Economic Sciences

Economic Sciences deal with economic aspects and processes, either with regard to a company or with regard to entire countries, continents, and societies. As an economist, you are an "all-rounder". Since every company has to do business and therefore needs managers, you can work in small, medium-sized, and large companies as well as in banks, insurance companies, public authorities, and other institutions. Economic subjects can concentrate on Business Administration (BWL) and Economics (VWL), but they can also combine content from other subjects, such as Engineering Sciences, and thus broaden the focus to other subject areas. One example of this would be Industrial Engineering. While a Bachelor's degree in Economics (usually a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts) allows you to begin your career in a middle management position, a Master's degree usually allows you to enter higher management or even leadership positions directly.
