DESCRIPTION OF SUBJECT

The Bachelor’s Degree of Business Studies and Economics (WiWi) at the Faculty of Business Studies and Economics has a duration of six semesters and concludes with the degree 'Bachelor of Science' (B. Sc.).

The first half of this degree program encompasses the basic principles of business administration and economics, while the second half is aligned to the consolidation of specialist knowledge within the Economics major ‘Economic Evolution, Human Behavior and Policy’.

The Faculty of Business and Economics also offers Business Studies and Economics as a complementary subject ( ‘Komplementärfach WiWi’). It is studied in combination with a 'Profilfach' (profile subject) within the Two-Subject Bachelor's degree.

The image film at https://www.uni-bremen.de/de/wiwi/ provides a first impression of the faculty and its degree programs.

OCCUPATIONAL FIELDS AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Subsequent non-teaching occupational fields

Graduates of the Bachelor Program Business Studies and Economics can work in the middle management of private industry, economic consulting and in public administration.
Depending on the major subject the student chooses, occupational fields will be within industry, public administration and non-profit organizations or within the academic system in Germany and abroad.

The field of activity of graduates of the 'Komplementärfach' Economics depends on their choice of their 'Profilfach'. However, students of the complementary subject have the possibility to work in the private sector, administration or non-governmental organizations.

The faculty maintains close contacts with companies and offers students several chances to get in touch with them: for example at the faculty careers day, a trade fair taking place at the university in the faculty’s rooms.

Teacher training (Lehramt)

No courses available for students training to be teachers at state-run schools

Possibilities for additional qualifications

Graduates qualify for admittance to a Master’s Program in the disciplines:

Business Studies Master of Science

Professional Public Decision Making Master

Business Psychology Master

Subject combinations non-school career fields

In principle, first-year students are able to study any combination of main or subsidiary subjects offered by the University of Bremen.

Stages of study / curricula / description of modules

The Bachelor of Business Studies and Economic is composed of seven areas:
1. Basics of business studies: accounting and accounts, marketing, company taxation, production & logistics and theory of the firm
2. Basics of economics: microeconomics, macroeconomics and economic and financial policy
3. Methods: mathematics, statistics and project management
4. In the fourth semester the focus of the program moves to Economic Evolution, Human Behavior and Policy. In addition to the specialized contents, key competencies such as teamwork and scientific working are imparted. Within the major ‘Economic Evolution, Human Behavior and Policy’ students have to decide between two sub modules: ‘Innovative Change and Human Behavior’ or ‘Institutional Development and Public Making’.
5. Compulsory-elective subjects: Econometrics, Operations Research, Scientific Research Methods in Economics or Dynamic Research Methods
6. General Studies: Basics of Economics, Law, Analysis of Economic Data and Sustainable Management
7. Bachelor Thesis combined with an accompanying seminar.

General Studies
General studies provide the career-related proportion of the degree program, supplementing the technical component administered by the major. They comprise 25% of the degree, imparting study techniques and key qualifications necessary for a career outside the field of education. The purpose of the general studies courses is to help students develop the general competencies that are essential for professional orientation and qualification. These courses can be specialized courses (e.g. sustainable management and law) or methodological courses (e.g. analysis of economic data).

Business Studies (B.Sc.) and Economics (B.Sc.) share the same courses during the first three semesters. Therefore, a change of degree programs is possible until the fourth semester.

This program has a duration of six semesters, Bachelor’s Thesis included.

Within the complementary subject  of Business Studies and Economics the following subjects are compulsory: Introduction of Business Studies, Indroduction of Economics, Economic Data Analysis, Marketing, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Accounting, economic and financial policy, Industrial Economics and Production/Logistics. No specialization is required for the complementary subject. Graduates of the complementary subject choose their General Studies courses in agreement with their major subject.

Course schedule

Compulsory, elective and optional

All courses during the first three semesters are compulsory courses. Compulsory-elective courses are offered during the second half of the study program.

General Studies include compulsory and elective subjects.

Within the complementary subject of Business Studies and Economics all subjects are compulsory.

Typical course types

Within the first three semesters of the Bachelor’s Degree of Business Studies the students’ attendance at the university is required much more than in the later semesters. In addition to lectures, many courses also offer tutorials. Through this combination of course types the entry into university for first year students is eased and the transition from the school system into university studies is facilitated by the faculty, particularly by the professors and research assistants thereof. In the second half of the program, the focus is on seminars and the project module, within which scientific and independent working are the focal points. The final examination is the bachelor’s thesis which is optionally accompanied by an additional seminar.

