Bachelors in Equine Studies. The English-taught bachelor’s degree in International Equine Business Management is a business administration degree in which the horse plays a central part. Business administration subjects make up 70% of the International Equine Business Management course. While horse-related subjects make up the remaining 30%. The focus on equine management makes it easier for students to absorb the information on the business administration subjects such as marketing and economics. Writing business plans One of the things that the students will learn during the study programme is how to write policy memos. The student must choose a current topic within the sector such as doping in equestrian sports or identification & registration, for example, and create a policy for it. Students will also learn how to compile business plans. Their business plans can be for an equestrian business but it need not be. It is, however, important for students on the International Equine Business Management degree to have some prior experience in the equine sector. While you do not need to own your own horse in order to take this degree, we do consider it important for you to have some knowledge of the sector and to have some experience in working with horses.
