Bachelor International Business
ENCOURAGING AUTONOMY, OFFERING SUPPORT
For many young people, leaving school is akin to cutting the umbilical cord all over again, bringing with it greater independence and more personal responsibility. It is often accompanied by a move to a new city. In many cases, this is the first time a young person lives away from their family and it is an exciting time – for the young adult, of course, but also for you as parents.
Parents naturally want to support their children as best they can in this new phase in their lives. It is important to pass on experiences, reflect on opportunities, share networks and work together to plan how the prospective student will finance their studies.
Young people appreciate it when their parents support them as they make their decision. As they choose a course of study, it is important to discuss matters as equals and give them the freedom to forge their own path.
A bachelor’s degree at MBS is a practice-oriented, international and comprehensive program that can be completed in a compact seven semesters.
