The importance of business studies and economics can clearly be seen when considering some of the challenges facing Germany and Europe as industrial powers; the importance of globalisation and networked production, ecologically compatible and sustainable economic development, innovations and the use of multimedia as well as international financial markets. To meet these challenges, we need decision makers capable of understanding the macro- and microeconomic principles of such issues. Consequently, the faculty's potential in the fields of teaching, research and consultancy is of great significance for the economy and future development in the face of regional and international competition.
These modern advances are reflected in the expansion of the faculty and its increasing dedication to subjects with an international focus. In this respect, we constantly strive to create a balance between internationalisation and regionalisation.
Furthermore, the Faculty's increasing recognition as an authority in business and economics provides an invaluable complement to the University's main emphasis in the fields of natural and engineering sciences. The introduction of co-operation management in the Faculty ensures that innovative processes are pursued from their initial concept right up to their implementation. This process is achieved through innovation networks, co-operative research projects, applied practical projects as well as discussion days, and is supported by business start-up initiatives.
The faculty places particular emphasis on enhancing the teaching skills of its staff and providing support to our new generation of business and economic researchers. In future, further attention will be paid to changing trends in education when planning courses and lectures. In doing so, the high standards will be continually improved upon, enabling both a greater degree of specialisation and a greater variety of courses. This, for instance, is illustrated by our new masters programmes. The specialist knowledge and inter-social skills acquired by our graduates are pivotal for the success of enterprises, stretching from a regional level within Bremen, across Germany through Europe to an international scale.
The Faculty of Business Studies & Economics recognises that the expertise developed here can help shape the global economy and economic development of enterprises well in the future, and has taken up the challenge.
