- The basic requirement for studying at a university is the so-called university entrance qualification, e.g. the Abitur. This qualification can be obtained in different ways and enables its holder to study either at a university or at a Fachhochschule (university of applied sciences). The entitlements listed below are those valid in Lower Saxony.
Preliminary examination of the university entrance qualification (HZB)
Prospective students who would like to have their university entrance entitlement (HZB) examined prior to applying for enrolment (i.e. university entrance qualifications on the grounds of vocational education and training, entrance qualifications for universities of applied sciences, EU university entrance qualifications acquired outside Germany) can submit their university entrance qualification documents to the University’s Registrar’s Office from the middle of May
The Bachelor's programme in Business Administration is divided into the orientation phase (1st and 2nd semesters) and the in-depth and specialization phase (3rd to 6th semester).
In the orientation phase (1st and 2nd semesters) students acquire knowledge of the basic issues and approaches to solutions of the economic sciences as well as of several important neighboring disciplines. In addition to knowledge in business and economics, special knowledge in dealing with information and communication systems is acquired, as well as knowledge in the area of the relevant mathematical and statistical methods and law.
The in-depth and specialization studies (3rd to 6th semesters)serve to complete the basic education in business (business in-depth studies). Students may additionally direct their studies towards their own individual interests and occupational desires. The areas within which modules can be selected comprise business specialization, economic in-depth knowledge, the area of further economic sciences (with offers from Quantitative Methods, Economic and Human Resource Education, Economic and Social History or Economic Psychology, among others) and the area 'Economic Foreign languages and General Studies'. At least one foreign language module must be completed in the latter named area. Additional foreign language modules as well as modules from the courses offered in other faculties may be chosen, even if the subject areas do not belong to the economic sciences (general studies). The offered modules in the individual areas enable the students to acquire basic key qualifications for a graduate course of study or practical occupational skills.
