Programme Structure and Organisation

The Bachelor's Programme in Management, Economics and Social Sciences consists of 180 ECTS and has a standard study period of six semesters. The programme consists of the following components:

The Core and Advanced Section (108 CPs) consists of core and advanced modules in management, economics, sociology, psychology, political science and methods as well as modules addressing sustainable change. All modules in this section are compulsory.

The Supplementary Section (18 CPs) consists of three compulsory “Studies Abroad” modules

The Specialisation Section (30 CPs) is composed of:

  • Two focus modules (12 CPs): students choose from a range of business administration, economics and social science courses.

  • The compulsory Leadership and Interpersonal Skills module (6 CPs)

The section „Studium Integrale“(12 CPs) is a university-wide and interdisciplinary part of the program that allows students to take courses in both science and career-related skills. Students usually complete this part of the programme within their studies abroad during the fifth semester.

Finally, the mandatory bachelor thesis (12 CPs) represents the last section.
