Professional Expertise                        In addition, they know the basic theories and concepts of organizational design. The different forms and models of
                                              structural and procedural organization are familiar to them, as well as the
                                              Framework conditions and special features of project management. On this basis, they can judge real organizational
                                              concepts in a qualified way.

                                              The students become acquainted with the instruments of the operational personnel work as well as the theoretical
Methodological skills                         organization concepts and are able to estimate their respective relevance and to transfer them to practical
                                              application cases - for example in the context of project management.

                                              behaviour. Likewise, they have developed a deeper understanding of the social / ethical responsibility of
Personal and social skills                    corporate HR work and can also classify the importance of works councils. In addition, they have developed an
                                              understanding of the behavioural power of organizational regulations.

                                              The students are able to identify and evaluate the basic framework conditions for personnel management and
                                              organization based on the strategic overall orientation of a company. The students also recognize the importance of
                                              organizational design as an essential element in the management process, can assess the contribution of
Comprehensive action competence               organizational policy decisions to corporate governance and can also transfer this to concrete fields of action of
                                              project management.

                                                  Qualification goals and competencies
                                              Students are able to understand the basics and development of economics. They can describe economic behaviour
                                              of households and companies as well as the functioning of markets. Students can explain the assumptions under

                                              intervention in market failure contributes to improving efficiency.

                                              Students have acquired the skills to apply the learned concepts, models and methods to basic microeconomic
Methodological skills                         issues.
                                              Introducing welfare economic questions, students can already derive the first scientifically based judgments about
Personal and social skills                    market failures and classify them into a social, historical and ethical framework.

                                            Students are able to describe short- and long-term macroeconomic developments in the economy and to analyse
                                            them using models. Students will be able to visualize the generation of money, the monetary value and the financial

                                            know important currency-theoretical connections and can explain monetary policy decisions.

                                            Students have acquired the skills to apply the learned concepts, models and methods to basic macroeconomic
Methodological skills                       issues. In doing so, they are able to apply the necessary abstractions and simplifications to the essential factors and
                                            to argue in causal chains.
                                           Students can recognize the complexity of macroeconomic contexts and compare the sometimes contradictory
Personal and social skills                 explanations. Students understand the dependence of economic explanations on historical and cultural conditions.

                                            In this module, students learn about the dependencies of a company on macroeconomic development. They
                                            understand how a company is influenced by economic cycles or monetary policy decisions and what reactions to

                                            using models and their assumptions in macroeconomics

                                             After attending the module event, students have basic factual knowledge and critical understanding of the learned
                                             legal subjects. They know the most important rules and can apply them to selected practical situations. You are able
Professional Expertise                       to legally analyse the problems of such cases, to discuss them critically and to provide a justifiable solution.

                                             The students can work on case designs analytically critical as well as method-based. They know teaching and
Methodological skills                        learning methods using digital media and can use them successfully, especially for self-study purposes.

                                             For group work (case study) students are able to work effectively in a working group. You are capable of applying
Personal and social skills                   and maintaining adequate time management for audits.

                                             Students have the ability to identify potential legal problems in the workplace at an early stage. They can either
                                             design them themselves legally or at least give them problem-oriented to a competent third party (e.g. lawyer, legal
