Business Administration

The ongoing globalization of the economy means that international markets are in a state of continual flux. In the long term, this active world economy requires highly qualified economic experts and managers who will use their foresight to work towards a stable future.

The aim of the degree programme is to teach students the application-oriented aspects of business administration using academic knowledge as a basis. As well as imparting expert knowledge, we will also teach social and methodical competences and key qualifications, which contribute to personal development and leadership ability. The degree programme offers a good balance of theoretical and practical education. It will equip students with the skills and competences they need in order to apply their business administration expertise, a broad knowledge and understanding of the field, and more in-depth knowledge for certain topics. Using their new knowledge and skills, students will be able to work independently to solve problems, undertake management tasks in the fields of business and administration, and gain employment at a company or on a freelance basis.
