The BBA Learning Journey

FIRST YEAR

The first year is designed to build a foundation for a successful BBA journey through the development of essential knowledge, skills and personal insights. Students are tested for levels of devel¬opment, learn about expectations and standards, and become familiar with the values of IE including humanities, entrepreneurship and international collaboration. The curriculum covers key business subjects and introduces essential context and appreciation for the wider world in which business operates.

SECOND YEAR

The second year of the BBA builds on the foundational blocks in year 1, and introduces a number of practical courses which tests and develops the student’s skills and approach to busi¬ness. Fundamental subjects become more complex and there is a strong element of finance and numeracy. Practical projects in entrepreneurship and marketing expose students to the world of work and delivering results in teams. Students become more aware of the choices they need to make for years 3 and 4, and are given support by our academic teams in identifying key areas for development in order to suc¬ceed in specific early career paths. The introduction of technology courses shows the University´s commitment to cross-disciplinary learning and insight into innovation.

THIRD YEAR

Students will continue the compulsory track in semester one, with subjects such as strategy and supply chain management which can build on the foundational courses of the first two years. These subjects benefit from the knowledge and experiences in the first half of the BBA. A practical assignment which consists of a cross-university Challenge project will help students applied what they have learned and combine with other subjects. Students continue their journey in semester two with personal choices in electives, study abroad, and internship. They can combine from a wide range of options, to follow their passion for specific subjects and career tracks.

FOURTH YEAR

The final year allows for continued specialization or a broadening expe¬rience, at IE University or a partner university. Electives and internships are available in semester one, followed by a final semester which includes the thesis project, a major team assignment, and the capstone strategic course. Students can also choose internships and electives as their final work in the months before graduation. The second semester brings all students on campus one last time, ensuring that the BBA is completed together as a community of learning and to celebrate the achievements from the past four years.
