Studies in Business Administration in the European Higher Education Area: A Comparative Analysis in Europe
Cavero Rubio, José Antonio; Mullor, Javier Reig; Martín, Agustín Pérez
Innovations in Education and Teaching International, v52 n6 p575-586 2015
On signing the Bologna declaration in 1999, European countries committed themselves to addressing the reforms necessary for adapting their university education to the European Higher Education Area. This modification process culminated in 2010, and this research aims to analyse the degree of divergence that currently exists in each course subject taken by European Business Administration (BA) graduates. This analysis is based on the educational curricula from 80 European universities in 15 countries that offer degree programmes with this professional profile. After statistical hypothesis techniques and confidence intervals were applied to the data from different European university curricula, the investigative results demonstrated which subjects European graduates have acquired competences in, showing the divergence in the curricula structure of BA degrees. This situation could have implications for student and teacher mobility, master's and doctorate courses, international competitiveness of European universities, graduated employability and university--business cooperation.
