Marketing

What is part of marketing? Undoubtedly, these are TV advertisements, billboards, pushing of unnecessary products, sale of products detrimental to the environment, people, plants, animals, etc. However, marketing is also the expansion of the idea of the protection of the environment, the introduction of a new drug, living conditions in flats and houses, etc.
Usually, we see only the external manifestation of marketing, i.e. advertisements, packaging, sales prices, shop windows, product design, brand logos, etc. We do not see the research work behind the studying of dissatisfied or poorly satisfied needs and desires of customers and the work done in laboratories and development departments where experts search for solutions to problems of numerous people. We do not see the thoughts of marketing experts who connect all these and other effects and activities of marketing into a harmonised unity so that the products are available at points of sale on time, in the right condition, and in appropriate quantities.
In the context of this course, you will learn about the development and definition of marketing in detail. You will learn about the main marketing concepts, the market environment, segmentation and positioning in the consumer market, the marketing mix and the characteristics of individual elements of the marketing mix, and basic brand concepts.

Law and economy: the legal regulation

The course is comprised so that it first familiarises you with individual basic legal concepts such as state, sovereignty, legal order, legal relationship, and with a minor part of property law which basically comprises only property rights. It then continues to the basics of the law of obligations, especially focusing on sales contracts and the basics of status law and types of economic operators known to our and the European legal order.

Business Communication and Intercultural Dialogue– First Foreign Language I (English, German, Italian or Russian)

A few years ago, the knowledge of English or another global language was a desired skill, while today it is a requirement to enter the labour market. Employers no longer look only at the professional qualifications, as it is becoming increasingly important for prospective employees to be fluent in foreign languages, especially in their field of work.
The knowledge of a foreign language enables business communication across the globe, while speaking foreign languages also allows you to break the ice with new business partners or ensure good foundations for successful negotiations. The knowledge of foreign languages represents your professional competencies, regardless or whether you are leading an international team or working as a representative in an office – it enables faster solving of problems, eventual conflicts and challenges, it represents your intercultural competencies as in addition to the language you also learn about culture, customs, and history.
The course will introduce you to different business cultures, allow you to develop adaptability and resourcefulness in communication with international partners and a sense for intercultural diversity.

Business Communication

Communication is a component part of our everyday lives and we often think that this in itself is enough to be successful when communicating with other people. This is of course not true. Especially in the business environment, we are not sufficiently aware of the importance of communication as a skill that needs to be learned and continually upgraded. Our skills of business communication can help us when concluding businesses deals or they can strongly impede such endeavours. Today, those who are able to transmit the correct quantity of the needed information to one’s dialogue partner, information which the latter is able to clearly understand, have a clear advantage. The Business Communication course will allow you to develop the skills of clear, targeted, and efficient business communication and provide you with a number of guidelines which will help you continue honing this skill also after the completion of the course.

Employers no longer look only at the professional qualifications, as it is becoming increasingly important for prospective employees to be fluent in foreign languages, especially in their field of work.
The knowledge of a foreign language enables business communication across the globe, while speaking foreign languages also allows you to break the ice with new business partners or ensure good foundations for successful negotiations.

Economics

Economics is a part of our lives. Even if it appears somewhat abstract, we are all continually integrated within it. We all have wishes and desires on the one hand, while the resources on the other hand, which allow us to meet our needs, are limited. This is why we are forced to choose and decide for goods that mean the most and that we need the most. Our lives are filled with economic decisions: what will we buy in a shop, in which shop will we buy, which car will we buy and how will we pay for it, etc. Economic decisions are also made when deciding on our profession, studies, career, etc. Economic laws come to the forefront especially when deciding to embark on an independent entrepreneurial path and our success depends on our ability to operate in the market.
The course will familiarise you with the main laws of economics, the meaning and the main characteristics of a company, the characteristics of production, demand, supply, and costs. You will also learn about the different pricing models and different indicators for assessing company success.

Basic informatics

We can no longer escape computers. We use them at home, at work, during studies, and we use different computer tools. We are proficient in some of them, less so in others. The Basic Information Science course will provide insight into information and communication technologies, you will learn about the importance of information science in business processes and the importance of netiquette in communicating with the help of information and communication technologies.
The Basic Information Science course is divided into two major parts: the more theoretical part and practical work. The theoretical part of the course will deal with the concepts of computer and information science, with different terms from the field, with historical development and current trends. The practical exercises will consolidate your knowledge of using office computer programs: text and table editors, presentation preparation tools, etc.

