Overview

Economics degree offered by the University of Freiburg focuses on building up analytical capacities rather than trying to cover all aspects of the field, because we believe that in a rapidly changing economic and business environment it is the ability to identify, structure, analyze, and solve changing problems that matters. Flexibility demands the ability to collect, assess, and process information in an analytical and systematical way rather than to maximize the storage of information that will typically be short-lived and may be very specific to the situation decision-makers are confronted with or the industry they are operating in.

Career Opportunities

The program is targeted at post graduates of high potential to be recruited for high and top positions in industry, national administrations, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, and academia. Decisionmaking and management positions demand increasingly broad analytical skills and interdisciplinary knowledge; pure technical or business related skills and experiences will not be sufficient in the near future. Our program reflects these new demands:

We provide students with state-of-the-art economic expertise and management know-how linked with complementary courses from other disciplines.

Thus, our master program focus on people and/or positions that require a broad ranging knowledge and an excellent command of up-to-date analytical and management tools in order to solve complex, multi-level problems in the international market place, the political arena, or in academia.
