Special features regarding teaching

The Bachelor's and Master's course in European Economic Studies (EES) is characterised by teaching with an international focus, which can be completed largely in English, depending on the courses selected by students. A balanced combination of lectures, seminars and language training is ensured. The high level of freedom in choosing courses and the integration of a broad range of courses from neighbouring disciplines (including Business Administration, Politics, Sociology, Business Informatics) allows students to give their studies an individual focus with regard to a subsequent Master's degree or professional life.

Special features regarding the international orientation

Compulsory year abroad in the Bachelor programme, voluntary semester abroad for the Master EES. High percentage of classes not taught in German. Two foreign business languages (Bachelor) and/or one or two (Master): Business English, Spanish, Italian, French and Russian. Research cooperation with universities in Spain, Italy, USA, Finland and the Netherlands. Currently four double degree agreements in the Bachelor EES, one double degree agreement in the Master EES.