Macroeconomics

The economic life of a state depends on millions of activities of individual companies, consumers, employees, and officials, while macroeconomics focuses on the general consequences of these activities. Macroeconomics studies the mutual effects of individual economic categories and focuses on the economy as a whole. The findings of macroeconomic sciences enable national economic institutions to choose and assess economic policy and its measures to solve macroeconomic problems. These are: economic growth, inflation, unemployment, aggregate supply and aggregate demand, consumption and saving, investments, monetary and fiscal policy, stabilisation, globalisation.
During the course, students learn about the main macroeconomic categories, the laws of economy as a whole, and are able to assess macroeconomic phenomena and problems.

5
Business informatics

Business Information Science connects at least three types of people: users, who need an effective business information system for their work, business analysts, who translate user demands into technical speech, and technicians (planners, programmers), who know how to transfer business demands into a program/application.
Business users want information in the palm of their hand, which will facilitate their decisions (management) or operative management of a business process (users). Usually, they do not have the best relationship with technicians. Technicians have an excellent grasp of technical details of hardware and software, programming languages, support tools, communication standards, and protocols. Usually, they do not understand user demands. Business analysts are the ones who listen to user demands and use them as the basis for preparing the architecture of a business information system, a plan, process models, and data models. They are the bridge and the facilitator of a company’s informatisation. They prepare the company’s information strategy, as only a few companies are able to survive without one in the long run.
The Business Information Science course focuses on business information processes and corresponding business information systems. Students learn about operational business information processes and those focusing on management support. They learn about strategic planning and development of business information processes.

5
Finance

Finances are part of our everyday lives, both in business and personal matters, even though we are not even aware of it. How do we assess which loan is the most favourable, how do we calculate interest, what dangers do we face when taking on loans, what is the difference between financing and investing and between liquidity and solvency, how can we establish if a company is profitable, liquid, and efficient, which payment transaction instruments does it use, etc.?
The knowledge gained in the course will help you answer all these questions and enable you to actively participate in your company’s operations.

Managing human resources

During the course, you will learn about content related to human resource management. The content of the course will help you enrich (upgrade) your knowledge from the field of management with an emphasis on human resource management, on shaping a modern organisation that requires management also and above all in the soft skills field, i.e. working with people (management, motivation, conflict solving). The content of the course will help you to effectively become even better leaders.
The activities of the course will use concrete examples to help you adopt the knowledge and become qualified to use various human resource management skills for everyday activities in your work environment.

During the course, you will learn a lot of useful and valuable information and gain knowledge that you will be able to use in your everyday lives and especially at work, such as the special characteristics of employment in the public sector, methods of terminating an employment contract, how to calculate annual leave, when an employee is entitled to the payment of overtime, when an employee is liable for disciplinary action and damages, and what are they rights in the workplace.

1
Seminar – Presentation and Rhetoric

We often do not think about the fact that in the business world, we make a public appearance almost on a daily basis – at a meeting, conference, consultation, business presentation, etc. The success of our business endeavour often also depends on how we present ourselves and having excellent skills and competencies of presentation and rhetoric are exceptionally important. In this intensive seminar, students learn about the principles of good preparation for a presentation or spoken presentation and learn to plan and implement them while also adopting the skills of effective organisation. Most importantly, they are able to correctly implement their presentation in consideration of effective principles of verbal and non-verbal communication.

2
Seminar - Creative business writing and orthograph

In the business world, the image of our language is a component part of our comprehensive image. Correct spelling and creative business writing can significantly contribute to making a good business impression. This seminar will refresh your knowledge of spelling and grammar and let you discover something new to include in your letters and bring them even closer to the intended recipients. Mostly, it will develop the needed knowledge and sense for a more creative and authentic business communication.

