Admission requirements

As a rule, a university entrance qualification (German “Abitur”) is required for our Bachelor’s study programs. The regular duration of study for our part-time study programs may be reduced to seven semesters for students with recognized business training. Applicants must fulfill the following requirements to attend a Bachelor’s study program at the Business School:

    • General university entrance qualification (German “Abitur”, eligible to study at all higher education institutions and in all German federal states)
    • Subject-linked university entrance qualification (German “fachgebundene Hochschulreife”, eligible to study the corresponding subject in the federal states identified in the certificate)
    • Advanced technical certificate (German “Fachhochschulreife”, eligible to study at a university of applied sciences or in a two-cycle study program at a university in the federal states identified in the certificate)
    • A master craftsman certificate or one of the following in accordance with the act on access to higher education institutions in the state of Hessen for people with professional qualifications: Completion of professional advanced training of at least 400 hours; a technical college, vocational, or administrative academy qualification; or successful completion of a state-recognized commercial apprenticeship with subsequent professional experience lasting at least three years as well as a special university admission assessment

    To be admitted to the university, students with degrees from countries other than Germany must provide evidence of equivalent status.

    All applicants must also undergo the institution’s own selection process. For more information, see the FAQs.

    Applicants with a subject-linked university entrance qualification or advanced technical certificate whose certificates do not mention the Federal State of Hessen should call our free information hotline on 0 800 / 3 400 400 – we will be happy to help and look forward to your call!
