The degree program
The six-semester degree program comprises 60% lectures in law with a special focus on European and intentional law, and 40% lectures with business administration and economic contents. This bachelor's degree program pursues the concept of a high-quality and board basic education. A first specialization takes place within the framework of required modules. Reinforcing specialization is then possible in the master's course. The graduates therefore can work universally if they want to start their careers after completing their bachelor's degree program. The broad basic education offers many options the area of economic law and business administration for the recommended continuation of the studies towards a master's degree.
An internship of at least 3 months duration in a suitable business enterprise, a suitable freelance practice / law firm or in a suitable public body (authority, court) is mandatory for this study program. The internship can be completed with business-administration, legal or interdisciplinary references. A much longer internship is recommended to those who want to start their careers right after they acquire their bachelor's degrees.
Skilled professionals for economic law have very good career opportunities in particular in the interface areas in which well-founded economic and legal knowledge is needed. This specifically includes work in the area of auditing and tax consulting, in corporate consulting, insolvency administration and restructuring of companies, in contract management or in the HR area.
Typical activities for business lawyers consist also of purchasing, sales, management assistance, and later as managing director in chambers of industry and commerce and various associations. There are other options in the area of public administrations (e.g. Auswärtiges Amt, Federal Cartel Office, etc.), but also in purely business-administrative tasks with small legal shares (e.g. marketing, banking and insurance areas.
Examination regulations/degree plan/module manuals/internship rules
Examination regulations (POs) specify the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). Students are automatically subject to the current version of their PO when they matriculate for their first subject-related semester. This means that even if the PO changes during their studies, the original version according to which they matriculated will remain valid (provided that the PO does not expire).
The respective degree plan is the recommended example progress of the studies in individual subjects and is part of a PO.
Supplementary provisions and details for any module to be studied can be found in the module manually (e.g. requirements for taking a written test or content-related information on the modules/events, ...).
The internship rules define the conditions under which the required or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend at least looking at the study schedule for your degree program before the lecture time starts, to ensure that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
