International Relations

Thinking as many, acting as one

The school strives for sustainable internationalisation by encouraging all entities (central and decentral) to collaborate with one another. International Relations coordinates the international activities of ESB Business School. Each study programme at ESB Business School has its own officers who support and advise students on international matters. At least once a semester representatives from degree programmes and central offices meet in an “internationalisation committee” to discuss international affairs, identify areas of improvement and corrective measures. A combined bottom-up and top-down approach towards internationalisation has been adopted.

Goals

International Relations is dedicated within a cross-faculty working group to the following internationalisation goals:

  • supporting the further development of international degree programmes and of the double degree programmes
  • fostering a diverse international community and promoting intercultural competence
  • ensuring sound quality management in internationalisation
  • helping expand the international research networks
  • promoting mobility of teaching staff and international researchers
  • achieving sustainability with respect to internationalisation initiatives
  • developing and supporting an international network of academic and corporate partners
