Double Degree Programme

International Business Administration & Entrepreneurship

The cooperation between the University of Glasgow and Leuphana University Lüneburg enables you to complete an international degree programme with integrated semesters abroad in Glasgow – and to receive a Bachelor degree from both universities after successful completion of four academic years.

International Study Programme

As a student of International Business Administration & Entrepreneurship at Leuphana, you are able to apply for one of three programmes at the University of Glasgow in order to receive a double-degree:

  • Finance
  • Business Economics or
  • Business Management

The University of Glasgow is one of the oldest English-speaking universities and, as a founding member of the Russell Group, consistently ranks among the world's best universities in international rankings. The Adam Smith Business School at the University of Glasgow also stands for top-class research and teaching in the subjects of accounting and finance, economics and management.


The international cooperation between the University of Glasgow and Leuphana University Lüneburg takes place in Lüneburg (Germany) and Glasgow (United Kingdom). You spend the first two years of your studies in Lüneburg and the third and fourth year in Glasgow.

During your studies in Lüneburg you are officially enrolled for the Bachelor of Science in Interanational Business Administration and Entrepreneurship. In Glasgow you can choose between courses of the Bachelor of Finance and the Master of Arts in Social Science with different focuses.

If you decide to take the double degree, you must already prepare your application during the first semester at Leuphana University.
