Special features regarding teachingThe qualification goal lies in imparting Business Administration and Psychological skills and preparing them for professional activities in the areas of HRM, consulting and marketing / market research. In addition to classic teaching formats, innovative teaching formats (e.g. flipped classroom, workshops, video-based teaching, case studies) are offered. Learned content is deepened in project work and transfer is practised via applied practical projects. The practical relevance of the teaching content is provided by the practical experience of the professors and lecturers.
Special features regarding the international orientationIn addition to modules that explicitly relate to international topics (for example, in the "Intercultural Competencies" Bachelor's degree and "International Project Management" Master's degree), in all modules where this makes sense, attention is paid to the anchoring of international subjects. A semester abroad or an additional degree from a partner university can be integrated into the course of study. Intercultural experience can be gained directly abroad, through internships abroad, semesters abroad or through international short stays (including summer and winter schools).

Special features regarding the equipmentTo support teaching and research, access to several literature databases relevant to the degree program (e.g. Business Source Premier, PsychARTICLES, PsychINFO) has been set up, which in addition to research also provide access to current research work. There is also access to Statista.de, an online portal for survey statistics and the Marketline portal. Via the Business Psychology laboratory, teachers and students have access to moderation material, hardware (e.g. IT, Eye Tracker, Biophysiology), software (e.g. SPSS, UniPark) and a large test library.
Special features regarding research and developmentThe Business Psychology aspects of the department, for example on user behaviour in the areas of energy and construction, software and mobility, are well integrated into research activities across the university. Business Psychology is very successfully involved in several large interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research projects at the university (e.g. EnSign, i_City, 3%, Innovative University M4_Lab, Talent Intelligence, career parents). This can also be seen in interdisciplinary teaching projects with Information Technology, Engineering and Urban Planning courses.
Support for foundersCONTACT AS e.V. is a founding initiative of the universities of Stuttgart, Esslingen and Nürtingen, which advises and supports in questions of company formation and succession as well as career planning. In addition, there are cooperations in the course, for example with "Campus Concept", a student management consultancy in which many of our students are actively involved, and "Pioniergeist", a Stuttgart startup hub & company builder. In addition, we support graduates who want to start up as mentors for EXIST grants from the federal government.
Other special featuresThe development of business skills, research and methodological skills as well as transdisciplinary and intercultural skills are promoted. In many events, the ability to criticize is encouraged through prompt and intensive feedback on the work performed and the students are shown individual development areas. In addition, Wednesday afternoons are generally lecture-free and reserved for language courses that students can voluntarily take if they are interested. Free online language courses are also offered.
