All About Tor Vergata's Bachelor Degree in Business Administration & Economics

What: Bachelor in Business Administration & Economics

The BA&E bachelor is a undergraduate degree course useful to cope with the complexity of a global economy.

The programme presents a multidisciplinary approach, tackling with concepts and models from Management, Economics, Finance and Quantitative Methods.

The structure of the programme is continuously updated, focusing on the development of concrete links between theory and real-world applications. 
The international context supports our students to strengthen their own integration and co-competition abilities to successfully approach the professional and the personal life.

The BA&E programme provides the competencies and the conceptual and methodological tools to meet the challenges of the economic system and the internal dynamics of organisations and institutions that elaborate their strategies in it.

How It Is Structured

The programme is entirely held in English.

The first two academic years share a base of common training courses.

In the third year, students can choose between two different curricula, Business Administration or Economics.
