Emphasis in Teaching
Teaching at the Department of Management is traditionally designed in a creative and innovative manner. It is important to us that our students are provided with a broad knowledge, as well as an in-depth technical knowledge. Within the Common Body of Knowledge at WU (CBK I) the following courses are thus offered by the Department of Management:
Personnel Management, Leadership, Organizational Behavior I
Accounting and Management Control I
Thousands of students are attending these courses each year: They have particular significance since they guarantee the student's cognitive general knowledge. These basic courses are complemented by courses on Personnel Management, Leadership, Organizational Behavior II, the lecture Social Skills (Bachelor's programs Business Law and Business, Economics and Social Sciences - majors Business Administration, Economics and Socio-Economics, and Information Systems) and the enrichment workshops Social Skills, which are being organized and held in cooperation with other Departments at WU.
In business administration we also offer in-depth technical knowledge via the specializations in Change Management and Management Development, International Human Resource Management, Human Resource Management, Management & Organizational Behavior, and Teaching Methods in Business Administration. The Institute for Business Education trains business teachers in its Master Program which can be completed on a full time or part time basis. In addition to the mentioned programs with their respective USP, the Department of Management is also involved with the following competence fields and specializations with other Departments at WU: General Management, Gender and Diversity Management, and Public Management. The Department comprises PhD Programs, the Postgraduate Management MBA, the Study Program in Social Management, as well as the University Study Program in Health Care Management.
In all these programs, the Master and PhD Programs (especially the Master Programs Management and Business Education) cooperation with other (not only Business Administration focused) Departments at WU is essential. Practically oriented teaching, as we understand it, implies further the integration of academically trained and qualified experts in our study programs. We can refer to sustained and successful partnerships.
