  • Special features regarding teaching
    Our course is characterised by 3 special features. First, we offer great flexibility. Students do not have to commit to a technical specialisation. Instead, they can set individual priorities with regard to technical and economic content. Second, our range of courses has a very high proportion of IT. This optimally prepares students for digitisation. Third, the course is clearly assigned to the faculty. Our range of courses including Business and IT is therefore tailored directly to industrial engineers.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Apart from the university's central service facilities to promote course-based stays abroad, the KIT department of Economics also has its own International Relations Office, which coordinates the international collaborations of KIT and serves as a first contact point for subject-based advice for KIT students and international exchange students. It is here that Industrial Engineering students receive specific support and assistance in the planning and implementation of their stays abroad.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Queensland University of Technology, Australien; University of Adelaide, Australien; Vanderbilt University: Owen Graduate School of Management, USA; Beijing Institute of Technology, China; Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan (KTH), Schweden; Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finnland; University of Southern Denmark, Dänemark; École Polytechnique Palaiseau, Frankreich; Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, Spanien; Universidade de Lisboa (Instituto Superior Técnico), Portugal.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Entire campus with WiFi; 24-hour pool rooms with 75 workstations, special laboratory with 40 individual cabins, another 400 PC workstations; all seminar rooms are digitally equipped; 50 loan notebooks for students; libraries, some with 24-hour access, with approx. 1500 WIFI learning spaces, of which approx. 300 for Wiwi / Info; partly lecture recordings and live translations; hundreds of international databases available; high-priced products such as Ansys, Autodesk, MatLab, Mathematica, Maple, SAS or SPSS free of charge for students; High / highest performance computer for project work.
  • Special features regarding research activities
    We are one of the leading technology-oriented economics faculties. Anchored in Business Administration (e.g. Finance, Management, Marketing and Operations) and Economics (e.g. Microeconomics and Econometrics), we focus on issues related to new developments in computer science, engineering and mathematics. Topics include digital transformation and economic aspects of the energy transition. In research, we use the "Karlsruhe Decision & Design Lab", one of the world's largest computer-based experimental laboratories.
  • Support for founders
    The Institute of Entrepreneurship, Technology Management and Innovation provides support, in identifying of potential for start-ups, for their strategic planning and efficient realisation as well as for ensuring the sustainability of organisations, the identification, development and utilisation of core skills in a changing environment with the focus on capacity for innovation and competitiveness of the players in the innovation system. The "KIT incubator for start-ups" initiative informs and supports students with respect to establishing a business
  • Other special features
    The KIT places great value on the exchange between the different disciplines. The so-called KIT centres serve this purpose. The Faculty of Business and Economics is in constant collaboration with technical and scientific subjects, especially in the centres "Energy", "Mobility Systems", "People and Technology" and "Mathematics in the Natural, Engineering and Economic Sciences". In addition, the Faculty of Economics is actively seeking contact with companies, for example from the IT, energy and automotive industries, with the help of a newly founded group of partners.
