Economic Sciences

This section contains information about economics. These consist in the narrower sense of the two classical disciplines of economics (economics) and business administration (BWL). In addition, there are degree programs in areas such as economics / economics and business education.

Economics courses can be combined as interdisciplinary courses with other disciplines, e.g. with engineering, mathematics, computer science, law, social sciences and linguistic and cultural studies. Examples of this are industrial engineering, business information technology and business law.

The changes in political and economic conditions, e.g. the globalization and internationalization of the markets, growing capital exports, relocation and outsourcing of operating units, etc. have led to more European and international degree programs and integrated exchange programs.

Economics students should have a good general education, a good knowledge of mathematics and modern foreign languages and an interest in economic, social, political and historical issues. In addition, they should be able to think analytically and be methodical, be socially competent and able to work in a team, and work independently and theoretically.

With a bachelor's degree in economics, a career entry is usually in middle management, while generally a master's degree is required for senior management positions and senior management roles.
