Economics (postgraduate program)

Study concept

The subject of business administration is the efficient design of processes in organizations, e.g. in private companies or in public administration. In the future, these tasks will increasingly be performed by senior engineers, mathematicians, and scientists with additional qualifications in business administration. Business management expertise has also become indispensable in small and medium-sized companies and for innovative start-ups.

A special feature of the postgraduate program is that it can also be completed within 7 semesters while working ( The seminars are then held in Frankfurt am Main. It is possible to switch between on-campus and part-time study and vice versa. The postgraduate degree program in Economics therefore offers an excellent alternative for acquiring solid knowledge in the field of economics, at the university level and with the degree of Diplom-Wirtschaftsingenieur, with the option of part-time study in Frankfurt am Main.
