Society needs people with specialist knowledge in business and economics, trained in critical and independent thinking, who can use this to develop businesses and organisations in a sustainable direction. The Bachelor's Programme in Business and Economics meets these demands. High quality and social relevance are keywords for the programme and the students will learn to develop their analytical skills, the ability to reverse perspectives and to seek out new knowledge. They learn the classical theoretical foundations while applying their acquired knowledge in real-life situations.
