Study Details

How do I find and qualify suitable personnel? What marketing strategy can I use to reach my customers? How can I keep an eye on my costs and invest and grow at the same time? And how do I make my company fit for a sustainable future? Studying business administration offers you numerous entry opportunities and huge career prospects in your company.
Do you want to set up your own company and become a star of the start-up scene? To do this, you not only need to develop cool products or services, but also understand how to establish a company on the market and manage it profitably. During your studies, you will learn all the important business management skills and how to implement them in your company using various methods. As a future manager, it is important that you make well-founded and sustainable business decisions. This is why the degree programme teaches a high proportion of management skills. And not just in theory, but also in practice, for example by applying them in an international practical project of your choice. In the second part of the course, you can also work more towards your career goal and specialise in a particular field.

Studying at Campus Bochum

Modern, internationally orientated and surrounded by greenery - that's Bochum University of Applied Sciences. We have over 8,200 students studying at two different locations: the main campus in Bochum and the satellite campus in Heiligenhaus (CVH).
With our six faculties and more than 58 degree programmes, we attach great importance to encounters at eye level, supportive cooperation, personal support and strong practical relevance. There are numerous student working and research groups in which students from different degree programmes come together to learn. Topics such as Sustainable Bochum University, learning and working in projects (problem-based learning), Electric Mobility or climate change can be tackled here independently and closely supervised by lecturers. You can also obtain a doctoral degree here after completing a Master's degree.
The campus in Bochum is about 15 minutes by car or tram from the city centre, right next to the Ruhr University Bochum (RUB). All leisure activities for students there are also open to you: from university sports and the cultural café to the halls of residence. Bochum as a student city offers everything a student's heart desires: from art museum, theatre and concert hall to planetarium and mining museum to the party mile Bermudadreieck, city park and Kemnader See - take a look at Maps to see how green it is here!
