Bachelor of Science


The Economics degree program concerns the fundamental economic relationships and principles of a society, with respect to both individual economic units (microeconomics) and economies as a whole (macroeconomics).

The degree is relevant and related to the study of business administration, which concerns the economic operation of individual companies and their constituent structures and processes. The BSc in Economics is primarily designed for students to acquire both basic and more advanced knowledge of economics and economic methodologies, and also concerns aspects of business administration that inform economic analysis (investment, financing, entrepreneurial theory). Students also learn quantitative methods
(mathematics for economists, statistics, econometrics) useful for analyzing and representing economic relationships.

The degree program is designed to enable students to identify a spectrum of economic relationships, address economic problems by applying appropriate methodologies and critically evaluate the consequences of economic policy decisions.

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.
