The course aims to acquire basic knowledge from the fields of business administration, economics and the methodological foundations of mathematics, statistics, econometrics, business informatics and law as well as knowledge of the history and current development of these scientific disciplines. The students gain

  • a critical understanding of the most important theories, principles and methods of the subject,
  • the ability to take on tasks responsibly and to use scientific methods and findings to solve economic problems,
  • Ability to work in a team and qualifications that are in demand in relevant professional fields,
  • Competencies in a mixture of classroom teaching, virtual teaching and self-study individually and together with others,
  • the opportunity to participate independently in research and development projects at an early stage,
  • through the interdisciplinary acquisition of interdisciplinary references and key qualifications such as B. Language skills, intercultural skills or methodological skills.

What distinguishes the study of economics at the HU?

Since its re-establishment, the HU's Faculty of Business and Economics has developed a recognized scientific profile with great commitment in research and teaching, which is largely based on the application of quantitative methods and procedures to economic issues. The focus of the faculty's range of courses will therefore continue to be on learning and applying sophisticated quantitative economic methods. In view of the requirements of the labor market, this should be done by imparting the necessary specialist knowledge in a demanding, profile-oriented basic training in two first professional university degrees, Bachelor of Economics and Bachelor of Business Administration, which form the indispensable basis for economically correct and sustainable action in a variety of professional fields. You should therefore have an interest in and aptitude for quantitative areas such as statistics and mathematics. OneYou can find a self-test at hu.berlin/wiwi-test .
