Prepare for a global economy

The intercultural programme Chinese-European Economics and Business Studies provides students with key insights into major aspects of economic development in China and Europe. The skills taught include analyses of specific aspects of trade relations and financial flows, and an understanding of the social and economic interrelations between these two geo-political regions.

Profile

China’s rapid economic development, it’s integration into the world market, as well as its significance for the global economy are changing the development of companies and institutions at a national and international level. Europe is still an important player in the world market. Its integration process is difficult but unique. In an intercultural setting, students will learn to describe major aspects of the economic development in China and Europe and learn to analyse trade relations and financial flows as well as social and economic interrelations between the two regions.

The cross-cultural learning and teaching environment is further supported by a mandatory semester in China. The staff involved in the Master´s programme are internationally-renowned academics and senior researchers. An international academic staff exchange is an essential element in the programme included in team-teaching.

The programme takes a comparative Chinese-European perspective in the majority of the modules. The programme offers an international and application-oriented approach towards a multidisciplinary and academic education in Economics and Business Studies.

The Master Chinese-European Economics and Business Studies Programme addresses applicants who have acquired their first degree (Bachelor/Diploma) and who have a particular interest in the field of the rapidly growing Chinese-European economic and business relations.

Participants in this programme will acquire a good base of knowledge in economics and business, as well as in the specific cultural and political foundations of China and Europe.

Students seeking to build a career in this field will also appreciate the intercultural learning and teaching environment in this Master´s programme.

The programme starts every year on October 1st.

Career prospects

Graduates from the M.A. European Studies programme are sought after wherever in-depth knowledge of Europe, its societies, institutions and cultures is needed.

About the programme

The Master of Arts programme in North and Latin American Studies combines North American and Latin American Studies into a single and unique syllabus which draws from a variety of academic disciplines and gives its students profound insight into the two Americas as distinct entities, as well as their global ties and relations. This answers to a rising demand for graduates with a broad academic background and specific knowledge of America, particularly at a time when North and South are growing together on many levels, while the gap between Europe and America is widening.
This is an accredited programme which has received the Seal of Quality of the Foundation for the Accreditation of Study Programmes in Germany.

Features

– Emphasis on both Americas
– Core subjects: Geography, Literary and Cultural Studies, Political Science and Business Administration
– The degree programme includes foreign study in Latin America in which students learn first-hand about the South Americans' attitudes towards their big neighbour in the north
– Transferable skills are developed with the aim of generating inter-disciplinary co-operation
– Students can create an individual study profile

Syllabus

The programme consists of three module groups:

A) Foundation module
B) American modules
C) Profile modules

A) General themes of the core module are intercultural communication and comparative cultural studies as relating to North and South America. This module draws from the course content and methodologies of a number of disciplines to lay the foundation for the profile-setting and consolidation in subsequent modules.

B) Module group B comprises the three American modules: Anglo-American Studies and Latin America (I), Political Science (II) and Geography (III). Students can set a specific focus by subject or geographic region.

C) In the two profile modules, Transnational America (I) and Management and Marketing (II), students may choose their electives in accordance with their own abilities and interests. This freedom of choice enables students to create a distinct academic profile and enhances their employability. The entire Transnational America profile module is to be completed in South America, e.g. while enrolled at one of the the University of Passau's partner universities in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador or El Salvador.

The degree programme includes a written Master's thesis on a topic chosen from module group B. Students who complete the programme will receive a total of 120 ECTS credits.

Program Brief. The LCT program is an international distributed Master program. Read more

Program Brief

The LCT program is an international distributed Master program. It is designed to meet the demands of industry and research in the rapidly growing field of Language Technology. Research and innovation in Language Technology is vital for many of the smart applications that are pervasive in modern daily life, such as virtual assistants, automatic translation services, search engines, voice-driven technology, social media analytics etc. Language Technology (also known as Computational Linguistics or Natural Language Processing) is an interdisciplinary field at the intersection of Linguistics, Computer Science and Mathematics (logic, probability theory, formal language theory, statistics). Hence, students in this program choose appropriate combinations of modules in Language Technology, Computational and Theoretical Linguistics, and Computer Science. Moreover, the students are able to acquire practice-oriented knowledge through our strong and continuous links with industry through internships, joint industry-academia supervisions, and the like.

Mobility

The program involves studying one year each at two different European partner universities. Optionally, a stay at one of the non-european partners for some months is possible, as well as an internship at any of our industrial partners. After completing all study requirements, the students obtain two Master degrees: one from each of the two European universities where they studied.

Study program

The course consists of compulsory core modules, as well as elective advanced modules in Language Technology and Computer Science, possibly complemented by an internship project, and completed by a Master Thesis.
