Overview of dates and deadlines

The degree program

The master's degree program "Plural economics" is a consecutive full-time degree program with a regular study time of four semesters. Students can either choose the focus "Management and environmental design" or "Political economics". The students acquire competences partially in shared basic and required modules that serve to meet their specific interests, reinforce them and expand their knowledge.


Management and environmental design
The plural management contains various theories, methods and approaches of design and development of organizations. Communication, ethics, decisions and organization development form the basis of the focus. This is about systemic diagnosis, design by interventions and reflexive learning. The business fields include non-governmental organizations, authorities, social companies and private companies.

Political economics
The focus of the subject "Political economics" is not only on "classical concepts" but also on alternative schools of thought, for example including (post)Keynesian, but also post-growth and cultural-economic theory approaches.
The students are qualified to analyse and help design the economic processes in their social and political dimensions. The professional fields include work in ministries and authorities as well as in labour unions, civilian organizations, associations, elements and principles, university facilities and business journalism.

Admission requirements

1) A first qualifying degree from the area of economics/business administration (Bachelor, Diploma, Magister)

2) equivalent examination with a sufficient economic or business administration share (e.g. state examination), at least completed with the grade satisfactory (3.0).

Study organization

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.
