Undergraduate Exchange Semester (UES)

The UES at Munich Business School is a program especially designed for international exchange students. We offer classes entirely taught in English as well as a few classes entirely taught in German. The main focus is on business in Germany and Europe as well as German language studies. The program is offered during the Fall semester (end-August to December) as well as during the Spring semester (mid-January to end-April).

The Undergraduate Exchange Semester (UES) is offered twice a year. Studies either start in fall (September-December) or spring (January-May). The respective semesters have slightly different content.

Munich Business School offers basic and advanced business courses as well as non-business courses. For more detailed information, please download the course catalogue.
