More information 


Program description:
The Business Development MA programme focuses on issues like business innovation and business financing, corporate strategies, management, operative challenges of running a business, socio-economic forecast, production and process management etc. After finishing their studies graduates will be able to establish, run and develop their own business or lead others as a manager in any business company. Present day tendencies show that SMEs and startups are more and more important factors in global economy affecting not only employment but incomes and GDP, too. These organizations can be the answers for challenges of youth unemployment, social problems and different types of innovation issues. Besides the entrepreneur mind, the entrepreneur mentality and attitude are needed by major corporations, even multinational companies, thanks to the intrapreneurship as a new trend. In this sense the size of company is irrelevant, business development is a „neverending story”, a standard expectation and the only way to be successful in the market.
