About the Business Management and Economics Program

Business Management and Economics is a higher education preparatory program. After graduating from this program students are prepared for higher education in primarily economics, law and other social sciences.

Students learn about social economics, business management, leadership and law. Social economics deals with how society best uses its resources so as to meet people’s needs. Business management takes a business perspective and together with leadership develops the skills required for starting and running a business. The law courses cover the Swedish legal system as well as the laws and regulations that govern or affect businesses, organisations and private life. This program also develops insight into how people think, feel and act. A knowledge of psychology is important for decisions and evaluations in both economics and law.
