What is the focus of the Business Administration (BUS) program?
Since the beginning of the century, Cambodia has been pursuing the ambition of attaining an upper-middle-income status by 2030. In order to do this, it actively works on supporting small and medium enterprises (SMEs). According to some government officials, modernizing SMEs is a crucial task for the Cambodian economy if it wants to compete globally. That is why the Royal Government of Cambodia actively encourages new business initiatives through investment and otherwise. In relation to this, studying business administration is very popular among Cambodian students.
Additionally, in recent years many international companies have chosen to expand to the Cambodian market. These companies choose to employ qualified young professionals with developed soft skills and knowledge of business administration. However, there is still a visible shortage of such individuals in Cambodia today.
