Core 71
Specialization 12

Core courses impart essential business knowledge and are divided in Foundation, Business Skills, and General Education. Specialization courses provide in-depth knowledge in a functional area. Our graduates will thus have expertise in one functional specialization (i.e. Finance, Management, Marketing) and will be well-prepared to meet the challenges of a globalized economy. The curriculum provides a broad choice of Elective courses in order to help students develop their soft and analytical skills. All BBA students have to complete a specific number of courses in one foreign language: Chinese or Korean. Students can choose any one of the two languages provided it is not their mother tongue. By the time of graduation, students will be proficient in three languages: mother tongue, English, and Chinese/Korean.
