Personal recommendation
It is great university for those who care more about academic achievements rather than social engagement. This is tipical university town, so there is not so much to do unless you are prepared to travel to Stuttgart (around 40km). But the atmosphere for studying is great.

The most important thing is to speak at least a little bit German. Although university staff is very friendly and speaks English, outside of the university only German is spoken. Although there is not much sightseeing in Tuebingen it is quite conveniently situated not far from other cities. Also it is not very far from Switzerland and many students go there for a weekend. If there is a chance it is better to rent a room/flat individually since dorms are quite noisy. In case there are no rooms in Tuebingen itself, other towns like nuertingen are worth to have a look. The train fares are quite expensive but comfortable and fast.

Some hints on registration at University and Campus(you need to to submit papers and the working ours are restricted to half a day sand then you can come on Weekend and not be able to register at campus i.e. you would need to look for an accomodation)

I worked on my PhD at this University and I am sure it was the most appropriate place for studying, collecting material and writing. The university spirit which dominates in Tuebingen constantly inspires your work .

Not to chew bubblegum (even just having the tiniest amount in your mouth and not even chewing wildly) when meeting with a professor, even if he had studied in America and was somewhat Americanized.

They are actively trying to cater to international students, and have implemented Bachelor degree programs. If you get accepted as a Vollstudent, they are keen on your success.

Have thick skin and be overwhelmingly sure you want to tackle such an endeavor: lots of bureaucracy involved. Adapt and be flexible!

It's a great idea to study abroad for a full year, because you almost need one semester to get adjusted to the way things work, and then you can take on more serious academic work the second semester, or complete your work more efficiently.

If you possess dual citizenship with Germany and don't have time/don't wish to fulfill your military obligations to Germany during your study abroad experience, register as an American. This will save you from having to deal with the Army.

Personal recommendation
Simply put, Tuebingen has a great University. The Tufts program provided an ideal way of getting situated in the town and with classes. It is also a very well respected program that grants credit that most, if not all Universities will honor. I heartily recommend Tufts in Tuebingen.

I'm more of a city person, so I regretted not studying in Berlin or Munich. Still, there are ways to go out and have a good time, and the academics are frankly much better in Tuebingen than elsewhere. More than anything, my time in Germany gave me an opportunity to relax from the stresses of American institutions. I had a great time and very much miss the place now!!! I only wish I had had the time to study there for two semesters instead of one.

4.0/5
Overall
The department of econimcs & business administration is rather small in Tübingen, however i feel that the quality of the course is very high and that you have a wide variety and even take courses at other faculties. One of the best things is the variety of language courses offered in Tübingen, which are all for free and the opportunity two go abroad for one or two semesters. The university is super supportive and organized when it comes to the exchange program and has a lot of partener universities all around the world. The university itself is also very international, with around 10% of exchange students every semester.
