Faculty of Business Administration and Economics - Well-Connected in the Economic Field
The Faculty of Business Administration and Economics has a national and international network of partners and cooperations.
Not only do we offer research and teaching activities through the institutes and academic chairs, we also organise the annual job fair "ConPract". Moreover, we support the set-up of one's own business in the net economy via E-Entrepreneurship.
The biannual graduation ceremonies of the faculty also benefit from this network: well-known speakers give speeches and grant an insight into their industrial sector and professional career:
