Business German and Tourism Management

    A cooperation between the Asian Studies program at the HTWG Konstanz and selected partner universities in ASIA: In this cooperation program, Asian students first complete a two-year program at their home universities, then finish their degree with a two-year program in Konstanz. Graduates earn a bachelor’s degree from both universities.

    The Business German and Tourism Management (WDT) program is a cooperation between the HTWG Konstanz - University of Applied Sciences and the German departments as our partner universities in Asia (China, Taiwan, Indonesia, and Malaysia). The two-year program in Germany offers students the opportunity to gain both expertise in international tourism management and general business administration, and to expand their German language skills. Our students receive multi-faceted professional qualifications for the international labor market. The program also offers students the opportunity to study together with German students (within the Asian Studies degree programs) in an international academic environment.

    In addition to the program coursework, students perform practical, real-world-oriented project work (together with German co-students) and thereby gain an intercultural perspective, which expands their horizons. They also improve their professional German language proficiency, as well as organizational and presentation skills, all key qualifications for international careers. In their final semesters, students can select additional courses in the area of management or foreign languages. They also have the opportunity to do a 3-month internship in a company in the German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland).

    Graduates from the WDT program can immediately start in an entry level position in Germany or internationally after completing their bachelor’s degree. They can also apply for master’s programs in management, intercultural communication, tourism or German as foreign language at German universities or at other universities around the world.
