Agriculture and environment Mathematics, natural- and computer science

Institution Aarhus University (AU)
Campus Aarhus
Duration 2 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 6750 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 0 EUR
Website http://kandidat.au.dk/en/agro-environmental-management/

Description

Students in the Agro-Environmental Management programme are out to change the world. Rather than just making minor changes to existing production systems, these students are out to rethink the entire production cycle by optimising production goals as well as environmental targets. They seek to develop sustainable pathways for every level of food production, to use new technologies to comply with increased regulation, and to eliminate waste from the entire production cycle. This approach is not about maximising production – it’s about balancing production with environmental concerns. 

Courses provide a strong theoretical background in subjects such as carbon and nutrient cycling and the agro-environmental management at farm and landscape scale. In the second year, students will have the opportunity to apply this knowledge in their thesis project.

Career Opportunities    

Graduates of this programme go on to work in advisory services, for city or regional administration, private companies, or NGOs. They may also find careers at the UN or work in independent consulting, offering assessment services. Students who do their thesis in the context of a specific company are often offered a job there. Many students go on to study for a PhD.

About the Degree

The programme looks at topics such as nutrient cycling and environmental management; environmental effects of various types of production; xenobiotics; use of natural resources; geographic information systems; environmental legislation and regulation; nature restoration; and climate change. 

These topics are of global relevance. Combined with the considerable Danish expertise and experience in this area, this means that the degree programme attracts students from all over the world. We therefore guarantee that, as a student on the Agro-Environmental Management MSc programme, you will be challenged and stimulated at both the scientific and social levels. In the course of the programme, each student will be connected with relevant research groups in connection with project work or their thesis. 
A mixture of Danish and international students provides an optimal environment for peer-to-peer learning. Danes can share their experience of working in a highly regulated industry with strong environmental protections, and international students can bring both problems and solutions from their home countries to the discussions, an opportunity that will prepare all students to work in a globalised world.

Agriculture and environment Mathematics, natural- and computer science

Institution Aarhus University (AU)
Campus Aarhus
Duration 2 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 6750 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 0 EUR
Website http://kandidat.au.dk/en/agrobiology/

Description

Developing solutions for healthy food production while decreasing environmental impact and increasing animal welfare is the main focus in the Agrobiology programme at Aarhus University. Topics of study are genetics, biotechnology, production systems, and the interaction of agriculture with nature, among others. The programme is broadly science-based with a focus on applicability and problem-solving, and takes an integrative approach to learning about the biology behind food production.

Career Opportunities    

Most students who complete this programme find employment in the private sector as advisers or in R&D. Other career possibilities include feed or supply, developing new plants, plant protection, teaching, and working with authorities to develop or enforce industry regulations.

About the Degree

The core of this programme is biology, with perspectives on sustainability, environmental impact, animal health and welfare, plant health, and product quality. Students can choose between specialisations including animal nutrition, plant nutrition, animal health and welfare, plant health, and pest management, or combine animal and plant sciences. Because this is a cross-disciplinary master’s, students can also choose courses from other academic programmes. 

Students will learn analytical and problem-solving skills, how to do research, and how to generate new knowledge. In this programme emphasis is placed as much on the academic and professional skills as on the applied skills.

International students make up roughly one-third of each class, providing students with international knowledge and perspectives and the possibility to learn about different environments – both academic and agricultural. Because agriculture industries and environmental impacts are international, it is natural to include different national perspectives in discussions about these topics. 

Denmark is an ideal place to study agriculture because of its huge food production industry, extensive agricultural research, and strict environmental regulations. International students gain the chance to learn from leaders in sustainable food production, and Danish students can learn about conditions outside Denmark.

Aarhus University’s research in agricultural sciences is cutting-edge and puts it in the front rank of agricultural science institutions worldwide. The core areas of research are: climate and natural resources, environment and bioenergy, organic farming, food quality, farm animal production, and plant production. 

Sustainability is a fundamental principle. The goal is to seek solutions that contribute to environmentally and economically sustainable development of the agricultural and food industries.

Animal Law 2018

Summer School of , 10 ECTS
Law, public administration, public order and safety

Institution Aarhus University (AU)
Campus Aarhus
Duration 2 weeks
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 1717 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 1246 EUR
Website http://www.au.dk/en/summeruniversity/courses/animallaw/

Description

What rights do societies afford to animals within their respective legal systems? This will be the main question dealt with during the summer course in Animal Law. Animal Law is an emerging field of law that explores the legal protection of the social and biological needs of animals. Legislation that protects, impacts, regulates, and controls animals has been an integral part of the legal system since the very early days. However, the distinct field now known as “animal law” is a relatively new development. It brings together statutes and cases from multiple fields of law that consider, at their core, the interests of animals or the interests of humans with respect to animals.

The unique summer course in Animal Law takes place at one of Europe’s most renown universities in the charming student city of Aarhus, which offers the perfect mix of a small town charm and a cosmopolitan city. The course will give a comprehensive overview on the fundamental elements of the protection of animals in the legal system. After completion, participants will have a comprehension of how laws on animals work in this specific and novel material; i.e. how to acquire and apply critical knowledge for anyone interested in working as a lawyer or a consultant in the area.

Arab and Islamic Studies

Arab and Islamic Studies

Master (2 years) of Arts in Arab and Islamic Studies, 120 ECTS
Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts

Institution Aarhus University (AU)
Campus Aarhus
Duration 2 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 4000 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 0 EUR
Website http://kandidat.au.dk/en/arab-and-islamic-studies/

Description

Islam is Denmark’s – and indeed Western Europe’s – second-largest religion. The days are gone when it made sense to study the Arab and Islamic worlds as a distant “other”. Arab communities are to be found within Europe as well as in the Arab world, and Islam is now a Western religion as well as an Arab one. The MA in Arab and Islamic Studies therefore focuses on today’s globalised and transnational realities and on Islam and Muslims in Europe as well as in the Arab world. 

Career Opportunities  

All Western organisations that work with the Arab world or with Arab or Muslim communities in the West – from travel agencies to security services – need people with expertise in Arab and Islamic studies. There are opportunities to work in local government or aid organisations in the public sector, and some private-sector opportunities in the Western firms that operate within the Arab world. Previous graduates from the programme have also gone on to pursue careers in journalism, academia, and politics. 

About the Degree

The MA in Arab and Islamic Studies is taught by faculty members from the Arab and Islamic Studies Research Network, a transdisciplinary research unit for all Aarhus University scholars interested in Islamic cultures and societies both within the Islamic world and transregionally. The research unit aims to provide a stimulating research milieu for both senior and junior researchers by promoting discussion and exchange as well as arranging events. 

The programme has two lines, A and B, both of which require students to complete courses with a total value of 120 ECTS credits. Line B, which is designed for students who wish to take an additional subject as a qualification for teaching in the Danish high-school system, will not normally be of interest to international students. 

The Arab and Islamic Studies programme is small and the study environment is informal, with close contact between students and teachers. There are also opportunities to attend research seminars and guest lectures, including those organised by the student-run Arab Studies Society. 

During the third semester, the student may choose between a profile course, an international elective subject, or an internship/field study. Many students spend this semester at one of the universities in the Arab world with which Aarhus has an exchange agreement, such as the American University of Beirut.

Description

Measurements ow in every day from satellites in space and from observatories all over the world. Students on the MSc in Astronomy programme are actively involved in research and in the discussion of new discoveries and theories. Students study new planets orbiting other stars, examine the structure and development of the stars through seismological studies, and explore the earliest stages of the development of the universe, working with computer modelling or measurements from state-of-the-art telescopes and satellites. 

Career Opportunities  

As a graduate of the MSc programme in astronomy, a wide range of career opportunities will be open to you. A number of graduates work in the private sector, for example in software companies where the astronomer’s skills in image-processing and analysing large amounts of data are an important resource. Some astronomy graduates work in research positions in the private sector or in public research institutions such as universities, the European Southern Observatory (ESO) or the European Space Agency (ESA).

About the Degree

Teaching on the astronomy programme is greatly influenced by research, both in the courses and the thesis work, as the lecturers are active researchers. In this context, students benefit from the down-to-earth, informal relationship between the academic staff and students. Each student is associated with a group of researchers for their thesis work in year two, and there is wide scope for specialisation, both within the Department of Physics and Astronomy and (thanks to the department’s close collaborations with other centres) with researchers from the European Southern Observatory, the European Space Agency, and NASA.

The MSc in Astronomy programme is open to students with a BSc degree in physics or another BSc degree in science with substantial physics and mathematics content. The programme is challenging and research-oriented, and reflects the interests of the private sector, research institutions and the public sector. It is also flexible, and can accommodate the interests and profile of the individual student. 

Students can specialise within (for example) cosmology, star development or helioseismology; they can work with theory, and they can carry out astronomical observations. The programme also qualifies students for a career in research: students may apply for admission to the university’s PhD programme either during the first year of the MSc programme or on completion of the thesis. 

The Department of Physics and Astronomy aims to create a good student environment both in terms of working methods and in the social environment and facilities. When you write your master’s thesis in one of the department’s research groups, you will be given your own desk in an office that you will share with other students.

Website http://www.au.dk/en/summeruniversity/courses/bankstresstesting/
The financial crisis demonstrates how rapidly market conditions can subject banks to significant strain or even their collapse, hence the need for identifying, testing, and reducing vulnerabilities at banks and other financial institutions. For this reason, stress testing is occupying a prominent place in the risk management areas, macro-prudential regulation and financial supervision of banks and financial institutions. The course aims to provide a solid knowledge of stress testing methodologies using severe scenarios and a set of benchmark assumptions as an important tool in macro-prudential frameworks, risk-management practices, and financial supervision at banks and financial institutions.

Through the use of case studies during class time, the course covers both bank and individual portfolio stress testing techniques, as well as macro stress testing. The participants will be able to develop and carry out a comprehensive stress test programme throughout the development of tools and extensive comparison with real-life banking cases and practical examples in order to test the strength and resilience of portfolios, banks and financial systems as a whole in the worst scenarios and under sudden shocks. To this end, the participants will access to the data they need and work during class time to make informed decisions about the resilience of banks as part of an ongoing process to identify and reduce vulnerabilities.

To address the challenges of big data in modern biology and biomedicine, a bioinformatician must combine practical and theoretical skills in statistical modelling and computer programming with a deep knowledge of biology and biomedicine. This programme gives students these skill-sets. 

Teaching is greatly influenced by the innovative bioinformatics research taking place at Aarhus University, where all lecturers are also active researchers. AU has strong research groups within many areas of bioinformatics, including evolutionary bioinformatics (the study of how and in what way genomes or hereditary material in organisms develop over the course of time) and medical bioinformatics (the study of the correlations between diseases and genetic factors). 
The bioinformatics programme at AU is based at the Bioinformatics Research Centre (BiRC), which focuses on the challenges involved in large-scale genomics and population genetics, including statistical modelling, algorithmic development, machine learning, and high-performance computing.

Bioinformatics students are affiliated with the Bioinformatics Research Centre, a vibrant community with lots of regular academic and social activities for both students and staff. Students meet their peers from the other AU science programmes through joint lectures, and participate in activities with students from programmes such as biology or computer science. A number of student organisations also arrange academic activities, as well as excursions, celebrations and social get-togethers.

Would you like to gain a profound knowledge of the impart of your own national law on the use and distribution of digital services and digital contracts and a reasonable knowledge of the international or EU-regulations on the use and distribution of digital services and digital contracts?
Would it interest you to discuss these legal issues with students from a foreign (German) university and to compare solutions in different national laws? Would you appreciate to be able to explain and discuss legal problems and issues regarding the use and distribution of digital services and on digital contracts within a specific chosen topic and, in addition, in cross-border trade?

Digital technologies are changing our societies with a lot of benefits for our quality of life and economic growth. But all that glitters is not gold: New technologies present new challenges. But the differences in the member states civil law still inhibit that more services are purchased and used cross-border. In this summer-school we’ll bring together students from Aarhus and Kiel to discuss how their national law gives answers to questions arising from the use of digital contracts and services. The course is open for all law students at the master level.

Climate change is an omnipresent topic in media (e.g. The Guardian: ‘The climate crisis is already here – but no one’s telling us’), politics (e.g. Donald Trump: ‘The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive’), science (e.g. MA Bradford et al., ‘Managing uncertainty in soil carbon feedbacks to climate change’, Nature Climate Change 6, 2016) and business (e.g. McKinsey: ‘How companies can adapt to climate change: Taking effective action can turn risk into competitive advantage’). Despite this attention, climate change remains one of the heaviest burdens on the international community. Due to the differences between developed and developing countries and particular national interests, achieving a binding and effective international agreement seems close to impossible. That does not however mean that we are in a regulatory deadlock. Where international law stumbles, national law and regulation developed by non-state actors, primarily businesses, take over. As a result, there is a web of national and international, public and private, and mandatory and voluntary regulation tackling the complex issue of climate change.

