No, BSBI is a Business School offering recognised undergraduate and postgraduate programmes via collaboration with universities.

Yes, degrees delivered at BSBI are awarded by Universitá Telematica Internazionale UNINETTUNO, a no-state Italian university accredited by the Italian Minister of Education, University and Research, specialised in blended and online international programmes. UNINETTUNO is authorised and has the jurisdiction to deliver programmes, sponsor visas and conduct teaching activities in Germany. UNINETTUNO is a recognised university in Italy and globally, whose awarded degrees fulfil the criteria of the Bologna Process of Universities. Please consider that each individual member state of the EU can have its own rules regarding the recognition of specific degrees.

Under the title “master’s degree of Primo Livello”, the study programme does not guarantee a direct entry to a third cycle degree such as a DBA or a PhD in any university, as you also need a solid research proposal and usually five years of previous education in the first and second cycles. Doctorate applications are assessed on their merit and each university and country has their own admissions criteria. However, all graduates that we know with a UNINETTUNO master’s degree did not encounter any problem in being accepted. UNINETTUNO is now also offering via BSBI its own DBA course for students who wish to progress from their postgraduate qualifications, in Berlin.

No, according to student contract, it is clear that if a student fails to submit on time or did not successfully pass his or her assignment, we require a resubmission which will incur an admin fee of 100 Euros. The cost covers the resubmission of the assignments as well as the marking. Students who have experienced personal circumstances, such illness etc. will not be charged.  

Our university partners’ degrees are recognised across Europe and the rest of the world as well as being approved by Anabin as an H+. You can visit the website and easily find UNINETTUNO on their database.

The DAAD website is only for German institutions and awarding bodies, which means that BSBI is not required to be featured on the DAAD website. Many international universities teaching degrees in Germany are not on the platform for the same reason.

That is correct – a Hochschule is a different kind of institution and BSBI is not meant to be listed on this type of website.

This varies depending on which course you are studying, but we generally recommend a minimum of 40 hours per week, which is the combination of face-to-face, online and self-study.
