Getting to know other university systems, with their different academic focus, and different cultures is essential for graduates of management, economics and social sciences. These experiences enhance both personal and professional skills needed for competently dealing with international business partners in negotiations, conferences and business dinners, be it as a guest abroad or when hosting international guests in Germany.

The Study Abroad Programme (STAP) provides an opportunity for a single-term stay at one of the WiSo Faculty's partner universities. STAP participants benefit from direct contact and organisational support at the partner university and are exempt from paying tuition fees there.

The WiSo Faculty, one of the very few German institutions to have been awarded the EQUIS label and the only German member of the exclusive PIM and CEMS networks, offers exchange opportunities with top ranked universities worldwide.
