Business Administration for the Resources Based Industry

Study concept

This specialised economics study program enables students to obtain a degree that is particularly prestigious and whose content perfectly harmonises with the profile of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg University of Resources and the requirements of practice: The diploma program in Business Administration for Resource Management leads to the degree of Diplomkauffrau/-mann in nine semesters, in which the traditional (8-semester) business education is combined with an engineering specialisation (one semester). The aim of this degree programme is to impart a broad range of specialist knowledge on the basis of which graduates can not only contribute to the effective and efficient solution of current and future problems in the resources industry, but can also, as the managers of tomorrow, decide where their path should lead.

Please note that this study program will be discontinued in the summer semester of 2024. Enrolment is therefore no longer possible.

You can continue to study the Energy and Resource Management specialisation with us. In the Bachelor of Business Administration, we offer the specialisation "Energy and Resource Management", which you can also continue in the Master of Business Administration.
