Focus on Asia

In response to the emergence of Asia as a major economic region, the Faculty of Business Administration and Economics has, since 2005, developed a cooperation network for the benefit of its students. This enables students to specialize in the economies of this area.

ASBE Program

With our program of Asian Studies in Business and Economics (ASBE) Masters students at the Faculty of Business Administration and Economics can choose to specialize in the study of the Asian Economic Area and/or Asian culture. The ASBE program is worth 40 ECTS, of which 30 ECTS have to be studied abroad. Since 2005/06 the ASBE program has been fully embedded in the university’s curriculum and can therefore be integrated in any of the Faculty’s Masters programs. Our partner universities are: in Japan, the University of Tohoku and the University of Oita; in China: the University of Tongji and the Beijing Institute of Technology; and in Korea the EWHA Womans University. The ASBE Program is one of the most successful international exchange and study programs at the Faculty and supported by the German Academic Exchange Agency (DAAD) through ISAP bursaries.

Summer Schools

This year the following Summer Schools are organised as part of the Asian Network:

  • Foreign Trade University, Vietnam: International Summer Program 2015: Insights into Vietnam, Hanoi, August 16th - September 5th 2015

International Student Forum

The aim of the International Students Forum (ISF) is to bring together students from different countries and cultures to enable them to develop an academic network through which they can explore global economic and societal challenges.

The Faculty of Business Administration and Economics at the Paderborn University is a founding member of the ISF.

The ISF meets biennially. The 7th ISF meeting takes place at the EWHA Womans University in Seoul, Korea, from August 10th -12th , 2015. The topic of this year's Forum is "Entrepreneurship, Corporate Innovation, and Economic/Social Fairness". Participating Universities are:
