Programme objectives

Our students acquire both a solid grounding and more extensive field expertise in Business Administration. They become equipped to work scientifically and think analytically. Thanks to their training in analytical skills our graduates are in a position to recognise problems in the work situation at an early stage, relate these to a conceptual framework and, applying business administration instruments developed on scientific principles, analyse them and recommend appropriate courses of action. Our students thus become adept at responding confidently to the ever-changing problems of professional life and resolving these with scientific methods.
