Faculty VII Economics and Management
- © TU Berlin/ Dahl
TU Berlin teaching and research in the fields of economics and management focus strongly on the acquisition of practical and technology-oriented entrepreneurial and management skills. Business management, economics, commercial law, and technology and management are the core focus of academic learning at Faculty VII. Important research topics at our Faculty include innovation research, logistics, infrastructure and network economics and health. Further scientific projects include empirical economic research and economic policy, organization and corporate management, as well as strategic controlling and patent management.
Our research activities profit greatly from close cooperation with industry. The individual Faculty chairs independently participate in various national and international research networks in important specialist areas. These include competitive strategies in the pharmaceutical and telecommunication industries, the development of Berlin-Brandenburg into a strong logistics region, hospital logistics and chain of command issues within European stock markets, and developing commercial-law-oriented risk management systems.
Faculty VII’s excellent “Business Administration and Engineering” degree course was first introduced in 1926 by our predecessor university, the “Technische Hochschule Berlin”. Today, it remains one of the most prestigious degree courses of its kind in Germany. By combining the fields of economics and jurisprudence with those of the engineering sciences, our graduates are well-rounded young professionals with great prospects for success in both national and international job markets. Our graduates have excellent career opportunities.
The “Center of Knowledge Interchange” (CKI) is an academic support institute that is housed in our Faculty. CKI applies appropriate learning methods in order to impart the pivotal skills and key knowledge our students need, e.g. good communication, integration and planning skills, gaining an international perspective and developing entrepreneurial thinking. Internships and dissertations give students the opportunity to acquire practical work experience at associated companies, as well as to make concrete contacts that will help them in their future careers.
Faculty VII cooperates closely with TU Berlin’s “Center for
Entrepreneurship”, whose mission is to impart basic scientific
knowledge to future entrepreneurs, and to integrate the acquisition of
such skills into university curricula.
Beyond the prestigious Bachelor and Master level courses “Business Administration and Engineering”, Faculty VII also offers the Bachelor program “Eco-nomics”, in addition to the Master’s degree courses “Industrial and Networks Economics”, and “Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship”, a dual degree program carried out in association with the University of Twente in the Netherlands.
