For the four specialisations, the curricula will differ. As such, the second year consists of (compulsory) courses specifically designed for each specialisation. In the third year, there is some room for personal accents through the choice of a specific major and/or elective courses. Moreover, a personal touch can be given by the choice of courses during the obligatory half-year study abroad (if applicable).

The Bachelor’s thesis concludes the programme. The overview tables show the general outline of the programmes.

Choice of study direction:

Students will be informed about this during the Study Choice Information Day (period 5). Instructions are available on ELEUM.

IMPORTANT – Specialisation Emerging Markets
