Bachelor in Business Administration at NHL Stenden

Program description

Business Administration is a 4-year bachelor programme created for natural leaders. Learn how to keep a company running smoothly, how businesses function, and how to improve them. You like to have a responsibility, and you want your part of the organisation to perform. If this is you, this programme might very well be the one for you.

This course prepares you for a senior management position. After graduation, you will be able to identify problems quickly and enjoy solving them effectively. It is an ideal all-round management programme focused on a company's internal organisation. By learning a broad skill set, you will be a valuable addition to any organisation.

This means that your career is not limited to one specific industry: you are competent across industries, enabling you to pursue careers across the board. ICT, for example, or purchasing, finance, facilities management, or administration.

If you are internationally orientated, you will enjoy our multi-campus concept. Called the 'Grand Tour', you can do part of this programme at one of the NHL Stenden campuses in South Africa, Bali, Thailand, or Qatar. In addition, our strong ties to the field allow you to gain real-life experience.

This study programme was previously offered as International Applied Business Administration.
