Electives offered by the Business Administration Department
- The Business Administration department offers some Bachelor’s level courses that are not a mandatory part of a Bachelor’s programme in Business Administration and can be taken as electives such as 'Gender in Organisations', 'Managing Innovation', 'Principals of Consumer Behaviour', 'International Entrepreneurship', ‘Introduction to Big Data analysis with Implications to International Business Issues’. For the complete list of available courses, see the study guide.
- If you are participating in the Business Economics Bachelor’s specialisation, you can include courses that are part of the Dutch-taught Bedrijfskunde specialisation and the Business Administration specialisation, but which are not included in the Business Economics specialisation (e.g. Intervention Methodology or Knowledge in Organisations) as electives. Of course, this also works the other way around. For instance, you can include the English-taught courses Financial Accounting and Reporting or Accounting for Performance Management from the Business Economics Bachelor’s specialisation as electives in the Business Administration Bachelor’s specialisation.
- Students of the specialisations Business Administration, Bedrijfskunde and Business Economics, are not permitted to take courses from the first-year of the Dutch-taught Bedrijfskunde curriculum or the English-taught Bachelor’s specialisation International Business Administration (e.g. cross-cultural management and communication, Organisational Culture and Communication, International Management). The exception however is the IBA course Leadership in Organisations. It is permitted to take this course as an elective.
