Mix & match: How do I compile my own program of study?

Here at the Faculty of Business, Economics and Informatics, you have the option of taking both your major program and minor program at the Faculty or supplementing your studies with programs offered by other faculties. It is important to bear the following points in mind:

Selecting a degree program

You always start by selecting the degree program at a faculty. This defines the title that you will receive when you complete your studies. At our Faculty, you can obtain a degree in the following programs:

  • Bachelor of Arts UZH in Business and Economics
  • Bachelor of Science UZH in Informatics
  • Master of Arts UZH in Business and Economics
  • Master of Science UZH in Informatics
  • Master of Science UZH ETH in Quantitative Finance
  • Doctorate in Business and Economics
  • Doctorate in Informatics
  • Doctorate in Neuroeconomics

Selecting a major and minor study program

You select your major and minor study program within your chosen degree program.

While you must always select a major program at the faculty offering your degree program, in some cases you have the option of selecting a minor program at a different faculty.

Options available to minor study program students from other faculties

The Faculty of Business, Economics and Informatics also offers minor study programs to students from other faculties. These students enroll in a degree program at the faculty offering their major program (for example, Bachelor of Arts in Social Sciences at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences or Master of Science at the Faculty of Science), then select one of our minor study programs.
