English translation:Business Administration
Explanation:
According to Eichborn, Business Administration = Betriebswirtschaftslehre, and Economics = Wirtschaftslehre. My degree in Business Admninistration included the study of Economics, among other subject areas such as Finance, Management, Statistics, and Accounting, and required specialization in one of the areas. Depending on your context, if you are unsure as to exactly what field of study this degree is in, you might say, as one of the other answers suggested, business studies. It is common to hear of "business majors" or people with "business degrees." HTH, Beth
