Would you rather combine business administration with the topic of digitalisation? Then you can choose our Business Informatics degree programme. Or are you mainly interested in logistics? In that case our study programme Logistics Management is the best choice for you. For those who already work in the insurance industry and would like to further develop their skills in this area, we also offer a part-time degree programme in Insurance Management. Except for Insurance Management all Bachelor’s degree programmes are dual, which means that they combine academic business studies with systematic on-the-job training.
Our dual Bachelor Business Administration (BSc) is a business degree programme. In the first year of study, you will learn the essential basics of business administration. From the second year, you have the opportunity to specialise in one or even two areas.
At HSBA we offer a wide range of specialisations such as Marketing, Finance, Data Science, Sustainability and Media Management.
Our dual degree programme Business Informatics (BSc) combines business management issues with digitalisation. The programme covers the basics from both disciplines business administration and computer science. Please note, that you need no previous knowledge before you begin with your studies.
Are you particularly interested in artificial intelligence (AI) or would you like to learn programming apps? Our elective courses, which you can choose during your studies, deal with these topics and others.

The logistics sector is one of the most important economic sectors in Germany. Would you like to know how it works and how goods, information and people get from A to B? Then you've come to the right place.
Our Logistics Management (BSc) degree programme combines business studies with issues from the field of logistics. In the first two years of study, you will learn the basics of business administration and logistics. In the further course of your studies, you can specialise further in the area of transport, warehouse or production logistics.
As a logistics manager, you have many opportunities because the sector continues to grow in the course of digitalisation. Many companies are looking for graduates who work at the interface between business administration and logistics.
In addition, HSBA also offers a part-time study programme in Insurance Management (BA). This is aimed at employees from the insurance industry who would like to improve their methodological competence as well as their specialist and management skills through an academic, industry-specific course of study.
As a prerequisite, you need to have completed vocational training as an insurance and finance administrator and further training as an insurance specialist.
The part-time lectures take place on Friday afternoons and Saturdays and are supplemented by a block week per semester. The course is taught in German, with an optional module in Insurance English being offered.

Anyone interested in taking a dual Bachelor programme should normally start looking for a training company at least one year before they intend to start their studies. The application to the company should include all the usual documents, such as school and examination qualifications and CV. The company then sends the study contract together with the necessary documents to HSBA, which checks whether the criteria for admission are fulfilled, and if so accepts the applicant.
