Further degree programmes


With the 2-subject Bachelor of Science in Management, the faculty pursues an application-oriented approach in research and teaching and teaches students to think in comprehensive economic contexts and to take these into account when making decisions. The focus here is on aspects of value-oriented corporate management, the sales orientation of business models and the founding of companies, among others. In terms of content, students benefit in particular from the expertise of the FACCT and SMD fields of competence, which are designed for business administration, as well as the CEIT, which is located at the interface between business administration and economics. The programme is based on the current state of international research and also includes interdisciplinary skills for conducting and presenting scientific analyses and personal development. A wide range of practical contacts and a high level of practical relevance in teaching provide optimal preparation for a quick career start. 

You study management (BWL) in combination with another subject.

The Bachelor’s degree programme in Economics, specialisation BWL, deals with questions such as …

  • What products should companies produce and at what price should they sell them?
  • How do you organise the cooperation of thousands of employees in large companies?
  • What data do managers need to be able to quickly identify and solve problems?
  • If a company wants to build a new factory, where should the money come from? Selling shares on the stock exchange, bank loan, or…?
  • How can companies protect their products against product piracy?

This degree programme is unique because it allows for diverse combinations of management with other subjects.