Digital learning contents

  • E-Learning
  • Blended Learning

Major fields

Available major for the sole subject:
‘Economic Evolution, Human Behavior and Policy’ with the sub modules of ‘Innovative Change and Human Behavior’ and ‘Institutional Development and Public Making’

No specializsation is required for the complementary subject.

General studies

General Studies account for 10 - 25% of the study programme. These courses train key competences for subsequent career fields. By building their own individual specialities, students are able to shape and amplify their academic profile.

Practical

We recommend that students complete an internship within the duration of their studies. An internship can be recognized as a course from the general studies area of the Business Studies bachelor’s program. In order to be awarded credit points for the internship it must be at least five weeks long and may not be started before the end of the second semester. Students can gain support in searching for an internship position from the Career Centre at the university or from the faculty’s Office for Practical Experience and International Affairs. (Further information: https://www.uni-bremen.de/en/wiwi/practice-and-transfer/practical-experience-at-the-faculty/).

If an internship report is submitted, 6 ECTS will be acknowledged within General Studies.

The faculty maintains close contacts with companies and offers students several chances to get in touch with them: for example at the faculty careers day, a trade fair taking place at the university in the faculty’s rooms.

Study abroad

Although a semester abroad is not compulsory, it is recommended. In the course of the advised course and study structure of the program, a semester abroad would be best planned for the fourth or fifth semester of studies.

As a result of the elective range within the major, there is a high flexibility in regard to the courses that can be recognized and therefore a semester abroad can be considered without having to extend the duration of studies. Support in organizing a semester abroad is offered by the faculty’s Office for Practical Experience and International Affairs. Further information can be found on the homepage of the faculty under the category of 'International' (https://www.uni-bremen.de/en/wiwi/international-affairs/incoming-guest-study-in-bremen/).

As part of the application process for a place at a foreign university, the required foreign language abilities will be verified. When participating in the Sokrates/Erasmus Program students are asked to demonstrate a level of B2 in the respective language of instruction at the host university.

Extensive advisory services in this area are offered by the faculty’s Office for Practical Experience and International Affairs.

Exams forms

Examinations and Examination Forms

 

All examinations in the Business Studies and Economics bachelor’s program are course-related. One of the examination forms is the classic written examination whose duration differs depending on the respective course. This form of examination is mainly offered during the earlier semesters due to the large size of the cohorts. In some courses, electronic examinations are carried out which take place in the Testcentre at the University of Bremen. Oral examinations, presentations, assignments and projects are offered primarily in the higher semesters. In many courses so called ‘Portfolios’ are admitted. These forms allow for several small examinations during the lecture period to be considered in the final grade.
If a course generally allows different examination forms, students are informed by their lecturer at the beginning of the course which examination form is carried out in that semester. The written and oral examinations take place within the three weeks following the lecture period. All the resit examinations are generally held at the beginning of the following semester.

 

 

Particularities

The faculty sets high quality standards to the contents and organization of teaching. This includes, among others:

- Extensive consulting services offered by the Study Center and the Office for Practice and International Affairs.

- Evaluation of teaching through online lecture evaluations, focus rounds with students, intensive discussions with the StugA (student council) and the "Dies Academicus".

- Quality management, in which students are intensively involved.

In the summer, the faculty will be offering a Summer School "Business Studies and Economics" for undergraduate students. The Summer School will take place from June to July. All courses are held in English. In the Summer School, foreign guest lecturers are involved and international guest students learn together with Bremen students.

The Summer School is part of our Summer Lab program, which was first held in 2018. The Summer Lab is part of a collaborative program with Coventry University (UK) and the State University of New York (USA) with students from Binghamton University and Stony Brook University. It is an exclusive program that is not open to other guest students.

This programs contains three building blocks and takes place annually from June to August:

  1. Summer School "Business Studies and Economics": 6 weeks, beginning of June
  2. Language Summer School of the Language Center (FZHB): 4 weeks after the end of the lecture period of the summer semester
  3. Summer Camp: 3 weeks in August

The Summer Lab is an internationally unique offer that gives students, up to three months, the opportunity to experience everyday life in Germany. In the summer school, students work together with Bremen students. You will get to know the German culture and language in the Language Summer School, which takes into account your individual language level. They also gain hands-on experience at the Summer Camp, where they also work with local students to carry out projects for local companies. Further information about the Summer Lab can be found here.
