A distinctive feature of the Bachelor in Economics and Business Administration in Frankfurt is the close integration of these two disciplines within a single degree course. You will receive a sound education in both areas, giving you the widest possible choice of professional activities in national or international companies, research institutes, public administration, associations and international organizations.

The broad business and economics orientation of the Frankfurt Bachelor not only provides you with an excellent basis for successfully starting your career, it also allows you to continue expanding and deepening your knowledge in a Master program.

We impart both theoretical and practical professional knowledge, enabling you to recognize economic challenges independently and to develop solutions and alternative courses of action on a scientifically informed basis. 

The primary aims of this demanding and finely tuned curriculum are to impart general methodological competence, i.e. the ability to apply methodological and theoretical principles, and the ability to translate scientific findings into responsible action. In order to achieve this, we offer you a first-class academic environment.

Support and assistance

Furthermore, we support you from the first day you arrive until your preparations for a career.

Learning in small groups and incorporating ethical considerations into economic assessments contribute to your personal development as well as your ability to take responsible action.
