Your international studies:
Think global, study
and work local

We live in a globalised world that is growing even closer together. This progress affects all business areas. Our partner companies are of course also involved in the worldwide market and are internationally interwoven. The challenges that this development brings along, can only be handled by qualified specialised management personnel. Language skills and experience abroad have become indispensable soft skills in professional careers.

Making studying internationally easy: Study abroad with Erasmus+

Get to know another country, make international contacts and bring your foreign language skills to perfection – a degree programme with a semester abroad offers all of this. In an international degree programme, you will gain important experiences from which you will profit in your future career. Going abroad is not required in the study programmes at HdWM, but all students have the chance complete a semester abroad at one of our partner universities or take part in the Erasmus+ Programme.

International Studies at a HdWM Partner University

Thanks to a constantly growing number of partner universities, HdWM can offer a degree programme with a semester abroad. This network is regularly reviewed for quality aspects so that you can expect HdWM quality even during your exchange semester. Additionally, we have learning agreements with our partners to make sure that the semester abroad does not extend your time at the university unnecessarily. Thanks to close communication, we make sure that the course content at HdWM is aligned with the course content at the foreign university.

Study in Europe with the Erasmus+ Programme

If your dream destination lies within the bounds of the European educational landscape, your previous studies will generally be approved without any difficulty thanks to the bachelor's and master’s system. Moreover, you have the opportunity to complete a degree programme with a semester abroad at one of our partner universities or in the framework of the Erasmus+ Programme, one of the best-known and most popular exchange programmes for international studies within the EU. The Erasmus+ Scholarship Programme is an initiative of the European Union for the support of education, youth and sports into which the previous EU-Programmes for life-long learning, youth and sports as well as European cooperation programmes at university level were subsumed. The Erasmus+ Programme subsidises exchange students in European institutions of higher education. It is based on the principle of reciprocity: If one foreign university sends five students to HdWM, five students can likewise complete a semester abroad at the foreign university.
