Objectives

The course combines in-depth instruction in academic methods with hands-on experience of management challenges in the workplace, making graduates ideally placed to become key decision-makers in responsible positions. Nowadays international experience is an indispensable prerequisite for a career in management, and graduates with work experience abroad or a dual-degree qualification are ideally suited to today's global management environment. In recognition of this fact, teaching and learning on the degree has a clear international orientation, supported by the University's network of partner universities worldwide. Creativity and the ability to think, reason and express oneself in a logical, analytical manner are important criteria in the selection of employees. Modern learning and teaching methods and a wide range of additional lectures and seminars enable students to acquire key qualifications and to develop leadership qualities.

 

Programme Structure

The course is divided into a two-semester First-Stage programme and a five-semester Second-Stage programme, which includes a placement in semester five. Thanks to the University's close links with local companies, a large number of placements are available. Near the end of the course students write an undergraduate dissertation. A Masters degree, Unternehmensführung / Business Management, builds on and expands the knowledge and skills gained during the Bachelor programme. After completing the First-Stage programme students can spend a semester at a partner university abroad, e.g. in Great Britain, Ireland, the USA, Australia, Korea, Sweden, Lithuania or Poland. It is also possible to attain a Dual Degree. Students will be helped to choose a suitable study programme abroad. Many modules in the Second-Stage programme are delivered in English.
