Bachelor in Business Administration
The Bachelor in Business Administration is an interdisciplinary programme providing theoretical and applied insights into a wide range of business areas. The programme also offers the option of a semester abroad and/or supervised work experience.
During Part One, supported by modules in applied subjects, students gain a broad and systematic foundation in business administration, economics, law and sociology. Part Two offers students a wide range of streamed modules that can be combined to suit different interests and goals. The focus here is on innovative and interdisciplinary modules, streamed electives taught in English and key qualifications to promote the soft skills needed in discussion and debate, team work and leadership. Case studies, projects, and a strategic business game promote independent analysis and solution-oriented approaches. In Part Two of the programme, contacts to partner Universities and companies encourage supervised work experience or a study semester abroad.
