Semester 1

Introduction to Programming

This module is an introduction to IT for business. Students will learn about the technical functioning of information and communication systems, followed by a discussion of business application systems. The focus is on integration, ERP systems, management of business architecture and business process modeling. The final part of the module gives an introduction to relational databases and the creation of applications using Excel and VBA.

Finance

This module introduces students to the economic function of capital markets. The first part of the module covers firms’ investment decisions. Students will learn how to value cash flows that accrue in the future and to calculate returns correctly. The latter part of the module deals with the cost of financing. It introduces students to the concept of market efficiency and portfolio theory. Students will learn how to derive the cost of debt and equity financing and how to use this information to determine the firm value.

Financial Accounting

This module focuses on the basic concepts underlying financial statements and on the terminology and methods that allow the students to prepare, interpret, analyze, and evaluate corporate financial statements.

Students will acquire fundamental accounting skills for a management or other roles such as financial analyst. Students will gain an understanding of how financial statements are prepared and develop the skills to prepare financial statements. Students will be able to analyze corporate annual reports and to make investment decisions.

Mathematics

This module covers the general contents of the education in mathematics taught in undergraduate business administration courses. Its primary objective is to provide students with those methods that are necessary to address quantitative questions in economics. Starting with essential fundamentals on mathematical deduction the module introduces the basic concepts on sequences and their key properties. This directly leads over to the analysis of real valued functions and their wide field of applications in economics.

Microeconomics and Decision Making

The module integrates microeconomics with decision theory. After completing the module students are capable of analyzing decisions under different circumstances, and to discuss these decisions both from an empirical and from a normative perspective. They learn to distinguish accurately between decisions under certainty, uncertainty and risk, and they are fully aware of the difference to game theoretical situations. This enables students to analyze likely outcomes in different market structures such as perfect competition, oligopoly, monopoly and natural monopoly. Subsequently, students can apply their knowledge to regulatory debates on different topics such as environmental policy or the health sector.

Semester 2

Statistics and Probability

This module is an introduction to descriptive statistics, probability theory and inferential statistics including hypothesis testing with applications to economics and business. Descriptive statistics covers the examination of observed data. Key concepts are characteristic figures of samples like different kind of means, measures of variation, empirical distribution functions and their graphical representation. Of particular importance are measures for the dependency of several characteristics and the distinction between correlation and causality. Probability theory introduces the concepts of probability spaces, random variables and their theoretical distributions. They serve as a mathematical model to describe processes that are driven by coincidental input.

Markets, Incentives and Ethical Management

The module consists of two separate parts. The first one is, which is summarized under the title “Markets and Incentives”, draws on the content of the course Microeconomics I. It provides a short refresher in game theory and then explains the problem of oligopoly in detail. It introduces the notion of market power by many firms, how competition plays out in static and dynamic environments, how firms can collude and cartelize the market, and demonstrates that unregulated markets do not lead to an efficient outcome in this case. It also introduces asymmetric information, such moral hazard and adverse selection, in markets, which will allow students understand the problems of these ubiquitous phenomena in detail and also the resulting institutions to deal with them. Finally, the course considers the interaction between markets for different goods and introduces the concept of general equilibrium. The second part on “Ethical Management” …

Semester 3

Applied Research Methodology

This module deals with research methodology from an applied perspective. Today’s business environment is driven by empirical evidence of both quantitative and qualitative nature. Having the right methodological skills and competencies is therefore crucial not just for a career in academia, but for everyone faced with business decisions. The module is divided into two parts.

Operations Management

Economic theory assumes that on efficient markets prices adjust to match supply with demand: if there is excess demand, prices rise; if there is excess supply, prices fall. However, most managers in most enterprises would prefer to be able to match supply and demand without adjusting prices. To them excess demand means lost revenue and excess supply a waste of resources. They do not like the thought that an overproduction of the product that they are responsible for has to be scrapped or sold at discount prices. This course is about how companies can design their operations to better match supply with demand and thereby gain a significant competitive advantage over its rivals.
