The Final International University Department of Business Administration was founded in 2015. Its undergraduate program leading to a Bachelor of Science honors degree is taught in English.
The program has been carefully designed to enable our students to acquire both theoretical and applied business knowledge, to solve business problems, and above all to think analytically.
The Department offers an interdisciplinary approach consisting of theoretical and applied courses covering all branches of the discipline. The program is thoroughly informed by the most recent developments in a global understanding of technology and business practice, and trains students not only to understand the problems faced by economies and industries internationally but to conduct practical research to generate solutions in the field. The Department is dedicated to delivering a program that meets the highest of international standards.
Program Aim and Outcomes
The aim of the Business Administration Bachelor’s Degree Program is to prepare graduates in business and management sciences with the help of courses such as economics, mathematics, computer skills, statistics, marketing, finance, accounting, manufacturing, human resources management, and process management. It is also to educate students as "managerial or managerial candidates" who are able to analyze the problems they encounter with the help of contemporary management approaches, to bring rational and scientific solutions to these problems, and who are open to contemporary ideas and developments.
The course contents of the Business Administration Undergraduate Program are designed to enable our students to obtain theoretically and applied business knowledge, to solve business problems, and to think analytically.
Since instruction is in English, students will have the opportunity to improve their reading, writing, and especially speaking skills in English and thus communicate with the whole world.
The Bachelor of Business Administration prepares graduates in such a way that they can work in different positions within the national and international private and public sectors. The curriculum proposed by the Business Bachelor Program aims to improve students' practical skills in addition to theoretical knowledge.
The objectives of the Business Administration Undergraduate Program are as stated below:
To equip students with advanced knowledge and skills in management, human resources, production, public relations, finance, marketing, accounting, and also auditing.
To ensure competent decision-making in difficult situations in these areas.
To bring in social and ethical responsibility with innovative research and entrepreneurial competencies.
To equip students with leadership abilities through promoting the competence to communicate effectively in the environment.
To instill the principle of continuous learning.
To educate specialists and administrators for private and public institutions.
The Business Administration program aims to educate and train students with specialist knowledge and practice skills necessary for innovative leadership in the field.
In particular, the curriculum of the Business Administration Program, in line with the FIU curriculum, aims to ensure that by the end of a four-year program of undergraduate study, successful students will have:
LO1 Demonstrated the ability to communicate effectively in English in both speech and writing.
LO2 Shown development in analytical, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills as foundations for creative and innovative Business Administration practice.
LO3 Acquired the core concepts as well as the theoretical and practical knowledge of Business Administration compatible with contemporary requirements in the professional field.

LO10 Demonstrated a practical competence in those mathematical, scientific, and digital applications required within the context of Business Administration, and more generally in modern life, as referenced to international qualifications (for example The European Computer Driving Licence Advanced Level).
The Business Administration Undergraduate degree program comprises 122 credits of full-time study which must be completed. In order to graduate, students are required to have a minimum cumulative average of 2.00 out of a possible total of 4.00.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer System)
FIU’s credit allocation system has also been carefully aligned with the European Credit Transfer System on the basis of 1 ECTS credit requiring 25 hours of student work both inside and outside formal classes.
A four-year FIU degree is, therefore, equivalent to 240 ECTS credits, or approximately 30 ECTS credits per semester.
Over the course of a full calendar year, in order to meet program requirements, it is expected that a student would therefore need to study 1500 hours, including classes, home study, and holiday study.
Individual courses are not currently assigned ECTS credit values, but departments will advise on equivalences and priorities.
Students graduating from the program are awarded a BBA in Business Administration.
Numerous employment opportunities are available for successful graduates of the Business Administration program in both the industrial and service sectors. Specific employment areas include banking, tourism, insurance, transportation, and foreign trade, to name but a few. Graduates may find themselves in positions in public institutions also, such as Central Banks, State Planning Organizations, Chambers of Commerce, and Industry and Foreign Trade organizations. With a background in business administration, graduates are also prepared to contribute to private companies of all shapes and sizes, as well as to consider starting their own businesses or companies.
