Course Struc­ture

After hav­ing suc­cess­fully com­pleted the two basic courses of the SBWL In­ter­na­tional Busi­ness in Semester 1, you take the fol­low­ing three ded­ic­ated courses:

Course 3: Strategies and Man­age­ment in Cent­ral Europe

Course 4: Struc­tural Dy­nam­ics in Cent­ral European Econom­ies

Course 5: Re­sources as Drivers of Con­sumer Be­ha­vior in Cent­ral Europe

Ap­plic­a­tion Pro­cess

Stu­dents ap­ply dur­ing the entry exam to the SBWL In­ter­na­tional Busi­ness by in­dic­at­ing their in­terest for the Cent­ral Europe Con­nect op­tion (simply by tick­ing a box).

20 stu­dents will be ac­cep­ted for the Cent­ral Europe Con­nect Joint Cer­ti­fic­ate Pro­gram on top of the reg­u­lar num­ber of stu­dents ad­mit­ted to the SBWL In­ter­na­tional Busi­ness.

Fin­an­cial Sup­port

Travel, ac­com­mod­a­tion and liv­ing ex­penses dur­ing the blocked courses abroad gen­er­ally have to be covered by each stu­dent.

Stu­dents are strongly en­cour­aged to ap­ply for a CEE­PUS grant (Cent­ral European Ex­change Pro­gram for Uni­versity Stud­ies) for the two stays abroad. This will not cover all costs, but is to be con­sidered as fin­an­cial sup­port for travel and ac­com­mod­a­tion ex­penses dur­ing the blocked course weeks in Brat­is­lava and Warsaw. De­tailed in­form­a­tion will fol­low after ad­mis­sion to the SBWL IB and the CEC track.

Joint Cer­ti­fic­ate

After suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of Cent­ral Europe Con­nect, stu­dents re­ceive an of­fi­cial joint cer­ti­fic­ate signed by rep­res­ent­at­ives of all three in­sti­tu­tions, WU, EUBA and SGH.
