The objective of this study focus is to prepare students for a possible India use as an expatriate/interface manager for India, so they are provided with an overview of the country and the issues they will encounter in professional everyday life in India, such as culture, macro- and micro-economics and political agenda.
The program will offer a Germany-wide innovative study focus that will enable graduates to fill future interface activities, respectively project management tasks as well as management positions in India or within the context of India. The offered interdisciplinary professional lectures with regionally specific components have been specifically tailored to the information needs for economists in the application-oriented approach.
In addition to the traditional methods such as lectures, internships and study abroad, students are offered opportunities on site to demonstrate and deepen their acquired skills during a 4 - to 8-week practical project.
The subjects of the study focus on India within the study program Business Administration are as follows:
Management and economy in modern India
Social, cultural and religious fundamentals of the Indian economy
One part of the lecture will take place in India as part of a field trip.

As part of the study focus, a study visit in India is very possible, but not mandatory. The University of Hof has plenty of Indian partner universities.
Furthermore, the practical semester in India is possible. The search for an internship company is in principle the duty of the student. The University of Hof supports the search within the scope of their possibilities.
To strengthen the intercultural competence within the context of a practical block, it is scheduled that the German students guide each a student of the GIMS program (German-Indian Management Studies) during the summer semester. For this purpose, they should participate in short intercultural trainings. During the semester they should keep together with GIMS students a fixed number of cultural, social and political appointments, e.g. visits to the movies and theater, celebrating an Indian festival, participation in discussions, shared cooking.
Individual students may apply for participation in the Summer School of BayIND designed for the regional and cultural studies in order to be able to gather additional experience regarding India. The two-week Summer School takes place once a year in the period of August/September. This event can as well be credited as a practical block.
