Economics (Bachelor of Science; Master of Science)

The study of economics qualifies students to develop adequate solutions wherever social, entrepreneurial or even personal goals are not realized to the desired extent. Relevant economic problems can be found, for example, in goods, services, labor and environmental markets, in the restructuring of the social network or in the creation of new markets such as new media, telecommunications, transport and health. Economists are needed wherever it comes to solving structural problems. Especially in Bayreuth, the economists are ideally prepared for their later professional life by practical teaching with reference to current economic problems.
