Global Master School

The Global Master School (GMS) is based on a trilateral partnership between the University of Applied Sciences of Aschaffenburg, Seinäjoki University of Applied Sciences, Finland and the University of St. Louis, Missouri, US. These GMS are intensive summer, spring or winter schools of 6 ECTS/3 UC and explore a set of identified business and management related themes, allowing  students from all three participating institutions to engage and pool their knowledge and resources supported by academic inputs from lecturers from all three partners and practitioners. At Aschaffenburg University of Applied Sciences, these three GMS form an integral part of the English master‘s programme “International Management” (M.A.). The course language of all GMS is English.