Cognitive neuroscience is an emerging interdisciplinary field of study, which is concerned with the neural substrate of mental processes. It is at the intersection of cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, and neuroscience, combining theories of cognitive psychology with modern neuroscience methodologies.  The aim of this course is to give students an understanding of modern theories of brain organization and functioning and how these relate to cognitive processes in both healthy and pathological populations. A specific focus this year will be on the bi-directional relationship between psychosocial factors and diseases. Thus, we will investigate mechanisms of various diseases including heart disease, cancer, mental diseases and the common cold.

This will give the students an in-depth understanding of the strengths and shortcomings of a wide variety of approaches in the investigation of brain-cognition processes. Our International guest lecturer will be Professor Yori Gidron. Yori Gidron trained in Israel and later in Canada and has taught in Israel, Portugal, the Netherlands, France and the United Kingdom. He is now a professor at the Free Dutch-speaking University of Brussels in Behavioral Medicine studying health and biological psychology and cancer. In his research, he has focused on the function of the vagus nerve and has shown in several high impact studies that the activity of this nerve plays an important role in the prediction of the outcome of the cancer.  The course will be very interactive and include ongoing search tasks and debates.

Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 4000 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 0 EUR
Website http://bachelor.au.dk/en/cognitivescience/

Description

Cognitive science is the study of the human mind and how it shapes and is shaped by our experiences and interactions. Students of cognitive science are introduced to the basic cognitive processes underlying our conscious and unconscious perceptions and actions – how we make decisions, how we use language to communicate and share emotions, how we interact socially with others. This involves learning scientific theories as well as engaging in practical exercises in which students use computer programming and statistics to design and carry out their own investigations of the human mind, the brain and human behaviour.

Career Opportunities

On completing the BSc in Cognitive Science, you will be in a position to choose from a range of master’s programmes offering specialisation in topics such as cognitive science, neuroscience, information studies, or corporate communication. The interdisciplinary profile of the programme, combined with the concrete skills acquired in data acquisition, programming and analysis, make graduates sought after by employers across a wide range of industries, including IT development, product design, neuroscience and management.

About the Degree

The mind is hugely complex, and no single discipline can hope to exhaustively understand it. Cognitive science combines theories, methods and insights from a range of disciplines such as neuroscience, philosophy, linguistics, anthropology and psychology in a coordinated effort to investigate human behaviour and the human mind. 

Teaching is organised around lectures and group sessions in which students participate in discussions, make presentations, and work in study groups. Students also take part in practical lab work in which they learn to analyse data from brain scans, behavioural experiments, and large text databases using computer programming and statistics. The Cognitive Science programme is embedded in a rich research environment surrounding Aarhus University’s Centre for Functionally Integrative Neuroscience, its Interacting Minds Centre, and its Centre for Semiotics. Students can attend research seminars and learn about new findings on an almost daily basis.

The Department of Linguistics, Cognitive Science and Semiotics is one of the nine departments at the School of Communication and Culture at the Faculty of Arts.

Description

Students in the MSc in Computer Engineering can specialise in relevant fields of study connected with system and instrument development involving software, hardware, and communication technology. Depending on your chosen specialisation, upon completion of the degree you will be awarded the title of either Master of Science in Engineering (Computer Engineering) or Master of Science and Technology (Computer Engineering). 

Your teachers will be researchers from the Department of Engineering and Department of Computer Science, as well as lecturers and development engineers at the Aarhus University School of Engineering. The degree programme thus benefits from R&D projects carried out in all three environments. 

Career Opportunities    

The MSc in Computer Engineering prepares students for the national and international job market. Our graduates have found jobs across a range of fields and institutions. There is considerable demand for IT graduates in areas such as instrument development engineering. Many graduates are working as software architects or developers of large instruments and systems, or have become software developers or project managers for large IT systems.
 
Graduates with theoretical depth and analytical working methods are in considerable demand among companies. Graduates from this programme will have learnt to combine the theoretically strong knowledge of a computer scientist with the more practically oriented and innovative approach of an engineer.

About the Degree

The first year of the MSc consists of two basic study packages and two specialised study packages. All students take the basic study packages, but you can choose your own specialised study packages from the options listed on page 2. Each package is worth 15 ECTS credits. The second year consists of an elective programme and a thesis. 

The MSc programme offers specialised study packages in the following fields: embedded systems, wireless communication, distributed systems decision, signal processing, and software engineering. 

At Aarhus University, you will be in close contact with lecturers and researchers in a way that is rarely experienced at other universities. The academic staff are readily accessible if you need clarification of the course material. Part of the teaching is in the form of lectures that introduce new angles on the course material, and theoretical and practical exercises take place in small groups in which issues are studied in depth. 

At Aarhus University you will be part of an extensive engineering environment with more than 3,000 engineering students. So you will have ample opportunity to get involved in both academic and social student associations with your fellow students.

    Modern companies find themselves in a fast-paced, highly threatening, and increasingly global environment that forces them to continually redefine their markets, restructure their operations, and modify their business models. The abilities to think and act entrepreneurially and to innovate are becoming an increasingly important source of competitive advantage. In spite of widespread recognition of the imperative for companies to behave entrepreneurially, most corporations struggle in these efforts.

    Traditional management practices emphasize safe, slow, and steady growth within hierarchical organization structures. Entrepreneurial management, on the other hand, focuses on rapid growth as the top priority, accepts risk as part of this growth philosophy, and implements flat organizational structures with multiple informal networks. In this course, we will discuss managerial techniques and organizational structures that promote entrepreneurial behaviors in a corporate context.
    This course focuses on the creation and management of entrepreneurial initiatives within established corporations.

    The course will concentrate on what managers do to foster climates that facilitate internal corporate entrepreneurship. We will discuss sound venturing strategies regarding ”what kind” of new businesses corporations choose to pursue and “how” those ventures should be structured and managed for maximizing performance.

    Corporate governance deals with how the suppliers of capital ensure that corporate managers make efficient use of that capital and provide investors with a return commensurate with the risk of the investment. Better governance lowers the cost of capital and leads to greater financial development and higher economic growth. Consequently, countries are searching for the set of governance practices, rules and regulations that will most effectively promote economic development. This course will study the main corporate governance mechanisms, such as, legal and regulatory protection, the market for corporate control, ownership structure, executive compensation policies and practices, the board of directors, and shareholder activism. We will analyze how corporate governance practices differ across countries and how they affect firm value and the development of capital markets.

    Human rights: We all have them, we’ve all heard of them, and we know that there are laws to protect them. But we hear equally often about war crimes, refugee crises, persecution of sexual minorities and children suffering starvation and preventable diseases. So does the international human rights law legal system work – and why or why not? This course is designed to give you an understanding of the international human rights legal system and the challenges it faces.

    The focus of the course is on the international level and importantly, on current issues facing the international system. This means that you will be working actively with cases, examples, and issues that governments, lawyers, NGOs and the United Nations are also discussing, in addition to background cases to help you understand how the system has worked in the past.

    The aim is to help you think critically – from a legal perspective – about the messages you see and hear about human rights in the media, and about the international system generally. In addition to an introduction to the international legal system, human rights bodies, and substantive rights in international law, the course will offer three related, specialised topics through which to examine international human rights law in practice: international criminal law, refugee law, and transitional justice. The precise cases and examples to be used will be determined according to current events. An introduction to international law or human rights is an advantage, though not a requirement for taking this course. We look forward to seeing you in class, summer 2017!

    Insurance companies bring security to society by offering protection against financial losses. Through the pooling of similar risks, insurers allow to trade uncertainty for certainty by transferring the risk from individuals facing the loss to the insurer, in exchange for a premium. Non-life (e.g. motor, fire, liability), life and health insurers work in a data driven business, and are constantly confronted with the challenges created by rapidly increasing technical and computer facilities for data collection, storage and analysis. Predictive modeling (or: insurance analytics) is a cornerstone of the insurance industry.  

    This course explains the working principles of insurance and the many tasks within insurance where predictive modeling is relevant.

    Website http://www.au.dk/en/summeruniversity/courses/digitalbusinessinnovationandsocialmedia/
    The course explores two key areas of knowledge related to digital economies. Firstly, from a broad perspective, it focuses on understanding how business professionals use digital technologies, platforms and infrastructures for fostering innovation in business models, products and services. Students learn how to conceptualise and identify key digital technologies, platforms and infrastructures, and how to adopt and adapt these solutions to particular organisational needs to foster business innovation. Mobile technologies, cloud computing, e-commerce, big data analytics, apps and cognitive computing are among the topics to be discussed in the course.

    Secondly, from a more specialised perspective, the course focuses on explaining how social media in particular are used in organisational contexts for knowledge management, collaboration, innovation and marketing. Students are prepared to identify and choose social media tools (such as social networks, blogs, mini-blogs, mashups, file sharing, wiki tools, forums, reputation tools, social bookmarking etc.) which are aligned with corporate business strategies. Special attention is given to discuss examples related to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Wikipedia, SlideShare, Flickr, Google Maps, YouTube, De.li.cio.us, Technorati, Amazon and eBay rating systems, among others. In the sphere of social media, the course also discusses how social and organisational structures and institutions affect the outcomes on using social technologies, and the ethical implications of interacting through these interfaces. The course also explores the risks of social media, from damaging reputation to breaking privacy rules and risking liabilities for mismanagement of information, and risk management approaches for social media.

    The course blends theoretical frameworks, academic research and industry case studies and reports, preparing students to understand how digital technologies enable business innovation and knowledge creation and sharing. Through lectures, presentations and workshops, students explore relevant theories and case studies to understand digital business innovation in general and social media tools in particular. Students thus have an opportunity to develop knowledge and skills to be used to solve real problems involving digital business innovation and social media solutions.

    Recent demographic changes coupled with technology progress places diversity as a central issue to modern corporations. Not only that: individuals are faced with differences more frequently and groups and work teams are gradually becoming more heterogeneous. It is also clear that innovation, problem solving and decision making quality can benefit from increased diversity. In spite of these facts, the effects of diversity in the workplace are not undisputable and evidence amounts suggesting the challenge of managing differences at all levels – individual, teams and organizations. Moreover, individuals do not respond in the same way to gender, race, age and other differences and the impact of diversity varies accordingly.
    In this course we will discuss the business case for workplace diversity and how to incorporate the differences in managerial decisions.

    The aim is to understand not only diversity issues and effects but also to explore how and when a diverse workforce has the potential to benefit both employees and organizations. The course is not only an opportunity to learn about diversity but also a chance to improve individual skills to deal with an ever-growing diverse context.

    Description

    Financial markets are vital to the current and future stability of firms, government bodies, nations – and of course to individuals and to society as a whole. The MSc in Finance will provide you with the knowledge and competencies you need to work in the world of international finance. 

    The MSc in Finance fuses rigorous academic research with applied skills and competencies. Focusing on global finance, the programme will prepare you for today’s highly developed and integrated financial markets, in which graduates with degrees in finance are increasingly sought at the highest international level. 

    Financial decisions are to a large extent based on empirical observations. Thus acquiring the skills to apply econometric methods is part of our programme. In our experience, students gain much more from their studies when they have an interest in quantitative methods.

    The MSc in Finance is a unique programme that allows you to work with internationally respected academic staff in an international environment. In the first year the programme addresses the key concepts of asset pricing, corporate finance, and bank management so as to familiarise you with the challenges of the financial markets. In the third semester, you can choose elective courses at Aarhus University, AU Summer University or (as an exchange student) at one of 300 partner universities abroad. You also have the possibility to combine electives with an internship to strengthen your practical skill-set. Finally, the fourth semester is devoted to the master’s thesis.

    The MSc in Finance is dedicated to the highest-quality teaching in an informal and egalitarian learning environment. Students are always welcome to approach the teaching staff, and they are expected to participate actively in the classroom. Collaborating in small groups on projects gives students the chance to make the most of the international student environment.

        Description

        The MSc programme in Business-to-Business Marketing and Purchasing focuses on the managerial challenges related to operating in industrial markets. It prepares students for a wide range of careers, mainly in the private sector. Students on the programme gain skills in areas such as business-to-business marketing and strategy, purchasing management, relationship management, innovation, pricing, and the regulation of cooperation in business markets.

        Career Opportunities  

        The programme’s focus on upstream as well as downstream activities means that students will gain a deep knowledge not only of sales/ marketing and purchasing, but also of how to develop and manage relationships with customers as well as suppliers. This dual understanding makes graduates perfect for job positions such as key account manager (on the selling side) or category manager (on the buying side) – positions that hold many future career possibilities. Over time, graduates may develop careers within sales and marketing or purchasing, or they may choose to alternate between the two. With their knowledge and understanding of the many relationships between the firm and its various stakeholders, graduates will be well suited to a range of general management positions.

