The Bachelor of Business Administration and Economics program is aimed at people who enjoy and are interested in learning about business inter-relationships and the overarching issues of modern economics. The department expects a high degree of motivation and commitment from its students. As well as this, students are expected to invest in themselves (language courses, internships, relevant work experiences and student jobs, semesters abroad, career preparations) and in others (student council, tutoring) during their studies. They should seek to actively participate in and contribute to the department, for example by evaluating courses, committee work, attending guest lectures, and participating in workshops or other additional events.
Students can start their bachelor's degree program in the winter semester. The program is subject to local admission restrictions. Applications for the first semester must be submitted by July 15 of each year. The Department of Business Administration and Economics supports new students by offering a pre-course in mathematics a few weeks before the beginning of lectures. This is followed by the one-week orientation phase for first-year students. Accompanied by students from higher semesters, new students can get to know the university and its facilities during this time. They can also make first contacts with fellow students and future lecturers.
The Bachelor's program is designed for six semesters and is divided into a basic and a specialization. In the following, only a general overview will be given. More detailed information can be found on the Bachelor of Business Administration program page.
The basic part of the program covers courses that are typically part of a business administration and economics degree program. These are complemented by related subjects such as IT courses, basics of econometrics or civil law.
Furthermore, key competencies in the areas of presentation techniques, self and time management as well as knowledge transfer are trained. To meet the requirements for an internationally recognized degree, proof of English language skills is also a mandatory component.
In the later part of the study program, students can select a specialization to develop their career profile. They can chose to specialize in business administration, economcis or a mixture of business administration and economics.
Within the different specializations, 20 different specialization subjects (modules 8a to 8d) and subjects for complement II (module 10) are offered.
