Bachelor in Management (BSc)

Frequently Asked Questions

C - Academics

  1. What are typical class sizes?

    The number of students in each class varies depending on the subject and the nature of class (lecture, seminar or tutorial). However, in most cases classes are small in order to make it easier for students to participate and work in groups.



  2. What is a typical week like?

    The Bachelor in Management (BSc) is a full-time programme. Courses usually total to around 17 hours per week, from Monday to Friday. For every 1 hour of classes, students should expect at least 2 hours of personal or group work.

  3. Do I have to pass all of my courses?

    Yes. All of the courses have to be passed in order to graduate from the Bachelor programme.

  4. What language skills do I need?

    Our programme can be followed entirely in English, and students thus need to be fluent in English at the start of the programme. For students interested in studying in Paris or Madrid in year 2, proficiency in French or Spanish is required, as some of the courses will be taught in the local language. We recommend that students applying for these tracks supply evidence of their Spanish / French language proficiency, as evidence of such qualification will be taken into account for track allocation. The target is level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The third year of the programme can be followed entirely in English in Berlin (German electives optional) or entirely in French in Paris (the target is level C1 of the CEFR in French).

    Native English speakers need to have some command of another language before starting the programme, and be willing to learn an additional language during the course of their studies.

    We offer language courses in all of our campus languages. Languages offered include: German, Italian, Spanish and French. Students wishing to learn another language can do so, however the costs associated with this may not be covered by the school. This is a case by case decision and needs to be discussed prior to admission into the programme.

  5. What is a Collective project?

    Throughout the year and in small groups, students develop a project in one of their fields of interest. Possible subjects may be linked with social life (e.g. organisation of a sports or cultural event), humanitarian aid or may be more business/digital oriented (e.g. setting up a crowd funding website for a social project).

    The project has learning outcomes linked with the programme but also reinforces student life and cohesion of the class.

    Students complete two different collective projects during their 1st and 2nd years.
