Course Overview

The bachelor’s course trains you to become an expert with personnel-oriented responsibility. You will receive the necessary economic fundamentals in bookkeeping and accounting, cost and performance accounting or personnel and company management. You will be methodically trained in business mathematics, statistics or project management, for example. Your personnel-related subjects give you, among other things, an insight into the topics of digital HR, personnel controlling and payroll. You round off these skills with soft skills in intercultural action skills or leadership 4.0. In addition, you will sharpen your career profile through three economic specializations from the areas of personnel, marketing and methods as well as business administration and industries.

Our bachelor's program is modular, which means that you study using subject areas that are divided into so-called "modules". Within these modules there is an introductory course and an in-depth course, which prepare you systematically for the completion of this module. Within the modules, you will receive ECTS points (European Credit Transfer System) for each successful completion, which document your performance. These ECTS points are internationally comparable and of course recognized.
