Moreover, we offer a deepening of specific problems concerning organizational structures and strategic business development.  Students will gain a broad spectrum of knowledge and skills that is applicable to a variety of professions. As students also obtain professional qualifications in “general management”, they may use course content in many fields and operational areas of responsibility.
