The DCGB is hosted within the Department of Border Region Studies and is most closely related to the GBR research group. See also this website.

The Department offers teaching at all levels within Business administration, Business Relationship Management, European Studies and Regional Economics. There are approximately 800 students from about 50 countries enrolled at the department. Teaching is conducted in English.
