Socioeconomics degree program with courses in jurisprudence
The socioeconomics degree program with courses in jurisprudence is primarily aimed at prospective students who later want to work in the private and public sectors. Here, a sound legal knowledge as well as a proximity to consumption and work is of crucial importance.
The study program is completed with a “Bachelor of Arts” and offers courses on financial services/consumer protection, among other things. Students who choose these courses prepare themselves for a future career in the financial sector. Jobs in bank branches and with Internet providers are particularly suitable where mass customer business is involved and consumer law as well as knowledge of customers and retail finance products are the focus. The training is also aimed at prospective students who wish to acquire the necessary qualifications in the field of financial consulting and brokerage. Other fields of work arise in financial consulting for consumer associations as well as in debt counseling, where knowledge of banking law, insolvency regulations, loan collateral and investment law is required. The ability to develop customer profiles and to understand business fundamentals of financial services is essential in practice and is sharpened by the course of study.
A strong international orientation lays the foundation for incorporating further developments coming primarily from Brussels. The internships arranged are intended to establish early contact with later professional practice. Second-chance students from these fields will find here a qualifying further education with greater chances for advancement.
The courses also provide the foundations for postgraduate master's degree courses in the economic fields of finance, social finance, and also for legal master's degree courses in the fields of European law and financial services law.
