Joint degree / double degree programme

The Bachelor's programme in International Business Administration and Entrepreneurship is based on a broad, basic, academic education.

In this programme, you will receive training in the functional areas of business, allowing you to develop important managerial and entrepreneurial skills. These skills are necessary for success in a rapidly changing business environment. Special emphasis is placed on management and entrepreneurial orientation from an international perspective.

The knowledge of entrepreneurship in theory and practice, business processes, and management functions is complemented by further broader specific areas like accounting, finance, marketing, law, psychology, organisational behaviour, IT, and qualitative and quantitative research methods.

Furthermore, through a historical view of management as well as a study of corporate and business ethics issues, you will develop a historically embedded and society oriented perspective. This should sensitise you not only to take responsibility in your field of business but also for society and the environment as well.

As a student of International Business Administration & Entrepreneurship at Leuphana, you can also apply for a double degree programme at the University of Glasgow in Finance, Business Economics, or Business Management.