Elective Courses (students choose three courses)
6
Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Culture

In every country, entrepreneurship plays an important role in facilitating economic growth and creating new jobs. It is often linked to small and medium-sized enterprises. Knowing that these companies represent the majority in Slovenia and that also in terms of their activity they prevail in all fields, it is clear that understanding entrepreneurship is very important in today’s business world.
The Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Culture course will introduce you to the basic concepts and characteristics of modern entrepreneurship, the role and importance of entrepreneurship for the economy and society, you will learn about the processes surrounding entrepreneurship, and study ethical and moral aspects of entrepreneurship, which are very important in today’s society. 
The course will not focus only on theoretical aspects but mostly on the development of entrepreneurial culture and an entrepreneurial spirit which helps us explore and recognise different opportunities and to think creatively, critically, and differently.

6
Public administration

We are daily in contact with public administration and everything related to it. Public administration is the one adopting regulations, implementing them, and seeing to sanctions if these regulations are not observed. Public administration also ensures the operation of the state, our lives within it, and the realisation of our rights. At the same time, we also have obligations towards the state and the public administration will see to us meeting them.
Public administration is therefore an exceptionally topical issue. However, do we know exactly which authorities are a part of public administration? Which are a part of state administration? How are they organised? How do they operate and what are their jurisdictions? What do municipalities do and how are they organised? Why are public procurements so important? What are administrative proceedings? How are they managed? What do we need to know as a party to an administrative proceeding? This course will allow you to find the answers to these questions.

6
Business lobbying in the EU

Lobbying. A word used often enough, but do we really understand what it means? Where does it come from? What is the purpose of lobbying? What is business lobbying? What is the difference between lobbying and public communication? How can we improve our negotiation skills?
During the course, students will discover numerous interesting points. You will learn about the term lobbying, about lobbying in the context of operation of key EU institutions, and about shaping decisions and coordinating interests among EU Member States – from stakeholders in Member States to the European Council. You will be able to apply theoretical knowledge on lobbying in the European Union and be qualified to implement negotiation techniques to business practices.

6
Methodology of humanistic research

Social methodology derives from sociology, which is by nature a “disbelieving” science. Sociology takes nothing for granted, it does not believe that life is what it appears to be and continually wonders what is hidden in the background. It sees society and culture in a manner that results in the need for further explanations. How does a sociologist understand how society works? By researching it. By observing people, asking questions, living with them, studying official statistical data, analysing media texts, etc. How this should be done is the subject of social methodology.
The content of the course will introduce you to the basic concepts in methodology of social research, you will learn how to ask research questions and form research hypotheses, how to collect data, prepare questionnaires, etc.

6
E-business

In our everyday lives, we are continually met with the terms e-commerce, e-banking, e-learning, e-shop, etc. which start with the prefix e or electronic. In the Electronic Commerce elective course, you will search for the reason why these terms have become so wide spread and see how the activities with the “e” prefix differ from those without it and become competent to act in the digital economy or the information society.
The course will provide you with knowledge on the characteristics of the so-called digital economy and the changes in business organisations arising from the changed circumstances. You will consolidate knowledge from the field of digital economy, especially the position of small and medium-sized enterprises.

6
Personal Management

We face personal management challenges on a daily basis. Let us name only a few: How to organise time so that we can be as efficient and satisfied as possible both in business and personal life? How to cope with stressful situations? How to communicate effectively? How to successfully solve conflicts? How to adopt new knowledge and skills as efficiently as possible and how to think and act as creatively as possible? How to best realise our objectives?
During the course, you will develop various competencies and thus not only understand the importance of factors that determine personality and gain the knowledge that is needed to understand mental processes but will also learn about the fundamental terms of business and social psychology of a business organisation and gain the knowledge that is needed to recognise social behaviour in organisations.

Dynamic Entrepreneruship and Characteristics of Gazelles

Dynamic enterprises are innovative and rapidly growing enterprises that grow at an exceptionally fast rate and achieve above-average results in individual fields and contribute true added value to the national economy. Fast growth predominantly depends on the structure of the company, on the entrepreneur and their team or management, on finances, the company’s intellectual capital, etc. Dynamic enterprises however also face a number of challenges.
The Dynamic Entrepreneurship and Characteristics of Dynamic Enterprises course focuses on how to successfully manage and govern a fast growing company at different levels in order for such a company to successfully transition to a higher life cycle. You will learn about individual cases of fast-growing companies and their methods of responding to growth and learn from good and bad practice examples. You will develop an in-depth understanding of dynamic entrepreneurship and be able to apply it to your business environments.

