Dual Bachelor's programme in business administration with alternating theoretical and practical phases
The programme combines practice-related studies of business administration with simultaneous systematic in-company training. It gives students the relevant specialist knowledge in the individual areas of business administration, and enables them to apply it in the practical phases in the different departments of their training company. Students can select an appropriate study focus in their third year, to prepare them optimally for the requirements of the company in the respective areas and functions.

With the bachelor degree in Business Administration (Specialisation Finance) and as a banker certified by the Chamber of Commerce, I am now a Consultant of the Joh. Berenberg, Gossler & Co. KG. I assist wealthy individuals and families in all financial topics.
The dual study programme at HSBA was the ideal basis to continue my career in one of the big four auditing companies. The university has a very dynamic character and I am happy to have been a part of it – three very significant years.
I started to work in the internal audit department and during the audits learned more about the many different national and international subsidiaries and areas of the Otto Group. I find the way that HSBA and Otto support the further development of their students outstanding.
The dual programme integrates phases of theory at the university (on average 32 weeks a year) and practical phases of training in their training company (on average 20 weeks a year).
Students acquire practice-oriented business knowledge with a special focus on international management. During the course of studies, a further focus is also placed on teaching methodological skills. In the first two years of study, basic business management knowledge is taught and supplemented by method modules, intercultural basics and international law. In the second and third years, selected core subjects are dealt with in greater depth (Marketing Management, Financing, Strategic Management, International Accounting and Controlling). The third year of study is characterised by electives (compulsory elective subject, excursion) and the bachelor thesis.
HSBA has integrated various options into the study programme so that the study programme can be designed more individually:
Digital Toolbox: With the Digital Toolbox you have the possibility to prepare yourself for the digital transformation by choosing a profile during your studies. There are a total of six digital profiles:
Elective: The compulsory elective subject, which takes place in a block week across all study programmes, enables students to deal intensively with a business management problem of their choice.
General Electives: The general electives give students the opportunity to develop their individual knowledge and skills further. The offering ranges from social skills and IT seminars to studium generale events and smaller electives where students can tackle selected business administration content in a more in-depth manner. Foreign language courses are also on offer on an extracurricular basis.
Study Trip: A special highlight for all students is the study trip. The excursions, which span several study programmes and include numerous company visits and lectures, are organised independently by the students. Current topics such as digitalisation, the start-up scene in Silicon Valley or emerging countries frame the content of the individual destinations.
The tuition fees are EUR 665 per month. The companies generally pay most of the course fees, at least if the student remains with the company after finishing his/her degree. In addition, students generally receive traineeship remuneration, the amount of which depends on the industry and company in question.
