With more than 2,700 students, the Faculty of Business Studies is the largest faculty of FH Aachen. For 50 years, our faculty has taught business sciences with a practice and value-oriented approach.

What distinguishes us:


We are committed to providing our students with a high-quality education in business and economics. 36 professors, 40 lecturers and 16 employees accompany the success of our students day after day. Our professors have several years of professional experience in various industries and integrate their diverse practical experience into the demanding teaching. On a regular basis experts from practice join for guest lectures. Our students also get to know companies on site during excursions.


In order to create the best possible start to their careers and to prepare students optimally for the diverse activities in the economy, the Faculty of Business Studies maintains close relationships with local and national companies. We promote the exchange between science and business in long-term and trusting partnerships. We are constantly expanding our network. Over a period of several years, we accompany our students on their way to graduating from university. Even after graduation, we would like to see how their career entry and career steps proceed. Therefore we maintain contact with our former students in our alumni network alfha.net.


To enable our students to work successfully and confidently in intercultural working environments, we encourage them to be mobile beyond national borders and to acquire intercultural skills. Every year, around 200 students spend a period of their studies at one of the faculty's more than 100 partner universities worldwide. Many of them take advantage of the opportunity to obtain a double degree. Each semester, numerous international guest students also study at the Faculty of Business Studies, so that internationality is actively lived.


It is important to us to personally accompany the study progress of our students. We are aware of our social responsibility and attach great importance to professional know-how, but also to values and personality when training the decision-makers of tomorrow. In addition to imparting expertise, our degree programmes promote social competencies, critical thinking and ethical awareness.
