Broad business school

There is a substantial value that arises, for example, in the interaction between business
development, internationalisation, entrepreneurship and regulation on the one hand and political decisions, psychological approaches to consumer and organisational behaviour, cultural understanding, sustainability, laws, demography, etc., on the other. At some point, they will all impact on an organisation's ability to perform in any market and on its ability to develop strategies that will carry it successfully through any obstacle that derives from increasing globalisation.

School of Business and Social Sciences has recognised this development and sees a potential that has yet to be realised by the majority of business schools operating internationally.

The advantage of being a broad business school is that the school can offer a much broader view of the world to its students. As a result, the belief is that students will graduate from School of Business and Social Sciences mastering at least one discipline, having obtained experiences in cooperation with people from other fields as well as the ability to innovate and solve problems they have never met before by drawing on experiences from a broader set of skills.
