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. Thus, students learn the basic terms, methods and concepts of the subject and acquire the competence to analyze economic facts.
