Programme overview

The Bachelor's online study programme in Business Administration offers you a sound education in economics that conveys theoretical principles in a practical manner, and addresses current trends with an international focus. When compiling the curriculum, great importance was attached to promoting your soft skills through modules such as Collaborative Work or Intercultural and Ethical Decision-Making, in addition to ensuring the subject’s professional foundation. Another special feature of the online study programme in Business Administration is the extensive range of compulsory electives, in which you can focus on industry-specific subjects of your choice, deepen your knowledge of IT-technical areas or take a foreign language. All modules are offered exclusively in English to prepare you for an international career.

Our Bachelor's study programme is modular, i.e. you study based on subject areas that are divided into so-called modules. After successfully completing the modules, you will be credited with ECTS points (European Credit Transfer System), which document your achievements. These ECTS points are internationally comparable and, of course, recognised.

As a central driver of growth and innovation, you are committed to the future-oriented alignment of your organisation.
