BIBA is the abbreviation for Bachelor of Business Administration. This academic degree is awarded to students who have studied business administration. The standard period of study is 3 years. In the WHU degree program, you will be taught the following core content: Basic knowledge of business, sales, marketing, finance, corporate management, logistics, production and economics. From the fourth semester onwards, you can deepen your knowledge even further and specialize in the following areas: international economics, entrepreneurship, business law or sports and event management. In addition to the core subjects, at WHU you will also benefit from numerous other events on the topics of psychology and philosophy, which will further expand your knowledge. WHU also provides you with excellent foreign language skills. During your Bachelor's program, you will choose one language from seven foreign languages. You will find more detailed information here.

With a Bachelor's degree of Business Administration, you'll have access to an almost endless range of careers in a wide variety of industries. Whether you later want to do marketing for consumer goods, plan to found your own start-up, or find stock market transactions exciting - this degree can be your perfect starting point for all this and much more. The academically based, but at the same time very practice-oriented degree program offers you a sound education in business and economics, with a focus on strategic tasks in companies. The aim of your studies at WHU is that you will later be able to manage a company or a division of a company.

The career platform Stepstone.de gives an average starting salary of 35,200 euros for career starters with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration degree. At WHU, we do not calculate our own average for our Bachelor graduates, as the vast majority of our students either start a Master's program directly after graduating with a Bachelor's degree or continue their professional orientation in a gap year, initially with internships or an Entrepreneur-in-Residence position. An overview of the first steps after a WHU Bachelor's degree can be found here. Information on starting salaries after a Master's program at WHU can be found here. Basically, you can say that the range of Bachelor's degree of Business Administration salaries is huge. If you start at a start-up in the early stages or found your own company, you can usually not expect as much salary as if you start at a large corporation, as an analyst in investment banking or as a junior consultant in consulting. The range we see among the rather few bachelor's graduates who start their careers directly with a bachelor's degree extends from less than 35,000 to more than 65,000 euros. 

To be able to complete a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration at WHU, you must have the following admission requirements: A university entrance qualification (e.g. IB or A-Levels), advanced English language skills and a 6-week internship. Other personal skills such as determination and organizational skills are helpful for you to successfully complete your studies.
