Abstract: A competency framework is a matrix defining competency-oriented objectives for study programs. Simply put, it is designed to highlight what students are supposed to be able to do after they complete their studies. Competency frameworks form the basis for a differentiated assessment of students’ professional, methodological, and social competence and self-competence, which in turn contributes towards the continuous improvement of study programs. Based on input from internal stakeholders (Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning: educational perspective, heads of degree programs: academic/university perspective) a specific target structure was designed for eight Bachelor’s and eight Master’s degree programs in the discipline Business Studies and geared towards “typical” future work scenarios of graduates. A total of 39 guided interviews were conducted to validate these documents from external stakeholders (employers: entrepreneurial perspective, graduates: student perspective), after the competency frameworks were refined and finalized.
