The diploma program in economics (240 ECTS, minimum 8 semesters of study, academic degree Magister) has been aligned with the curriculum of the newly introduced Bachelor degree in Economics and will be in force in its new version from 1.10.2009.
For students of economics which begin their studies in the winter term 2009/10 the advantage is to decide during their studies for the diploma program (currently still continuing at the JKU) or for the modern “Bologna-Structur” (with Bachelor and Master programes). The bachelor program with the 'new' diploma will become effective on 01/10/2009, master programs "Economics" and "Management & Applied Economics" are currently being worked out and are expected in winter 2010/11 (or 2011/12) to enter into force.
Students who have begun their diploma in economics before the winter semester 2009/10 may choose to complete the "old" curriculum (as amended on 1.8.2007) or to change for the "new" curriculum (diploma program as amended on 10/01/2009 or Bachelor's degree). In this case pay attention to the regulations cited in the curriculum and the enclosed equivalence list and transition arrangements. Furthermore the teaching and study service will held consultation hours for questions concerning WIWI (see News Board of KUSSS).
