Support for foundersOne of the university's founding officers teaches Business Administration. Several events are offered on the subject of Entrepreneurship (compulsory and elective subject). Mandatory courses on innovation management are an integral part of several study programs. Lectures on setting up a business include creating business plans. Several business simulation games are integrated into the study program, and participation in student organisations with practical relevance (business talks and IB consulting as student management consultancy) is supported.
Other special featuresApplicants will have a student buddy at their side for individual questions from the start. This reflects the philosophy of the business faculty: you study with us as an individual person and not as a "mere student ID number". The courses are characterised by a wide range of options (languages and specialisations), so that you can largely tailor the course to your interests. In numerous electives you study together with your fellow students from the other Bachelor courses.
