Course Description


The teaching language is a combination of English and German. The ratio depends on the subjects in the first semester (Informatics introduction almost 75% German, Management Introduction 100% English). The later ratio between English and German language courses depends on the exact subject choices made by the students. Up to 85% of the total curriculum is taught in English.
