The individual professorships work closely with one another, with other partners from science and with local companies.

Support for founders

With TecUP, the department has been offering an organisational unit since 2014 that works across faculties for business start-ups at the University of Paderborn and thus acts as an interface between science and business. Through entrepreneurship teaching at the University of Paderborn and various event formats, both scientists and students are supported on their way to founding a company. TecUP stands for good networking and the exchange of startup founders and seasoned entrepreneurs in the region.

Other special features

Economic Sciences offers degree courses with unrivalled career prospects. Efficient study management provides for short study durations. The good relations between companies, research institutes and chairs of the University and the good technical and personnel resources provide excellent conditions for the study of economics. Paderborn is a campus university where everything is close together.
