This module consists of two seminars (2 weekly contact hours per seminar) dealing with several topics from the broad field of sustainability, economics and management during term.

The module’s intention is to integrate current research activities of the University from the research areas of sustainability, economics and management into teaching activities. The Module provides students the possibility to actively participate in current research at Oldenburg University. The module’s seminars each year deal with different projects and are thus designed each year by a different group of Oldenburg located researchers.
This teaching concept provides the interface between theory and application of scientific theories into research practise. Thus, this module also introduces research work at universities in general.
