The Business School Pforzheim offers 13 Business Administration degree programs and a degree program in Business Law. Our offer is characterised by the combination of science and practice. Bachelor studies at Business School Pforzheim are based on the Pforzheim Model. This is characterised by a 70:30 proportion of course content.
Approximately 70% of the courses are identical in all business programs, this applies especially to general business administration, economics, law and quantitative methods. 30% of the lecture time is reserved for teaching the contents of the specialisation, not evenly distributed over the entire study period, but concentrated in the higher semesters.
The Business Law program combines legal and business subjects - in a combination that is unique in Germany. Here, about 70% of the courses deal with legal basics. 30% of the lecture time is reserved for basic business studies. In the course of the program, the proportion of basic and advanced legal subjects as well as specialisation subjects continues to increase.
This model offers a broad and at the same time in-depth professional education that is clearly oriented towards the labour market. The broad basic education enables diverse careers even beyond the original specialisation in the degree program.
In the Bachelor's programs, the standard period of study is seven semesters. Students acquire the title Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) Business Administration or Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) Business Law.