        About the Degree

        Firms operating in business markets cater to the needs of other firms rather than private households, and in so doing they face specific challenges and opportunities. Business-to-business activities constitute the main part of any developed economy, and managers who are able to understand, develop and manage such activities – upstream as well as downstream – are an important asset to firms.

        The first semester of the programme provides students with a deep understanding of how business markets work through courses in buyer– supplier relationships and networks as well as the innovation and development of these relationships. The prerequisite courses, which provide students with a solid academic foundation and prepare them for the specialisation courses of the second semester, also include general marketing theory and research methods. The specialisation courses that follow cover topics such as business-to-business purchasing management, business-to-business sales and marketing management, pricing, and the regulation of marketing and purchasing cooperation
        .

        Aarhus BSS hosts a rich and varied programme of student activities, both study-related and social. Our many student associations host events ranging from lectures and company events to career days and sports days, Friday bars and celebrations. There is plenty of scope for meeting and networking with like-minded people, discovering new areas of academic interest, and socialising with fellow students.

        Description

        From simple exports to foreign direct investment or participation in border-crossing networks, economic markets are becoming increasingly globalised. Consequently, today’s firms have to be able to adapt and respond to the changing character of the social, political, and technological forces at work in the global economic markets. The MSc in International Business deals with the internationalisation of businesses and related international activities. 

        In the first year, the programme addresses the key concepts of internationalisation, organisation, and management of foreign operations in order to familiarise the student with the challenges of economic globalisation and how to handle them. The emergence of global enterprises, emerging markets, global sourcing, the development of intercultural competencies, and the organisation of multinational corporations are covered, alongside the analytical tools necessary to research these topics. In the third semester, you can choose elective courses at Aarhus University, AU Summer University or (as an exchange student) at one of 300 partner universities abroad. You also have the possibility to combine electives with an internship to strengthen your practical skill-set. Finally, the fourth semester is devoted to the master’s thesis.

        Career Opportunities  

          The MSc in International Business offers the knowledge and skills required to take part in processes and business activities that span multiple national contexts. Hence many alumni choose to work in an international business context or in international service companies offering consultancy services.

          About the Degree

          The MSc in International Business is dedicated to the highest-quality teaching in an informal and egalitarian learning environment.

          Globalisation and internationalisation are affecting every nation, every level of industry, and virtually every business. One result is that demand is growing for economics and business graduates with an international background. The MSc in Finance and International Business will not only give you the professional qualifications for making strategic decisions in difficult and complex financial areas, but also experience and competency in performing in an international context. 

          Career Opportunities   

          The MSc in Finance and International Business gives graduates the knowledge and skills required to take part in the processes of finance and business activities that span multiple national contexts. After graduating, most of our students pursue careers as financial managers, international controllers, international business strategists, business entrepreneurs, managers of foreign subsidiaries, or experts on mergers and acquisitions.

          About the Degree

          During the first year, key areas of study include the internationalisation process of companies entering foreign markets and the challenges that companies face in an international environment. Additionally, strategic and financial decision-making, financial reporting and accounting issues, and the theories of corporate finance and supporting empirical evidence are covered in the first two semesters. The academic content is combined with an applied approach in which the skills and competencies vital for handling these complex issues are developed. In the third semester, you can choose elective courses at Aarhus University, AU Summer University or (as an exchange student) at one of 300 partner universities abroad. You also have the possibility to combine electives with an internship to strengthen your practical skill-set. Finally, the fourth semester is devoted to the master‘s thesis.

          The MSc in Finance and International Business is dedicated to the highest-quality teaching in an informal and egalitarian learning environment. Students are always welcome to approach the teaching staff, and they are expected to participate actively in the classroom. Collaborating in small groups on projects gives students the chance to make the most of the international student environment.

The programme highlights the role and performance of the management accountant, both locally and in an international context. 

            Career Opportunities    

              Graduates from the Management Accounting and Control programme are qualified for a variety of different types of job. Many have found jobs as controllers across a range of different organisations, and some have become business consultants. Our graduates have taken up jobs both in Denmark and abroad, and their attractive skill-set allows them to climb their chosen career ladder rapidly. 

              About the Degree

              The Management Accounting and Control programme seeks to equip students with a range of relevant management accounting concepts and theories so as to build a solid foundation for practice-oriented decision-making. 

              The programme aims to develop management technologies and test theories within production, reporting, analysis, and managerial use of financial as well as non-financial information. All management technologies and theories are intended for use in communicating financial events in the organisation, influencing decisions on resource allocation, and improving insight and feedback to the management of the organisation.

              The programme applies a variety of teaching methods and types of evaluation. Students can expect traditional lectures, lectures with group exercises, and lectures dedicated to casework. AU encourages and expects student participation – because those who work are those who learn. 

              An internship during the third semester is also recommended. This gives students the chance to experience and address some of the theoretical problems discussed during the first and second semester. This creates an appetite for more theory and is the foundation for writing a solid thesis.

              Aarhus BSS hosts a rich and varied programme of activities for you as a student, both study-related and social. Our many student associations host events ranging from lectures and company events to career days and sports days, Friday bars and celebrations, so there is plenty of scope for meeting and networking with like-minded people, discovering new areas of academic interest, and socialising with fellow students.

Organisations today increasingly use a set of techniques and tools to transform raw data into meaningful and useful information, to improve decision-making, to cut costs, to identify new business opportunities, and to pinpoint inefficient business processes that are ripe for re-engineering.

              Career Opportunities  

                The MSc in Business Intelligence offers an excellent foundation for working in the specific analysis of organisational performance for decision-making support, whether internally or as an external consultant.

                About the Degree

                The first year of the MSc programme combines analytical tools with rigorous academic content, skills geared towards self-management, and communication skills. In the third semester, you can choose elective courses at Aarhus University, AU Summer University or (as an exchange student) at one of 300 partner universities abroad. You also have the possibility to combine electives with an internship to strengthen your practical skill-set. Finally, the fourth semester is devoted to the master’s thesis.

                The MSc in Business Intelligence is dedicated to the highest-quality teaching in an informal and egalitarian learning environment. Students are always welcome to approach the teaching staff, and they are expected to participate actively in the classroom. Collaborating in small groups for project work gives students the chance to make the most of the international student environment.

                Description

                The two-year MSc programme in Economics and Management gives students an in-depth knowledge of a range of economics and management disciplines. The programme is flexible, giving students the opportunity to specialise in a specific field or in a combination of economics and management topics.

                Economics and Management graduates are in very high demand on the labour market. Many graduates achieve top executive positions in the corporate world (e.g. in financial institutions and consulting firms) or management advisory positions in the public sector (e.g. in ministries and local authorities). 

                Moreover, the international character of the programme allows graduates to work with equal ease in both Danish and international organisations, consulting firms, ministries, government agencies and financial institutions – including commercial banks, mortgage institutions, pension funds, insurance companies and investment banks. Students who are interested in pursuing an academic career may also progress to the PhD programme. The department offers a special transitional arrangement for honours students who wish to continue their research training in the PhD programme.

                About the Degree

                The world has become more and more connected since the appearance of the modern Internet in the early 1990s. The Internet allows buyers and sellers to match to each other directly or with the help of intermediaries. In a more connected world, buyers (sellers) can reach more sellers (buyers) and intermediaries can reach more buyers and sellers at the same time. It is not clear whether such change strengthens or weakens the bargaining power of the parties involved. Graph theory and (non-cooperative and cooperative) game theory are introduced in this course to shed light on these issues.

                Graph theory can also help us understand link analysis and Web search. Building on this, game theory is used to provide an analysis of how sponsored search markets work. Other topics covered by the course include: information cascade, network effects, power laws, and rich-get-richer phenomenon.

                Description

                English is the language of globalisation. It is the mother tongue of around 350 million people, and an even larger number speak it as a second language. The MA in English opens career opportunities in important national and international sectors associated with the cultural and creative industries and in the field of teaching. 

                Career Opportunities  

                  Numerous jobs in the private sector as well as in public institutions require advanced English-language skills and analytical knowledge of the English-speaking world. You will acquire these competencies in the Master’s degree in English. You will be using English at a high international level and will gain in-depth knowledge of the history, culture, and social conditions of the English-speaking world.
                   
                  Whether you seek a career in the private or non-profit sectors or as a teacher, comprehensive knowledge of the English language and the cultures and societies of English-speaking countries is important. In many situations, a high level of English-language proficiency is indispensable. With a Master’s degree in English, you will have the knowledge, skills, and competencies necessary to work in the global economy.

                  About the Degree

                  In the Master’s programme, you can specialise with a combination of obligatory and elective courses as you build on your BA and work with contemporary topics in one of the three theme areas: English-language literature, linguistics, and the history, society, and culture of the English-speaking world. 

                  Whether your passion is for Anglophone literature, language, history, or all things English, the degree programme allows you to immerse yourself in the latest developments within your field of interest. You will engage in depth with the issue of what constitutes evidence within the fields of literature, linguistics, culture, and history. You will gain greater insight into standard English, its variations, and the changes that have shaped it around the world, as well as myths about language itself. You will gain an understanding of the way cultural phenomena can influence literature, and how literature in turn can influence culture. Approaching literary works with new reading techniques and theories, you will work with creative processes, storytelling and adaptation, and learn how creativity can be commercialised. Working with cultural heritage, social media, film, and other elements of visual culture, and engaging deeply with current concerns such as identity politics, gender and media, and transnationalism, you will learn how to apply historical, social, and cultural knowledge within contemporary markets. You will be equipped with knowledge, skills, and competencies that are valued in both private and non-profit sectors.

                  The objective of this course is to provide a better understanding of corporate finance issues confronting entrepreneurial firms. The issues will be explored by considering the differences between firms for which the standard corporate finance model is appropriate and firms for which the investment and financing issues are interdependent. An objective of this class is to further develop the framework used for thinking about finance issues and develop experience in applying this framework to making useful business decisions. Although the learning objectives will be focused on entrepreneurial ventures, they have direct application in more standard corporate, investments, insurance, and banking finance. This class will take a pragmatic look at some of the financial issues confronting entrepreneurial ventures. The course uses an existing actual entrepreneurial venture to examine issues that arise with entrepreneurial finance.

                  In 2015, the course evaluated the potential market size for an anti-infective that addressed potential complications associated with diabetic foot ulcers. In 2014, the course examined the license value of an anti-infective that addressed infections with implanted orthopedic medical devices. In 2013, the class examined a Danish energy venture that uses energy from the sun to decrease the energy costs of cooling buildings by taking advantage of thermodynamic properties of vacuums. Previous year’s projects included analyses of products addressing the European and North American bovine mastitis markets and products addressing the biofouling of ship’s hulls (biofouling costs the US Navy at least $1 billion each year, likely more for Maersk shipping). By the conclusion of this course, you should be able to:
                  • Forecast Financial Needs ‐ Use simulation and scenario analysis to analyze strategic financial options available to a firm, identify and communicate the optimal option, and estimate and describe a firm’s financial needs based on the recommended course of action.
                  • Identify and Evaluate Real Options – Qualitatively identify real options available with firms or projects, identify the parameters that are important to the valuation of the options, indicate how these options will affect the value of the project or the firm, and use quantitative techniques to provide approximate valuations for these options.
                  • Value the Venture – Understand and be able to explain the difference between the venture valuation models and the standard corporate finance evaluation model from both the investor and entrepreneur’s points of views.
                  • Identify situations where the theories of financial management can be applied to decisions.
                  • Recommend and justify decisions, including decisions arising from ambiguous or unfamiliar information.
                  • Orally present your analysis, recommendations, and justification.

                  Ever since the establishment of the European Community in 1957 the regulation of companies and their activities has been an important part of the establishment of an integrated market and the visions for European company law have been extensive. The ambition of a common European company law was predominant in the early days, but even though this far-reaching ambition has changed, the development of national company law today is largely driven by developments in EU company law. 
                  The primary objective of the course is to give the students a knowledge and understanding of the framework of EU company law and of how EU company law regulates and affects national company law within the Member States. This involves an introduction to the ways in which EU law influence national company law. Such an influence can be direct as a consequence of the EU Treaty and directives, and it can be indirect as a consequence of a possible regulatory competition (Delaware syndrome).

                  Secondly, the aim is to give the students an introduction to the context of EU company law of today. The right of establishment is secured in the EU Treaty and has on several occasions been proven by the European Court of Justice, also a number of company law directives have been implemented in national company law, and finally EU regulations is part of EU company law. Various EU company law initiatives and legislation will be studied and discussed during the lessons. The course will cover the harmonization process so far, it is effects and difficulties. The course will address current challenges and the legislative proposals. Analyses of case material from the European Court of Justice will be an element of the course.Based on this the students should attain an understanding of the cross-border mobility of European companies along with the basic rights and commitments that companies meet when they enter the legal systems of other Member States.

