After completing the core Master courses at ESMT in the spring of your first year, you may take your elective courses at a partner institution. You will also be able to access additional benefits from your exchange school, such as student activities, career service support and on-campus recruitment events. Depending on the exchange school, you may choose to shorten your internship period or take your specialization courses abroad. No additional tuition fees are required.
Exchange partners and incoming exchange students can find more information about an exchange at ESMT on this dedicated webpage.
Further International Options
In addition to an exchange, you can strengthen your international exposure by choosing to take one of the following activities abroad.
You will be able to choose from a diverse offering of academic and practice-oriented options that can strengthen your intercultural skills, expand your professional network, and subject you to nuanced views of the global marketplace.
As part of your ESMT Master experience you will participate in an internship that can be located anywhere in the world. Recent students completed internships in Canada, Japan, India, Ethiopia, Malaysia, Russia, Ireland, and many more.
Foreign Language Training
All Master students are required to study a foreign language. The course costs are already included into the curriculum and tuition. Non-native German speakers are highly encouraged to learn or enhance their German language skills. Native German speakers will choose a language needed to effectively manage business relationships in the world's fastest growing economies. You will also have a free year of access to Babbel, the language learning app.
As a Master student, you are free to choose to complete your thesis work abroad.
