Foreign Language skills are an integral part of the Intercultural Management program. Intercultural Management is taught through English as a medium of instruction. Hence, applicants require strong English skills (B2) to apply and will further expand their ability to use English in an academic and business context. Intercultural Management students choose to specialize in either German or Italian. Austrian and German-speaking students require intermediate language skills in either Italian or another foreign language to be able to study Intercultural Management. Non-German speaking students require no Italian or German skills and can learn German as total beginners and reach level B2. Additionally, all Management students have the option to choose from our elective foreign language courses in French, Russian and Spanish.
