Description & teaching content

At the Institute of Management (IfU), business administration is understood as an applied science. On the basis of research aligned with the standards of the international scientific community, contributions are made to the development and application of modern concepts and instructions for practice. The emphasis in SBWL is placed on well-founded theoretical training and practical implementation of strategic and operative business management instruments. Special emphasis is placed on the area of controlling. The course offerings are supplemented by courses in the area of management consulting.

Job profile

The program of specialization primarily addresses three groups of students:

  • Future managers in the areas of controlling and finance: Students who are planning to start their professional career in a medium-sized or larger company in one of the areas of con- trolling, accounting, corporate planning or internal auditing (specialists) and who are aiming for a management position in one of these areas as a long-term goal.
  • All-rounders in medium-sized companies: Students who intend to take on management functions in medium-sized companies as junior staff.
  • Future top management consultants: Students who wish to pursue a career in international management consulting.

2nd semester:

Die Aufnahme erfolgte bei mir über den Notendurchschnitt (1,3 war mein Notendurchschnitt). Ich habe Kurs 1 und Kurs 2 in diesem Semester absolviert und nach meinen Gefühl absolvieren sehr viele meine Kolleg*innen die SBWL im 3. Semester. Kurs 1 war zwar sehr aufwendig aber Frau Javed hat die Inhalte gut und verständlich vermittelt, womit die Absolvierung eindeutig leichter ist. Kurs 2 war im Vergleich zu Kurs 1 recht entspannt. Hierbei sind vor allem Assignments (individual und group assignments) und die Endklausur für die Benotung relevant. Es sind beide Kurse darauf aufgelegt, dass man auch gute Noten (z. B. Sehr Gut) erzielen kann, wenn man genügend Aufwand hineinsteckt. Der Endterm von Kurs 1 ist leider mit Zeitdruck behaftet, obwohl stofftechnisch nichts Unerwartetes kommt. Ein Tipp von mir: Man sollte hierbei zuerst die Beispiele machen und erst am Schluss die Theoriefragen
