  • Theses
    The online theses (since 2002) from Economics and Busniness are available to UG students and staff only (via UWP).
  • Digital sources
    The UG network allows online access to several files. A selection of important files for Economics and Business Administration can be found in the Library Guide Economics and Business.
Compulsory literature

The compulsory and recommended course literature is purchased based on the information in Ocasys. Therefore, teachers do do not need to submit a separate request for these.

For questions about Ocasys, please contact your secretariat or the Ocasys coordinator.


The UB is very reluctant to purchase e-textbooks for use in education. The prices of e-textbooks are very high compared to other e-books and printed books and usage options are limited. In addition, it is often only suitable for a small group and for a limited duration.

Collection specialists provide support in finding readily usable alternatives to e-books available in our collections or in open access. Would you like to prescribe an e-book for your class? Please contact one of the collection specialists. They can inform you about the possibilities.
