Special features regarding teaching

In teaching, quantitative approaches are predominantly, though not exclusively, used. This results from the knowledge that complex, interdependent economic facts can often be described and communicated more precisely using mathematical methods. In the Bachelor and Master Economics, the three contents of Business Administration, Economics and Methodology are pursued almost equally. With the two English-language Master's programmes in Quantitative Economics and Data Science and the Master in Statistical Sciences, a further quantitative specialisation is set in the course.

Special features regarding the international orientation

There are numerous international collaborations with various European universities. Credits earned at a university abroad can be recognised and easily integrated into the Bachelor or Master courses by selecting special modules. The Master's degree in Economics includes the International Management and Economics profile, which was specially designed for stays abroad. In the Master Quantitative Economics, the Master's thesis can be supervised by an examiner from a partner university abroad (International Track profile).

Support for founders

The junior professorship for start-up management / gender in the start-up process, which has existed since WS 17/18, deals with this topic in research and teaching and offers the start-up management module, which can be attended as part of the so-called individual supplementation of Bachelor and Master students from all faculties. Here the listeners acquire basic technical and methodological skills for start-up management. You will get an overview of central requirements in the start-up process as well as possible "tools" or alternative approaches and an insight into start-up practice.
