  • Note 2: One of the courses "Didactic Analysis and Planning of Teaching in Economics (Proseminar/Exercise)" and "Didactic Analysis, Planning and Implementation of Teaching in Economics with Practical School Studies (Proseminar/Exercise)" must be chosen.
  • Note 3: In the so-called free area (§ 22 para. 2 no. 3 letter f LPO I) 0 to 6 ECTS points are to be acquired at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich. For this purpose, students can choose from the courses offered in "Human Resource Management" and "General Business Administration in the free area". Please note that proseminars and advanced seminars may require an application to the respective chairs already in the previous semester. For more information on how to apply, please visit the website of the respective institute. As of the summer semester 2020, the course People and Organization can no longer be taken as a single exam for 3 ECTS, but only together with International Management in the combination exam "Leadership and International Management" for 6 ECTS.* For the courses "International Economic Relations" and "Money, Credit & Currency", the subject that was not taken as an elective module can be taken in the free area (see note 1).
  • Additional note: the exams for the courses "TbR", "Internal/External Accounting" and "Corporate Accounting/Financing" always take place at the same time! You can only write TbR + Int/Ext or TbR + U/F in combination, but not all three exams or Int/Ext + U/F in combination! Therefore, please stick to the scheduled study plan.
