Minor Business Administration


The Minor in Business Administration teaches business knowledge and skills that are important for your future career. In many companies there is a need for people who link knowledge of their field to business knowledge and management skills. The minor Business Administration in combination with your own study offers you this this opportunity!

Among other things, the minor focuses on strategic, financial and marketing issues that can arise within organizations. The minor distinguishes itself in didactics by paying attention to (academic) skills, interdisciplinarity- and business knowledge that is important in your further career.

The interdisciplinary nature of this minor is visible through the diverse group of students and the wide range of subjects. In the working groups you apply knowledge to challenging business issues, for example in the field of entrepreneurship, marketing and change management.

This minor is offered by the Department of Business Administration, affiliated with the Faculty of Law. Our department employs enthusiastic teachers from various disciplines, such as entrepreneurship, marketing, finance, organization, strategy and behavioral sciences.
