Graduation - and now?

Do you have questions about the study programme in business chemistry? Here you will find some questions and answers for prospective students and students of business chemistry.

Your question remains unanswered? Then please feel free to reach out to the contacts for the study programme in business chemistry. 

After successful completion of the B.Sc. Business Chemistry, students can apply for one of the following Master's programmes, among others:

  • M.Sc. Business Chemistry
  • M.Sc. Chemistry
  • M.Sc. Business Administration (requires the additional attendance of the module BS02: Statistical Methods II)

The M.Sc. program in business chemistry has no capacity restrictions. However, as part of the application process for admission to the M.Sc. program in business chemistry, all applicants must have their suitability for the program determined - including students who have completed a bachelor's program in business chemistry at HHU. 

The application for the master's program in business chemistry takes place via the central HHU application portal. Applications submitted there will be reviewed by the selection committee. The application deadline for the suitability determination for the summer semester 2022 is 15 March  2022.

The most recent version of the aptitude assessment regulations published here is binding for the aptitude assessment. 

As soon as the suitability has been determined, the HHU Student and Examination Administration (SPV) will send out a notice of admission. With this admission notice, enrollment in the program must be actively applied for at the SPV.
Students who have already completed their bachelor's degree at HHU do not have to re-enroll. However, these individuals must apply to the SPV for a change of degree program. In this case, it should be noted that the semester re-registration must only take place for the 8th bachelor's semester.

The competences acquired in the master's programme qualify students for a doctorate in the field of chemistry or in the field of economics. They also open up interesting professional fields at the interface of chemistry and economics in chemistry-related industries.

Graduates of the business chemistry programme combine both business administration and chemical expertise and are thus well suited for interface positions in companies. In addition to the key qualifications and skills that "pure" business economists and "pure" chemists possess, they develop the competence of transfer thinking, coordination and being able to look beyond their own field.

Graduates of the business chemistry programme are thus in great demand both in the business administration field and in the chemical environment. Potential fields of work in the chemical industry and chemical-related sectors include operational organisation, controlling, purchasing, sales, research & development or (business) consulting.

In addition, the degree programme also qualifies students for an academic career in economics or chemistry, as well as for jobs in the public sector, for example in environmental protection or consumer protection.
