Welcome to the Homepage of the Asian Studies in Business and Economics (ASBE) program
The Asian Region is currently gaining in both economic and cultural significance, and its economic growth is perceived as increasingly important to Europe. The ASBE program offers an ideal opportunity for students on any of the Faculty's Master programs to steer their career in this direction by opting for a study focus on Asian Studies in Business and Economics. When applying to this option it requires spending a winter semester at one of our partner universities in Asia.
VET-track: At Tongji University (Shanghai/China) students on the MSc Economics Education additionally have the opportunity to gain credits in the areas of vocational education and teacher training as part of their study programs.
Tohoku University study places: Tohoku University offers one study place at Masters level each summer and winter semester. However, unlike the other partner universities, Bachelor students can also apply here, including for a DAAD bursary.
