About the program

The B.A. in Business Administration (Extended Major) is a dually accredited program. You will get both an American and European BA degree for a single price. The program is delivered by an international faculty with top qualifications and experience in the business world.

The Extended Major is ideal for students seeking wide-ranging knowledge in the field of business and market economy, management, marketing, and finance. This option is suited to students whose primary aim is the breadth, rather than depth, of knowledge in a specific area, for transferring students who may have completed courses that correspond to this general approach, or for those with a creative streak who wish to devise their own curriculum.

Students of the extended major will combine in-class theory with real-world problem solving, including practical experience at a business in the area of their choice. They will develop qualitative as well as quantitative thinking skills while becoming proficient in foreign languages, communication, and writing. As graduates, students of the extended major will be prepared for the most competitive and dynamic jobs on the market, and be able to manage their own career development, as well as the development of other individuals and groups.

What I enjoy most about AAU is its diverse and engaging environment. The smaller class sizes allowed me to make meaningful connections with faculty members and students, and facilitated networking, which is extremely important in the business world, and has enabled me to seek out the right opportunities.

Beyond the classroom, you can join student clubs like Business Club or participate in hands-on programs like the International Consulting Program. AAU’s Career Center also connects students with numerous professional internships in the Czech Republic and abroad every year.

See what our students have to say

We do almost all of our projects in small international teams, and we work together like we would in a business company and synergize our different ideas. There's flexibilities to meet with teachers outside of class, and ask them questions, not just specifically things we learn in the class.

I like AAU because it’s very diverse and you can take as many classes as you want, including ones not connected to your degree. That way you can grow as a person. I enjoy basically every hour I spend here and I feel like I’m getting value for every class and I feel very connected to the people around me.
