“No business is an island!” Companies and organizations are not isolated entities and must be seen in a wider context where employees, suppliers, customers, public authorities and citizens affect and are affected by business operations. This gets even more complex in a globalized economy with companies that have customers, suppliers, or distributors in different markets.
This Master's Programme in Business Studies explores these themes by combining theoretical classes with practical exercises based on the needs of local and international companies. Core courses focusing on corporate social responsibility (CSR) and management are combined with a student’s choice of specialisation (Accounting, Marketing or Strategic Human Resource Management).
By offering a modern understanding of business while allowing you to develop a unique thesis project, this programme prepares you for entering the dynamic international job market.
Why should you take this programme?
Choosing your own specialization offers you the chance to tailor the programme to your professional goals. Come into close contact with regional and international companies where you will carry out your course work and the Master’s thesis. International peers and lecturers will provide strong opportunities for you to build your network and prepare yourself for a future career in international business.
