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.

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” …

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.


This module introduces students to essential macroeconomic models and concepts for closed and open economies like the AD/AS-, the IS-LM-, and the Mundell-Fleming model. A special focus is given to macroeconomic policy, especially monetary policy. In this context the two most prominent theories of money – the quantity and the liquidity preference theory – are introduced as well as the so-called Phillips-curve discussion as a modern theory of inflation and a policy trade-off between inflation and unemployment. The theoretical know-how is finally applied by analyzing and discussing the respective monetary policy of the ECB. The course starts with an introduction of the most important measures of the macroeconomy: the gross domestic product (GDP), the price level and the inflation rate as well as the current and the capital account.
