The Program at a glance
The Business & Management degree program is designed to provide understanding and knowledge of organisations’ management within an international and dynamic context. Students will achieve knowledge about the functional areas of business, the behavior of organizations, as well as their decision-making processes.
Our program provides students with quantitative and analytical knowledge related to the understanding of the economic, social, political and legal environments in which business decisions are made. Main topics and subjects include accounting and finance, marketing, strategy, economics, and organizational behavior. In addition, students will achieve an understanding of the ethical and global issues confronting business together, as well as leadership and team-building skills through the analysis of business cases and other experiential exercises. The international focus of the degree aims at emphasizing the increasingly global dimensions of business and management practices.
Classes are provided throughout a block structure which allow the same course to be taught intensively within two-three weeks periods with examinations at the end of each block. This structure allows the involvement of an international faculty including visiting professors and business professionals.

Our partners’ international programs are accredited by AACSB and EFMD/EPAS.
