What would it be like if the economy was about more than just financial growth?
Welcome to the Responsible Business section. Here we work together on an economic vision in which profit and responsibility, career and personality development, performance and sustainability go hand in hand.
Specialization Responsible Business
Would you like to take on responsibility and make a career in line with your personal values? Then Responsible Business is just the right focus for your International Business studies.
In the Responsible Business area, you will take a look at current and future business developments: How can we trade sensibly in times of globalization and climate change? How can we think profit- and growth-oriented and still act in a socially fair and ecologically sustainable way? These are not just questions that young people are asking themselves. Political institutions and international corporations face enormous challenges. They need people who can take responsibility because they know how. And it is precisely this "how" that we give you. Together we develop strategies for a better world. International guest lecturers as well as partner companies from the region help us with this.
The specialist knowledge you gain will enable you to understand all the important players on the international business scene and to mediate between them skillfully. Your expertise will be as much in demand in the energy sector as it will be in culture, marketing or banking.
The specialization for all those who
- want to do more than just make a career
- want to assume social responsibility
- want to question the market and its mechanisms
Responsible business is your thing? Then International Business is your study.
The world can also be understood as a marketplace. But who determines the rules according to which games are played? Who are the players and how is everything connected? In the International Business course, you will look behind the scenes of the business world and take the best of all perspectives - your very own personal one. Whether more intercultural, communicative or sustainable, as in your chosen specialization Responsible Business: By setting a focus, you determine which direction your International Business studies take.
This course of study starts every winter semester in September.
