Bachelor Business & Economics

Since fall 2009 the JKU provides the opportunity to follow a bachelors program in economics (180 ECTS, 6 Semester, leading to the degree Grad Bachelor of Science). Economics constitutes a considerable part of this program in Business and Economics. A wide range of courses in economics and the two specializations Economics and Management and Applied Economics show the importance of Economics in the Bachelor studies.
The bachelor in economics provides an excellent basis for a wide range of careers, in management, with the government or economic research. The strength of this program lies in flexibility to combine Economics and Business courses. After a well structured entry phase follows the specialization phase, where students can compose their own program of courses, depending upon interests and career aspirations.
