Business education is ideally suited to comprehensively examine learning and teaching at universities: On the one hand, it addresses the micro-level of teaching and learning processes with the pedagogical-didactic perspective. On the other hand, models of curriculum research help to understand and design the meso-level of higher education, e.g. study programmes and modules. Finally, concepts of organisational theory make it possible to take a differentiated look at the framework conditions of educational processes at universities. In addition to the institutional characteristics of higher education institutions, this naturally also includes the connection systems and the transitions into and out of higher education institutions.
