Preparatory Courses

The Business School regularly offers preparatory courses for a number of essential modules in its degree programmes. These courses serve to refresh school material, for example for Mathematics, or as an introduction to certain programming languages, for example for Fundamentals of Programming, and are thus intended to facilitate the transition from school to university. The courses usually take place during the lecture-free period before the semester begins. The current planning status for the winter semester 2023/24 can be found on this page.

Preparatory Course in Mathematics

The preparatory course in Mathematics is aimed at first-year students in the Bachelor's degree programmes.

The contents of a preparatory course in Mathematics are usually:

  • Mathematical notation
  • Structure of the number system and set theory
  • Arithmetic laws
  • Roots and powers
  • Logarithm laws
  • Linear and quadratic equations
  • Sums and products

In the winter semester 2023/24 we are offering you the following online class:

1. Under the following link you can download a short introductory script to the mathematics lecture, in which selected prerequisite mathematical knowledge is repeated.


2. The contents of the script provided under point 1 are discussed in the video below. To access the video, you will need your university ID with password. Access is therefore only possible after enrolment.


We would also like to recommend you a textbook in case you would like to prepare further:
