Acknowledging the need for internationalization and networking, we offer attractive overseas opportunities at top international universities.

While six of your modules are hosted by the Technical University Munich (TUM), four modules are held by the University of St. Gallen (HSG) in St. Gallen – both Triple Crown accredited by AMBA, EQUIS, and AACSB.
