For students: Independent work from the start

Experience freedom and get in touch with companies in the Business Administration course at the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences: You get the equipment from us!

If you study with us, you can take your first steps towards practice in different ways: Lectures by experts from the field (e.g. in courses or in the context of fireside chats) give you first insights into the world of companies from the region and those operating internationally.

In the bachelor’s program, we organize company excursions or you take on responsibility as part of a practical project lasting several months. You get this possibility in the course “Practical Projects”, which is located in the 4th semester of the Bachelor´s degree. The aim of this teaching / learning platform is to give students the opportunity to work out specific tasks for external clients: It is about finding common goals, project planning, assigning roles, developing their own ideas and presenting them to management.

Do not worry: you will not be left alone. You will be coached by us.

If you study with us in the master’s program, there are also many opportunities to test your learnings. In addition to lectures and excursions, there is, for example, the Student Studies seminar, which is anchored in the master’s program in the second semester (see for instance the activities evolving around Curiositas which developed as part of the student studies seminar). For over a year you will work with group members of your choice on a self-defined project. This requires a lot of initiative, personal responsibility and perseverance! As a sounding board, we are of course available at your side. However, the responsibility for success (or failure) lies on you!

Another point of contact with practice are the master theses. For some topics you look for experts to work on your research topic, in other cases you work in close coordination with a company. Either way, you will go through ups and downs. But here too: We will coach you.
