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.
