- Business Foundation Program Outline
The Business Foundation program (BF) is a two-semester course (60 ECTS) that acts as a bridge to the first year of EU’s Bachelor’s degree programs (BBA/BA/BS). Students will strengthen their academic, communication and business English skills while studying business management and marketing concepts. Upon successful completion of the BF program, students are automatically admitted into the first year of any European University Bachelor program.
Many graduating students aspire to enroll in an internationally-accredited bachelor program but lack the necessary background or skills to do so. The Business Foundation program’s objective is to “bridge the gap” for aspiring candidates. It provides them with the means to acquire the necessary knowledge and language base to achieve an above average performance rate in any of our demanding Bachelor programs. If you want to pursue an internationally-focused business degree but need a little help with the language or getting up to the level, this program is for you.
You can enroll in the BF program at the beginning of any semester during the academic year, including the summer sessions; it takes two semesters to complete.
97% of all European University BF students successfully enroll in and complete an EU Bachelor’s program.
