The study consists of modules. It can either be completed function oriented or inter-functional. The offered study variations allow the students to specialize according to their functional and language preferences. There are four alternative tracks for the function oriented study options. The faculty has introduced four alternative tracks with the following titles:
A function oriented subject specific education has its study emphasis in one of the four tracks. Alternatively, students may choose a broader inter-functional study program. This allows the students to reasonably select courses from the entire module catalog for all tracks.
Content of the Modules
Within their studies, the students attend Track Modules, Research Modules as well as Support Modules respectively Language Modules. Finally, you will compose your Master Thesis and defend it in a colloquium.
Track Modules (T-Modules) serve the purpose of teaching core knowledge and core competences from economic subjects. Depending on the selected study variation, six to eight modules from the track modules (T-Modules) offered have to be successfully completed. Because of these alternatives, you may specialize your studies, according to your individual educational preferences.
Subject matter of the Research Modules (R-Modules) can be – based on the underlying Track Module – for example a project work, a working paper, an interdisciplinary seminar, a simulation game, an excursion, a workshop lasting several days with practitioners or other universities.
Support Modules (S-Modules) conduce to the interdisciplinary education (interdisciplinary/non-subject related qualifications) and cannot be track modules from the offered tracks FACT, FINE, IOM or M & M. Support Modules can involve among others the future of Europe as an economic region and the development of institutions.
