The International Business Administration (IBA) field of Economics & Management is the broadest of the selection of IBA specializations, enabling students to understand management from an international and organizational, economy based perspective.
Knowledge of how the economy works has become essential to businesses around the world. The idea that the way companies and organizations, consumers and governments make decisions that will affect the operation, performance and eventual success of a firm has been embedded within business administration, which makes the program Economics & Management the broadest business degree offered by Wittenborg. Economics concerns the conduct of business within the local, social and political environment, looking at the conduct of business, government policy-making, laws and restrictions and the enormous changes taking place within Europe, America, Asia, Africa and the rest of the world.
Management looks at the skills and competencies required to effectively manage a company or organization within the economy, and the coordination of materials and labor within the scope of the organization’s mission, goals and defined objectives. It looks carefully at the distinct relationships between the segments of an organization, and how these segments are united to form a successful and thriving enterprise. Management students look at the way managers function, lead and make decisions, and they consider a manager’s decision making role and effect on the organizations operations.
The career prospects of Economics & Management graduates are excellent, with around 30% of graduates having chosen for continued education at Master level, however many graduates entering business directly in sectors such as the financial services and real estate sectors, but also companies dealing with international trade, import and export.
Wittenborg graduates can be found as logistics managers at robust SME manufacturing companies, but also as financial specialists in corporations such as Achmea Insurance and Sun Microsystems.