                  Description

                  Europe is becoming more and more important. As Europeans become more closely connected, the EU makes decisions that affect every European nation, every level of industry, and virtually every business. However, this view of international relations is constantly challenged and discussed. In European Studies, you will learn to analyse both the problems and the possibilities inherent in the European collaboration – and in Europe in general. You will deal not only with EU institutions, but also with analyses of cultural, social, and political processes in Europe – and the question of what Europe really is.   

                  The Master’s programme in European Studies is for anyone with a bachelor’s degree in a relevant social science or humanities subject who would like to add a European perspective to their education. The aim of the degree programme is to give you general knowledge of European conditions, political as well as historical and cultural, and to build on the insight you gained in your BA studies.

                  Career Opportunities    

                  With a Master’s in European Studies, you are qualified to analyse, understand, and work not only with European diversity, but also everything that brings Europeans together. European Studies is an interdisciplinary and multicultural degree programme, and therefore prepares you to work in international organisations, large corporations, and in public administration.

                  About the Degree

                  The degree programme is aimed at students with a solid academic background who would like to add a European dimension to their education. You will acquire knowledge of European affairs to supplement your bachelor’s degree. The European dimension is useful whether you wish to work with political institutions, international organisations, the business community, the media, in teaching, or with cultural understanding. This is also an international Master’s programme in which your fellow students will have come from all over the world. All instruction therefore takes place in English, and students speak English both during class and after hours.

                  The Department of Global Studies provides a distinct approach to understanding our contemporary world by combining language-based area studies of Brazil, China, Japan, India, and Russia with European and International Studies and a global perspective. As an academic field, Global Studies was born only in the late 1990s and it grew exponentially in importance in the 2000s. Its main elements find their root cause in the insight that contemporary global conditions cannot be studied only in terms of states and the interactions. Taking a holistic approach, Global Studies takes history, cultural studies and anthropology just as seriously as political science, sociology and economics.

                  In this course, participants will explore Aarhus 2017 related events to learn about how cultural analysis might be enacted in 21st century settings where digital and analog forms blur, where local and global networks collide, and because of this, studying any phenomenon is therefore a complex challenge. Through a combination of field observations, data gathering, modelling, analysis, and prototyping the aim is to introduce and develop new tools and methods for understanding and communicating about cultural experiences in the age of Big Data. Particularly, we are interested in how the production and collection of data has become an inevitable part of any cultural institution, yet it is unclear what counts as data, what the data is (or can be) actually used for, and how various stakeholders deal with broken data, missing data, surplus data, etc. Cities and regions, cultural institutions and organisations, as well as specific industries and economies have a strong interest in developing new models for organising and making sense of such data.

                  This course is multidisciplinary in nature and scope and provides broad perspectives on topics and issues central to Strategic Fashion Design and product development processes, with emphasis on the relationships between design, experience, body, society and buying behavior.
                   In the field of fashion, interdisciplinarity, as a collaborative practice, is a prerequisite for transforming design illusions into tangible products. The concept of illusion is ambiguous; the design team intends to materialize an illusion into a tangible product and the customer pursues products capable of materializing her illusion of self and identity. Customer’s illusions are shaped by preferences influenced by an array of factors relating to culture, experience, aesthetics, body characteristics, well-being and affiliation. To predict and address current and future customer expectations with innovative Fashion Design strategies and product solutions, the course applies a holistic and transdisciplinary approach addressing the diversity entailed in customers´expectations. By adopting a transdisciplinary approach, we move beyond merely blending disciplines; rather, we link concepts and skills in a real-world context, and promote depth of understanding as well as adaptability of skills needed in successful product innovation.   The term ‘trans’ refers to across the disciplines, between the disciplines and beyond and outside all disciplines. By means of knowledge building through empirical research, workshops, reflection and decision-making activities, the course expose the variety and possibilities for new design, engineering and technology perspectives in business contexts.  The course covers the following areas:   
                  • Trend identification; theory and methods
                  • Body, form, function and aesthetics influences on fashion and buying behavior 
                  • User driven methodologies and approaches; theory and practice
                  • Scenario building; data analysis based on own research
                  • Design Thinking
                  • Communication; strategy and product technology
                  • Cultural and social perspectives in relation to the Fashion System

                  Are you interested in gaining an insight into the latest challenges and solutions related to food? Do you want to strengthen your international network? Would you like to get an insight into why Denmark is leading in innovation in food - then why not come to Aarhus in your summer vacation and experience the Danish food culture?
                  In close collaboration with representatives from both small and large food companies in Denmark, the Department of Food Science at Aarhus University offers a summer course with focus on food.

                  The course will be held in August 2017 in Aarhus Denmark. This summer course will give you an insight into a highly innovative and leading food ecosystem in Europe.
                  Said in 2017 about the course:  “The F&I Summer School has given me insight in the complexities regarding food production and -products. We were introduced to both theoretical and practical learning methods with involvements of industry partners. By the end of the F&I Summer School, I found myself even more curious and further motivated to obtain deeper insight within the field of food science.” Katrine Overgaard Poulsen (student 2017)  “The summer school broadened my view on food. Beside the many different insights in companies and research, the two weeks have been very tasteful. An experience for everyone who thinks about the future of food.” Philip Schierning (student 2017)

                  Did you know that according to the “Fight Against Fraud 2015 Report” by the Commission to the European Parliament and the Council, in 2015 alone, 22,349 irregularities in relation to revenue and expenditure were reported by the EU Member States, involving a total amount of approximately EUR 3.21 billion in EU funds?

                  All EU Member States were specifically recommended to strengthen their fraud detection and/or reporting systems took important steps to improve their national system. It is certain that these kind of fraudulent activities are not common but the cost is deadly. Therefore it is a fact that  more and more government organisations and private companies will seek employees who have the necessary background to build and run fraud detection mechanisms.
                  In this course, we are going to learn how to use data analytics techniques including some data mining tools to identify irregularities, anomalies and potential fraud cases in accounting data. Data analytics, process of transforming input data into useful information through proper analytic tools, is relevant to all business professionals.

                  This process enhances the decision makers’ ability to use data effectively, in order to better understand the cases that they are dealing with, and to provide better, consistent, and to the point decision models to solve a wide range of business problems. This course is designed to introduce necessary tools and techniques to improve students’ applied data analytics skills in the area of forensic accounting so that they will have the required knowledge and expertise to put an auditing system in place to detect fraud, problems, or anomalies in accounting data. Students will learn both theoretical and practical sides of analyzing large size real data sets.

                  Game.Play.Design: Changing worlds / changing views is an interdisciplinary and process-oriented Summer School that revolves around digital games, digital gameplay and digital game design. Through the course the student will develop a theoretical, analytical and methodological appreciation of (curriculum) as well as a practice-oriented, hands-on, conceptualizing approach towards (practicum) digital games as designed object, aesthetic expression, interaction form, user experience and cultural product.  
                  The intensive format and the fact that a number of courses is taught by multiple lectures (including guest lecturers) also means that you should be open to the possibility that the course might be taught differently than what you are used to (different teaching styles, theories, exercises etc.).

                  The lecturers are themselves interdisciplinary in their approach having professional basis in media studies, information studies, digital design, educational design, interaction design, aesthetics, experience economy and rhetoric. The aim of the course is to gain insight into, discuss, critically reflect on and productively put to use different humanistic professions in a generative way in order to strengthen, sharpen and nuance one’s own profession in relation to digital games as phenomenon, practice and design. In this way, the distinctive theoretical, analytical, methodological and product-oriented skills and competencies of the individual student is put into play and put to use in the interdisciplinary working group. The course consists of lecture/curriculum weeks (week 1 & 3: July 23- 27 and August 6 - 10) (theory about & analysis of digital games) and project/practicum weeks (week 2 & 4: July 31 – August 5 and August 15 - 19) (development & presentation of conceptual products in relation to digital games). Theory and design comes together through reciprocal ‘learning by doing’ resulting in a design for gameplay.

                  Countries characterized by economic, social and political environments that are conducive to entrepreneurship provide more opportunities for businesses to grow and develop faster. Since business ventures are becoming increasingly global, an understanding of entrepreneurial environments of economies worldwide is crucial in order to exploit opportunities worldwide.  
                  In light of the above observations, this course examines how economic factors, physical factors, trade factors and formal and informal institutions affect entrepreneurship and how entrepreneurs create and manage business ventures that have international dimensions. This course is multidisciplinary in nature and scope and provides broad global perspectives on cultures, nations and sub-nationalities in the industrialized and developing world from the standpoint of entrepreneurship.

                  This course also examines how cultural, social, political, economic and historical changes taking place in the world, especially in the economies in transition, affect entrepreneurial development. It places a special emphasis on inter-connections between regions through such mechanisms as global flow of goods, services, labor, capitals, technology and people; and the roles of supra-national institutions (e.g., the OECD). In the course, case analyses will draw on concepts, skills, and insights from such disciplines as marketing, operations, finance, control, decision-making, leadership, ethics, governance, negotiation. The course will be organized around three major sections: (1) international entrepreneurship: drivers, performance, and impact, (2) entrepreneurship in economies with diverse economic and institutional conditions, and (3) cases related to international entrepreneurship.

                  Description

                  The Global Management and Manufacturing (GMM) programme is for students who wish to work in global management, sourcing, and production. The global perspective is an essential part of the study programme, which also includes a unique mentor programme.

                  Career Opportunities  

                  Graduates are well prepared for the challenge of international markets. Recent graduates have found employment as production managers, quality engineers, environmental engineers, technical managers, logistics managers, and project managers in both European and globally oriented companies.

                  About the Degree

                  The GMM degree is a broad engineering programme that combines the disciplines of production, sourcing, product development, economics, and management. Global markets and companies are in focus in the programme, including global Danish companies such as Grundfos, Siemens Gamesa, Vestas, Danfoss, Arla, and LEGO.

                  The duration of the GMM programme is three and a half years. The programme focuses on four main subject areas: manufacturing, quality, product development, and international business administration.

                  What is truly unique about GMM is that each student is affiliated with a company with which they collaborate closely from the third to the seventh semester. This scheme is called Company Connect, and it allows students to undertake tasks in relation to their studies and gives them a chance to try out theories, models, and concepts in the context of real-life problems in the company. In this way, students gain numerous opportunities to bridge theory and practice during their studies.

                  By extending their studies by an additional two years, students can take a master’s degree. At the Department of Business Development and Technology (BTECH), students can choose the MSc in Engineering – Technology Based Business Development. International degree programmes in engineering management, supply chain management, and management are also possible choices.

                  Students have many possibilities at BTECH. On campus, we offer accommodation for 400 students with facilities including a fitness room, a café, free internet and a laundry room. There are also sports activities at Campus Herning, and there is a Friday bar.

                  Globalisation continuously increases contact between people from different parts of the world. Multinational companies, institutions and organisations are increasingly located in many parts of the world and employ people with different cultural backgrounds who have to work across locations and together in global teams. Global teams are crucial for knowledge transfers within companies and organisations. To make them effective we need to look at the intercultural challenges they experience. Research shows that efficiency increases if employers effectively develop the intercultural competence of their staff. This is where they need expertise in intercultural competence.
                  After graduating many of you will find jobs that demand a high level of intercultural competence. To understand these contexts and the challenges involved you need particular theoretical insights, analytic skills and a specific set of attitudes.

                  This course will give you theories, analytic tools and competence to act professionally as individuals or as brokers in culturally complex situations. Based on theories from anthropology, intercultural communication, and cross-cultural interaction as well as qualitative methods, the course will equip you with tools and skills that enable you to successfully act and communicate in intercultural settings and not least to advise others on how to interact in culturally complex situations. To develop your intercultural competence for professional settings we will be working with authentic cases from the international business world and apply various simulation games for you to reflect on your own reactions to intercultural complexities.

                  The Danish and global plant production is facing major challenges. The rapid population growth, the increased consumption of animal products and the use of crops for energy purposes demand an increased production. In addition, climate change is expected to have pronounced effects on plant production. At the same time there is also a strong wish among the public that future plant production can take place with minimal applications of pesticides and fertilizers. In effect, plant production is developing into a far more dynamic and demanding scenario in the food-, feed-, non-food-, and bioenergy area.  Plant biotechnology is expected to play a major role in meeting the demands created by this scenario through knowledge on plant genomes, advanced molecular breeding and development of genetic modified organisms (GMO).

                  The course intends to provide the students with experience in advanced molecular techniques used in modern plant science and biotechnology through an intensive two-week course. The course will cover state of the art techniques and methods within plant biotechnology research, including the genetic basis of several important plant properties and the use of molecular genetics and genetically modified organisms (GMO). The course will be relevant for students who wish a practical introduction to the newest techniques and theory within plant science and biotechnology, and who wish to understand the potentials of these techniques in future plant production. 

                  Admisson requirements

                  The students are expected to have to have a basic theoretical and practical knowledge in molecular biology, genetics and biotechnology.

