Diploma Program

International Economic and Business Studies


"I have chosen 'International Economic and Business Studies' because I am interested in business and economic subjects and I also like to speak foreign languages. On top of that this study program gives me the opportunity to study abroad at a non-German teaching university where I will be able to make new friends from different countries and cultures. Although the program is challenging there is still time to enjoy Innsbruck and its surroundings for sport activities. Skiing and snow boarding in winter is really great!"

Martin, IWW Student, 23

Program Profile

International Economic and Business Studies (IEBS) is a four-year diploma program and the ideal choice for students who want to obtain a broad range of management skills, learn about international economic affairs, and delve into foreign cultures. While the program is mostly taught in German, students complete two foreign language courses and complete one entire study year abroad (3rd year) at a non-German university or business school. This not only allows them to develop excellent language skills in English and/or another language; it also provides them with personal experiences that go beyond a “normal” university degree. The IEBS program offers high-quality education in management and economics, inspired by latest research findings and by an awareness of the current demands of the business world. In addition, students benefit from a rich student experience in a location that offers a vast array of outdoor activities and cultural events. [Read more...]
