The students receive two Bachelor degrees after 4 years – the Bachelor of Arts degree “Business Administration” awarded by the FOM University of Applied Sciences in Germany, as well as the Bachelor of Arts degree “Logistics”, awarded by the Chinese Wuhan Business University. The bachelor higher education course carried out according to German and Chinese standards prepares the graduates for management tasks, especially focusing on the area of logistics in internationally active companies.

The students are admitted by the Chinese partner university and start their basic course there, which continues over 5 semesters. During the study period in China they will not only be taught by lecturers of the Wuhan Business University, but also by educators from the FOM in Germany. After the basic course the Chinese students continue their academic training at the German FOM German-Sino School of Business & Technology in the Essen campus. The Bachelor Thesis is completed in Germany.
