This bachelor's programme, which lasts three years or six semesters, lays philosophical and economic foundations. As an example, the handling of difficult decision-making problems is dealt with to the extent that graduates possess ideal prerequisites for direct career entry in this regard.

My studies in Bayreuth opened my eyes: Business and ethics are compatible. Not every idealistic approach can be implemented. But now I'm getting the knowledge I need to know what adjustments can be made.
