Information for Erasmus Students

With the international scope of our studies and the fact that we exclusively teach in English, the Working Group International Management and Governance is offering courses that are particularly interesting for foreign students. We warmly welcome Erasmus students to take part in our lectures and seminars. To acquire a basic knowledge in the area of International Business, we encourage you to have a look on the following two Bachelor level courses.

 

International Management

Bachelor level, summer semester

Learning outcomes:
The theoretical foundations of understanding the boundary choices and the geographical spread of firms, and an appreciation of the heterogeneity of the universe of multinational enterprises.

Contents of the course:
This course is concerned with the internationalization process of firms, their choice of the mode of entry, and the different methods and forms of cross-border organization.

Seminar
ECTS: 6

International Business Environment

Bachelor level, winter semester

Learning outcomes:
An understanding of the ‘costs of distance’, how formal and informal institutional differences between countries can be measured, and in what ways does this impact on the strategies of firms. An appreciation of the economic and non-economic roles of multinational enterprises and their impact on the home and host economies.

Contents of the course:
The origins and impact of the economic, social and institutional differences between countries, and their implications for firm strategy. The political and social role of multinational enterprises in their home and host countries.

Seminar
ECTS: 6

Please note that participation in our Master-level courses is only open to Erasmus students who are registered as Master students in Bremen.

Since many Erasmus students will need to leave Bremen before the usual examination period, we offer a separate examination for Erasmus students on the Bachelor courses. We aim to correct these examinations promptly, but please note that the transfer of grades between your home university and the University of Bremen takes some time. Please be aware of these aspects before writing us. Otherwise, feel free to get in touch with our contact person for Erasmus students.
