Course information and exams


Course module system

The University of Innsbruck - Faculty of Business and Management offers a modular course system at different levels.

Every module consists 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 each module. 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 (B2 at least). We therefore strongly recommend 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!

Enrolment and registration for business course modules

General procedure: Undergraduate incoming exchange students at the University of Innsbruck - Faculty of Business and Management with a "Matrikelnummer" (matriculation number) and a 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.

Support for the course enrolement: The course module enrolment will take place in the introduction and orientation week. Course module enrolment is only open for registered students, i.e. the computer system  LFU online   will only work after you have created a personal account at the University of Innsbruck (notice that this registration is not the same as the general application).

Entrance exams: Some modules require entrance exams. The entrance exam is meant to be a preparation for the module and not a restriction.

The entrance exams will be held 7-10 days after the semester starts. Students have to study respective literature.
