I am convinced that the process of changing the Rector will not reduce these abilities. This academic year, the BA School of Business and Finance, in addition to the highly valued financial and risk management, international programs implemented by SBS Swiss Business School and the BA School of Business and Finance, as well as the Cyber Security Management Program, offers new opportunities – modernized and digitally transformed business process management a program with three qualification options.
