What will you learn?

Business Administration offers you a broad range of topics, with consideration not only for international management, but also for psychology, sociology, communication, economics, and law. For example, there is ample consideration given to the role of social and cultural aspects within organisations. After all, conducting good business is a job involving extensive human interaction. You will look at the interaction between all stakeholders involved, such as managers, employees, shareholders and clients; a framework that is even more complex and interesting within international interactions.
