The Business Administration and Sociology programme provides you with an understanding of how companies and other organisations are organised, of their core business and of how their activities are interlinked with the surrounding society – in an ever more globalised world.
Besides developing an understanding of the economic and organisational processes in an organisation, you acquire skills that can be used when designing research projects, collecting data and analysing organisations.
The programme is structured within these main areas:
- Business Administration, which covers economic activity in society and organisations. You learn about various aspects of organisations and their broader economic context.
- Sociology, where you are introduced to sociological theories and analytical tools that can be used to understand why people act as they do and why society and organisations are stable or in transition. You also gain insight into the stability of society and its institutions as well as into occurring changes – from an economic and business perspective.
- Methods, where you acquire the skills you need to use tools such as surveys, statistics, interviews, focus group interviews, participant observation, databases and computer simulated ‘what-if’ analyses.
- Application, where you learn how to apply theoretical, analytical and methodical knowledge in economic and organisational contexts.
For the fifth semester you can choose a number of electives, or you can participate in an exchange or internship programme.
International students are an integral part of this study programme. The aim is to train graduates intending to work in the global network society – since there is an increasing demand for people with these skills. Therefore, the focus is on creating an international learning environment on the basis of the student composition, the curriculum, the syllabus, and the international faculty involved in teaching the programme.
Teaching varies between lectures and classroom instruction. Students are encouraged to participate in class discussions.
