Applicants must have a primary, professionally qualifying degree (minimum requirement: Bachelor) in an economics degree programme and must pass an examination to determine suitability. The Examinations Board may waive the suitability examination requirement for applicants who can demonstrate above average academic performance. However, the test results may prompt the Examination Board to require applicants to take certain Bachelor modules in business administration to make up for certain deficits. However, these modules will not yield credits for the Master programme.
Study Programme Objectives
The two-year Master programme features a research-oriented profile. Students are purposefully trained to acquire practical expertise and to meet the challenges of a most diverse and rapidly-evolving job market; they engage in practical research activities and learn social responsibility. Students acquire the ability to understand abstract and integrative processes, to master complex situations on the basis of scientific and team-oriented working methods, as well as to independently make decisions and form opinions. Moreover, the programme aims to encourage students to conduct their own independent research endeavours, thereby putting their acquired knowledge of methodologies and systems to practical use, in addition to understanding various scientific points of view. Students learn how to tackle novel and complex problems and how to solve them on the basis of scientific methods, as well as to understand that there are limits to what we can know.
