The Bachelor's study programme in Business Law offers students practice-oriented education on a sound academic basis. Students learn a combination of knowledge and applicable skills in the law as well as in business and economics.

The programme’s stand-out element is its sustainability and ethics component, reflecting both the needs of the labour market and the interest of the students. Graduates thus gain a qualification that sets them apart on the labour market. 

Why Choose This Programme?

The study programme is aimed at people with a university entrance qualification who want to work at the interface between the law and business disciplines. Modules on sustainability and ethics in the legal and business fields are also part of the study programme.

How is the programme structured?

The programme teaching comprises legal (50%) and business (30%) content as well as knowledge and skills related to key qualifications, sustainability and ethics (20%).

Semesters 1 to 4 offer students a full grounding in basic principles of the subjects. This enables the students to then complete a work placement in the 5th semester that counts towards their degree. In semesters 6 and 7, students focus on special fields and subjects by taking compulsory elective modules as well as completing a Bachelor’s thesis.
