Berlin-Vienna-Zurich: Structured Mobility Program at Master's Level

In cooperation with Humboldt Universität zu Berlin and the Universität Wien, the Faculty is now offering a structured mobility program at Master's level. Entitled "Think Business, Go International!", it is aimed at outstanding Master's students who are majoring in Business Administration or Management & Economics.

Program overview

The two-part program consists of the exchange semester itself, in either Berlin or Vienna, and an additional summer school that rotates annually between the three institutions. It is designed to bring together the best young minds from all three countries, with the aim of building a sustainable network that focuses on more than just studying. More information on the programme can also be found on the websites of our partners:

Humboldt University Berlin

University of Vienna

The schedule for the upcoming summer schools is as follows:

2017 in Zurich: 11 - 15 September 2017

2018 in Vienna

2019 in Berlin

Simplified credit transfer

The program is based on white lists from all three institutions: participants compile their program of study using the options on these lists and are guaranteed that the credits earned from them will be transferred to Master's degree programs in Business Administration and Management & Economics.


Applicants are expected to demonstrate a high level of commitment in order to acquire additional theoretical and empirical knowledge in the field of quantitative business administration research.


Your application for the structured mobility program also constitutes an application for a grant from the Swiss government. However, your nomination is not a guarantee that you will receive the grant.

For the 2016/17 academic year, grants amount to CHF 1,500 per semester.


Participants who successfully pass both the summer school and the exchange semester will receive an official program certificate signed by the institutions involved.


The application period for fall semester 2017 is likely to run until mid-January 2017. The exact date will be published by no later than the start of October.

Late or incomplete applications will not be processed.

The application documents must be sent in English in a single PDF document (file name: Name_BERLIN_WIEN_ZUERICH_2017) via e-mail to and in printed format by post to the following address:
