Course of Studies

The bachelor's program is designed for six semesters and divided into 19 modules.

Basic Studies (Modules 1-7)

The first eleven modules belong to the basics phase of the study program. In this, typical foundational courses of a business studies program are taught. These include, for example, courses in the areas of accounting and finance, management, marketing, planning and economic theory. They are supplemented by courses on methodological fundamentals and related areas such as business law and computer science. Key skills, such as presentation techniques and time management, are also part of this phase of studies. As part of the program's international orientation, proof or development of English language skills is also a mandatory component.

In the first three semesters, students take courses for a total of 30 credits and 16 weekly hours per semester. In the fourth semester, the final modules can then be completed for a total of 8 weekly hours per semester and 15 credits, together with further courses from the chosen specialization (study field or competence profile).

Specialization (Modules 8 - 12)

In the second part of the program, students can then choose between a study field or a competence profile. This allows for tailoring the study program to students' individual interests and strengths.

Study Field

Students can focus their studies on business administration, economics, or a mixture of both. They can then primarily choose courses from that field of study. These are supplemented by courses on academic writing and methodology, seminars and project seminars as well as civil law, followed by the bachelor thesis. A detailed course plan for the three study fields can be found in the module handbook.

Competence Profiles

Students can choose from six competency profiles. These include:

Within the competence profile, students may choose five profile modules, one of which must be from business administration and one from economics. Seminars and the bachelor thesis will also be firmly anchored within the profile. Civil law and business English are part of all profiles. An overview of which professorships belong to which competence profile can be found at the end of the module handbook.
