Overview

Our Commerce and Marketing Programme has a long-standing tradition and market-leading features in the field of marketing and commerce education. Its aim is to prepare students who are professionals with up-to-date business knowledge, expertise, and the skills necessary for the labour market, and who will be able to perform the procurement and sale of various products and services in a demand-driven manner.

Students graduating from this programme will be able to manage the commercial, logistics, and marketing activities of SMEs and large enterprises. The programme is offered by two different faculties, with the difference between the two being the specialisations available. The Faculty of International Management and Business focuses on marketing communications, digital marketing activities, and marketing practices for profit-oriented enterprises and non-profit organisations, as well as the further expansion of related knowledge and skills.
