Special features regarding research activitiesOur research is based on the tradition of the Freiburger Schule, with which we continue by providing solutions to current scientific questions. The two key areas of "Regulation, Market and the State" on the one hand, and "Public and Non-Profit Management" on the other complement each other perfectly, so that the natural development of the Faculty integrates the key areas of Economics and Business Administration and thus highlights the exceptional position of the Freiburg faculty as well as shaping it dynamically and progressively.

Support for foundersThe department’s teaching follows the requirements of the labour market. The subject-specific, methodological and multidisciplinary objectives are therefore related to the requirements of future professional areas within and outside of industry. Projects developed during courses of study or doctoral programmes may be supported through funds and programmes at the time of start-ups.
Characteristics of assistance to differently abled personsOne should mention here the various equalisation of disadvantages measures adapted to the individual situation of students and that all exam committees of the Faculty grant, teaching coordination, which enables people with disabilities to select courses that take place in facilities that are easy to access and whose times can be adjusted to daily schedules that may differ from time to time.
Characteristics of diversity advancementThe Faculty aims to increase the percentage of women steadily. In view of its ‘shrinkage levels’, the Faculty is committed to motivating and supporting women to pursue an academic career and/or remain at the university. Measures to promote gender equality and diversity include the addition of a representative to the equality team. This involves mainly the development of concepts together with the Equal Opportunities Office that promote the further qualification of women and allow for women university teachers with families to be recruited for Freiburg.
