Course content

The focus of the course is on theoretical and empirical analysis of economic relationships. It provides the knowledge for analysing problems relating to economic policy strategies. A focal point of the course is the teaching and use of application-oriented analysis techniques and methods for economic policy, society and management. Small course groups provide you with direct access to the faculty and guarantee a high level of satisfaction amongst students.

This is why we recommend a degree course in Economics at the HSG:

  • Expert knowledge in Economics will open up diverse career paths in industry, public finance, economic policy, international organisations and science.
  • By educating you in methodological skills we provide you with the tools for solving problems on the basis of modern theory and empirical evidence with a better understanding of individual incentives and economic processes.
  • Intellectual challenge in solving specific economic problems in society, the private sector and politics: incentive systems, corporate governance, the financial crisis, globalisation, ageing, unemployment, the welfare state, growth and distribution.

This programme is taught in English and German.
