In this part of their studies, students will acquire the essential knowledge and skills required in all areas of modern business and management. They will familiarize themselves with the political, economic and legal backdrop that influences and determines business activities, and they will develop skills identified as essential by employers: working in teams effectively, solving problems, developing critical thinking and, of course, communicating and presenting your ideas persuasively in multicultural and multilingual contexts.
