The Bachelor of Business Studies and Economic is composed of seven areas:
1. Basics of business studies: accounting and accounts, marketing, company taxation, production & logistics and theory of the firm
2. Basics of economics: microeconomics, macroeconomics and economic and financial policy
3. Methods: mathematics, statistics and project management
4. In the fourth semester the focus of the program moves to Economic Evolution, Human Behavior and Policy. In addition to the specialized contents, key competencies such as teamwork and scientific working are imparted. Within the major ‘Economic Evolution, Human Behavior and Policy’ students have to decide between two sub modules: ‘Innovative Change and Human Behavior’ or ‘Institutional Development and Public Making’.
5. Compulsory-elective subjects: Econometrics, Operations Research, Scientific Research Methods in Economics or Dynamic Research Methods
6. General Studies: Basics of Economics, Law, Analysis of Economic Data and Sustainable Management
7. Bachelor Thesis combined with an accompanying seminar.
General studies provide the career-related proportion of the degree program, supplementing the technical component administered by the major. They comprise 25% of the degree, imparting study techniques and key qualifications necessary for a career outside the field of education. The purpose of the general studies courses is to help students develop the general competencies that are essential for professional orientation and qualification. These courses can be specialized courses (e.g. sustainable management and law) or methodological courses (e.g. analysis of economic data).
Business Studies (B.Sc.) and Economics (B.Sc.) share the same courses during the first three semesters. Therefore, a change of degree programs is possible until the fourth semester.
This program has a duration of six semesters, Bachelor’s Thesis included.
Within the complementary subject of Business Studies and Economics the following subjects are compulsory: Introduction of Business Studies, Indroduction of Economics, Economic Data Analysis, Marketing, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Accounting, economic and financial policy, Industrial Economics and Production/Logistics. No specialization is required for the complementary subject. Graduates of the complementary subject choose their General Studies courses in agreement with their major subject.
