Qualification program for academics: Business Administration

This project intends to qualify further individuals with foreign academic degrees (especially in Business Administration) and to refresh their specialist knowledge.

Academics with foreign degrees are often not employed at a level corresponding to their qualifications, or experience difficulties in entering the labour market at all. UP Transfer GmbH at the University of Potsdam is offering a practical qualification to address this issue. This qualification will give the participants an opportunity to improve their current employment opportunities.

The next qualification starts in October:
