About Business Administration, MSc - at Radboud University, Nijmegen School of Management

Giving a broad, social perspective on organisations that goes beyond management and economics includes multiple value creation as well as corporate social responsibility.

You will need more than analytical business skills to understand today’s global business environment and to succeed in it. Our programme in Business Administration aims at multiple value creation: it devotes equal attention to economic aspects as to organisational and social processes. This attention for the complete big picture is what creates a better understanding of the importance of good management and can eventually increase the performance of all kinds of organisations. You will have plenty of knowledge of corporate social responsibility and will be able to act independently as well as be a member of a team in any kind of organisation.
