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.

Short-term Programs and Summer Schools

In the summer semester in 2013, the department of Economics held a first summer school program upon IT-Management for students of Tohoku University, Japan. This summer school program has also been offered in 2014 and 2015. In the summer semester in 2015, the program has been further developed and opened to the students of Paderborn. In the winter semester in 2016/17, the International Spring Program (ISP) has been offered for the first time. In this program, students from Tohoku University, Japan, Foreign Trade University, Vietnam, and University of Paderborn will be work on a project theme together as an international team. The ISP will be offered in winter semester 2017/18 for the second time. In the summer semester in 2017 a summer school which was part of the project MInkluWB (Mentoring-based Inclusion in business and economics study programs with regional focus on Western Balkans) took place at the University of Paderborn.

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:

  • EWHA Womans University, Korea
  • Oita University, Japan
  • Kyushu Sangyo University, Japan
  • Chiang Mai University, Thailand
  • Vietnam National University, Vietnam
  • Shenzhen University, China
  • University of Paderborn, Germany

Lecturer mobility

Academic staff visits are a key feature of the Faculty's cooperation with Asian Partner universities. Visiting scholars also contribute to the taught modules of the ASBE and to the Visiting Academics program at the Faculty of Business Administration and Economics.
