A dynamic and complex environment
In terms of application and content, business administration is a field that is continuously changing. Businesses and society are permanently engaged in a dynamic process of evolution. The intensity and speed of these changes and their complexity are immense/profound. Today, businesses find themselves under considerable (price/cost) pressure. Increased national and global competition has significantly increased the demands placed on businesses and their personnel, in particular at the management level.
