A couple of "additional ethic courses" aren't offered, but all the hard core business subjects are taught in the context of the sustainable economic management.

          The students of the degree program Business Administration are supposed to deal with the questions of the economical, ecological and the central sustainability in every semester and are qualified practically for their future tasks in the business world.
