Students in the Bachelor of Arts degree program examine economic phenomena and their interrelationships in both past and present. Economics is the study of the interdependencies and interactions between all participants in economic life (the state, companies, private households, consumers) on both a macro- and micro-economic scale, i.e. the levels of political economy and of individual economic units. While revolving around fundamental economic concepts and theory, this degree program requires mathematical competency as mathematics is an important part of economics and the studies. Students may choose a concentration in economic policy, business and management, business and finance, business and strategic decision-making or business and data.

The degree program is designed to enable students to view complex interdisciplinary questions and problems from an economic perspective. This includes identifying the relevant actors, forecasting economic consequences and outlining potential courses of action. The program is method, analysis and research-oriented and builds up students’ basic quantitative competency.

This subject must be combined with a second subject.

Possible lines of work:

Employment in areas that are related to economic topics, administration (public service, professional, trade or industry associations), administrative specialist (e.g. in trade or industry associations, political parties or NGOs), labor/social sector, press or public relations (e.g. in private enterprises or state facilities), corporate consulting, journalism (editing/proofreading at news agencies, publishers, radio, television, etc.)

Job options strongly depend on a graduate’s chosen major.

At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
