Flexibility at its best - Our bridge semester

In addition to the high-quality transfer of knowledge in teaching according to the CORE principle and thus in addition to the training of technical, social and methodical competence application, the personal development of the students is also important to our university. Therefore, we have now introduced the so-called bridging semester in order to offer a maximum of flexibility for exactly this personal development. How does this work and what are the requirements? Quite simply.

You have reached 90 CP in your Master´s degree program? Perfect. We now offer you two options:

  1. You continue your studies and graduate as soon as possible
  2. You take a semester break and use this time to find a job, do internships, get a taste of companies, learn languages, acquire cultural competencies or whatever enhances your skills. You do not have to pay any monthly fees for this semester. Of course, your studies will continue for one more semester.

You can use this bridging semester as a bridging semester at the earliest after reaching 90 CPs and at the earliest after finishing the 3th semester in terms of personal and professional development and remain enrolled. A fee is charged for this semester, but the last semester is then free of charge. The bridging semester is limited to one semester. You can indicate yourself if you have reached the required CP before the bridging semester.

The possibility to apply for a semester off remains. The bridging semester is a parallel existing attractive alternative.

Professor Betriebswirtschaftslehre
In the sense of our integration project "Allstay 4.0" we offer a maximum of flexibility and would like to promote personal development of our students. Students can use the bridging semester for upgrading their language and skills or for networking.
