The Bachelor in Business Administration (Bachelor of Science) at Frankfurt School of Finance & Management is a 3.5 year program. Currently, we have more than 900 degree-seeking students in the program, slightly less than half of the School’s overall student population. In addition, some 60 to 70 exchange students join the program each semester from one of our partner universities around the world.

The structure of the program

Phases of the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration

The program is seven semesters long. It has three parts: a Basic Study Phase lasting three to four semesters, one or two semesters abroad, and a two-semester Advanced Study Phase.

The Basic Study Phase includes a common core of fourteen modules in semester 1, 2 and 3. At the end of their second semester, students select one of currently seven Concentrations, with specialization courses running in semesters 3 and 4. The core modules can be studied in a German or an English track. Everything else is fully taught in English.

The students spend their time abroad at one of our more than one hundred partner universities around the world. They also do an internship abroad.

After coming back from abroad students spend two semesters of advanced study. They choose mostly electives from a broad pool of more than forty modules from the areas Finance and Banking, Managing Organizations, Economics, and Business and Society. Students also write a Bachelor Thesis during the last semester.
