience that prove that a range of different specialist courses structures can achieve an extraordinarily high level of identification amongst students and teachers with "their" course of study. This is proved by very stable figures for applicants, students and graduates over many years.
