The network of French-German Universities (DFH) will continue to support scholarships for the French-German link of the BSc International Management Double Degree in cooperation with the NEOMA Business School in Reims and the MA European Management Studies in cooperation with the EM Strasbourg Business School for another four years.

The ESB bachelor’s and master’s courses are part of the sponsorship arrangement for integrated and semi-integrated degree programmes, whereby an independent commission of experts, appointed by the DFH, bases its decision on criteria such as the structure, content and the teaching within the programmes.

"We are very pleased that our programmes were once again able to convince the awarding body," says Prof. Dr. Sebastian Bunnenberg, head of the French-German link for the BSc International Management Double Degree. He also emphasizes that the DFH is about more than just funding: "The French-German University is a central contact point for university relations between Germany and France. We benefit enormously and are very grateful for the exchange within this network.”

Students in the two sponsored degree programmes receive monthly mobility assistance during their stay abroad. This financial backing through the DFH has been guaranteed until 2024.

The ESB Business School is a founding member of the DFH and since 1999 has been continuously involved in the network of now 194 higher education institutions from Germany and France.
