Critical questions, the questioning of traditional thinking methods, to break into unaccustomed scientific thinking systems train the intellectual horizon and allow it, to understand things in their broader context and to react more flexible to new challenges. Besides the theoretical economic tools, the studies at Viadrina should also teach an interdisciplinary orientated knowledge that allows thinking in complex context. Therefore the economic studies include besides the language education also cultural- and jurisprudential studies in their program. This is supposed to create opportunities for the students to successfully realize executive functions.
