Special features

Semesters abroad are recommended.


Economics is the science of examining and solving economic problems systematically and on a sound methodological basis. While business administration focuses on the individual company, economics is about understanding the interaction of individuals and companies, explaining macroeconomic processes and analyzing the scope for economic policy action.

Professional prospects / competencies

With an analytically well-grounded education as an economist, students are qualified for entering many economic professions in the private and public sectors. Economists work for companies, associations, economic research institutes, ministries and public authorities, universities, in economic journalism or in international organizations.

Internships, lab courses, practical courses

We recommend all students develop specializations aiding their future careers by arranging suitable internships.
