Further information provided by the department

  • Special features regarding teaching
    Our business administration courses combine a general and specific compulsory programme with a large number of individual elective options. Specific contents – international and SMEs – can be explored more thoroughly on the basis of sound business methods. The further the study progresses, the more options students have to choose their own specialisations. At the same time, number of practical projects increases through the course of the studies. This ensures the acquisition of skills in a timely and practical manner as well as the establishment of contacts to companies.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Our faculty has many international contacts at organisational and personnel levels. All study programmes benefit particularly from the experience with the Bachelor's in International Business Administration and Master's in International Marketing & Sales thanks to their emphasis on English-language courses that attract many international students, especially from many of the partner universities. These partnerships thrive on the continuous exchange, particularly by way of visits and guest lectures. There are also joint (research) projects with international companies.
  • Common partner universities for exchange
    California State University in Fullerton, USA; University of Maine, USA; East Stroudsburg University, USA; University of Abertay Dundee, England; ESC Clermont-Ferrand, France; Universidad de Belgrano, Argentina; Universidad de Vigo, Spain; Central University of Technology Bloemfontein, South Africa; Mikkeli University of Applied Sciences, Finland; Saratov State Socio-Economic University, Russia
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    The Economic Sciences department provides different courses with various requirements. This creates a wide range of possibilities in terms of technical equipment and subject-specific databases. As concerns technical equipment, we also benefit from the possibilities of the technical departments, particularly Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering. Our technical equipment meets modern requirements and our databases up-to-date, well maintained and comprehensive. Open study and project spaces complement modern computer pools.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    Our faculty is part of the most research-intensive university in Baden-Württemberg, and we follow international research standards consistently. We have a high level of competence in quantitative and qualitative empirical research methods, and our laboratories on Industry 4.0 and Eye-Tracking (in development) are state of the art. But digital transformation is not only about technical questions, but also represents new challenges with respect to business processes and corporate governance. The latter is dealt with by the newly established Department of Values-Based Corporate Management. 6 cooperative doctorates in the period 2013-2015.
  • Research topics reflected in teaching
    The department's contents are broad-based and promote inter-disciplinary collaboration. This is reflected in the research topics incorporated into the courses. Currently, the focus is on corporate governance with respect to international SMEs and family enterprises. Plus, controller roles and effects of new regulations on lease accounting. New business models play increasing roles in the digital age, as do issues related to data management (big data) and data security, against the background of the transformation to Industry 4.0.
  • Website with further information on research activities
  • Support for founders
    To promote entrepreneurial spirit, the Aalen University has implemented its own programme (GuStL). At the department, all students benefit from the experience of the Business Administration course for small and medium-sized enterprises and the Master's in Management of small and medium-sized enterprises in the field of entrepreneurship. In practical terms, we promote start-ups together with the technical departments of the university and have developed the joint Master's in Business Development especially for entrepreneurial students. Together with our innovation centre, we offer space, equipment and advice to student start-ups.
  • Characteristics of assistance to differently abled persons
    Enabling all students to experience genuine university life, within and outside the university, matters to us. In addition to the legal framework, such as accommodation with respect to exams, we provide individual support to students with permanent health problems through a university officer. This is accomplished in daily life through the great commitment and high level of social skills of our students and staff. We actively encourage this through constant work in small groups and thus ensure actual team building in our programmes.
  • Characteristics of diversity advancement
    As the only non-technical department at the Aalen University, we have contributed a new element to the university since its establishment. We are also strategically ready for specific groups. Students of International Business Administration in Business Administration for SMEs, Health Management and Industrial Engineering are highly diverse, yet form a strong unit. We are regional, not provincial, and open to new things. In research and teaching particularly to the people who come to us.
  • Other special features
    We have our own selection process for our courses. As a department, we aim to set deliberate standards in the selection of applicants. Our focus is on (future) students. This is why we invest in student support and make time for students. This is borne out by a large number of tutorials, exercises and small group sizes.
