BSc Business Administration (International Management)

International management knowledge and skills for a global workplace.

The Business Administration (International Management) programme will enable you to understand how firms become and remain competitive in the dynamic international landscape.

You will gain a foundation in business administration and become proficient in management theories and techniques pertinent to managing a company and people in the multicultural business environment.

The practical focus of the programme – including live projects, business simulations, case studies – will deepen your appreciation of why, and how, the local adaptation of business and management concepts developed elsewhere is crucial.

You will develop intercultural and interpersonal communication skills that will ensure you are able to consider issues of diversity and manage successfully in global business contexts.

The BSc International Management programme is taught entirely in English.

I chose to study at the FHNW because the study programme provides a good preparation for an international career.
