In theory, skopos theory belongs to functional translation theory, and translation must pay attention to skopos, so its translation strategies and methods should be changed with the purpose of the original text. Under this condition, Business German, as a compulsory course for German majors in universities, its business nature makes students not only master literal translation skills, but also ensure whether the translated text information is consistent with the original purpose. Therefore, the introduction of Skopos Theory in the teaching of this course is very important. This paper will analyze the current situation of Business German and explain the importance of the combination of Business German and teleology.
