Management and Economics - Bachelor of Science (BSc)

How do you assess the economic appeal of a business idea? What accounting standards are balances based on? Which management competences characterise a successful enterprise? Which macroeconomic changes do businesses need to consider in future? How do people behave in decision-making scenarios? This is just a small excerpt from the spectrum of questions in that Management and Economics looks at. Advancing globalisation and increasing use of information and communication technologies as well as rapidly progressing technological developments cause an growing demand of qualified specialists with high economical competences.

More about the course

The Management and Economics bachelor’s programme at Ulm University is mainly quantitatively oriented.
The pathway provides a well-founded education on the basis of complementary learning units in the core subjects Business Management/Administration and Macroeconomics as well as the neighbouring disciplines Mathematics, Informatics, Business Law and languages. A complementary offer are the transferable skills courses like language courses, philosophy and ethics seminars or rhetoric courses. From the fourth semester on, students can emphasise certain areas of interest by choosing a specialisation.
The following specialisation subjects are currently available:

  • Economics
  • Finance and Insurance Industry
  • Accounting and Auditing
  • Technology and Process Management
  • Management and Controlling
  • Informatics

In addition to knowledge of facts and decision-making rules, which are needed to solve economical questions, another important goal of the study concept in Ulm is to teach the skill of 'economic thinking', i.e. to analyse decision-making scenarios, consider possible solutions and derive recommendations.
