Bachelor of Science in Business and Economics, with a major in Business Administration, 180 Credits
Start date: August 20, 2018
The programme in Sustainable Enterprise Development has been created to fill the increasing need among both for-profit and not-forprofit organisations, for leaders who can initiate and manage change processes. The programme recruits students who are interested in the management of change and innovation, with a particular emphasis on environmental and social sustainability. It is designed to foster creativity and an entrepreneurial mind-set, so that as a graduate you are able to launch and manage new initiatives – or renew existing practices. During your studies you will interact with students from other cultures and be taught by an engaged and international team of faculty. You are expected to spend one semester abroad and to develop a personal portfolio that documents and highlights your personal development during the programme. After completing your studies you will be well-prepared for work in the private, non-profit and public sector – and for post-graduate study. The programme provides a solid foundation for a position in general management, but particularly equips you for work as a project leader, business developer or sustainability manager.
A bachelor's degree in business administration fulfills the prerequisites for further studies at the master's level. Here at Jönköping University, you can continue with:
