The aim is to help and support you on your way to developing a broad understanding of business, to building up an entrepreneurial skills set and acquiring the leadership competencies you need to respond to the challenges and problems humanity in general, and businesses in particular, face in the 21st century.

The knowledge of entrepreneurship in theory and practice, business processes and management function is complemented by further broader specific areas, such as accounting, finance, marketing, law, organisational behaviour, IT, and qualitative and quantitative research methods.

Furthermore, through a historical view of management as well as a study of corporate and business ethics issues, you develop a historically embedded and society-oriented perspective. This holistic approach should sensitise you not only to responsibility in your field of business, but also to society and the environment.

The Bachelor dissertation is the final component of your Leuphana Bachelor degree. Your dissertation should demonstrate that you are able to apply the principles and methodology you have learned to a question of your choice, and to engage with current questions in the field.
