Basic skills

The course is designed to build on each other. The skills taught in one semester are a prerequisite for acquiring the skills in the following semester. For this reason, students should follow the module sequence suggested in the course plan.

In the first four semesters, students acquire basic methodological knowledge in the following disciplines:

  • Banking management
  • Business administration and economics
  • Commercial and banking law
  • Quantitative methods
  • Business Informatics.

To do this, you apply the theoretical knowledge you have learned to practical examples (transfer competence). In addition, the students receive a special teaching unit on scientific work and are repeatedly supervised by scientific staff and tutors for scientific work when preparing presentations and term papers. You can research, read and understand the necessary scientific literature as well as scientifically present and quote. Afterwards, they are able to present their work results in front of an audience. In addition, they can reflect on themselves, but also evaluate the performance of others. The students therefore have:

  • methodical basic knowledge of the respective specialist discipline
  • the ability to create a formally correct scientific work and presentation
  • Self, social and reflective skills
  • Presentation and discussion skills
  • Communication skills

In the fourth and sixth semesters, students have the opportunity, in addition to expanding their basic methodological knowledge, to choose modules from an elective according to their inclinations and interests. This compulsory optional offer is variable and adapts to developments on the capital and financial markets. This elective currently includes modules such as:

  • Capital market
  • Bank marketing and financial market communication
  • International Money, Banking and Finance
  • Financial econometrics
  • Company analysis and evaluation
  • Real estate financing
  • Export Finance & Distressed Investment
  • Investment strategies and financial controlling
  • Asset management II

Further competencies, such as presentation skills or the ability to work scientifically, are expanded and developed.
In particular, in-depth knowledge of quantitative methods is essential in the financial sector. In the fourth and fifth semesters, the specialist skills are supplemented in further compulsory modules:

  • Quantitative risk management for banks
  • Qualitative risk management for banks
  • Credit management
  • External accounting for banks
  • Asset management I
  • Corporate management I: organization and planning

Thesis

The thesis is written in the sixth semester. With the final thesis, the competence for scientific work is finally checked.

Practical, technically detailed and interdisciplinary: there are many current topics for theses. Students apply specialist skills, use the soft skills they have learned and preferably apply their skills to a practical example.
