Study Models

Our Bachelor in Business Administration (BSc) offers you the opportunity to take your core modules (first 3 semesters) either completely in English (English Core Track) or completely in German (German Core Track).This not only differentiates the language of your modules, however also the Study Model. If you choose to take the German Core Track, then you will study in either our 3-day Model or the Block Model. If you choose the English Core Track, then you will study in a normal full-time Model.

No matter which Study Model you choose, the length of your studies will always be 7 semesters. The advantage of our different Study Models is that you get to choose whether you want to also gain significant practical experience during your studies or focus mainly on your academic education.

English Core Track

If you choose our English Core Track, then you will have normal 4 to 5-day a week schedule. Of course this can vary each semester, however usually you would have at least 1 day off during the week (lectures can take place between Monday and Saturday). It is also possible to take on a student working job on the side of our full-time model.

German Core Track: 3-day Model

The Bachelor of Science German Core Track follows a unique time model that permits you to work part-time whilst pursuing your full-time Bachelor’s degree. We call this the “3-day Model”.

Students typically attend classes three days a week, either on Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays or on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. This leaves three working days during the week for self-study, language courses or student working job opportunities. This model is suitable for students with a cooperation partner as well as for students who would like to take on a working student job in addition to their studies.

German Core Track: Block Model

If you choose to the German Core Track and want to study with one of our cooperation partners, then you might be asked by them to study in the Block Model. The Block Model allows you to switch between a few weeks of studying and a few weeks or work throughout your whole studies. Your cooperation partner will let you know whether you should choose this option or not.


Core Curriculum

During the first three semesters of your Bachelor in Business Administration (BSc) you will take core modules which will give you a great foundation for your business degree and introduce you to a variety of topics. You will have the choice to take the core modules either completely in English or German through our "English core track" or "German core track".


During your second semester you will then decide what subject you would like to specialise in. You will have the choice between seven concentrations: Auditing and Consulting, Banking and Finance, Digital Business, General Management, International Management, Management, Philosophy & Economics, Marketing. Your concentration modules will start in the 3rd Semester and go through the whole 4th semester. All concentration modules are taught exclusively in English.

Semester Abroad

All Bachelor in Business Administration (BSc) students at Frankfurt School spend at least one semester abroad which includes an internship.

Advanced Study Phase

During these two semesters, you can choose modules from a broad range of topics to suit your interests. We offer approximately 45 modules in the areas of Finance and Banking, Managing Organisations, Economics, and Business and Society. Some concentrations also have advanced specialised modules in semesters 6 and 7.


As the final part of your studies you will write the Bachelor Thesis, usually during your last semester.

Cooperation partners allow you to gain valuable work experience during your studies, pay you a good salary and cover part of your tuition fees. The exact amount depends on the cooperation partner you work for.

Please be aware that our cooperation partners partially advertise their positions online up to one year in advance! So make sure you apply as early as possible.

The application process is completely independent from your application to Frankfurt School, so you do not need to be admitted to apply. You must apply through the companies website. The best would be if you applied to Frankfurt School and your preferred company at the same time. Our Auditing and Consulting concentration is an exception, as once you have been admitted we will directly forward your application to KPMG. You do not need to apply to KPMG yourself.

In case you have any further questions regarding our cooperation partners, please feel free to contact us.

Semester and internship abroad

The 5th semester abroad is an integral part of the Bachelor of Science. Firstly, you will go study at one of our over 100 partner universities. This will be an exciting and challenging experience. Every partner university offers different opportunities. The Frankfurt School International Office will support you with organising your semester abroad.

You will then also do an internship abroad which will allow you to gain practical experience around the world. The internship can be done in a different country from where your exchange university is located. Our Career Services will assist and support you during your search for an internship.
