Economics examines fundamental economic relationships and principles in a society both for individual economic units (microeconomics) and economies as a whole (macroeconomics).

Economics also encompasses the study of business administration, which is concerned with the economic relationships and principles of individual companies and provides insights into company structures and processes. The main objective of the Economics degree program is to provide students with basic and more in-depth knowledge of economics and economic methodologies, but also with knowledge of aspects of business administration that are relevant to economic analysis (investment, financing, theory of the firm). In addition, students learn quantitative methods (mathematics for economists, statistics, econometrics) that aid in the analysis and representation of economic relationships.

The degree program is designed to teach students to recognize economic relationships in their breadth, work through economic problems with the aid of appropriate methodologies, and critically assess their consequences.


Possible lines of work:

Administration (public service, professional/industry associations), financial planning/management, labor/social sector, auditing, tax consulting, corporate consulting, banks, insurance companies, non-profit organizations/non-governmental organizations (NGOs), media industry/business journalism, academia (teaching/research at universities, research institutions, etc.)

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.
