In the first semester you will deepen and expand on important business management topics. This includes the International Financial Reporting module, which focuses on international accounting and is held in English. The module Managerial Economics deals with economic explanatory approaches to practical management challenges in a social and political context. The module Research Methods for Business Studies offers an in-depth treatment of the quantitative and qualitative research methods required for business studies.

Supply Chain Management explains how supply chains can be designed, planned, controlled and monitored across companies.

As part of an internship, you will independently work on a specific operational problem from one of the three focal points to be selected in the Company Project. Specialist concepts and instruments for the development of an implementable solution approach are to be applied.

 

In the third semester, a complex business simulation workshop is planned, which is of great importance for teaching an integrative way of thinking and uses English as the business language.
