Foundation Certificate in Business

The Programme

Are you about to finish school and are undecided about which direction to take? Would you like to combine your gap year travel plans with a study programme which gives you a first taste of studying business? Then take a look at our Foundation Certificate in Business! This programme is designed to provide an understanding of key business subjects, and is ideal for you if you would like an introduction to studying business, or gain credits to enhance your secondary school qualifications.

The programme is flexible - you can choose to study for one or two semesters, so don't need to sacrifice an entire year studying and can use the rest of your gap year for fun activities like travelling. You'll study up to up to 5 subjects per semester, which combine business with personal and professional development. Each subject is taught in a series of interactive seminars lead by experienced lecturers who have both an academic and professional background. The theory is brought alive through guest lectures, mentors, and industrial visits. Where agreed, an internship placement in a company in our network can be arranged at the end of your study period.

Watch student Oliver talk about his experience at Globe College, and the internship we arranged for him: 


Each semester costs 8000 Euros (five subjects), or 1600 Euros per individual subject (you decide how many you want to study). Starting dates are in September or February.

​The College

In 2006 we had the vision of creating a third level business college in Munich that combines the Irish and German approaches to education. The dream back then was to develop students who can combine the science and art of business. So graduates, who in addition to their formal academic qualifications, have the ability to think on their feet, operate in dynamic environments, have great people skills, communication abilities and are driven by a growth mind-set. That vision has materialised into a college that is filled with individual students who benefit every day from a unique educational approach. This uniqueness comes from the fact that at the core of everything we do is a relationship model that puts the individual at the centre.

There's more to Munich than Oktoberfest, though that's a pretty good place to start! Munich is Germany's third largest city, lying to the north of the beautiful Alps. The city is a popular destination for young people, students and professionals from all over the world, due to its fantastic location and quality of life. Munich has a strong economic centre so has a wealth of job opportunities, with well-known enterprises such as BMW, Siemens, Infineon, Telefonica (O2), Allianz and Munich Re Group headquartered here.  As a Globe Business College Munich student you will get to know Munich as a local, explore the beautiful Bavarian countryside, and visit the wealth of cities in easy reach of Munich, including Prague, Salzburg, and Milan.
