Students who wish to focus on acquiring specialist business skills are well advised to take the dual Business Administration (BSc) course. It combines practical business skills with systematic training within a company.
The focus in the first two years of study is on methodological competence, with the third year of study preparing students optimally for work in the respective industry through role-based specialisations. While 25% of the Business Administration (BSc) degree is taught in English, all the modules of the International Management (BSc) degree are taught in English.
The Business Informatics (BSc) dual course of studies also focuses on business administration. However, the traditional business aspects from the areas of financing, marketing and accountancy are combined with in-depth knowledge of business informatics. The focus here is on the design and programming of software, software engineering and project management.
The structure of the courses of study include a theory and a practical phase per term, in which the relevant specialized knowledge is applied in practice.

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.
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.
