Introductory phase (STEOP)

The introductory orientation phase grants students an overview of the key elements of the degree programme and of the course of studies ahead. Thus, it provides a factual basis for the personal evaluation of the choice of degree programme. As students must successfully complete the introductory orientation phase in order to continue their studies, it is recommended that the introductory orientation phase should be scheduled during the first semester. The introductory orientation phase accounts for 10 ECTS credits and includes the courses "Einführung in die Betriebswirtschaftslehre" and "Einführung in die Volkswirtschaftslehre", and "Grundbegriffe des Öffentlichen und Privaten Rechts".

Periods of study abroad

Student mobility is actively promoted within the scope of the Bachelor's degree programme Business and Law. The experience of intercultural exchange coupled with the acquisition and expansion of foreign language skills serve as ideal preparation for a career in the globalised economy. Students are therefore strongly encouraged to spend one semester studying at a foreign university.

Careers and occupational profiles

Our graduates are trained for "interface functions" in private enterprises and in the public sector. They are endowed with key qualifications, allowing them to collaborate closely with both economists and legal practitioners.

What our graduates say

"During the course of my studies I acquired valuable skills, allowing me to recognise points of intersection between economic and legal matters, and to think and act in an interdisciplinary manner. This has proven to be a highly appreciated set of competences in my professional life, particularly in jobs requiring constant close collaboration with both business managers and legal practitioners."
