The Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Business Administration aims to develop pro-active decision makers, managers and leaders for a variety of careers in business sectors in a global context. The programme focusses on innovation, creativity and leadership, making it a varied and challenging journey towards awareness of one’s own professional skills and abilities. A grouping of essential core subjects are uniquely combined with the study of a language, two integral internship placements, integrative workshops and the choice of five specialisations: management, marketing, finance, sports management and media & communications. A distinctive constellation of interlocking subjects ensures that each student receives the knowledge and the analytical, creative and quantitative expertise needed to be able to manage people, resources and information in a dynamic business environment. With these key skills ESE students are more attractive to employers, and know how to enable companies to achieve their goals and objectives in the private, public and non-profit sectors. Students will also have the added advantage of being able to pursue the BSc in Business Administration in any of the ESE campuses, whether London, Madrid, Milan, Florence or Rome.

Assessment methods are designed not only to grade performance but to motivate learners and influence their learning strategies. Formative feedback will be offered for contributory assessments and other activities that take place during the course of the module. Also, inter- sessional tasks which students will be asked to undertake will be reflective not only of the nature of the examination questions but also of real workplace scenarios in order to enhance their professional skills. Formative feedback will focus on ways of improving work and will typically be offered in a number of ways appropriate for the kind of task undertaken by the student, including: • In person, either individually, or collectively during seminars, workshops, or tutorials. • Via personal email • Via the virtual learning environment. Assessment strategies are devised on a course by course basis according to the nature of the material to be covered, and can include anything from in-class quizzes and exams to individual or group projects, essays and case studies.