6
Family Entrepreneurship

There are estimates that at a global scale, family enterprises represent between 60 and 80% of all companies. In Germany, there are supposedly 80% of family enterprises and these employ 80% of people. In Slovenia, 70% of family enterprises comprise the micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises categories. The advantage of family enterprises mostly lies in the commitment to business and family, great flexibility, and expertise.
The purpose of the Family Entrepreneurship course is for students, who will assume leading positions and tasks in family enterprises, or who are preparing to set up a family enterprise or are interested in the issue for any other reason (consulting, media, planning support measures), to get to know the special characteristics of family enterprises, where business (entrepreneurial) and family culture intertwine. You will also learn about the differences between male and female entrepreneurs and the key factors of female entrepreneurship in family enterprises.

6
Corporate logistics

For companies, logistics is an important factor of success and competitiveness. The changed market relationships also affect changes in logistic systems of an individual organisation. Logistics thus plays an increasingly important role in a company’s or organisation’s marketing activities, as it directly affects customer satisfaction and thus also company profitability.
By studying the literature and concrete problems that appear in the implementation of logistic processes in different companies and branches, the course will provide you with insight into the best practice examples from the field.

6
Intrapreneurship

Intrapreneurship is a systematic businesses format of a company and company behaviour which is aimed at facilitating the implementation of novelties in different fields, from new businesses, products or services to increased proactivity in a company. Intrapreneurship brings favourable effects to a company - growth, profit; however, it requires a number of changes that an organisation has to implement in its system. The development of intrapreneurship requires an innovative organisational culture, the shaping of a corporate climate that facilitates intrapreneurship, appropriate technologies, human resources, etc. The underlying questions are the present and future trends in the development of intrapreneurship and the present and future role of individuals in an organisation in the context of new competitiveness paradigms. Perhaps even more importantly, how to manage entrepreneurial organisations, how creative individuals, how to facilitate and continually maintain entrepreneurial thinking in an organisation, etc. Throughout the course, you will search for the answers with the help of theory and practical examples. You will be able to effectively use the findings in your business environment and practice.

Seminar – Preparations for Professional Training

Good preparation is half the work, they say. It is therefore important to prepare well for your practical training or education in the work environment so that you can successfully develop the needed competencies and gain appropriate experience from the direct work environment. This seminar will teach you about the responsibilities of all stakeholders, rules and regulations, and other organisational aspects. We will direct and guide you through the process or preparing for practical training so that you can avoid the pitfalls and successfully conclude practical training.

16
Professional Training in an Enterprise

Today, employers want employees who are ready to immediately start working effectively. Practical training in the company is an excellent opportunity for all who lack this kind of experience to learn how a work environment lives and breathes in real life. You will engage in the activities under the study programme in a concrete company or work organisation and work with internal and external company stakeholders, learn about the diversity of positions and tasks but also develop competencies that will enable you to advance at a professional and personal level.

Diploma Thesis or Taking Two Additional Elective Courses

Based on the accreditation of the bachelor programme and its amendments, which were adopted by the Higher Education Council of the Republic of Slovenia and later its successor NAKVIS, students of undergraduate programmes that are implemented at DOBA Business School can, instead of the obligations associated with the final paper, which are worth 12 ECTS, take two elective courses each worth 6 ECTS of their choice, which they choose among the elective courses offered as part of bachelor programmes at DOBA Business School.

International Business Relations and Institutions

The knowledge of the global economic environment is essential for an economist and the objective of the course is thus for students to gain basic knowledge on external economic flows between countries in the sense of integration, to learn about the international economic system and the fundamental instruments of international economic policy, and to use the obtained knowledge to understand Slovenia’s current and future economic situation.

6
Public Relations and Advertising

In the last five years, public relations and advertising have significantly changed their external appearance and manifestation. Together with the development of different online platforms and the Internet as such, communication methods are also changing – not only of organisations with their consumers/customers but also among people.

Searching for relevant information online is on the rise, we trust the assessments and opinions of other people which we find online, especially if these opinions are expressed by people who we trust otherwise and/or who are our friends. When was the last time that you went to a shop selling technical equipment without previously checking everything about the machine/device that you wished to buy online? Did you even go to a shop? Perhaps you bought the product online and had it delivered to your home. The changed purchasing patterns strongly affect how companies communicate with their customers.

