B.Sc. Business Administration

Sustainable products and services, big data, the reform of corporate governance – social challenges such as changing values, digitalisation and reflections on the financial and economic crisis demonstrate the necessity for a rethink in the economy. The Bachelor in Business Administration addresses this issue and makes a valuable contribution to the implementation of a responsible business administration. On the Major in Business Administration, you learn how analytical, accounting and management-oriented core disciplines can be combined on a socially responsible and sustainable basis to the equal benefit of businesses and society. At the same time, you will also gain business administration and behavioural-related practical expertise, preparing you to play a leading role in the fields of finance and accounting, marketing or human resources management.

The Business Administrationmajor is offered in the German language and is thus directed at prospective students with a good command of German.
