Economics and Business Administration deals with the analysis of all kinds of economic relationships between businesses, consumers and state institutions. Economics skills are indispensable in most areas of today's working world, and can be applied in many ways. Studying Economics and Business Administration will help you attain these skills. At the University of Oldenburg, a great deal of emphasis is placed on combining a number of elements to create a good general knowledge of the subject. These parts include business administration, which examines organisation and function of businesses; national economics (VWL), which analyses connections on the broader economic level; as well as jurisprudence, which seeks to contribute to the overall understanding of the subject by exploring its legal aspects and relationships. In the bachelor's programme in Economics and Business Administration at the University of Oldenburg, you will learn to analyse economic issues, and to interpret and to take different viewpoints into account concerning differing opinions and recommended courses of action for businesses, policy, and organisations.
After completing the bachelor's programme, you will have at your disposal the skills necessary to enter (or re-enter) the labour market. The bachelor's programme in Economics and Business Administration teaches both the theory and the transfer skills necessary for solving problems in the areas of business and economics. The degree can lead to a number of careers according to interest and area of specialisation, including such fields as finance and accounting, organisation and personnel, or in marketing in middle sized and large companies. Additional fields of potential employment include banking, associations and organisations.
Should you be interested in developing a deeper understanding of this field, (for example if you aim for an academic career), you also have the opportunity to build upon your bachelor's degree with a corresponding master's programme. You can do this at a number of universities in Germany and abroad. At the University of Oldenburg, you can choose from several master's programmes in economics, including the (M.A.) Business Administration, Economics and Law, Management Consulting and Sustainability Economics and Management.