                  The objective of this course is to enable students to create opportunities based on their academic and professional skills and knowledge. Employing methods from entrepreneurship and innovation, students learn how to initiate value creating projects and products. The overall understanding of entrepreneurship in this course is much broader than merely establishment of new companies. Based on well-founded theories we see entrepreneurship as a method (Venkataraman & Sarasvathy 2011). Thus the theoretical underpinning of the method can be investigated and the method can be learned through the course components, which are: a) theoretical introduction, b) training, c) application and d) reflection. The course inspires students to an entrepreneurial and innovative approach in many settings such as their primary study programme, research, clinical practice, the industry and of course also start-ups.After the course, the students must be able to:
                  • Explain and compare the presented entrepreneurship and innovation theories
                  • Explain the core components in the entrepreneurial process and use this knowledge to reflect upon the process that he/she has gone through during the course
                  • Describe and reflect upon relevant personal and professional competences and preferences in an entrepreneurial team including network
                  • Identify, describe and scope relevant problems (or disclose disharmonies) in everyday practices in a medical setting
                  • Apply methods to find out if the problem or disharmony is widely accepted as a problem
                  • Identify and qualify an opportunity through an innovation process
                  • Prepare a preliminary business model and be able to discuss the pros and cons of different types of business models
                  • Present an opportunity to stakeholders

                  Description

                  Human Security is a unique master’s programme and the first of its kind in Europe. In the course of this cross-disciplinary programme, you will achieve a deeper understanding of social and environmental conflicts around the world. These conflicts are multi-dimensional, and we cannot separate the effects of food security from environmental security, economic security from human dignity or from health. Rather than trying to separate them, you will learn how to analyse and intervene in this complex network of interwoven social, economic and political factors. The Master’s programme is directed by the Department of Anthropology and is based at Campus Moesgaard south of Aarhus city.

                  Career Opportunities  

                  The MA in Human Security is unique in that the programme takes a holistic approach to development in a changing natural and social world. The competencies developed by the programme are in demand both now and well into the future. The Human Security programme prepares graduates to work in the development sector in national and international NGOs, government development organisations, UN organisations such as UNHCR or UNDP, and development consultancies.  

                  About the Degree

                  In recent years, the concept ’human security’ has become a rallying point for understanding and working with processes of human development in unstable environments that are marked by social and environmental conflicts. Particularly the growing challenges posed by global environmental changes threaten to trigger a rapid escalation of conflicts throughout the world, as competition over access to scarce resources intensifies, supplies of essential commodities dwindle, and global population rates continue to increase. Thus human security is more than the absence of physical aggression. As a cross-disciplinary development approach, the MA in Human Security addresses not only the various forms of militarised and physical security; it also includes secure access to water, food, land, and education.

                  On the Master’s programme in Human Security, you will study and collaborate with a highly qualified group of international students. You will absorb expert knowledge and skills from both social and natural scientists who have practical work experience of environmental and development issues around the world. 

                  The four departments involved in the Master’s programme are the Department of Anthropology in the School of Culture and Society, the Department of Bioscience, the Danish Centre for Food and Agriculture, and the Danish Centre for Environment and Energy. In addition to the affiliated research staff at Aarhus University, visiting lecturers from abroad teach courses throughout the programme.

                  Where digital service providers a few years ago, handled users by username/password and a local user database, we have in a few years seen major changes. It is now possible to use various services for user handling, and delegation of access to data between services is now possible and is used more than ever. This trend is supported by a large amount of protocols such as OAuth and OpenID as well as several commercial solutions including Facebook Connect and in a Danish context NemID. In the future this development will be further driven by cloud computing and "the API economy" where companies are subcontractors to each other using APIs to cloud-based solutions. These changes make it important to have a technical understanding of the security and the functionality around the management of digital identities.
                  The course work is both theoretically and practically concerning these "state of the art" technologies for managing digital identities. In addition, we take a look at some of the emerging technologies that supports security, including privacy in completely new ways. This is cryptographic technologies like anonymous credentials/attribute based credentials(eg. Microsoft U-Prove and IBM Identity Mixer). Parallel with these technical changes major legal changes are on the way, especially from the EU, where a new regulation is on its way. This Regulation will have implications for all Danish companies that manage users on the Internet, and it is therefore important as a technician to have a firm understanding of these implications, therefore, the course will also touch on these legal aspects (by using an external teacher, expert in this field).

                  In 2014, the average income of the bottom 90 % in the United States was about 33,000 USD. The income of the top 0.1 % was over 6,000,000 USD. In other words, the top 0.1 % received 184 times the income of the bottom 90 %. The Gini-coefficient (0 = perfect equality; 1 = perfect inequality) in the US was almost 0.4, as compared to about 0.25 in countries like Denmark and Norway. Inequality has been on the rise in most highly developed democracies around the globe, but it varies enormously between countries. Why is this?
                  Inequality is a fundamental feature of all human societies. Without some degree of economic inequality, it is difficult to imagine how modern democracies could function. Yet, while some inequality is unavoidable, too much inequality can have consequences that many will find unacceptable. High inequality is associated with deteriorating health outcomes, reduced social mobility and lack of democratic participation. Most people would probably agree that neither perfect equality, where all have exactly the same, nor perfect inequality, where one person owns everything, is desirable.

                  The question is not whether there should be economic inequality, but how much there should be. 
                  Many people spontaneously associate the welfare state with equality, reasoning that the welfare state implies income redistribution and that income redistribution means more equality. At first sight, this seems to make perfect sense. Nevertheless, the intuition that the bigger the welfare state (in terms of public social spending), the more egalitarian the income distribution tends to be does not hold. There does not seem to be a clear and strong (negative) relationship between the size of the welfare state and inequality. Why is this? In part I of the course, we examine comparatively the history, growth, maturation, retrenchment and reform of welfare states. In part II we focus on inequality and how welfare states deal with this (or not!).

                  In this course you will learn about the practical integration of farmers, municipalities, farm companies, research, consultancy and legislation in the integrated management of nutrients and agricultural systems. Based on excursions, sustainable management of nutrients to help agriculture reduce environmental impacts are demonstrated via case studies in Western Denmark; a world leading region for integration between intensive farming, livestock production, environmental protection, socio-economy and relationships to rural development. A series of environmental legislations called the Water Environment Plans (WEP) are used as a teaching tool to illustrate these complex issues. The WEP deals, among other things, with the leaching of nutrients from agricultural fields into the aquatic environment. All important aspects of the WEP related to the course will be explored, and you will meet people who are associated with the WEP in different ways. The course is co-organized between the two leading life science Universities and graduate schools of Aarhus (Denmark) and Hokaido (Japan), with professors from both universities as teachers. Moreover, a number of study excursions will be arranged so that you can visit the experimental fields and places where the WEP is implemented in practice. The basic idea of the course is to give you the opportunity to think about and learn how theories are applied in practice. This course is a link between theory and practice.

                  Description

                  In our increasingly interdependent world, cultural differences are shaping the everyday life of individuals as well as large corporations. These cultural and linguistic boundaries demand new skills to manage the deterritorialisation of culture, the transnational mobility of both people and streams of information, and increased interconnectivity through the internet and social media. The new Intercultural Studies programme offers these skills. The programme prepares students to analyse various different contexts and to engage in entrepreneurial activity using their foreign-language skills. Students can choose between four different tracks:
                  • Intercultural Studies (English)
                  • Intercultural Studies (French)
                  • Intercultural Studies (German)
                  • Intercultural Studies (Latin America and Spain)

                  Career Opportunities  

                  Graduates of the programme are highly valued for their strong intercultural competencies and multilingual projects and processes by both private and public organisations in the international job market.

                  About the Degree

                  The programme will develop students’ knowledge and skills in languages, intercultural communication and competence as well as their cultural understanding from the perspective of globalisation. Furthermore, the programme contains elements of project management, including the opportunity for a one-semester internship.   

                  Students will study key contemporary themes from a historical perspective within the fields of culture, language, and society. The working methods include the study of real-life cases and project-oriented group work
                  .

                  The four different foreign-language combinations follow the same basic structure, but address specific cultural characteristics, products, and issues, as well as the respective problems that may arise in relation to intercultural communication.

                  The Faculty of Arts and Aarhus University as a whole organise many events for students including lectures, student fairs, career days, seminars, celebrations and sports days.

                  When asked to think of a particular industry that operates in a free market, many tend to mention banking and financial services. But contrary to popular belief, banking and finance is among the industries with the most extensive and detailed regulation. And since regulation ultimately determines the distribution of risk and reward among the various stakeholders involved (the financial firms, their employees, the regulators and the public) - it also remains an area of fierce debate with strong ideological fault lines and political controversies. Not least since the stakes are astronomical – for example, millions of people in Europe and elsewhere are still suffering from the aftermath of the global financial crisis.
                   These high stakes, the vast ideological differences and distributional consequences raise important question on the factors at play in shaping banking and financial system around the world:
                  • How do financial systems vary around the world, and how does this variety relate to macro-social factors, governance frameworks, regulation and political systems?
                  • How are financial systems maintained and transformed? What political, social and technological forces promote stability or change? Who has the power to influence outcomes?
                  • What developments in political, social and technological areas are likely to transform the global and national financial systems in the coming years and beyond?
                  The course “Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Banking & Financial Services” seeks to provide answers these questions from an interdisciplinary perspective, where explanations are sought, compared and critically discussed from different academic perspectives (including economics, management, institutional theory and international political economy.

                   The course aims to provide an advanced knowledge on international and intercountry macroeconomics. Precisely, it deals with choices under uncertainty and international financial markets. Modern economics has raised a new and deeper attention to the issue of risk management, precisely, on how to cope with (to become resilient to) risk and absorb idiosyncratic shocks through risk sharing.

                  It represents a great change on the point of view from which economists study and interpret economic phenomena and, consequently, design policy actions. This course will provide students with a deep understanding of the standard modelling of international risk sharing. Furthermore, it will provide an overview of the most relevant economic literature on the topic and the tool kit to deal with international and intranational risk sharing at empirical level.

                  • Media and Politics at the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands 
                  • Business and Finance Journalism at City University in London, UK 
                  • Journalism and Media Across Cultures at the University of Hamburg, Germany
                  • War and Conflict at the University of Swansea, Wales 

                  As an Erasmus Mundus student, you can expect a cultural experience both inside the classroom and out. The programme brings together students from all around the world to join a tight-knit community of inspired and talented young professionals in Aarhus. 

                  Students are also offered a number of extra-curricular activities in which they can try out their theoretical skills in practice. In Aarhus, Erasmus Mundus students have set up two media platforms – Jutland Station, an online magazine, and Planet Mundus, a radio outlet covering everything from politics to sport in Aarhus from an international perspective. Similar initiatives are found at the partner universities.

                  The programme takes an academic and theoretical approach to journalism. Students are awarded a joint degree from Aarhus University and one of the European partner universities. In addition to the specialism year offered in year two, in the second semester of year one, students can also apply to complete 20 ECTS at an overseas partner university – choosing either the University of California at Berkeley, USA or Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile or University of Technology Sydney, Australia.

                  The Mundus Journalism Consortium offers a limited number of Erasmus Mundus student scholarships, funded by the EU, for students admitted to the Mundus Journalism Masters course in 2019.

                  Marketing communication and research heavily rely on language. Advertisers use language to convince consumers to buy a certain product. Market researchers ask consumers what they think about a product or what kind of product consumers think they need. Obviously, the success of such marketing efforts depends on linguistic and psycholinguistic processes. Therefore, selected research questions we discuss in this course are:
                  • How can the linguistic structure of brand names influence brand perception?
                  • How can linguistic framing manipulate consumer decision making?
                  • What are the potentials and limits of priming and subliminal advertising?
                  • How can psycholinguistic methodology (reaction times, eye-tracking) improve our understanding of consumer behavior?
                  • How do metaphors and narrative structure affect consumer memory and learning?
                  • How does the violation of conversational maxims affect consumer emotions and behavioral change?
                  • What is important if advertising targets bilingual consumers?

                  The objective of this course is that students become more sensitive to the relation between language and consumer behavior. To achieve this, course uses a practical approach and shows how psycholinguistic theory and experimental research evidence are relevant to analyze and criticize authentic examples from marketing. To apply and integrate this knowledge constructively, we work on three extensive cases each week. The cases involve developing a brand name for a pharmaceutical product, building an awareness campaign for a non-profit organization and creating a story for a crowd-sourcing campaign of a start-up company. The cases simulate agency pitches where students work in small teams, present and peer-vote to select the best campaign.

