Understanding, explaining and shaping economic phenomena is the mission of the School of Business and Economics (SBE) at the University of Münster (WWU). In line with this mission, the core activities are in the areas of research, teaching and knowledge transfer. Research inspires and guides the education of students as well as young researchers as a basis for a successful career in academia or practice. In the sense of applied research oriented towards social issues, the school is committed to the transfer of knowledge into practice and society. In terms of content, the SBE combines the disciplines of business administration, economics and information systems.
