Students will benefit from annual coaching sessions to help them assess their skills, prioritise their development and determine their future career, as well as an internship. 

Our Bachelor’sprogramme (220 ECTS) offers students to take a wide range of modules in addition to the academic Bachelor’s. Students select one Entrepreneurship Certificate and one Certificate in Personal Development. Coaching and internship are also available as part of the degree.

Our Double Bachelor Programme (260 ECTS) offers students to take a full Bachelor’s in Business & Leadership as well as the academic Bachelor’s.  The Bachelor’s in Business & Leadership includes 3 Entrepreneurship Certificates. Students will also have to complete the full Personal Development programme. Coaching, internship and consulting work are also available as part of the degree.

Double Bachelor’s in Economics & Politics and Business & Leadership

I decided to join Forward College for its personalised approach to teaching and the variety of fields of study I could focus on. At Forward, I knew I wouldn’t be treated just as a number and would be given the opportunity to craft my bachelor’s based on my own interests. Working on topics I am passionate about is how I feel I can make an impact in the world. Currently, I’m a Climate Pact Ambassador for the European Commission, which means I am able to attend global events and also collaborated with non-profit organisations like UNICEF. I am also passionate about law, arts, philosophy and volunteering.

Double Bachelor’s in Psychology and Business & Leadership

I joined Forward College because I wanted to broaden my perspectives by studying and living in three different countries. As part of my Bachelor’s in Business and Leadership, I’ve done a project about the sense of community, belonging, and well-being in an underprivileged neighbourhood of Lisbon. In my free time, I like to play the violin, guitar and ukulele, and develop my photography skills.

I joined Forward College for the opportunity to study in three different countries which would give me the chance to step out of my comfort zone and connect with people from different cultures. As part of my Bachelor’s in Business & Leadership, I have built a platform to connect NGOs with volunteers. When I am not studying, I love to travel and cook.

Bachelor’s+ in Politics & International Relations

I joined Forward College because of the innovative way of teaching and the focus on practical skills. I also found it important to go to an international university that offers a personal development programme. In this programme, I learn how to manage stress, how to understand emotions and address them, as well as how to make decisions. In my free time, I like to travel, explore new places, and exercise.

Double Bachelor’s in Economics & Politics and Business & Leadership

I choose to study at Forward, because it offers outstanding travelling opportunities thanks to its traveling aspect in addition to its high-quality education. I am really engaged in community service and sports. Along with two friends, we have been organising a cultural festival to give back life to a forgotten area in Hungary. The festival has been so successful that it has attracted more than 200 people and in 2021 it expects to host around 600.