                  Summer School of , 10 ECTS

                  Institution Aarhus University (AU)

                  Over the last decade it became clear to many of those working in the business sector that we have several problems to solve in our economic system. Among the many different and important topics to consider, one is the ethical behaviour of the upper levels of management in big and medium-sized companies. A lot of scandals (Deutsche Bank, different companies in the clothing industry, Shell in Nigeria Volkswagen etc.) showed to professors, managers and students that we need a new and broader reflection about how managers act in business and how we can integrate ethical perspectives into our management style. My approach in these lectures is to integrate into a classical course about management strategy those ethical and human questions, problems and demands which, if left unaddressed, can create great challenges for handling a market (market cultivation). Wrong decisions by upper and top management can result in great problems which can also place the company itself in a precarious position, as we currently see, for example, in the case of VW.  
                  This course’s main goal is to present, discuss and practice different strategical methods and explore their theoretical background in business ethics. Since every level of management is shaped by its leaders, the focus of this course is on leadership. The students will explore and connect different lessons from economic philosophy (Aristotle and Smith) with modern theories about management strategy and ethics in leadership. The course is divided into modules where the students will be introduced to business ethics and leadership in management. In these modules we will also investigate what we can learn from “old” authors.  Through a dynamic pedagogical approach, this course combines theoretical introductions with case studies followed by individual and team exercises and discussion groups. In this way, we will discover together how to apply theory to practice and increase the excitement of learning.  After taking this course, students should be able to perform the following with greater confidence and understanding:
                  • Define and explain what ethics means in leadership
                  • Articulate the valid claims of classical authors, and employ various techniques to promote ethical behaviour in the day-to-day business of a company
                  • Evaluate intelligently and embody deliberately a system of values through a personal style of strategic management
                  • Appreciate the competition between ethical behaviour and business or personal success

                  The world we live in today is captured very aptly in the acronym Vuca: volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. In this “New Normal”, organizations need to show sustained performance while simultaneously showing extreme care for all stakeholders. This is not possible unless buiness leaders understand the importance of organization design in VUCA world. Professional organizations require leadership, strategy, adaptability and coordination on a scale never before imagined. In this regard the major challenge is, “how to design a work organization that can quickly adapt with the dynamic market realities?’’ The employees’ and customers’ need and demand are ever changing and competitors adopt better ways of doing business which create a pressure on the organization’s capability to align with the internal processes (structure, system and culture) and external challenges (competitors and customers) to remain efficient and effective. Organizations need managers with high such a leadership potential right at the entry stage. Hence, I have designed the course on “Leading and Designing Organizations” to help the leaders to understand how organizations work from inside in terms strategies, structure, system, culture and people management practices and how managers can develop some of the required competencies to redesign a company.
                  Thus this course provides students with the social science tools needed to solve organizational problems and prepare leaders to understand how to organize the task, coordinate across the teams, motivate the human capital of the firm, manage the social networks, develop emotional intelligence and conflict management skills, and initiate organizational transformation. In cases studies of several successful organizations McKinsey, 3M, GE, P&G, and startups, it is seen that empowered employees and the design of a learning organization often improve productivity, profits and sustainability. As a starting point, this course is organized around three different perspectives on organizations: the strategic design perspective, the political perspective, and the cultural perspective. Each of them offers a different angle on what is an organization, and each offers different tools for action. I have designed and developed business games and selected case studies that are relevant to imbibe such competencies among the participants. As the part of my teaching philosophy, I believe in making things simple and comfortably better for the students.

                  Description

                  The MA in Linguistics at Aarhus University explores the various aspects of language through project-based research under expert supervision. The programme examines first and second language acquisition, language description and diversity, corpus linguistics, functionalist theories of language, communication, social and individual multilingualism, and text structures, all combined with qualitative and quantitative methods. 

                  Career Opportunities    

                  Graduates of the MA in Linguistics programme are equipped with skills in communication and in the systematisation of complex data. They are qualified to take on work as consultants, bilingualism specialists, communications officers, teachers, editors, language therapy consultants, developers of language technology, specialists in endangered languages and, of course, in public relations. 

                  About the Degree

                  Linguistics at AU is a medium-sized programme with about 100 students – so students are welcomed into a tight-knit academic and social community. Expect many opportunities for dialogue with professors, detailed feedback, and many after-class activities. 

                  The programme is known for its strong international research profile. Teachers have worldwide connections and are aware of the newest developments in their fields. Each semester, students are invited to participate in research projects on a range of subjects. 

                  Between Lingoland (the department’s own common room) and the regular Lingobar gatherings in the Kommabar on Fridays, life as a linguistics student at AU can extend far beyond coursework.
                   
                  The department’s ViGør student committee (“We can do it” in Danish) and the MA course café are constantly busy organising weekly events for students – so between gatherings inspired by classic Danish hygge (cosiness) with coffee and cake, guest lectures and Tour de Bars (think, pub crawls), students have lots to choose from. 

                  The programme has its own student committee, which functions as a forum for students to communicate with the university and share ideas regarding both practical and school-related matters. All students can be active in the programme degree committee, where students and staff make decisions on matters relating to academic affairs. 

                  Students on the MA programme are involved in two research projects on exciting new topics, with the opportunity to explore linguistics through an internship. All students are assigned a staff member as mentor for the duration of their studies. 

                  Students have a chance to complete project-oriented work with their peers in the first year, and with an external partner in the third semester – a chance to work in a practical setting. Students can choose their own research topic during all courses, including their MA thesis, and are encouraged to align this project with their future career goals.

                  Philosophers have considered the relation between madness and literature since Plato’s Phaedrus. Mental illness has been a favorite topic for great authors throughout literary history just as psychologists and psychiatrists like Sigmund Freud and Karl Jaspers have been interested in and influenced by literature. Pioneers within philosophy, psychiatry and the world of art share the endeavor to explore and explain the human mind and behavior, including what a society deems as being outside perceived normality.

                  In this course, we will read great books about madness by e.g. Sophocles, Shakespeare, Goethe, Dostoyevsky and Woolf as well as contemporary poetry and graphic memoirs (autobiographical comics) about the topic. In addition, we will compare the representation of madness in literature to its depiction in the visual arts (e.g. Goya, Delacroix, Bacon) and the cinema. Theoretically, the course will provide knowledge about psychopathology, the history of madness literature, narrative medicine and the health humanitites, bibliotherapy, and central concepts of narrative theory and poetry. We will discuss both the topos of the author as a mad genius as well as consider the potential instrumental use of literature in psychiatry didactics. In addition to close reading of the texts, students will engage in creative writing exercises. The academic program will be complemented by a social program, which includes movie screenings and a visit to Museum Ovartaci (the local museum for outsider art and the history of psychiatry). ​

                  The purpose of any Information System is to help an Organisation manage its business better. For instance, an Inventory Management System would assist the organisation in keeping track of stocks and optimising stock levels. An HR Information system would help in managing the key Human Resources of the organisation, and so on. With ever increasing complexities of business as well as management, now a days, Information systems are not merely required for improving efficiency of business operations; rather these systems are used for effective business decisions and achieving strategic advantage. As a result of the increasing role of Information Technology (IT) in an enterprise, the functions of information systems are changing. It is transforming   from a technology provider to a strategic partner and from a resource to a strategic tool. Because of the increasing use and participation of IT in all processes and projects, all the managers, irrespective of their functional areas, need to understand, deploy and effectively manage Information Systems (ISs)/IT.  

                  The research on IS has clearly established that in many cases, Information Systems do not meet the business needs for which they were originally intended and thus fail to provide the expected return on investment/ business value. There are several reasons for this failure that include lack of planning; lack of alignment of business and IT, communication gap between the business and IT professionals; lack of effective IT project management and implementation  and so on. Most organizations tend to delegate the planning process to the IT Department, which in most cases views this as a technical problem rather than a solution to a business need. The key to successful IS Implementation, therefore, is to create a “Business – linked Information Systems Plan”. Accordingly, IS planning forms a key component of this MIS course.  The other important issue in the area of MIS is the underlying IT technologies that support Information Systems. Most managers need to take decisions with regard to these technologies. Unfortunately however, most of them do not have sufficient understanding of these technologies, and therefore leave key decisions to technologists – with disastrous consequences. Therefore, another component of this course will cover the basics of IT technologies that are today commonly used in organizations, along with implications for managers.

                  Finally, once the IS Plan is in place; the systems decided upon must be either bought out or developed, and ultimately implemented. The last component of the course would therefore focus on ERP systems (which are the most commonly available bought out systems in the market). It would also cover the process of Information System Analysis and Design, with emphasis on Requirements Analysis, which would be used when systems are to be developed.

                  Description

                  Mathematics is a part of day-to-day life – of using your debit card and navigating by GPS, just as much as making calculations in physics or chemistry or working out the pot odds in an important hand of poker. 

                  Career Opportunities  

                  Graduates from the Department of Mathematics find work across a wide range of fields and institutions including finance, communication, and the wind-power industry in the private sector. Typically, previous graduates are working in universities and research institutions, in the pharmaceutical industry, the telecommunications and finance sectors, and in insurance companies. 

                  Graduates who pursue academic careers at universities are often involved in interdisciplinary work with doctors, biologists or chemists, analysing large amounts of data, or teaching statistics to these professional groups. In the pharmaceutical industry, graduates plan clinical trials or design methods for examining whether new drugs have unwanted side effects. In the insurance industry, graduates typically work as actuaries and may contribute to working out tariffs. Common to all these jobs is the requirement for knowledge of a number of complicated mathematical models – something the MSc in Mathematics will equip you with. 

                  About the Degree

                  Teaching at the university is greatly influenced by the research conducted here, as the lecturers are active researchers. When students write their MSc thesis during the final year of the programme, they have excellent opportunities to become affiliated with a group of researchers, which allows them to participate in the group’s research projects and scientific discussions. Students specialise in a subject within a broad area, including one of the three areas of mathematics in which Aarhus University is particularly strong: algebra, analysis, and geometry and topology. 

                  As a student in the programme, you are based at the Department of Mathematics, which has its own canteen, computer rooms, library, and study areas shared by students. As a Master’s student, you will be given your own desk in an office shared with other Master’s students. The department also has a number of student organisations such as Euler’s Friends (Eulers Venner) and the Kalkulerbar (Friday bar) organising lectures on current maths topics, study excursions and social functions.

                  Description

                  The MSc in Molecular Biology programme is both practical and research-oriented, reflecting the interests of business and industry, research institutions, and the public sector. This flexible programme accommodates the interests of the individual student, because it allows you to specialise in a particular subject area while acquiring a general mastery of molecular biology.

                  Career Opportunities    

                  As a molecular biologist, you will primarily be working with finding solutions to the many health and food challenges faced by our society due to ageing populations and more stringent standards for food development and quality. These areas are growing rapidly – a trend that is expected to continue. The employment prospects for future molecular biologists therefore look very promising.  

                  Previous graduates are working across a wide range of fields and institutions, mostly within research or administration and consultancy, in both private and public sectors. Graduates who want to be communicators go into teaching at lab-technician and teacher-training colleges or adult education. Other molecular biologists work in specialist molecular biology fields in the food industry, the health sector, or the pharmaceutical industry

                  About the Degree

                  Students can choose to specialise within a choice of fields, including one of the five branches of molecular biology in which Aarhus University is particularly strong: molecular medicine, structural biology, systems biology, plant biology, and quantitative genetics.  

                  The study programme can be tailored to fit the individual student’s qualifications and interests. In the first year, you will follow an individually planned course programme. In the second year, you will write a thesis. There are excellent opportunities for collaboration with a group of researchers in connection with your thesis project work, and this gives you the chance to participate in the group’s research projects, academic discussions, and articles.

                  Teaching in the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics is greatly influenced by the research conducted here, as all the lecturers are active researchers. Students gain insight into ongoing research projects across the entire spectrum of molecular biology – from bacteria and yeast to humans. The understanding of biochemistry and molecular biology is based upon the entire spectrum, from atoms to organisms.

                  Students in the programme are based at the Department of Molecular Biology, which is located in Die Rote Zone, the department’s large facility in Science Park Aarhus, which students have furnished themselves and where they meet in connection with academic and social activities (and which has its own Friday bar). A number of student organisations in the department also organise academic activities.

                  The course aims at qualifying for the strategic challenges related to new venture creation, to growth processes in young firms and to realising an exit (or continuing) with a venture. The course follows the typical life cycle of entrepreneurial ventures and the related (gestation) activities and qualifies for such activities. Students will be qualified to create or recognize new venture opportunities, evaluate opportunities, plan for new ventures, define strategic positions and business models, and establish and manage start-ups even “against all odds”.
                  Students will have the opportunity to leverage their social and methodological skills by discussing case issues and solutions with their peers and by applying methods designed for entrepreneurship. This course is not about business plan writing. Instead its perspective is on strategic challenges, management methods and resources all especially designed for new ventures. The course will thus introduce and train students in entrepreneurial thinking and action. Students will qualify to comprehend the most useful and influential entrepreneurship theories and derive meaning from such theories for entrepreneurial practice.

