Impact: Understanding global economics

A good product alone does not make a company successful. Economic matters are a part of it: Current market conditions? Optimal production? Financing options, financial investments and re-investments? Deployment of marketing activities and distribution strategies? And effective personnel management?
The study program conveys the necessary expertise in a cross-industry, 360-degree management training that teaches students to assess the market, take regulatory framework conditions into account in the analysis and derive successful strategies: This is how we understand interconnected thinking and acting.

Special feature: Three semesters abroad

Two foreign languages and two mandatory semesters abroad at one of over 210 partner universities are a fixed part of the study program. Students can decide whether they want to complete the internship abroad or in a globally operating company. Excellent career opportunities often already result during the studies due to the close cooperation with regional partner companies. Graduates are sought-after in all areas of the economy based on the students’ international and broadly structured knowledge in management, marketing and financing.
