Co-operative Bachelor's degree programmes

At HSBA, you can study Business Administration with numerous specialisations or with an international focus as in our degree programme International Management. Would you rather combine business administration with the topic of digitalisation? Then you can choose our Business Informatics degree programme. Or are you mainly interested in logistics?

For those who already work in the insurance industry and would like to further develop their skills in this area, we also offer a part-time degree programme in Insurance Management.

Frequently asked questions about the Bachelor's programme at HSBA

Can I apply for a study place directly with HSBA?

No. Students can only study at HSBA if they have concluded a contract of study with a training company. To apply with a company is always the first step in the application process.

What are the options of studying abroad?

About 30% of HSBA's Bachelor students spend time abroad during their studies (mostly short-stay at Summer Schools or as an exchange student with one of our partner universities). In the third year of studies of the dual programmes, students can go on an international study trip. Furthermore, HSBA attaches great importance to the international character of its content, offering a wide range of seminars held in English. Fore more information, please see here.

When should I start with my application?

Anyone interested in taking a dual Bachelor programme should normally start looking for a training company at least one year before they intend to start their studies. The application to the company should include all the usual documents, such as school and examination qualifications and CV. The company then sends the study contract together with the necessary documents to HSBA, which checks whether the criteria for admission are fulfilled, and if so accepts the applicant.
