Exchange of research at an international level

The Faculty welcomes and supports the exchange of research at an international level. Guest professors from abroad also help enrich course offerings each semester, as well as the many doctoral students and post-doctoral researchers from abroad. From 2015-2020, the Department of Business Administration even hosted a Guest Chair in International Management funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

There are also an increasing number of courses offered in English, as the Faculty seeks to create an attractive environment for exchange and degree-seeking students from abroad. Currently, there are more than 500 international students enrolled at the Faculty of Business and Economics. At university level, around 12 percent of all students come from abroad.

Key research focus regions for the Faculty of Business and Economics include regions such as Southeast Asia and Africa. To foster staff and student exchange with universities in Asia, the Faculty of Business and Economics established exchange programmes with Fudan University in Shanghai, China, Kobe University in Kobe, Japan, and with Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea.
