First hand impressions


The podcast "hochschulreif" supports students in their choice of studies. How does the study of economics (VWL) work? What is the difference between economics and business administration? What are the possible majors and when do you set your career course? And what exactly attracts Economics students to their studies? We talk to Professor Dr. Gernot Müller about studying in Tübingen, about current teaching and research focuses of economics in Tübingen and many other questions about the subject of economics / VWL.

Study choice test

Learn about the study programs of the University of Tübingen and find out which study program suits you best.

Is studying the best thing for me? Which study program suits me? Do I fulfill the requirements? What do you do in the study programs?

A self-test developed by Dr. Christian Manger from the School of Business and Economics in the field of economics can be found here:

The Self-Assessment of the University of Tübingen supports you with four independently usable modules in answering these questions. In the modules, you work on different tasks and questions of reflection and then receive individual feedback and further information.

Corporate video

The project was created on the initiative of students of the student's body at the school of Business and Economics. Marco Klapper and Josefine Koebe have intensively accompanied the project from idea to completion. Stephanie Drewes (screenwriter, editor & director) of the Stuttgart Media University and two students of media sciences, Andreas Bückle (camera, editing, technology) and Hanka Kehr (sound, technology) were responsible for the film's realization. Thomas Knoll from the business contact office of the school of business and economics was the project leader. The project was supported by Campus TV and the media department of the University of Tübingen as well as the Mercedes-Benz Stuttgart branch.

student representation

Nauklerstraße 47, 72074 Tübingen


The student body is a union made up of voluntary and socially committed students. Every year, students from the student body are elected to join the Faculty Council by means of free elections. The main responsibility of the union is to represent the interests of the students, especially by active participation within the committees (Faculty Council, Study Commission, Career Commission, and Examination Board). The student body also gives advice on questions concerning your studies, lends lecture notes, organises freshers’ events and other general info events.

The main objective of the student body is to improve communication between students and lecturers. In addition, it publishes the faculty magazine “Wort zum WiWi" as a forum for discussion.

Everyone is welcome to participate and promote the students’ interests!
