Bachelor in Economics

The law of 2003 establishing the University of Luxembourg specifies that a bachelor’s degree may only be awarded if the student enrolled at the University has completed a compulsory period of study at a higher education institution abroad. The University of Luxembourg has set this compulsory mobility period to a minimum of one semester.

That means the student studies for one semester at a university abroad.

 The benefits of academic mobility

The mobility semester at a foreign university allows students to:

1.     Enhance the value of their own study programme

2.     Develop specific skills for understanding the economic and social culture of the destination country

3.     Adapt to the requirements of the European and international labour market

4.     Have an additional asset when pursuing a Master’s degree or looking or a work placement

5.     Develop open-mindedness, language skills, autonomy and discover a new method of learning

Recruitment without borders    

Language skills are as important as technical skills. An international CV will have a greater impact on a recruiter. International experience is a definite advantage when entering professional life. Studying abroad demonstrates an open mind, resilience to other cultures and autonomy.

All areas of activity in economics and finance have broader, international and transversal implications. Future economists or financiers must be ready to apprehend and understand international economic issues.
