Bachelor of Business Administration | International Business | full-time studies

What competence does the graduate have?

Studies in Business Administration (BBA) provide a comprehensive knowledge and skill-base for those wanting to build a career in global business. The degree studies cover all main aspects of international business operations including marketing and sales, accounting and finance, human resource management, international trade, digital business, project management, logistics, supply chain management, data analysis, business law, and economics. Graduates of a Bachelor of Business Administration programme have a wide range of business skills, good communication and intercultural skills as well as good language skills.

During their BBA studies students will learn to analyse business operations and markets and to develop new business processes. The students’ intercultural teamworking skills are developed with a variety of team-based learning approaches such as group work and assignments, research and development assignments with companies, and case studies.

A 30 ECTS internship in the business field is an important part of the studies allowing students to gain work experience and put their theoretical know-how to practise. International BBA programmes also often include a university exchange period abroad, which further prepares students for international careers. The internship and exchange studies enable students to start creating their international networks already during their studies. Students of BBA programmes come from diverse backgrounds all over the world allowing everyone to develop their intercultural skills even while studying on campus in Finland.

Universities of Applied Sciences provide BBA programmes in International Business, Business Service Solutions and Languages, Entrepreneurship and Team Leadership, Esports Business, European Business Administration, Digital International Business, International Business and Logistics, and Aviation Business.

What kind of learning methods are used in the education?

In some UASs it is also possible to study the degree fully online.
