The current demand for competence orientation in teaching forces teachers to reconsider their instructional design and to adapt it to the new challenges of our time. Although competencies have already been defined in the new curriculum and the scholastic standards, many teachers are skeptical towards this topic. This is not only justified by the lack of time resources, but also by the missing acceptance of pupils. But above all, teachers often lack knowledge and skills to design a competence-based lesson. As a result, the question for this master thesis is how competence-based teaching can be established and which features characterize it. In a professional context, it is especially essential to possess skills that meet the demands of the complex and dynamic business world. For this reason, the purpose of this master thesis furthermore is to show how a competence-based business teaching can be designed and how this can be implemented on the basis of a specific topic. In the first step, the basics of competence-based teaching will be defined and its characteristics will be specified. Moreover, possibilities for implementation will be presented on the basis of the competence models of Feindt, Peterßen and the Federal Ministry of Education and Women. The subsequent chapter deals with competence-based business teaching and it describes how a concrete didactic design option might look like by using the new St. Galler Management-Model. By combining the different models, not only the competence development of learners can be supported, but an integral way of business education can be established as well. These findings are supported by the practical use of a specific example of business teaching.
