The study of Business Administration empowers you to develop solutions in all economic and administrative areas on the basis of scientific knowledge. You should have the ability to support the management on different business areas. After a familiarization period you should be able to undertake managerial functions in economy and administration, respectively to work on an entrepreneurial or freelance basis.

A dedicated team of professors and lecturers offer basic knowledge and practical solutions based on the current events of professional practice in the areas of principles and advancement. In addition to providing professional knowledge, imparting key qualifications is as well encouraged. A business language has to be chosen as a foreign language. The practical study semester is integrated in the course of study; however, the learning location is displaced from the university to the company. This practice time of almost half a year is appreciated by many companies and therefore, a significant advantage over university study programs.

After the practical study semester, you choose from the following specializations building on your basic knowledge of business administration:

  • Controlling and Finance Management
  • Marketing
  • Logistics
  • Human Resource Management and Organization
  • Health Management
  • Tax and Financial Statements
  • Management and Economics in Modern India
  • Tourism Management (study semester abroad)
  • Corporate Management in Special Economic Areas (study semester abroad)
  • Commerce (study semester abroad)
  • Public Management
  • Business Formation and Business Succession
  • Language

In cooperation with foreign partner universities, the academic degree of the foreign university can be awarded for a study semester abroad.

Your professional work and development opportunities are characterized by an exceptionally wide range of businesses. Possible fields of activity offer the industry sector, the service sector and the public service sector. You can pursue your career both as a consultant as well as a senior executive.

Study Focus on Management and Economy in Modern India

Study Program Business Administration

More than eight years ago, the University of Hof began to orientate themselves in their internationalization efforts towards India. Since 2011, the India focus is now firmly anchored in the mission statement of this educational institution. Economic relations between Germany and India have intensified in recent years. Both countries see themselves as close partners. However, the cultural differences are notable. Cross-cultural misunderstandings constitute a major barrier in German-Indian business contacts. Professionals and managers, who move competently in both cultures, are increasingly needed in the future.

As of the summer semester 2014, the University of Hof offers students of the bachelor degree programs Business Administration and Business Law this new two-semester study focus on India, among others, in cooperation with the Nirma University in Ahmedabad and the National Law School of India University in Bangalore.
