The English-language master's degree program Economics conveys to students the analytical and methodological knowledge, models, and problem-solving approaches for key societal challenges. The program is well grounded theoretically, is research-oriented, and covers all content-related areas of economics. It provides students with advanced knowledge of mathematics, statistics, and econometrics, among other things, and the ability to understand complex economic models and judge the relevance and the limitations of economic theories. Students are successively introduced to current topics and debates in economic research and have the opportunity to apply their knowledge to a broad spectrum of economic topics.

The contents of this degree program and its methodologies are oriented by design toward the future. For example, changes in markets driven by digitalization and internationalization are important topics in this degree program. Students are given a solid and advanced foundation of knowledge of the core areas of macro- and microeconomics, the economics of financial markets, and econometrics. In addition, students are gradually introduced to the latest research in a targeted manner through research seminars, where they discuss new research results and work on their own research projects.