The course will help you utilise all your potential. It will link your knowledge from various fields and enable you to take a slightly different look at organisations (companies, associations, etc.). What is behind the scenes of public relations? What is the job of PR specialists and what of marketing experts? How creative can we be and how detailed do we have to be? How are a company’s objectives associated with marketing communication objectives and public relations objectives? Which types of publics are there? Who is a stakeholder? How are efficiency and success of communication programmes measured? What is a media plan? What is API and what is infographics?

6
International Labour and Union Law

Protection of human rights, economic and social justice, and rule of law are terms that we hear every day and that are important for every individual. The course will provide you with an insight into the role, importance, and legal documents of the most important international organisation that advocates (governs) the development and improvement of labour and social law and consequently also the improvement of economic social rights and position of workers.
During the course, you will also learn when workers can participate in governing and in profit, about the role of trade unions, and when workers can use the last resort to enforce their economic and social rights, i.e. the strike, and when a strike is illegal.

6
Market Law

Today, the market economy model has established itself both at home and abroad. With their market presence, companies enter into different legal relationships with other market participants, either companies or consumers.
Companies cannot operate in the market as they wish but have to act in accordance with market rules and regulations that determine the limits of their free market presence. Such rules constitute market law, which has become important in Slovenia especially after the country’s declared independence.
The purpose of the course is to point out the existence of market rules that direct and at the same time limit entrepreneurial market presence. This will allow you to distinguish allowed entrepreneurial practices from the illicit ones, which is important for a concrete company, its competitors, business partners, and consumers alike. In this way, you will learn about all "vantage points" of all market participants.

Innovation and Innovative Management

Innovations and innovative thinking help us shape the key enablers to start understanding long-term development of business systems. Innovative thinking does not have a strict start and let us hope that it does not have an end. By having the right knowledge, every individual, who already steers or who wishes to successfully steer the tempests of the business world, learns and accepts one of the main resources for generating added value.
The Innovation and Innovative Management course allows students to learn how to successfully manage innovative processes, how to recognise and shape them. The vision of the course is that in the future, all students can be international innovative or innovation managers, whose knowledge is not related only to the their environment but who are able to use their knowledge to recognise opportunities regardless of the development level of their environment within an individual business organisation and its process.

6
Project Management and Teamwork

In our everyday lives, we are continually faced with projects – assignments and tasks – that have specifically defined objectives. Project management and project work organisation are not a magic wand that would turn a loose team without exactly defined objectives and external and internal modes of communication into a production line for projects. Project management basically represents a major change to individuals managing a project and on whom the highest expectations are placed. There is no major science behind this: in addition to careful planning and consideration of all conditions imposed by the environment, a lot of discipline is required when monitoring the course of a project and especially continual adaptation to changes.
What is a project? Who is a good project manager? What knowledge and skills do they possess? Is it enough if they are major experts in the substantive field of the project? Which are the components of a project plan and who is responsible for its preparation? The content of the course and an educational detective game will help you develop project management competencies.

6
Multimedia and Design in Enterprises

The most common use of the term multimedia in a company refers to the importance of the medium as a technology for transmitting, processing, and storing data. The same as any other technological and development process, furnishing a company with media technology or the development of multimedia services has to be carefully planned, as it is subject to the (development) strategy of a company.
A part of comprehensive planning of the information system is often also the development of the company’s website, which is usually related to the company’s visual identity and strategy in terms of concept, design, and content and increasingly often includes multimedia elements (animations, videos, interactive applications).
The Multimedia and Design in Companies course will take you along the path of creating and strengthening basic and partially also advanced knowledge and skills from the field of media, multimedia, the so-called new (digital) media, and design in business environments. You will learn about the broader definition of the concept of media, study the connection between man, society, and technology, and take a look at the past and future use of media technologies and multimedia or new media operations.

6
Management Support Systems

Modern-day challenges require comprehensive decision-making. Experience shows that business management is complex and complicated. As our comprehension abilities are limited, we often simplify matters, which can be dangerous to a company or some business events and processes might surprise us.
