The FH Aachen Faculty of Business Studies offers a wide range of business courses. Our degree programmes cover the fundamentals of business studies and, at the same time, allow students to deepen their knowledge by choosing a specialization. Lectures and seminars at the FH Aachen are held in German and in English. Please coordinate with your home university to decide on the number of courses you have to complete during your exchange studies. Students at the FH Aachen, as well as Incoming Students, usually accomplish 30 ECTS per semester (this corresponds roughly to six courses). Bachelor courses are worth 5 ECTS, master courses 6 ECTS.
Please note that bachelor students are not allowed to take master courses.
