*In addition to all English-language MBA-programmes, this includes the following English-language programmes: BA Business Administration, BA International Management, BA International Management, BSc Computer Science, BSc Data Science, MA Management, MSc Artificial Intelligence, MSc Computer Science, MSc Data Science.
Please note that not all elective compulsory modules are recognised by LSBU and you do not qualify for the dual degree if you choose them.
With a general entrance qualification (university entrance qualification) or advanced technical college certificate (vocational school diploma: academic and practical part) you can join our Bachelor’s degree programme straight away and without taking an exam. With a subject-related entrance qualification, depending on what subject you focus on, you can either start your Bachelor’s study programme straight away or get started with a trial period of study.
Graduates from Waldorf schools and the Baden-Württemberg Vocational College may need to get their school or college to recognise their certificate and verify any additional achievements if they wish to study in another federal state. To get the recognition, please contact your school or college.
You can, however, also study without a (vocational) university entrance qualification at the IU International University of Applied Sciences. You just need:
- A master craftsman’s diploma/certificate or
- Advanced further training (e.g. as an IHK business administrator) or
- Vocational training of at least two years with subsequent work experience of at least three years (full time): Depending on what you want to study and the focus of your training and professional activity, you can get started with a trial period of study immediately or prove your eligibility to study another way.
We, therefore, ask for proof of your English language skills*. If English is your native language or you graduated from an English-speaking school/university, you don’t need to prove your English skills.
- TOEFL (minimum 80 points) or
- IELTS (minimum Level 6) or
- Duolingo English-Test (minimum 95 points) or
- Cambridge Certificate (minimum Grade B) or
- equivalent proof (e.g. Speexx B2.2 Certificate, complimentary when signing up with IU)
*Proof must be provided before the start of the study and must not be older than two years.
