Careers

Your Business Administration career outlook

After completing your Bachelor in Business Administration online, you’ll be ready to take on specialist and leadership positions in companies worldwide. Your expert knowledge can be applied in a wide range of roles in accounting, marketing, sales, HR, or management departments.

Business Manager

As a Business Manager, you would be responsible for monitoring all departments within a company and developing industry-specific solutions to increase sales and acquire new customers. You will draw up financial plans from an economic point of view and review projects regarding efficiency. As a Business Manager in a large company, you might present directly to the board of directors and convince them of your high level of consulting competence. In smaller companies, you can often make decisions independently and report to the management.  

Assistant Accountant

As an Assistant Accountant, you could work in finance and accounting—typically at a bank, an auditing company, or in the finance department of a company. You will be responsible for bookkeeping, the preparation of financial plans and reports, and the performance of administrative tasks. You are familiar with the company's internal guidelines and keep an eye on fluctuating government regulations regarding the recording of financial data. You maintain databases accordingly and ensure smooth overall operations of the business. 

Business Developer

In your position as Business Developer you are responsible for the further development and expansion of a company's business areas. As a central driver of growth and innovation, you are committed to the future-oriented alignment of your organisation. In doing so, you pursue central growth strategies within the framework of market development, product development, and diversification. You’re always on the hunt to bring in new business and optimise the status quo.
