    Cologne Business School

    Zwei Fliegen mit einer Klappe schlagen. This is the German equivalent of our saying, “To kill two birds with one stone.” As a business student studying abroad in Cologne, Germany, you can kill two birds with one stone. You can have an international education experience while simultaneously fulfilling your major requirements! Many students worry that if they spend a semester abroad, they will fall behind in their studies and risk not graduating on time. However, the Hamline partnership with the Cologne Business School (CBS) allows students to supplement and fulfill requirements for their undergraduate business degrees at Hamline.

    Students have the option to study at CBS for a semester or a full year. Students who study abroad during the fall semester will be automatically enrolled in a 4-credit course "The European Political Framework." Students who study abroad during the spring semester will be automatically enrolled in a 4-credit course "Introduction to European Business." Hamline students are required to enroll in a beginning, intermediate or advanced 4 credit German language course (no previous knowledge of German is required). This allows students to choose two 4 credit business electives from CBS’ diverse business majors and specializations.
