Business English

The Faculty of Management, Economics and Social Sciences (WiSo Faculty) offers subject-specific language courses in Business English and English for the Social Sciences in cooperation with the Englisches Institut Köln.

The course is worth 6 credit points if you attend the course regularly and pass the end of semester exam. For bachelor's students of most study programmes of the WiSo Faculty (except students of business education [Lehramt BK1]), the course can be taken as part of Studium Integrale (SI). Master's students can take the course as part of their extracurricular modules (EA = Extracurriculares Angebot). Additionally, all students receive a certificate at the end of the course (after taking the exam) indicating their language level.
