The study programme is addressed to people aspiring to work in an international and intercultural environment, both in global corporations and companies operating on domestic markets. The course addresses two key challenges and, at the same time, interests of the labor market, namely it develops the competencies of functioning in the digital environment, industry 4.0 or the Internet, as well as the ability to analyse and evaluate the operation of an organisation with emphasis on increasing efficiency. Contemporary business success is built on a synergistic combination of creativity with critical thinking, innovation, analytical view, and empathy, with the agility to make accurate decisions.
