The first year of the programme consists of compulsory courses that are similar for both major specialisations. This gives our students the opportunity to make a considered choice about which specialisation they wish to graduate in. Courses include typical economics subjects like macro- and microeconomics, business subjects like organisation and management accounting, and important supportive courses like mathematics and statistics. On average, students receive 15 hours of lectures and tutorials a week and around 25 hours are needed to study literature and complete assignments. In the second year students choose between two major specializations. Both specialisations offer different tracks. Tracks in the specialisation Economics: § Economics § Minor track Economics § International Economics § International Economics and Finance § Industrial Organisation Tracks in the specialisation Business Studies: § Business Studies § Minor track Business Studies
