The Chair of Business, Economics and Entrepreneurship Education is teaching, researching and scientifically consulting in various topics of vocational education and training (VET). In particular the chair focusses on the constitution and organisation of teaching and learning processes in different institutions of VET as well as in the adjacent fields of education.

In academics and teaching and therewith in the frame of the BA/MA programme “Business and Economics Education”, students are prepared for their future employment in the field of formal and non-formal VET. Graduates work predominantly as vocational school teachers (teaching especially Business, Economics & Administration), as in-company trainers and further education trainers, as education managers and consultants or in the field of vocational education research and policy.

Furthermore the chair engages in various research and development projects with regards to issues of:

  • VET, academic education and further education,
  • in-company education and training,
  • pilot project research and innovation research,
  • reformation of the VET system,
  • internationalisation of VET regarding networking and cooperating respectively regional development and
  • professionalisation of educational staff.

In all research and development activities the relations between individuals, different institutions and conditions of the education system are comprehensively considered. As a matter of principle, tools of qualitative social research are applied. Furthermore the chair is intensively cooperating in all research and development projects with stakeholders/ institutions dealing with practical VET issues.

Another focus of research and teaching emphasises analysing processes and structuring the foundation and establishment of business start-ups, but also promoting entrepreneurial competences by thinking and acting entrepreneurially among students and stakeholders of VET.
