Management and Economics

Content and Structure

Scope and duration

The course is designed for a total of 180 ECTS-AP and 3 years of regular study.

The abbreviation 'ECTS-AP' stands for European Credit Transfer credits. An ECTS-AP corresponds to a study performance of 25 hours (attendance in the courses, preparation and follow-up as well as examination preparation). As a rule, 30 ECTS-APs are completed per semester.


The programme is offered in German. However, students can also choose individual English-language courses.


Our studies are organized in modules. In the initial phase, most modules consist of a lecture, which all students attend at the same time, and a proseminar, which is offered in parallel in small groups. In the further course of studies (SBWL, SVWL, electives) modules are generally held in small groups.

Course of studies

You can start your studies in the winter or summer semester. As a general rule, in the first semester you should complete the introductory and orientation phase (STEOP) with the modules "Introduction to Business Administration" and "Introduction to Economics". In addition, students normally attend the subject "Mathematics" and either the "Business Foreign Language" or "Law for Economics" in the first semester. This first semester forms the foundation for the further courses.

The following chart shows an overview of the modules completed during the course of study:
