The admission process and the highly focused study schedule present sophisticated challenges in terms of students’ performance and their commitment. 33 chairs at WHU, more than 100 external lecturers, and a service-oriented administration ensure excellent support of all students throughout their time at WHU.

Ethical questions concerning individual behavior, the influence of emotions on the human decision-making process, basic philosophical questions of the present, conflict behavior, learning strategies and methods, as well as important historical events and important cultural / technological developments are addressed and discussed within these courses. All in all, this module is designed to enable students to think outside the economic box.
