The programme aims to give students a broad introduction to a number of economic, legal and organisational issues in the business community. In addition to business issues, the programme also considers socio-economic aspects and the interaction between economics and business administration.  

In specific terms, students learn to analyse a company’s financial problems and issues and to develop business strategies. Students also learn about organisation, product development, sales, project management and innovation, and they will develop insight into the theories and methods used to understand companies’ internal and external relations.  

The programme brings together students who share a common interest in what goes on in companies, organisations and in society at large. Some students will be crazy about everything relating to stocks and bonds, others are mostly interested in management – but all students share a fundamental interest in business administration.

All semesters except for the fifth include all the compulsory courses within Economics and Business Administration. In the fifth semester, students can choose to specialise within one of eleven profiles, to create their own profile by choosing electives, or to study abroad at a business school or university outside Denmark. Students can choose from eleven profiles:
  • Business Analytics (Aarhus)
  • Business English and Culture (Aarhus)
  • Business Ethics and Management (Aarhus)
  • Business with China and Other Emerging Markets (Aarhus)
  • Communication Management (Aarhus)
  • Financial Management (Aarhus)
  • Global Business (Aarhus)
  • Innovation and Entrepreneurship (Aarhus)
  • Sustainable Business (Aarhus)
  • Global Marketing (Herning)
