Course Module System

The University of Innsbruck School of Management offers a modular course system at different levels.

Every module offered at the University of Innsbruck School of Management consits of 4 hours per week. One academic hour is 45 minutes. Every module includes an input-oriented (VO = lecture) and an interactive part (PS/SE = proseminar/seminar). All modules will be assessed by written exams and group works and/or oral exams. The student has to sit written exams (Klausur) in the PS/SE classes during the semester. PS/SE interactive parts have to be passed in order to be eligible to sit the final exam (Gesamtprüfung) at the end of the semester. Students passing the final exam (Gesamtprüfung) receive 7.5 ECTS credits.

For every module students receive 7.5 ECTS credits. The number of students in a module is usually limited to 30-40 students. Only a limited number of modules is taught in English.

Modules taught in German require good command of German; we therefore strongly advise to brush up German language skills! 

Modules offered in the Basic Studies of the International Economic and Business Studies Programme ("1. Studienabschnitt" = 1st and 2nd year) are NOT open for exchange students!

 

Course Module Description and Course Catalogue

  • For Undergraduate Incoming Exchange students only modules from year 3 and 4 ("2. Studienabschnitt" = 2nd part of the study programme) are open. Students will receive information about enrolment and registration for modules in the  Introduction and Orientation Week  
  • Master Incoming Exchange students can choose modules starting with "MA - ". Master students have to get in contact with their master coordinator (if all application documents were sent, the name of the contact person will be sent to the student by e-mail).

Enrolment and Registration for Business Course Modules

Undergraduate incoming exchange students at the University of Innsbruck School of Management with a "Matrikelnummer" (matriculation number) and student ID from the University of Innsbruck have to register ONLINE for the modules of study year 3 and 4. Every exchange student has 2,000 points available to register for four modules per semester in the Undergraduate program. The amount of points can be allocated by preference of the student.

Course module enrolment is only open for registered students, i.e. the computer system  LFU online will only work after you have personally registered (not applied) at the University of Innsbruck. The course module enrolment will take place in the introduction and orientation week!

Some modules require entrance exams. The entrance exam is meant to be a preparation for the module and not a restriction. However, since some modules are project works with a limited number of participants, only those students who are prepared best can be accepted! The entrance exams will be held 7-10 days after the semester starts. Students have to study respective literature.

Introduction and Orientation Week

You will receive detailed information about available modules, registration and enrolment in the  Introduction and Orientation Week at the beginning of each semester. This week is compulsory for every incoming exchange student of the University of Innsbruck School of Management as otherwise exchange students miss a lot of important information. Please take note of this date while planning your journey to Austria!

The "ERASMUS Welcome" is an additional event for all exchange students from all faculties; it is NOT the "Introduction and Orientation Week" of the University of Innsbruck School of Management!
