Your term abroad at the WiSo Faculty


The Faculty of Management, Economics and Social Sciences (WiSo Faculty) of the University of Cologne offers its students an enormous selection of study fields and specialisation options. The interdisciplinary approach thus taken seeks to link up the Faculty’s four subject divisions: Business Administration, Economics, Political Sciences and Sociology.

As reflected in the WiSo Faculty’s mission statement, “Innovation for society”, excellent research coupled with close ties to the economy has resulted in top positions in a variety of rankings. In addition, its central campus location and strong focus on internationalisation – with over 300 guest students annually – have made the Faculty an ideal place for exchange semesters.

Incoming guest students are enabled to choose from a wide-ranging and attractive course offer in English or German. During their stay they receive comprehensive advice and support from the International Relations Center of the WiSo Faculty (ZIB WiSo). The German language course free of charge, Welcome Days, a Buddy programme and  PIM & CEMS Student Club activities all guarantee that international students will quickly find their way into Cologne University life.
