  • Special features regarding teaching
    The Economics programme is characterised by its strong practical orientation (practical semester and practical projects) as well as individual support for students. The elective subjects (Quantitative Methods, International Economics, Financial Markets, Industrial and Behavioural Economics, Game Theory, in depth Business Administration) differ from the mainstream economics. Sustainability issues, research-based learning and courses to enhance overarching skills of students are integrated into the programme.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    It is possible to obtain a degree in International Economics. To do so, students must complete at least 50% of their credits in a language other than German. In addition, they must complete a semester abroad at one of our over 30 partner universities around the world. The programme offers for the international degree an "English track" of various modules, in addition to the courses taught in German. In the course of the programme, students can choose freely whether to go in for the traditional German degree or the international degree.
