study content

Within the scope of the degree programme, students deepen their knowledge of economics and apply it to economic policy problems. The methods courses macroeconomics, microeconomics and econometrics form the basis for this. By choosing seven modules in the Economics Major, students can set their own focus. Choosing a minor allows them to gain additional business knowledge, or to specialise further by choosing the General Management & Economics minor.
