Course Aim
After the course the student should have basic knowledge about the different subjects that are the contents of business administration and subjects for managing a company/organization producing products and/or service. The student should have an overview of marketing, organization, production, quality, accounting, logistics; and their necessary control and cooperation for successful operations.

The course describes connections between business plan, demands from the market, and how a company can design and control its processes to accomplish the demands from the customers.

Lectures, seminars, project work. The course contains business sector based cases.

Written examination, compulsory attendances at seminars.

Students must register for the courses themselves, or contact ETS educational administration, not later than three days after the quarter commences. Failure to do so can result in the place being lost. This rule also applies to students with a guaranteed place.
