About the Forum

The International Forum Economics and Management (IFEM) aims to provide a platform for communication between international students and German students about diverse topics. Through social activities and interesting discussions students get in touch with other cultures and have the possibility to talk about various customs, languages and economic research in different countries. Under the heading “Internationalization at home” German students obtain the opportunity to meet international students and the latter to get deeper insight into the German life. For successful participation confirmation certificates will be handed out.
