The successful completion of the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration will qualify you for positions in the fields of economics, politics and administration.

Master’s degree

Why study Business Administration at HU?

Since its re-establishment, the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration at HU has made a name for itself through its major commitment to teaching and research - an approach largely centred around applying quantitative methods and processes to economic issues. Building on that success, the Faculty’s range of courses will continue to focus on learning and applying complex quantitative economic methods in future. The first two professional university degrees - B.Sc. in Economics and B.Sc. in Business Administration - will ready you for the requirements of the job market. They provide you with a rigorous, profile-orientated foundation in the specialized knowledge you will need to act effectively and successfully in a range of professional fields. You should be interested in and have an aptitude for subjects such as statistics and mathematics. You can test yourself at hu.berlin/wiwi-test.
