Who should participate in this summer program?
In today’s labor market, knowledge of managing organizations and of business administration becomes increasingly important. This summer program will introduce you to the tools that you need to analyze the strategic environment of firms, analyze markets and conduct business research. In six weeks we introduce you to the principles of management and organization, of accounting and economics.
The program is designed for all those non-business undergraduate students (students in arts, sciences, engineering, law and humanities) who seek to get a grasp of the fundamentals of business management. Ideally, our participants have absolved two years of undergraduate studies. However, they can also be recent graduates.
