Module content:
The study abroad period is an integrated part of the International Business Program and it is supervised and coordinated by the International Coordinator at the htw Business School. While studying abroad, students are enrolled in several courses at the partner university to earn an equivalent of 30 ECTS. Students are advised to choose the equivalent of 10 ECTS courses that will deepen their knowledge in their focus area at the htw, if possible. The selected courses are documented in a learning agreement that is signed by the International Coordinator before term start at the partner university. The recognition of the ECTS/equivalent of the non-European higher education institution acquired abroad is based on the transcript of records, bulletin de notes or a corresponding document.
