The International Business Program (IBP) is designed to meet the needs of business and industry in the rapidly evolving global marketplace and aims to prepare students for international careers. Students graduate from this unique program with a thorough grounding in business, an understanding of other cultures, fluency in at least one language other than English, and concrete work experience in the global marketplace. In accordance with this philosophy, The College of Business provides students enrolled in the IBP program the opportunity to participate as international exchange students at one of URI's partner universities around the globe. The Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg) in Germany is one such university and plays an integral role in shaping IBP graduates into becoming the front-runners in the development of the new global economy.
HAW Hamburg is a city university and not your typical "campus university" that is so familiar at American universities. The university is split up over four locations throughout the city. Campus Berliner Tor is the main campus and home to the Faculty of Engineering & Computer Science and the Faculty of Business & Social Sciences. The faculties have their own libraries, labs and computer rooms on this site. The campus has a cafeteria and different cafes as well as a hall of residence directly on campus and another one a seven-minute walk away. It is situated in the middle of town, but only a few minutes on foot from Alster Lake as well as the Lange Reihe with its cafes and restaurants. On campus is the Lohmühlenpark, where you can take a break between classes. Sports lovers can use the gym and join the activities offered as part of the university sports program.
