Information for Incoming Students

A warm Welcome to Bielefeld University, especially to our Faculty of Business Administration and Economics!

These pages are for students interested in or nominated for a study period of one or two semesters at Bielefeld University within the European exchange program Erasmus/QEM.

Modern study courses, an outstanding infrastructure, exceptional support services and co-operations around the world - Bielefeld University is an excellent choice. Students are the centre of attention and that is why projects on the improvement of study courses are constantly being established and expanded. This effort was rewarded with a success in the nationwide competition "Initiative for excellent teaching", where Bielefeld University was one of 6 universities in Germany that was awarded a prize for a unique teaching and study culture.

The fundamental objective of Economics and Business Administration studies is to explain economic interrelations and to make predictions about the effects of economic decisions. The focus is on understanding and shaping economic processes and structures. Theoretical analyses as well as empirical research are necessary in order to achieve these goals. Both aspects are embraced by teaching and research conducted within the Faculty of Business Administration and Economics. The emphasis placed on quantitative approaches in our faculty results from the insight that complex and interdependent economic relationships can frequently be described and conveyed with greater precision by using mathematical methods rather than verbal means.

The Faculty comprises the three disciplines Business Administration, Economics and Statistics/Econometrics, furthermore the Institute of Mathematical Economics IMW.

A broad variety of study courses and numerous possibilities are offered to combine different subjects. The exceptionally flexible course system and an additional "individual module", in which students can choose courses from all subjects, enable students to customize their studies according to their personal interests.
