The East Asia Institute (German: Ostasieninstitut) founded in 1989, as part of the Ludwigshafen University of Applied Sciences. It offers four year or eight-semester programs (BA) in international business management combined with a country module of China, Japan, or Korea covering cultural and language studies.
The mission of the Institute extends beyond education to include the facilitation of business relations between the state of Rheinland-Palatinate and Asia (especially China and Japan).
Currently the Institute benefits from a steady partnership with the Chinese province Fujian and the Japanese region Iwate. The Institute is also a partner in business consulting MSEs and global companies doing business in Asia.
Depending on the country module chosen students spend one year (5th and 6th semesters) in China, Korea, or Japan studying at one of the affiliated universities. Students may elect to complement their studies by completing an apprenticeship.
The East Asia Institute has partnerships to the following institutions in the People's Republic of China, Korea and Japan:
Enrollment in the programme is limited resulting in small cohorts of selected students who largely stay together for the duration of their studies except during the year abroad where students are at different universities in China and Japan. The small group sizes and low teacher-to-student ratio leads to a strong group identity which extends beyond the studies in the form of a graduate network.
StEAM (Students of East Asia Marketing) is a student association which, among other, functions contributes positively to student life by promoting cultural and social events for students.
