Each year, the WiSo Faculty offers its students the exclusive opportunity to participate in an exciting and challenging 6-week intensive programme in the heart of New York City. The WiSo@NYC programmes are planned and organised by the ZIB WiSo and enable you to earn up to 24 ECTS toward your degree.

Programmes in 2017 are scheduled Monday, 7 August to Friday, 15 Sept 2017 (6 weeks).

You are eligible to apply if you are enrolled in one of the following study programmes within PO2015 (students within PO2007 are eligible regardless of their study programme):

  • BSc Business Administration, BSc Economics, BSc Economics soc. (Schwerpunktbereich); BSc Information Systems (Ergänzungsbereich)

Accreditation of the programme toward your degree is a key aspect and all courses are designed to enable this. The specific course offer varies depending on whether you are an undergraduate or graduate student. However, regardless of your level you are able to earn up to 24 ECTS toward your degree.

Generally, the course content aims to address current US-American topics in the area of management, business strategy and economics, and displays an analytical and comparative approach to Europe. All courses are taught in English by US faculty.
