Study at HSBA, exchange at HSBA and much more
Welcome to HSBA
Internationality is an essential component of a modern business school, especially in Hamburg as the "gateway to the world". HSBA therefore attaches great importance to the internationality of research and study content, offers a wide range of English-language modules and promotes stays abroad for all status groups. Here you will find information on study opportunities at HSBA for international students, HSBA's partner universities, study opportunities abroad, funding options, international activities at HSBA and much more.
Our cooperative Bachelor's degree programmes take place at two learning locations: at HSBA and at one of our cooperating companies. Each semester consists of a theoretical phase at the university and a practical phase at the company.
If you are interested in a cooperative study programme, you must first apply to one of our cooperating companies. You can find an overview of our cooperation companies in our "study place exchange": Study & Work Vacancies. If you would like to complete your studies in a company that is not yet listed on the "study place exchange", this is no problem. In this case, please contact us directly. We will contact the company of your choice.
In order to be admitted to study at HSBA, you must first meet the admission requirements of our university.
However, check in advance whether you can be admitted to higher education in Germany. The DAAD offers assistance. To find out whether your school-leaving certificate entitles you to study economics at a German university, visit the DAAD and Uni Assist websites. Is your school leaving certificate not yet sufficient? Then a visit to the Studienkolleg is often an option.
Are you eligible to study at a German university, but have questions about our admission requirements? Please send us an e-mail to info(at)hsba.de with the following documents:
In our Master's programmes, the courses take place alongside the job on individual attendance days or attendance weeks. Students usually work part-time (approx. 30 hours per week) in the company. You can find an overview of our admission requirements here.
If you are interested in a Master's programme at HSBA but are not yet employed, you can find out about our JOB & MASTER service here. Important: Most of HSBA's partner companies require a good knowledge of German, even in the English-language Business Development degree programme.
