Since the final years of high school, I started to see that a strong foundation of entrepreneurial and marketing skills and an understanding of business environments are rapidly gaining more significance in a modern, fast-paced world. Therefore, my burning desire to study business administration was kindled through the valuable opportunities it gives a student to acquire a detailed knowledge of business disciplines. The programme focuses on all major functional areas of business and integrates practical learning as part of the studies but simultaneously leads to many possibilities and career paths for future professional growth. —  Merey, International Student Ambassador from Kazakhstan
