Special features regarding teachingThe Faculty of Business and Economics is characterised by very good basic training and numerous specialisation options. It also attaches particular importance to international standards in teaching as well as to ongoing dialogue with the students. The teaching of ethical principles is an integral part of all courses. During training, both close contact with operational and economic policy practice is important. Our graduates enjoy an excellent reputation with employers.
Special features regarding the international orientationInternationalisation is a high priority at the Faculty of Economics. The faculty has a broad network of very good partner universities, which enable students to spend various types of time abroad - from semesters abroad (with full credit for exam performance) to double degrees. In addition, the faculty attaches great importance to teaching in English, meaning that all programmes have a high proportion of English-language courses. Some programmes can be studied entirely in English.

These can be used by students and staff in research and teaching. The statistical packages Stata, EViews and R are available for quantitative analyses at the workstations as well as in the four computer pools. The faculty is also a university-wide pioneer in the use of e-learning and electronic exams.

Support for foundersThe department has successfully acquired the Excellence Start-up Centre.NRW at the WWU (ESC). The ESC is the central platform for the founding of excellent knowledge and technology-based companies within the EUREGIO ecosystem. It is intended to implement sustainable, science-based business models for a better life and offers entrepreneurship teaching, scouting and coaching / mentoring. It is also a meeting point for various activities of the department and the WWU (ERCIS Launchpad, Venture Club, Enactus, etc.)
Other special featuresThe Faculty of Business and Economics is one of only 11 faculties in Germany to be awarded the international AACSB accreditation - one of the world's most important accreditations for business schools, which has so far been awarded to only about 5% of all business schools worldwide. It shows that our faculty stands for quality-oriented and international teaching and research. The accreditation also stands for a voluntary commitment to quality and constant development.
