The two-year study plan covers the study and integration of the above subjects with particular attention to the establishment, development and internationalisation of businesses, also through the discussion of business case studies, the drafting of business plans, and lectures by managers and entrepreneurs.Students have the option to perform an internship at a business or institution with a view to future professional activities.
