Program Description:
Program Description:

UCF College of Business Administration has partnered with Berlin School of Economics and Law (BSEL) to allow students to study business in an international setting. With approximately 10,000 students, BSEL is one of the largest institutions of higher education in Germany’s capital city. The BSEL is distinguished by a clear focus on providing academic education strongly linked to real world skills, an intensive and diverse program of research, high quality standards and a strong international approach. The University’s portfolio of programs covers private and public sector business and economics, administration, law, security management and engineering. 

The Berlin School of Economics and Law (BSEL) has firm roots in Berlin, an excitingly cosmopolitan and international city. The German capital is also rightly renowned as one of the world's leading academic locations with a tradition including such seminal figures as Humboldt and Einstein, Virchow and Koch, and Meitner and Planck. Berlin’s present reputation in higher education and research also rests on an extensive and varied academic landscape not only comprising four universities, seven Universities of Applied Sciences and three Universities of the Arts, but also numerous private universities and over seventy extramural research institutes. Ranked as one of Europe’s most popular cities, not least thanks to an almost inexhaustible range of cultural amenities and events, Berlin has attracted around 165,000 students from Germany and abroad to live and study here.

Exchange students are given the option to participate in a two week German Intensive Language Course, which is offered prior to the semester free of charge. The course will start in March for the spring semester.

  • Overall GPA: 2.75
  • Must be a pre-business or business major
  • Must be in good standing (academic, conduct and financial) with UCF
