DESCRIPTION OF SUBJECT

The Bachelor’s Degree of Business Studies and Economics (WiWi) has been offered by the Faculty of Business and Economics as a six-semester ‘Bachelor of Science’ degree (B. Sc.) since the winter semester of 2008/2009.

The first half of this degree program will encompass the basic principles of business administration and economics, while the second half will aligned to the consolidation of specialist knowledge within the offered major, depending on the choice of the individual student. During the second half of the program the major focus of ‘Economic Evolution, Human Behavior and Policy’ will be introduced. This major will then be subdivided into two areas of focus; ‘Innovative Change and Human Behavior’ and ‘Institutional Development and Public Making’. Within each major, a clear research and practical relevance will be established by means of inquiry into a current business and/or economic questions.

The course program will also be supplemented with courses in methodical faculties such as mathematics, statistics and project management.

The Faculty of Business and Economics offers the 'Komplementärfach' Economics (~one third of the total study amount) for the first time in the fall semester of 2011/2012. It can be studied in combination with a 'Profilfach' (major field) within the so-called two-subjects Bachelor's degree. Graduates have the opportunity to gain basic knowledge on business and economic studies.

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 will choose, occupational fields will be within industry, public administration and non-profit organizations or within the academic system in Germany and abroad.

The field of acitivity of graduates of the 'Komplementärfach' Economics depends on their choice of their 'Profilfach'. Nevertheless, students of the 'Komplementärfach' have the possibilty to work in the economic system, administration or non-governmental organizations.

The faculty maintains intensive contacts with companies and offers students, among others the faculty careers day. This is a trade fair that provides a contact to companies directly in the premises of the faculty.

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. Field course Business Studies:accounting and accounts, marketing, company taxation, production & logistics and theory of the Firm
2. Field Course 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 will move to Economic Evolution, Human Behavior and Policy. In addition to the specialised content, key competencies such as teamwork and working scientifically will be imparted.
Major: ‘Economic Evolution, Human Behavior and Policy’ with the sub modules of ‘Innovative Change and Human Behavior’ and ‘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 a 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 is to help students to develop the general competencies that are essential for professional orientation and qualification. These courses can be specialised courses (e.g. sustainable management and law) or methodological courses (e.g. analysis of economic data).

The range of subjects taken within the first to fourth semester are identical for the studies of Economics and Business Studies. Therefore, a change within these subject areas is until the fourth semester possible.

This program is to be completed in six semesters with a Bachelor’s Thesis.

Within the 'Komplementärfach' of Business Studies and Economics the following subjects are compulsory: Introduction of Business Studies, Economics and Economic Data Analysis, Marketing, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Accounting, economic and financial policy, Industrical organisation and Production/Logistics. No specialisation is taken for the 'Komplementärfach'. Graduates of the 'Komplementärfach' chose their General Studies in agreement with their major subject.

Course schedule

Compulsory, elective and optional

All of the modules that are in comprised of foundation courses within this degree program are compulsory. As the students progress past this point within their studies, compulsory-elective will be included in the program.

General Studies include compulsory and elective subjects.


Within the Komplementärfach 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 more so than in the later semesters. In addition to lectures many courses will also offer tutorials. Through this combination of course types the entry into university for first year students will be eased and the transition from the school system into university studies will be facilitated by the faculty, particularly by the professors and research assistants thereof. In the second half of the program, seminars and the project module will be in the foreground, within which, scientific and independent working are the focal points. The final examination is then comprised of the bachelor’s thesis which will also be accompanied by a seminar.

In order to be awarded credit points for the internship it must be at least five weeks long. 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 under: https://www.uni-bremen.de/en/wiwi/practice/offers-for-students/internships/).

When preparing an internship report 6 ECTS will be acknowledged within General Studies.

The faculty maintains intensive contacts with companies and offers students, among others the faculty careers day. This is a trade fair that provides a contact to companies directly in the premises of the faculty.

Study abroad

Although a semester abroad is not compulsory, it is recommended. Due to 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 choice in major, there is a high flexibility in regard to the courses that will be accredited and therefore a semester abroad can be considered when planning the study program without thought to delaying the duration of studies. Support in organising 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.

These forms allow for ‘smaller’ examinations during the lecture period to be considered in the final grade.
When various examination forms are permissible within a course, the students will be informed at the beginning of the semester of which examination type will be carried out. The written and oral examinations take place following the lecture period. Any repeat examinations will generally be held at the beginning of the following semester.

So sendet der StugA Mitglieder in die Gremien des Fachbereichs, organisiert zum Großteil die Orientierungswoche am Fachbereich, bietet studentische Sprechzeiten an und wirkt aktiv beim Qualitätsmanagement des Fachbereichs mit.
