One-semester exchange programme

Students on the MSc International Management programme may apply to spend Semester 2 at one of the following prestigious universities:

These institutions are recognised as among the leading institutions in Europe and are accredited by EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA: the “Triple-Crown” of business school accreditations. Spending a semester at either one of these institutions will add an extra dimension to your MSc International Management programme.  

Each of these institutions offers a range of modules taught in English, although students would also be encouraged to study the relevant language to increase their international and cultural dexterity. 


No further fees are payable: tuition is incorporated in your Exeter programme fee. Students are currently also eligible for an Erasmus grant, paid during your placement at the host university.
