Cooperative Bachelor's degree programmes

At HSBA, you can study Business Administration with numerous specialisations or with an international focus as in our degree programme International Management. 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. 


Bachelor of Science in Business Administration

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. 


Bachelor of Science in Business Informatics

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.

Business informatics specialists are in high demand on the job market. Since you learn how to solve business issues with the use of modern software, you are well prepared for a job in an increasingly digitalised society.


Bachelor of Science in International Management

Are you interested in business administration and would like to work in an international environment? Then our Bachelor programme International Management (BSc) is the right choice for you. In this English-language degree programme, you will learn all the basics of business administration, which are supplemented by internationally oriented modules such as international human resource management, intercultural management and regional studies or international business law.

With a Bachelor in International Management, you are perfectly positioned for a career in an internationally oriented company.


Bachelor of Science in Logistics Management

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.

Part-time undergraduate degree programme


Bachelor of Arts in Insurance Management

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.

FAQs

Can I apply for a study place directly with HSBA?

No. Students can only study at HSBA if they have concluded a contract of study with a training company. To apply with a company is always the first step in the application process.

What are the options of studying abroad?

About 30% of HSBA's Bachelor students spend time abroad during their studies (mostly short-stay at Summer Schools or as an exchange student with one of our partner universities). In the third year of studies of the dual programmes, students can go on an international study trip. Furthermore, HSBA attaches great importance to the international character of its content, offering a wide range of seminars held in English. Fore more information, please see here.

When should I start with my application?

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.
