The Economics degree program examines economic phenomena and their interrelationships in the past and in the present. Economics is divided into macroeconomics and business administration. Macroeconomics examines aspects of economies as a whole, that is, it examines the interdependencies and interactions of all participants in economic life (the state, companies, private households, consumers). Business administration, on the other hand, generally studies individual economic units and the interrelationships and interdependences within individual firms or households. This degree program primarily teaches basic economic concepts and economic thinking.  Mathematics, as a key partner discipline to economics, is part of this program’s basic training. In addition, students may develop profiles by choosing focus areas in either macroeconomics or business administration: economy and policy, economy and corporate management, economy and financing, economy and strategic decision-making, and economy and data.

The degree program is designed to enable students to view complex interdisciplinary questions and problems from a economic perspective. This includes the identification of the actors, the economic consequences, and options for what actions to take. The program has a methodological, analytical, and research-oriented focus, and provides students with basic quantitative knowledge as well.

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.
