International Teaching

Teaching at ESB Business School has a consistently international orientation. We are continuously working on expanding this international focus to promote the intercultural competence of our students. Students at ESB Business School should…

… understand how to apply subject-related knowledge in a variety of different cultures.
… develop the ability to communicate in their discipline with people from different cultures
… develop the skills that are necessary in a global labour market.

The internationalisation of our teaching takes into account all the aspects of the learning process, subject content, teaching methods and integrated international mobility.

Languages

The ability to communicate in a variety of languages enhances open-mindedness and responsiveness to other cultures. This is why all of the bachelor and master students at ESB Business School learn to speak at least one foreign language fluently.  

In addition to the range of languages in their study programme students can enrol for language classes at the Reutlingen International Office (RIO). The RIO Institute of Foreign Languages offers, for example, courses in Arabic, Chinese, English or Russian.

“I really appreciate being seen not only as a language teacher but also as a “door opener“ and intermediary. The students and professors I work with realise the importance of language as a key skill not only for understanding foreign words but also for grasping the culture and identity of other people.”
