There are two Bryan School Partners in Germany:

  1. University of Mannheim
  2. Fachhochschule Rheinland-Pfalz (Worms)

Students who study in Germany have 2 options:

  • Take business courses in German at either school
  • Take German language and general ed. and (limited) business coursework in English in a program in the spring at Mannheim.

Students who choose the first option must have taken German through the 204 level. There is a wide variety of coursework to choose from at both schools in all business discipline areas. Students should be juniors, completed all pre-admit coursework, and have a GPA of 2.75 or better.

In the second option, students can take German language classes along with other coursework that is taught in English. Most of the courses meet GEC requirements. Occasionally, there is a business course in English that will work. This is a great program for second semester sophomores.
