Students who choose the Bachelor of Entrepreneurial Business Administration pathway and the specialization in Entrepreneurship & Small Business are often interested in starting their own company at the end of their studies. It is a challenging program and fully packed with business and entrepreneurship projects.
The Entrepreneurship program is for students who know that they would like to start and run their own business, and who want the support and tools that a Bachelor program in Entrepreneurship and SME Management can give them. Students will be required to have an international outlook, and speak good English. Students will have ambition, optimism and good general communication skills. They will be imaginative, artistic, conceptual thinkers and have good social networks.
The EBA pathway will enable future entrepreneurs to more readily adapt to the changing environment, through the use of their learned skills, competencies and knowledge, thus also maximizing the avoidance of company failure. In cases where companies do fail, trained entrepreneurs will be more capable of ensuring continuation than those who are not specifically educated in the field of entrepreneurship.
Double Degree Possible – BSc in Business & Management
The Final Year EBA, offered in Amsterdam, has a special ‘Double Degree Pathway’ and is offered jointly with Wittenborg’s UK partner, the University of Brighton. This means that modules are co-taught, and the teaching and learning style is clearly a British one. Successful students gain two degrees – the Dutch BBA from Wittenborg and a UK BSc in Business & Management awarded by the University of Brighton.
