BISS (Summer School & Spring School)

The Bochum International Summer School as well as the Bochum International Spring School were founded by the faculty of economics at the Ruhr-University Bochum. Both are supervised by the Chair of Macroeconomics.

The B.I.S.S. is aimed at students from different economics degree-courses (Bachelor, Masters and Diploma) in Bochum, but from other surrounding universities as well.

The B.I.S.S. offers courses from economics and business administration with international guest lecturers. Both the events as well as the exams are held or written in English.
