The Bachelor of Science in Business Education is primarily aimed at qualifying the students for the consecutive Master of Education in Business Education, which allows them to become teachers in vocational schools (the entry to the preparatory school traineeship requires 52 weeks of professional training altogether). Students with a degree cum laude who decide against a career as a teacher and want to further qualify in the field of Business Administration can join the respective Master of Science after their Bachelor graduation.
However, the Bachelor program also qualifies directly for a position in the "normal" business world: the program comprises modules in Didactics and Business Education which support competences needed in the planning of in-company trainings and the processes of knowledge transfer and management, e.g. in human resource planning and development. Moreover, the combination of business and education contents prepares students for a profession in the management of educational institutions. In addition, depending on the chosen subject focus, graduates regularly (and successfully) apply for all kinds of commercial jobs in various industries und thus fill positions students of Business Administration usually strive for.
