Program Details

The TH Nürnberg Georg Simon Ohm, founded in 1823, one of the oldest educational institutions of its kind in Germany, is a technical university that offers a unique combination of theoretical studies and practical training. Students will benefit from an extensive company network, which includes world-renowned companies such as Siemens, Adidas, Puma, Staedtler, and BMW. 

One of the largest technical universities in Germany, maintaining academic partnerships with more than 160 universities and institutions of higher education around the globe, the International Business programme offers double degrees with the International College of Management, Sydney/ Australia; the Seinäjoki University of Applied Sciences, Seinäjoki/ Finland; and the Providence University, Taichung/ Taiwan. The programme offers students the opportunity to specialize in a certain area, e.g., Finance, HR Management, International Economics, Marketing, or Operations Management / Logistics.

Students start with basic study modules during semesters 1 to 3, e.g., Business Mathematics, Foundations in Business Administration, Marketing, Finance, and Personnel Management. Besides English, additional language courses in Spanish, French, and Italian as well as “German for International Students” prepare students for their international careers. Students receive an application-oriented education which also includes special courses for developing soft skills (Presentation Techniques, Intercultural Communication).

There are NO tuition fees for the course.

Eligibility/ Requirements

International Business is a so-called Numerus Clausus (NC) programme. This means that you go must through a selection process after applying. 

Places are awarded according to the final average grade of the applicant’s university entrance qualification (e.g., school leaving certificate and/or periods of study). Applicants from EU-member countries can improve their average grade if high proficiency in the English language and/or work experience in a business-related profession can be proven.

Excellent skills in English (completed C1 level) are required, corresponding to the following minimum scores:

  • TOEFL (Internet-based test) 92 points
  • IELTS 6.5
  • TOEIC 705
  • Cambridge CAE grade C

International Business students have to take a second foreign business language – Spanish, French, or Italian for German students as well as German for international students. Students without any prior knowledge may indeed start at the beginner’s level (A1). Compulsory for the degree, however, is the completion of language classes at the B1 and B2 levels. It is strongly suggested to have basic language skills before the start of your studies.
