Program description

Business Management

We are known for our professionalism, flexibility as well as friendly and approachable lecturers. Whether you have previous business studies or a degree, or fresh work experience from the business field, we also have a possibility to integrate those skills into your BBA degree to speed up your studies.

In and around our geographical area, there are well-known and successful international companies. For example, the boat industry is globally known for the world-class yachts, and for example Rolls Royce also has manufacturing in Kokkola! That in mind, the focus of the BBA programme at Centria is entrepreneurship and international business. Throughout the studies students examine the growth of business enterprises from a business idea to a fully operational company in the international market.

The BBA studies at Centria start by laying a firm foundation on the basics of business: business planning, marketing, accounting, economics, management, intercultural competences and languages. During the second year, you can proceed to more advanced professional studies, but you will also have a chance to spend half a year in a well-reputable and international partnership university of Centria. You can choose from over 20 business universities around the world and apply for the ones that suit you best. Or, if you want to take it further, you have a possibility to integrate your studies at Centria with a business degree in our specific university partners in France and China by spending one year in one of those universities. You will receive two international degrees in one program, which is a real opportunity for you!

After the second year, and the potential exchange period, in the third year you will study further professional business courses at Centria – CRM, business law, international marketing, ERP, international economics, organizational development and global business studies – just to mention a few.

You will end the programme by producing a professional thesis with one of our skilled and experienced supervisors. An important part of the programme is work placement in a real company or other organization – either in Finland or abroad, again depending on your own interests and motivation. Remember that you have a full chance to do the work placement during your studies, for example in periodical breaks – we are flexible. We can even combine several working periods during your studies with your work experience gained before your BBA program studies at Centria UAS!
