are an interdisciplinary space of knowledge which provides an opportunity to know not only individual business management functions (marketing, accounting, finances, etc.) but rather the business company as the whole. For this reason, the graduate from this programme can become a link connecting the professionals of individual fields, understanding the specifics of each one of them and able to use the knowledge of different disciplines for the achievement of the common goal.
When studying various subjects of Business and Entrepreneurship
, I had more than one opportunity to try myself in various hypothetical situations of business without experiencing the actual risk. This allowed me to gain valuable experience. Due to programme of Business and Entrepreneurship
I know where to look for the ways to find the right solution for my business.
