The interdisciplinary Master's program in Theology and Economics is aimed at students who want to become active in Christian churches, charitable institutions or in social business enterprises. This includes, for example, administrative and management tasks in churches, Christian service companies, non-profit organisations and social business.
The Master's program builds on the Bachelor's programm in theology and economics and provides specialist skills and key qualifications.
Future decision-makers are to be enabled to analyse key areas of Christian theology and its ecclesiastical and social forms of organisation in a reflective manner and to develop strategies for action and concepts for companies against the background of Germany's market economy and social order, including its global interconnections.
This Master's program offers a theological qualification for the ecclesiastical and charitable labour market and the entire social business that goes beyond purely confessional theological education.
