PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES

The bachelor degree in Business Administration (BSc) aims to the transmission of knowledge, problems analysis methodology, technical knowledge and functional tools that are essential in the world of business administration. 

Provision of this knowledge is fulfilled by taking into consideration its application both in decision-making in the sector of business administration and in achieving better business operation.

WHY CHOOSE TO ATTEND?

Undergraduate students will acquire basic knowledge in many of these aspects of the business world, before choosing a specialisation. The combination of academic challenge and practical focus makes the prospect of studying business highly appealing to those attracted to the competitive, yet collaborative learning environment offered by many business schools and departments.

Business graduates go on to work in various sectors, and not all of them are those you would typically associate with business in general. More obvious careers with a business degree include roles in accounting and finance departments, which take in large numbers of business degree graduates. Other sectors with high demand for business graduates include marketing and advertising, as well as retail, sales, human resources and business consultancy. The diversity and plenitude of careers with a business degree underlies the interest of many students.

 

The Open University of Cyprus (OUC), through its participation in the European project "Liaison Offices with the Labour Market", offers to students of all its programmes of study, the optional and free of charge Thematic Unit (i.e. Module) entitled "Industry Placement". This module provides students opportunities for a placement to gain professional experience in their particular field of study, and the hosting institution can be any public or private organisation operating in the Republic of Cyprus.

Each student has the right to participate in this offering once or twice during his / her studies, provided that s/he meets the required conditions.
