Business & Economics
The English Bachelor Program Business and Economics, or short BBE, offers an interdisciplinary education in a variety of fields. With a relatively small study body of 240 students much emphasis is placed on teamwork, group projects as well as goal-oriented thinking. Furthermore, an international perspective plays an integral role.
A valuable aspect of BBE is its multicultural community, consisting of about 50 percent foreign students from all over the world, with whom you will be working in groups throughout most of your courses. The community will persist even after you graduate, leaving you with a broad international network of future leaders and plenty of knowledge to enter in any international firm or start your own company.
While completing the BBE core courses, you will gain knowledge in Business, Economics, Data Analysis with R, Law and many other fields. A broad spectrum for a great start to take a generalist career path and offering a great foundation to build upon. As there are only PIs and VUE lectures, attendance is mandatory for almost all lectures and participation plays a large role in the grading of each course. The classes are therefore designed with an interactive aspect giving the students the opportunity to actively take action.
During the main program phase, around the 3rd semester, you will be able to pick specializations totaling 40 ECTS, so you can mix and match between 25 different specializations worth either 10 ECTS or 20 ECTS. Additionally, you will have to complete a total of 26 ECTS of free electives, which you can earn during internships, while studying abroad, by taking courses at other universities, taking additional courses at WU or a variety of other options. This gives you the possibility to pursue your interests and gain additional knowledge in various fields.
