The programme runs for four consecutive semesters. It starts in the winter semester with courses covering a broad spectrum of topics that form the programme’s foundation in the fields of economics, agribusiness and mathematics, culminating in the fourth semester with the colloquium and thesis. Apart from the compulsory courses, there is a wide choice of electives in both the social and natural sciences. Students must choose at least two electives from both the social and natural sciences, and may also choose one elective outside of these fields. The programme’s basic structure is outlined below.
First (winter) semester: five compulsory courses; one elective.
Second (summer) semester: four compulsory courses - one is the excursion - and two electives. Third (winter) semester: two compulsory courses - one of which is either a research project or an internship - and four electives.
Fourth (final summer) semester: thesis and colloquium.

As from the winter semester of 2013/2014, no tuition fees will be charged. However, certain administration and other costs will be charged to students (up to ca. €114,50): see link below. Students are expected to pay for the compulsory excursion. The cost depends on many factors (e.g. destination, duration, mode of transport, etc.) and therefore no sum is mentioned here.