                  The content
                   includes but is not limited to opportunity creation or identification and evaluation, market entry, uncontested distribution channels, regional growth methodology, value creation, entrepreneurial finance and crowd investing, managing growth and exist strategies. The content includes the reflection of entrepreneurship theory, such like opportunity creation or recognition theory, theory of rule breaking behaviour, effectuation theory, theory of the structural hole, and resource related theories. Theories are reflected from the perspective of real case studies and how an understanding of the theory can enrich entrepreneurs’ abilities in new venture creation. The course will qualify participants in coping with various challenges associated with the stat-up of new businesses.

                  The course will start with an overview of current NGS technologies and directions in which these are currently progressing. Methods for assembling genomes from NGS data using either a reference genome or de novo assembly will be presented together with some emphasis on assessing NGS data quality (Quality control, accuracy of base calling). The course will then offer an overview of the range of biological/biomedical questions that these new types of data can help to address. This includes:  
                  • The use of NGS resequencing of closely related genomes for detecting mutations. This includes the characterization of somatic mutations in cancer tissues, the de novo mutation spectrum in eukaryotic genomes, and the detection of mutations underlying phenotypic changes in experimental or natural populations.
                  • Combining NGS with methods aimed at reducing genome complexity such as exome resequencing in complex genomes.
                  • The use of resequencing of a large number of individuals for Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNPs) and Copy number variation detection.
                  • Application of NGS in Transcriptomics, Epigenomics and Chromatin structure studies. Environmental/Meta-genomics studies probing the bacterial/viral diversity of understudied biomes.
                  • Comparative and evolutionary genomics.
                  To allow hands-on data analysis training, the course includes the following computer exercises, which can be completed using either your own or example data:

                  Did you know that starch from our diet can be degraded in the stomach, small intestine and large intestine and subsequently taken up to our blood as lactate, glucose, or short chain fatty acids, respectively? Did you know that time from feeding has a major impact on which nutrients are available for production in monogastric animals, and at which quantity? Did you know that energy from starch may be used to very different metabolic processes like 1) oxidation in muscles, 2) glucose homeostasis in plasma due to liver uptake/release, or 3) synthesis of lactose and milk fat in the mammary gland?
                  Utilisation of dietary nutrients depends greatly upon physiological stage! This course will give you a deeper understanding of the fate of dietary nutrients using a quantitative approach, where sows are surgically modified and used to adress a specific research question.

                  Description

                  The MSc programme in Organic Agriculture and Food Systems (EUR-Organic) is a unique degree combining high-ranking research environments with state-of-the-art knowledge from industry leaders in organic food production. It prepares students to develop the solutions of tomorrow, focusing on goals such as high crop yields, high animal welfare, and low environmental impact. Students also learn how agriculture systems and current methods of food production work. At Aarhus University organic agriculture is an integrated part of all courses, and therefore the programme for students specialising in organic agriculture also includes courses focused on farming in an organic setting.

                  Career Opportunities  

                  Graduates can choose from a wide range of careers in supporting organic farming development. Recent graduates have worked in research and in primary production with national, regional, and local authorities and advisory services.

                  About the Degree

                  This programme is a collaboration between four leading European universities in the field of agriculture and life sciences (Aarhus University, the University of Hohenheim in Stuttgart, the University of Natural Resources and Life Science in Vienna, and the Warsaw University of Life Sciences).

                  Students spend one year at their chosen home university and one year at their chosen host university, and receive a degree from both institutions. Each university takes a different thematic approach to organic food production, with Aarhus University’s specialisms including organic agriculture with a focus on animal or plant production, health, and welfare/nutrition.

                  For detailed information on the different universities’ specialisms, visit www.eur-organic.eu.

                  Denmark is a world leader in organic food production, which provides the ideal setting for specialising in this field. The Danish government was one of the first to prioritise organic production, and an increasingly high percentage of food produced in Denmark today is organic.  

                  This programme gives students an international profile, network, and perspective. Students will be exposed to differing parameters in different countries and agriculture systems around the world, and they will learn from their peers’ different ways of approaching a problem – a perfect preparation for a future career in an increasingly globalised industry.

                  Agricultural sciences at Aarhus University rank ninth worldwide in the 2017 US News Best Global Universities ranking, and tenth in the 2016 National Taiwan University ranking. Agriculture and Forestry at AU are ranked between 51 and 100 in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2017.

                  Description

                  You adjust the lasers in the lab before going to your next lecture on cold atoms. You feed your computer the latest measurements from the scanning tunnelling microscope, and see if the placement of the extra atoms on the surface matches your model calculation. You do some work on your model for a quantum computer before going to the next lecture in quantum optics. Or you might be at CERN this week, running experiments with anti-protons to test new possibilities for radiation therapy, or predicting the fate of ultra-relativistic lead ions in the Large Hadron Collider.   

                  Students on the MSc programme in Physics are actively involved in research and in the discussion of new discoveries and theories. The curriculum is tailored to the interests and intended profile of the individual. 

                  Career Opportunities  

                  Graduates from the MSc Physics programme have a wide range of career opportunities. A number of graduates are working in the private sector in areas such as modern optics, materials physics, or surface physics. Large IT companies, patent agencies, and the financial sector are increasingly hiring one or more physicists on their staff. The number of graduates working in hospitals as physicists has also dramatically increased, with most of these working in radiation physics and radiation therapy. Some of our recent graduates are in research positions at universities or at public research institutions.

                  About the Degree  

                  Teaching on the MSc Physics programme is greatly influenced by the fact that the lecturers are active researchers. In this context, students benefit from the down-to-earth, informal relationship between the academic staff and students. When students write their thesis, they are connected with a group of researchers and become involved in one or more of the group’s research projects.   

                  Students on the programme have a wide range of options for specialisation, both in the Department of Physics and Astronomy and via the department’s close collaboration with AU’s other centres, the Institute for Storage Ring Facilities (ISA) and the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Centre (iNANO). The department also has research groups working at several institutions outside Denmark, including a number of the major European laboratories.
                   

                  The MSc in Physics programme is open to students with a BSc degree in physics or another BSc degree in science with substantial physics and mathematics content. The programme is challenging and research-oriented and reflects the interests of private-sector companies, research institutions, and the public sector. It is also flexible and can accommodate the interests and strengths of the individual student.   

                  Students can specialise within (for example) atomic and molecular physics, solid-state physics, subatomic physics, or astrophysics. The programme also qualifies students for a career in research: students may apply for admission to the university’s PhD programme either during the MSc degree programme or on completion of the thesis.

                  This course addresses the role of project-based organisations as a means for innovation, growth, and managing complexity. We will focus in particular on the way firms use projects to stimulate innovation and creativity, as well as manage growth and complexity. Projects are pervasive in a wide range of firms and industries. They range from short projects developed by a small number of individuals to long lasting projects involving a range of stakeholders. Such stakeholders include organisations such as public policy makers and universities, as well as firms that may be competitors outside the project. It examines several elements of projects, including:
                  1. Project Success: in what ways can we measure project success? How does this differ depending on whether we consider long term vs. short term success? What does success mean for individuals, firms, and other stakeholders?

                  2. Managing Projects: what dimensions of project management are key? How does the novelty, technology, complexity, and pace of the project affect the way it should be managed?

                  3. Reinventing Projects: what is the role of projects in managing creativity and innovation? What are emerging trends in managing projects in non-traditional ways? How can organisations learn and innovate using projects?

                  4. Projects in a Digital World: The rise of digital technologies has affected firms not only in Information and Communication-based industries, but an increasing number of sectors. How do such digital technologies affect projects, and how can firms use and respond to digitisation?

                  Description

                  The International Master of Science in Quantitative Economics (IMSQE) is an elite programme at the Department of Economics and Business Economics at Aarhus BSS. Students tailor their own study programme on the basis of a range of advanced courses with a quantitative orientation, including selected PhD-level courses. The programme requires strong analytical skills in quantitative methods, and there are special requirements regarding the level and qualitative content of written assignments. A particular emphasis is placed on the students’ analytical and quantitative skills.

                  Career Opportunities  

                  Graduates who complete the IMSQE programme acquire analytical skills at a very high level. These are in increasing demand. Potential future employers of these graduates are international and Danish organisations, consulting firms, ministries and government agencies, and financial institutions such as commercial banks, mortgage institutions, pension funds, insurance companies and investment banks. The IMSQE programme also provides an excellent opportunity for candidates to continue their studies at PhD level. For students who wish to continue on to the PhD programme, a special arrangement is provided to bridge the transition from the IMSQE programme to research training.

                  About the Degree

                  The IMSQE programme provides its students with a number of outstanding qualifications. You will acquire analytical skills at a very high level. You will therefore be able to apply the methods you have learnt to new cases, to formulate new theories, to formulate and test hypotheses, and to reflect upon the validity and relevance of various scientific methods and substantive theories within the field. To do this, students need to be able to think independently, not just to reproduce known material.  

                  The aim of the IMSQE programme is to provide candidates with advanced-level training within the analytical, quantitative disciplines of macroeconomics, microeconomics, economics, econometrics, and finance and accounting. The IMSQE programme aims to recruit within quantitative economics and management in competition with such leading institutions as the London School of Economics, Oxford University, and Cambridge University.

                  Description 

                  How were Christianity, Judaism, and Islam formed? How did these three religions and their interaction shape the emerging European culture and society? These are pivotal questions addressed in the MA programme on the Religious Roots of Europe. 

                  Career Opportunities    

                  Graduates of the Religious Roots of Europe programme can move into careers in government or in organisations dealing with culture, integration and diplomacy, as well as private firms with business relations with the Middle East, for example. They can also move on within the academic world to apply for PhD programmes, or teach in religion and intercultural relations. 

                  About the Degree

                  Christianity, Judaism, and Islam interacting with one another have profoundly influenced the development of European culture and society. For centuries, Christianity has been the dominant majority religion; as minority religions, Judaism and Islam have been seen as the ‘other’ against which Christian European identity has been shaped.   

                  The three religions have traditionally been studied more or less separately. The aspiration of Religious Roots of Europe is to study the three religions together in their formative periods from a comparative perspective, using historical, philological, social scientific, and literary approaches, among others
                  .

                  The MA programme is offered in collaboration with the four Nordic universities of Aarhus, Copenhagen, Lund, and Oslo. Compact seminars are organised at each of these institutions as well as in Nordic institutes in the Mediterranean area. The Religious Roots of Europe programme offers a truly international education and perspectives for a subsequent career in research and education, as well as in governmental and private institutions, where the need for knowledge of religion and culture is increasingly recognised. 

                  The Religious Roots of Europe programme is small, which means that there is close contact between students and teachers, leading to an informal and consultative study environment. There is also a programme of research seminars and guest lectures.  

                  Admission  

                  To find out more about admission to the MA in Religious Roots of Europe please visit the programme’s website.

                  Sri Lanka is a typical Buddhist country with Buddhas in temples and markets, valuable ancient monuments, and monks dressed in saffron robes. But it is also an island with different religious traditions living side by side in harmony and conflict. Religious pluralism is seen in rituals such as pilgrimage, fire walking and individual prayers, where Buddhism and Hinduism in many ways merge as living religions. Differences between Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam and Christianity are recognised through peaceful diversity or aggressively acted out as religious and ethnic exclusivity or even violence.

                  The summer school will give the students a deeper understanding of 1) Hinduism and Buddhism as living religions in contemporary perspective, 2) Religious diversity in theory and practice, 3) The relationship between religion and culture in an Asian context, 4) Religion and materiality and 5) field work in practice. The course consists of two periods: a period (over two months) with virtual supervision and a period (12 days) in Sri Lanka. Knowledge of Indian religion (primarily Hinduism and Buddhism) at introductory level is required. Course material will be uploaded before the course.

                  The course investigates imagery and visual cultures of the natural sciences and art, and is aimed equally at students from the humanities and science programmes. The course’s focus is contemporary practices of visual culture in science and in art and especially how these practices relate, differ and compare in the 21st century. We will work with questions like: When, how and why do scientific images prompt aesthetic experiences in its audience? And when, how and why do they not? What is, theoretically, the difference between a scientific graph and an oil painting that represents the same thing? What characterizes a good diagram and why is a pretty diagram not necessary aesthetically satisfactory? How does art use visual culture from science and vice versa?    The purpose of the course is to provide students from the humanities and the natural sciences with a broader as well as deeper knowledge of scientific imagery and visual culture.  

                  The students gain knowledge about image practices and visual cultures in different disciplines, which provide the students with insight into new ways of generating, utilizing, analyzing and interpreting images. The course enables students to bring those new insights back to their core discipline and apply them fruitfully in their future academic work. Students are not expected to have any cross-disciplinary experience (humanities-natural science) prior to the course.

                  In today’s tough job environment more people are choosing to become entrepreneurs. One of the more popular ways to do this is to start up a retail store – either physical or online. The main objective of this course is to enable students to develop a full retail plan that they can use to begin a new business venture. In the process, students will learn not only how to plan a retail business, but how to deal with retailers from a business-to-business relationship. In this exceptionally competitive environment, the majority of retailers are still small to medium sized businesses – many operated by entrepreneurs with little training or education for the task. To survive, operators continually need managers who are familiar with retail operations to survive and become profitable. Students will develop a retail plan that is competitive in the environment that they choose (Aarhus or another geographic location).

