Business, Retail and Languages.

The School of Business and Management offers an extensive English-taught curriculum and attracts high numbers of exchange students from its many European partner institutions. The added value of an international experience cannot be underestimated. Since courses are taught in English, we require the students to have a good command of the English language (B2 level is advised).

This international curriculum is open for business, retail and language students and is offered twice a year. The programme includes a wide range of subjects such as finance, strategy and entrepreneurship, law, marketing, languages (English, French, German and Spanish), and cross-cultural topics.
