Business Administration and Economics at TU Dortmund University

There are many great reasons for studying Business Administration and Economics at TU Dortmund University. Here, we would like to introduce you to some of the ones we believe to be most important.

We are also particularly pleased with the current results in the CHE University Ranking 2023/2024, in which our bachelor's program scored in the top range in several categories. The results for our Master's program will appear in fall 2023.

Studying With Individual Profiles

In our bachelor, you begin by learning the basics of business administration and economics. After that, you can choose from six competence profiles and so align your studies based on your own interests and strengths. In total, there are about 60 courses offered.

In the master's degree, you can select one of five study profiles. In doing so, students can focus primarily on one profile or opt for the broadest possible study program and make greater use of courses from other profiles. In total, there are almost 100 courses to choose from. In addition, you can also take courses at the Faculty of Management and Economics at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum in the master's degree through the optional module UA Ruhr.
