Optimization is a quite young mathematical discipline with significant relevance in industry and economics. Thus there exists numerous applications in practise, e.g. within the range of Operation Research, physics or traffic systems. The chair of EDOM offers different lectures in this context, especially within the frame of the course of studies "Wirtschaftsmathematik".

The course of studies "Wirtschaftsmathematik"

Within three years, the Bachelor course of studies "Wirtschaftsmathematik" teaches fundamental knowledge and applications of mathematical techniques. Mathematic applications of economic questions are the center of attention. For the necessary background, basic courses both in business economics and political economics are provided. The detailed information about the Bachelor of Science in "Wirtschaftsmathematik" can be found Opens external link in new windowhere. People with a Bachelor in "Wirtschaftsmathematik" or in mathematics with specialization in economics who want to gain further knowledge in economics, "Wirtschaftsmathematik" should be the most attractive variant for the Master course of studies "Wirtschaftsmathematik". Within two years, additional knowledge necessary for independent and solely responsible scientific work is obtained.
