Management and Economics
The faculty at the Department of Management and Economics offer students a high quality programme with contemporary academic content. Our students learn how to generate knowledge themselves and become inspiring personalities. As part of the international academic community we conduct rigorous, methodical, and relevant research.
We publish in renowned journals and participate actively in international research. Through cooperation with companies and the use of case studies, field studies, and applied research we are able to offer a wide range of taught courses, which enhances the prospects of our graduates to meet the increasing demands on managers with a global mindset. In executive education we deliver open enrolment and corporate programmes, in which we draw together the expertise within our Department. True to our slogan ‘Embedding leadership and organization in strategy!’, we pay particular attention to the impact of executive education on our clients’ companies.
Furthermore, interfacing with the newly founded EBS Law School, we seek to promote interaction between business and law, ensuring on the one hand a solid grounding in law that meets the highest standards. On the other hand research and teaching at the University also benefit from the synergies between law and economics.
