BBE Specializations in Economics

Our Department offers 2 specializations in Economics:
Economics Core and Economics Fields

Why specializations in Economics?


We are happy to provide supervision for Bachelor-thesis on the basis of successful participation in field courses.

Students who are interested in achieving a primer in economics can study the Core in isolation (20 ECTS).

Students who want to achieve expert knowledge in economics should study both Core + Fields (40 ECTS).

(Note: If you intend to proceed your education with a Master's degree in Economics later, we strongly advise you to study both Core +Fields.)

structure of studying

…not to take any field courses prior to completing the relevant courses of the Foundations (i.e., Foundations in Microeconomics +Foundations in Macroeconomics + Quantitative Methods I) and the following three courses of the Core: Adv. Micro + Adv. Macro + Econometrics I.

…to take Advanced Microeconomics only after having completed Foundations in Microeconomics and to take Advanced Macroeconomics only after having completed Foundations in Macroeconomics.
