Master Mathematics

Mathematics Master students can attend and take exams in certain Economics Master lectures and/or modules within the framework of the exchange agreement between the two departments. Access to Economics modules is possible only as long as the export module capacity has not been exceeded.


In order to be able to take part in the examinations of the Department of Economics and so as to be able to register for individual exams on BASIS yourself, a one-time registration is initially required.

The registration process is digitized and can be applied for via this website. Please do not send us any documents by mail unless you are requested to do so separately (e.g. by email).

If you fail to apply for registration within the announced period, exam registration and participation within the 1st exam period will not be possible. A subsequent registration date will be offered before the 2nd examination period. The exact date can be found in the schedule (see Dates)

Registration for Examinations

In each module, two final examinations are offered every semester (usually at the end of the respective semester and shortly before the beginning of the following semester). Both examination dates can be taken independently.

Students need to register for module examinations. Registration and withdrawal may be effected online in BASIS at any time during the published registration and withdrawal period. Registration is impossible or invalid if a prerequisite for participation is not fulfilled. After having effected a registration in BASIS, print out the pdf file "Info über angemeldete Prüfung" and check the status of the registered exam(s). This is the only way you can prove to the Examination Office that you have indeed effected a registration.
If exam registration cannot be effected by electronic means, all students must contact the Economics Examination Office within the registration deadline.

Registration periods are limitation periods and therefore subsequent registration is not possible after the deadline has run out.

Students enrolled in the Master Program Mathematics may contribute up to 24 credit points of the export modules in Economics to the 120 credit points of their Master Program Mathematics. The modules provided by the Master Program Economics include four basic modules which are offered every winter semester, as well as several advanced modules offered in the winter and/or summer semester. Advanced modules are categorized into the following five fields of study:

  • Microeconomic Theory,
  • Macroeconomics & Public Economics,
  • Management & Applied Microeconomics,
  • Financial Economics,
  • Econometrics & Statistics.

The advanced modules may only be attended in case the respective requirements are met. The number of modules offered in each of the five fields of study per semester may vary. At the beginning of each semester, the available advanced modules can be found online in the electronic course catalogue. It is possible to take basic modules without attending a corresponding advanced module thereafter.

Basic Modules

Basic modules comprise 7.5 credit points and are offered every winter semester. The following basic modules may be attended. Note that the module Mathematics for Economists is not open for students of the Master Program Mathematics. A re-sit may be taken exclusively in the four basic modules to improve a previously acquired passing grade. This attempt to improve the grade is only allowed in case the first exam was taken and passed during the first examination period of a semester and in case the re-sit will be taken and passed in the second examination period of the very same semester. Thereafter, taking a further resit to improve the previously acquired passing grade is not possible. Note that the PhD versions of the Basic Modules are not part of the exchange agreement.
