About this course

The Business Administration (BWL) is - like economics (VWL) - a branch of economics. It examines and explains the terms and features of enterprises and companies of the manufacturing sector, commerce and the banking industry, transport, public economy and the insurance industry. The key for an operating variables (resources, labor, work processes, raw material procurement and sales) are detected and determined their interdependencies in terms of profitability. The corporate governance (management) is responsible for developing and enforcing all substantial decisions in a company, even in an international context. 
The effort correlations to quantify and the fact that decisions are computer-assisted preparation, have the importance of mathematics and computer science for business administration to let something grow. At the same time the business administration is closely linked to the commercial practice. A similar teaching can therefore be useful for the study and future careers.

There is a close relationship between business administration and economics. Because of his many professional activities accessible, it seems sensible to renounce too early specialization in the study, as for entrepreneurial leadership positions both operational knowledge and the ability to be required to incorporate this knowledge into the overall economy. This that the duty areas in business studies and economics are largely identical reasons.
