This is a joint binational programme offered by the Université Lumière Lyon 2 and Leipzig University.
Regardless of which home university they are enrolled at, students from both universities study together at both universities, acquiring intercultural and additional language skills in addition to their specialist knowledge. During their first year in Lyon, students choose whether to specialise in the fields of economics and management, economics and society, quantitative economic analysis or finance. The second year of study is completed in Leipzig with a focus on either economics or business administration.
The programme lasts four semesters and students can specialise in various fields of economics and business administration. It leads to a double (binational) master’s degree.
The programme is recognised and supported by the Franco-German University in Saarbrücken (FGU). The programme organisers at the universities in Leipzig and Lyon coordinate the cooperation with FGU.
The programme focuses on equipping students with knowledge and methods from the field of economics and management science to prepare them for a wide range of professional fields. Graduates can find career opportunities on a national and international level in business, in economic and political organisations, as well as in science and scientific policy consulting.
