Cosmopolitan, International Experience makes it easier for graduates from economics or social sciences to enter the Job Market.

Raising the Bar of Excellence

Law

The art of winning your case in court is much more than just persuasive reasoning or argument. It requires attention to every single detail, analytical thinking and seeing beyond the problem.

The programme cultivates an analytical mindset that allows graduates to draw critical conclusions in an impartial and effective manner while enabling graduates to persuasively critically reason and argue ideas in the written word and in eloquent discourse alike.

Courses at universities and colleges LLB degrees that provide the skills and knowledge required to practice in law, to BA/BSc degrees that focus on law more as an academic subject. As with other academic courses, it’s possible to combine many different subjects together. Common combinations include law with business, management, criminology, accounting, policing and a modern foreign language.

Economics

Today, nearly every sector from healthcare to cultural management requires economic expertise. There are a corresponding number of professional opportunities for economists. They can be found everywhere – as operations managers in municipal enterprises or human resources departments in large companies, in controlling or sales and marketing, as freelance consultants and as departmental managers or executives in medium-sized companies. Courses of study such as sports economics, transport management or management in healthcare and social management combine economic expertise with specific industry knowledge and prepare you to work in relevant areas in a targeted manner.

Everyone around the world is familiar with global players such as BMW or Siemens. Last but not least, small and medium-sized companies are looking for well-trained economists with international experience. The extent of the need is reflected at the universities: around ten percent of students now choose international business administration/management – twice as many as choose economics.

Courses in banking and finance are also very popular. Here, you will learn how internationally networked markets, banking, and the constantly changing financial markets operate. Very important: you should be happy using mathematical and statistical methods because they are an integral part of the course.

Social Sciences

What influences people and societies? Economics of course, but also culture and politics. Degree programmes in social sciences such as sociology and politics enable you to conduct multidisciplinary study across many different disciplines. There are points of contact with psychology and educational theory as well as with economics, anthropology, and history.

Empirical research is an important component of social science studies. Survey interviews, observations or measurements are used to collect statements which are then evaluated. Here, too, a grasp of mathematics is important, because statistics is one of the core subjects. In this discipline, you learn how to gather, structure and present information. This is one of the essential qualifications sought by employers.

This is important because the employment outlook for sociologists is not as clear-cut as for subjects such as medicine or the natural sciences. There are, however, plenty of job opportunities: social scientists work in market and opinion research, for political parties, associations, and foundations, as well as in personnel management, corporate planning, and marketing. You should, therefore, find a focus as early as possible and specialize (via work placements or subsidiary subjects) during the course.
