Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - School of Business and Economics

Information about the beginning of your studies

You decided to continue your study at our faculty. We look forward to meeting you and would like to offer you some advance information to make your first weeks at our university a little easier.


Introduction week events of bachelor's courses in Business Administration and Economics (as mono-bachelor's degree or combined bachelor's degree)

A week before lecture time we hold an ‘Induction week’ (see event dates in German, online from September). During this week, our faculty will offer introductory events to give you important information about training in the individual subjects, course and examination regulations, language training at Humboldt-Universität, opportunities for studying abroad and more. Members of the student council will help you with answers on how to organise your timetable, show you our faculty and will be available for individual conversations.

There will also be a mathematics induction course. The content of this induction course is a prerequisite for the regular mathematics lectures held in the first semester.

A registration the for the introduction week events (including the mathematics introduction course) is NOT required.
