The BA (Hons) in Business is a Bachelor programme that combines intense character and skill development within the context of an accredited three-year business degree. Students study the core aspects of business while developing five core skills and working on their mindset and personality. With this internationally recognised degree, students can go on to pursue Master studies, run family companies, start their own businesses, or get a competitive edge on the international job market.

Academic Degree Programme

Each subject is taught in a series of interactive seminars led by experienced lecturers who are experts in their chosen academic field and who have extensive professional experience.

In small classes of maximum 15–20, students work on case studies, examine real company profiles, and learn how to apply academic theories to real-life business scenarios.

Customised Education

As part of their degree studies, students are exposed to customised educational dimensions that facilitate them in developing their character and skill. Experiential learning at the College, in companies and in interactive sessions with experts are used to develop the five core skills of empathetic exchange, strategic thinking, communication, grit/passion and time management.

Individual character issues (such as procrastination, perfectionism, lack of self-confidence or focus) that may hamper skill development are worked on through individualised mentoring and coaching. “CEO Shadowing” and “Parent Swap Scheme” company placements can be undertaken as top-up elements to the degree studies.
