About this program

BSc in Business Administration

Are you interested in management and doing business? Do you want to know more about the business strategies of multinational corporations that operate in various countries? If so, then Business Administration might be the right Bachelor's program for you. You will look at the ins and outs of how a business operates and how businesses deal with internal and external changes. You will learn to analyse what can be improved in corporate management and what effects markets have on businesses. This program is suited for people with a broad interest in conducting business and managing organisations.

What is this program about?

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.

From this perspective, companies need employees who can generate solutions. This is why you receive a thorough scientific education in Nijmegen. Analyzing business cases and generating solutions to problems and executing these in your future career are fundamental. You will regularly receive examples of practical situations during lectures and be presented with the question: what could be improved?
