Bachelor of Business Administration 

The Business Administration programme prepares you to solve complex business problems and develops your understanding of the challenges firms face in an interconnected and digitalized world. It is a well-rounded programme covering all management domains. In all stages, you will develop your entrepreneurial, cross-cultural and language skills.

About the programmme

The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration prepares you to find your way in an increasingly complex business environment. Globalisation has extended markets far beyond national borders and technology keeps global commerce moving 24 hours a day. Some products and services become increasingly complex, while others are becoming obsolete. Consumers demand prompt and customized service at the best price. Businesses require complex networks of distribution. These are just some examples of the issues you will address as a student in the Business Administration programme.

The three year programme is both hands-on and academic. It follows a practice-as-orientation and science-as-foundation approach. Business Administrators are managers who can take informed strategic decisions in response to economic challenges and opportunities.

The programme is taught in English and has a strong international focus. Our students participate in exchange programmes with numerous partners both within and outside Europe. 

Programme structure

The Bachelor of Business Administration programme is structured along five domains:

  • Management of Business Domains
  • Economic Analysis and International Orientation
  • Entrepreneurship and Innovation - Professional Skills and Employability
  • Mathematical and Statistical Techniques - Research skills
  • Behaviour, Society and Law

You are taught by researchers as well as business managers. In each of the three stages (years) you work on a management project to develop the management and communication skills that are important to business professionals.

Career perspectives

Business administrators are managers who can make informed strategic decisions in response to economic challenges and opportunities. The majority of students continue their education in KU Leuven's Master of Science in Business Administration programme. Although many graduates go on to graduate-level studies, your bachelor's degree in Business Administration certainly has value in its own right in today’s job market. As a Bachelor of Business Administration graduate, you have knowledge that can be successfully applied in a wide range of vacancies and sectors. Depending on your personal interests and career goals, your degree will give you access to positions in purchasing, sales, marketing, production control, planning and budgeting, financial management and ICT. Graduates also find employment in banks and insurance companies, join the civil service or one of the European institutions, or start their own company.

Through assignments and projects, in close contact with organizations (e.g. management projects, bachelor's thesis and career development courses), you develop general and specific management competencies, career and research skills and a sense of entrepreneurship.

Students and young graduates can consult relevant job vacancies and internships with the help of our online career platform Career Corner.  You will also have the opportunity to meet potential employers at job and internship fairs organised throughout the year and during campus recruitment activities.
