Business Management Study – The MBA with three directions is an absolute novelty in the programming development of EFFECTUS. According to one reviewer, “the whole of the study is representative at the national level, which is an additional quality, an innovative concept to the relevant extent.” It is a completely innovative concept of study based on the integration of different areas of business management and interdisciplinarity. Such a new concept enables the adoption of a wide range of specific competencies and, to the greatest extent possible, appreciates the fact that changes in the demand side of the labor market structure from the graduate level of studies require a multidimensional approach to education. Also, the conceptual creation of a new study has created a number of alternatives in choosing career paths of graduate students.

At the end of the first semester, students are presented with the option to choose the course of study, and one of the three offered courses can be enrolled at the start of the second year of study.
