The International Degree Programme in Global Management has a strong international orientation. Combining aspects of business management with intercultural management, it encompasses modules in the fields of economics, cultural studies, law and English. The programme consists of a four-semester phase at the Hochschule Bremen, a year abroad in an 'emerging economy' and a final phase of one semester Bremen. The degree programme prepares you to take on management tasks in international companies and organisations where intercultural skills are an increasingly sought-after requirement. A work placement comprising 20 weeks abroad is part of the curriculum. The geographical focus of the international programme is on ‘emerging economies’ in Latin America, Asia and Africa, so you will expand and deepen your foreign language skills. 

  • Spanish: Argentina, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Colombia, Mexico and Peru 
  • Portuguese: Brazil 
  • Indonesian: Indonesia and Malaysia 
  • English: India, Kenya, Namibia, South Africa and ASEAN countries, excluding Indonesia and Malaysia. 

Due to the clear focus on the field of economics, the Global Management programme is clearly distinguished from the Applied Business Languages degree programme. In contrast to the International Tourism Management degree programme, it is not tailored to industry-specific topics. The geographical focus and orientation to emerging economies means that the Global Management programme is also clearly distinguishable from the Business Administration/International Management degree programme. 

Career prospects

A stay abroad in an ‘emerging economy’ is a central component of the degree programme.  Against this background, the degree programme opens up career opportunities both in companies as well as in public administration or non-governmental organisations (NGOs). Through the mix of subjects, together with the programme structure and special language qualifications, you are suitably equipped to assume economic, ecological, political and cultural responsibility under the conditions of very different cultural situations. Comprehensive professional, social and intercultural competence as well as practical experience abroad in an emerging economy and knowledge of at least two foreign languages contribute to the competitive edge enjoyed by graduates of the Global Management programme. 

The degree programme lays the foundation for a later Master's degree, as you already acquire broad methodological competence.

Programme structure

Examination regulations (German)


The International Degree Programme Global Management promotes intercultural skills through student exchange. Many of the lecturers also have experience abroad. A significant proportion of the courses at HSB are held in English.

In addition, students from foreign partner universities take part in the courses every semester. This is a decisive advantage for you, as you can already have a local network at the time of your own year abroad. A one-year stay in the target region is a central component of the degree programme.

„The programme focus of the stay abroad is on “emerging economies” rather than developed nations, offering a perfect blend of business and culture.“
