About our faculty

The Faculty of Management and Economics is committed to the ideal of unity between research and teaching and strives to meet high academic standards in both areas. The faculty consists of 27 chairs as well as numerous junior professorships and postdocs. It achieves excellent rankings, for example, according to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, we were ranked as the third most influential economics faculty in Germany. In teaching, we pursue an integrative approach that combines business administration and economics and is widely known as the “Bochum Model”. In the Bachelor’s degree we offer an undergraduate economics programme (BSc Management and Economics), while in the Master’s degree we offer specialised Master’s programmes (MSc Finance, Accounting, Auditing, Controlling and Taxation (FAACT), MSc Econometrics, MSc Economic Policy Consulting, MSc Sales Management) in addition to the MSc Management and Economics.

In principle, you can choose all modules offered by the Faculty of Business and Economics. However, please make sure that you choose the modules that match your previous knowledge. As a rule a module registration is not necessary and you can simply attend them. Only a few modules require prior registration due to limited capacity (e.g. seminars). If you have found a course you would like to take, it is advisable to check the page of the chair offering the course to see whether advance registration with the chair, e.g. via e-mail, is required. 

All Bachelor and Master modules offered by the Faculty of Economic Sciences can be found in the course description. The module handbooks contain a detailed description of the module, the corresponding workload and the prerequisites that must be met before choosing the module.
The modules offered in the current semester can be found in the timetables. An overview of the modules currently offered in English can be found here.

At the Faculty of Business and Economics, the examination period usually begins in the last week of the semester and ends 2 to 3 weeks later. The period for registering for and deregistering from examinations usually begins 6 to 8 weeks after the start of the semester. The exact date will be announced by the Examinations Office.
You must register for and deregister from examinations via the faculty’s FlexNow examination administration system. This requires a card reader, your student ID and a six-digit PIN. If the registration/deregistration was successful, you will receive an email to your RUB email address. Please check whether you have received the registration/deregistration confirmation and keep it until the end of the examination period. Students who do not have a card reader are recommended to use one of the PC workstations in building GD (room GD 02/224 & GD 03/208).
Detailed instructions on how to register for and deregister from exams can be found here.

Living in Bochum

Bochum is a lively university city with 370,000 inhabitants and is located in the heart of the Ruhr region. With five million inhabitants, the Ruhr region is one of the largest economic regions in Europe. Once dominated by coal mining, the service and education sectors have long since taken hold.

Bochum has many opportunities for green recreation in parks or at Lake Kemnader, for example. The numerous cycle paths between the cities of the Ruhr area offer the possibility to explore the Ruhr area by bike. There is the Bochum Bermuda3Eck, the largest pub district in the Ruhr area, with more than 75 pubs, bars and restaurants. For more information about Bochum and the Metropole Ruhr, please contact the International Office.

For those interested in culture and science, the Schauspielhaus Bochum and the German Mining Museum (one of the most important mining museums in the world) are definitely worth a visit. The theatres in Bochum provide the setting for evening-length entertainment. You can find a comprehensive overview of the cultural offerings of the Ruhr-Universität and the city of Bochum here.

Hochschulsport Bochum offers more than 150 sports courses in around 50 different sports. You can find more information about the courses and the registration system on the Hochschulsport Bochum homepage. For those who prefer to watch rather than participate, the Ruhr region also offers excellent opportunities. It is home to many traditional German football clubs such as VfL Bochum, Borussia Dortmund, Schalke 04, MSV Duisburg and Rot-Weiß Essen.
