Mission Statement

The Department of Management und Microeconomics at Goethe University is the first and only of its kind in Germany. Traditionally there is a strong divide between economics and management science, but we follow top US business schools in looking at common themes and combining methods from various disciplines. Our research focuses on markets and organizations. We look at strategic behavior of firms in the market, competition policy and regulation, entrepreneurship, organizational design, human resources, motivation and leadership.

Our goal is to publish in excellent international journals and to promote the transfer of knowledge from science to management practice and from management practice to science. We train our students to understand analytical and strategic concepts that are applied to reality through talks and projects with practitioners, and in Bachelor and Master theses.

Graduates with a focus on Management and Microeconomics mainly work in general management, in the consulting and financial industry, and in human resource and organizational development.
