The degree program is based on general business administration training, which is supplemented by further insights into the functional and methodological features of business management in insurance, banking, and finance companies.

This fundamental knowledge of business administration is supplemented by modules in quantitative methods as well as elements of risk management and management in the fields of insurance, banking, and financial management. Teaching currently focuses on the digitization of financial service processes in particular.

In the fourth semester, you will choose to specialize in either “Insurance” or “Banking”.

The required elective subjects in the 5th semester and the courses offered by the Language Center and the Competence & Career Center enable you to acquire additional qualifications.