                  About the Degree

                  The MSc in Science Studies is open to students with a science bachelor’s degree who are seeking a wider perspective on how the natural sciences have developed in their interaction with society and contemporary culture. The programme includes the following themes building on the bachelor’s science background – history and philosophy of science; science, technology and innovation; science and society; and science and communication.   

                  Students in the programme will learn to understand the social and philosophical implications of science, the forces that drive technological change, and contemporary developments within research and within the public understanding of science. Knowledge of the development of science and the ability to analyse science in a cultural and societal context can be useful in many different situations. Graduates may seek to be communicators, presenting the challenges and opportunities that science represents through the media. This knowledge of the interaction between natural sciences, technology and society is relevant in public administration, in business and industry, and in many kinds of organisation.

                  The Centre for Science Studies has excellent study facilities, including the new shared library for science studies and many natural science programmes. It is notable particularly for its extensive collection of books and journals in the science studies field. The centre is small, which means that students work in close collaboration with the academic staff, and it has gained a reputation for a lively social life.

                  Six Sigma Design (DFSS) & Innovation methods provide complementary approaches. When strategically linked these yield customer-driven, highly resource efficient processes and products with almost perfect performance. Integrated DFSS, Innovation, and Lean approaches provide a highly structured strategy for acquiring, assessing, and activating customer, competitor, and enterprise intelligence that lead to superior product, system or enterprise innovations and designs that provide the organization with a sustainable competitive advantage. Useful background for this course includes exposure to introductory statistical methods and quality management principles. Relevant software will be provided.  Six Sigma integrates strategies and tools from Statistics, Quality, Business, and Engineering and has added billions of Euros to the bottom line of organizations across the financial, healthcare, military, manufacturing, and other economic sectors. Its focus divides into two significant branches that share a number of tools, techniques and objectives, but often apply the tools and techniques differently.

                  The Innovation branch focuses on significant innovation /redesign in or of existing products, processes, and systems while the second branch, referred to as Design for Six Sigma, is directed at design of new products, processes or systems. Six Sigma has developed largely in parallel with and complementary to Lean Enterprise Theory & Methods with a result often referred to as “Lean Six Sigma” wherein radical innovation in and/or design of products, processes and systems is approached through a “lean lens” that is intended to be highly resource sensitive. This course emphasizes both Innovation and Design for Six Sigma with a “lean and green” mindset and utilizes a team based project focus.

                  Description

                  The MSc degree in Statistics is a flexible programme that builds general competencies in statistics while allowing students to specialise in the particular branch of statistics of their choice, such as one of the areas in which Aarhus University is particularly strong – theoretical and applied statistics, and probability theory.

                  Career Opportunities    

                  There is an undersupply of statisticians. Statistics graduates from Aarhus University are very much in demand, and their employment prospects are extremely good, whether in Aarhus, other major Danish cities, or overseas.   

                  Recent statistics graduates have taken up careers in universities and research institutions, in the pharmaceutical industry, in the telecommunications and finance sectors, and in insurance companies. In universities, statistics graduates frequently work with doctors, biologists, or chemists in an interdisciplinary setting analysing large amounts of data, while others teach statistics. Within the pharmaceutical industry, statisticians plan clinical trials or design methods to test new drugs for unwanted side effects. In insurance, statistics graduates often work as actuaries, for instance contributing to working out tariffs.   

                  Common to all these careers is that they require knowledge of a number of advanced mathematical models, and that is what the MSc in Statistics will equip you with.   

                  Graduates can also apply to enter the PhD programme

                  About the Degree

                  Teaching on the programme is greatly influenced by research, as the lecturers are active researchers. In addition to lectures, instruction includes theoretical and practical exercises.   

                  The Statistics programme at Aarhus University is characterised by a strong focus on theoretical aspects. Incoming students are required to have a strong background in advanced probability theory based on measure and integration theory.


                  Students in the programme are based at the Department of Mathematics, which has its own canteen, computer rooms, library, and study areas shared by students. As a Master’s student, you will receive your own desk in an office shared with other Master’s students. The department also has a number of student organisations such as Euler’s Friends and the Kalkulerbar or Friday bar, through which academic activities, study trips, and social functions are organised.

                  Admission

                  Innovation is the cornerstone of successful organizations and economies across the globe. Consider the growing pace at which we witness change in the natural environment as well as in the technological, commercial, social and geopolitical landscapes. This velocity is fueling the need for innovation, and the pace is expected to intensify in the foreseeable future. Successful management of creativity and innovation is therefore critical in achieving sustainable competitive advantage. Most organizations have recognized this, but only a few have truly mastered the art. Managing innovation requires specific skills, which remain uncommon. T

                  his course is geared towards those interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the issues underpinning creativity and innovation in organizations, as well as the ways in which creativity and innovation can be developed and managed successfully. While theory frameworks will be reviewed during this course, the primary aim is to equip participants with state-of-the-art practical skills required to foster creativity and to design and execute sustainable innovation strategies.  As such course participants will be involved in a hands-on innovation project and a series of workshops where they will develop their understanding of creativity and innovation methodologies. By the end of the course you will have experienced the innovation process from unlocking your and your team’s creative potential and generating the initial idea to designing successful solutions and business models.

                  The Renaissance Humanism of 15th century Italy became formative for many of the central ideas of modern Europe. New directions in politics, philosophy and science originated, developed and spread through the Humanist movement. Arbitrarily enough this movement was staged by its founding fathers as a return to antiquity and the ideals that were to be called Classical. In the course Text Memory Monument we examine this movement, its use of the past, and its expressions in art and literature.  

                  The aim of this course is to provide you with a broad, interdisciplinary insight into the Italian Renaissance Humanism, its central ideas, media, and mechanisms through studies of the literary and visual culture of the period. You will be reading Petrarch and Castiglione, marveling at works by Michelangelo and Bramante, discussing inscriptions, prints and manuscripts as well as Neo-Platonism and self-fashioning together with students from several disciplines under the guidance of international experts. On occasion of the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation, the course also examines its effect on the Roman Church through its art and literature.   

                  The course has two phases: 15 May-8 July: During this first, virtual part of the course, you will obtain digital access to the course curriculum that you are expected to read before you go to Rome. You are also expected to formulate a research question and start working on your assignment during this period. In order to assist this process you will be assigned a supervisor. S/he will help you develop your research question and supplement the general reading list with relevant literature for your particular topic.  10-23 July: on-site part in Rome, Italy: We take advantage of the setting to learn from works of art, architecture, inscriptions and manuscripts around Rome in a combination of excursions, lectures and tutorials.  The exam is a take-home assignment on a topic of your own choice. As basis for the exam paper students are required to compose individual syllabi with the help of their supervisor.  Submission date: 20 August

                  Cognitive neuroscience is an emerging interdisciplinary field of study, which is concerned with the neural substrate of mental processes. It is at the intersection of cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, and neuroscience, combining theories of cognitive psychology with modern neuroscience methodologies. The aim of this course is to give students an understanding of modern theories of brain organization and functioning and how these relate to cognitive processes in both healthy and pathological populations. A specific focus this year will be on the bi-directional relationship between psychosocial factors and diseases. Thus, we will investigate mechanisms of various diseases including heart disease, cancer, mental diseases and the common cold. This will give the students an in-depth understanding of the strengths and shortcomings of a wide variety of approaches in the investigation of brain-cognition processes

                  The students will be evaluated on a literature review and research proposal based on a pre-determined topic done in small groups in which they will need to apply theories and methodologies relevant to the field of cognitive neuroscience. At the end of the course, students will present their projects.  Our International guest lecturer will be Professor Yori Gidron. Yori Gidron trained in Israel and later in Canada and has taught in Israel, Portugal, the Netherlands, France and the United Kingdom. He is now a professor at the Free Dutch-speaking University of Brussels in Behavioral Medicine studying health and biological psychology and cancer. In his research, he has focused on the function of the vagus nerve and has shown in several high impact studies that the activity of this nerve plays an important role in the prediction of the outcome of the cancer.  The course will be very interactive and include ongoing search tasks and debates. At the end of the course the student will be able to:
                  • Present and discuss theoretical backgrounds of cognitive psychology and neuroscience and their relationship
                  • Describe common research methods within the field of cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, and neuroscience.  
                  • Evaluate findings within the field of cognitive psychology and neuroscience.
                  • Critically review scientific publications dealing with cognitive neuroscience.

                  From the outside, the European Union (EU) often gives the impression of being a messy political unit. Just think about the recent refugee crisis. Almost on a daily basis the public learned about new proposals to tackle the crisis from different politicians representing the European Commission, the European Council, and the European Parliament. While the Commission proposed a strategy to resettle refugees to share the burden across member states, many members of the European Council and the European Parliament disapproved the proposal. In general, it seems that decision-making at the EU level suffers because too many actors and institutions are involved in the process. Yet, the EU is also regarded as a successful political project that not only secured peace between European nation states but also increased the wealth of their societies. These contrasting experiences raise a fundamental question. Why is the EU tremendously successful in some areas, while it completely fails in others?

                  To answer the question, we take a close look at the history, institutions, decision-making processes, and policy areas of the EU. Using a variety of teaching and learning activities such as impulse lectures, panel discussions, policy simulations and quizzes this course offers a research-based and also applied insight into how the EU works. By the end of the course, participants know about the nature and role of the EU, its policy-making processes, and central institutions. In sum, participants gather important knowledge about the EU that they can use in future jobs or as a foundation for further specialization in EU politics.

                  Target audience
                  The course is open to Bachelor students with little or no prior knowledge about the EU.

                  Why Viking Age Scandinavia? During the Viking Age (c. 750-1050 AD), peoples from Scandinavia suddenly entered the scene of the world known at the time and were to leave their mark in European history. Beyond the clichés of the pagan warrior, raiding and plundering, the Viking Age stands as a dramatic but also formative period documented by a wealth of written accounts and archaeological remains. Sailors and explorers from Scandinavia discovered and colonized Iceland, Greenland and North America, hereby expanding the borders of the known world. They also contributed to the development of trading networks and to complex political games and alliances across Western and Eastern Europe, from Ireland to the Caliphate in Bagdad. At the same time, the societies in the Viking homelands, which later would become Denmark, Norway and Sweden, experienced fundamental cultural, religious and political transformations. In this course, we will explore the Viking age as a complex and multi-facetted phenomenon, to get closer to the roots of our never ceasing fascination for this page of European history.

                  Vision is the most essential ingredient of leadership. This course illustrates how visions arise out of collective decision-making, naturally leading to socially accepted leadership. Visions are based on business narratives that provide a coherent interpretation of the past pointing towards a direction for the future. This course understands the emergence of business narratives with the aid of established decision theories from economics, sociology, group psychoanalysis, management and cognitive science. This course covers the following topics:
                  1. Alternative theories of collective decision-making from economics, sociology, group psychoanalysis, management and cognitive science: Rational decision-making, group and social pressures, instinct-based decision-making, bounded rationality.
                  2. The Garbage Can Model of organizational choice. A computer-based simulation showing unexpected organizational outcomes of individual behavior.
                  3. Decision-making as coherence-seeking. Arranging available evidence into networks of causal relations in order to arrive at shared decisions.
                  4. Visions and narratives. Constructing coherent interpretations of the past that provide orientation for the future. Positive and negative organizational narratives.
                  5. Leadership based on a shared vision. Collective foundations of individual leadership. Leadership, organizational identity and pride

                  Today’s visual culture is heavily dominated by digitalization and computation: Not only are the majority of images that we look at digitally created and/or presented, they are also circulated and modified digitally, and this influences how we handle and understand images. The course allows students to work on two overall and interrelated strands: How do we understand and analyse digital and computational images (from private Snapchats to CCTV in public space and satellite maps in the daily TV weather report)? And how do new technologies alter the way we understand and use images on a more general, cultural level? For instance: What are the cultural implications of fact that traditional maps are now split into Google street view imagery on the one hand and pure GPS-data on the other? Or, what do we consider to be a visually accurate portrait of person today – a selfie or a graph showing the person’s biometric data? The course is aimed at students from the field of visual culture (including e.g. art history, visual anthropology etc.) as well as students from computational/digital fields. Through the course, visual culture students will gain better understanding of the practical, analytical, and theoretical implications computational thinking poses to visual culture, and student from computational/digital fields will gain a better understanding of images and visual culture.  The course will apply a cross-disciplinary approach that enables students from different disciplines to mutually benefit from exchanging existing knowledge, but students are not required to have cross-disciplinary experience prior to the course. The course combines the study of visual culture with the broad field of computational thinking, understanding and reflexion.

                  This is a hands-on, learning-by-doing production course, in which participants will make two short fiction films with guidance and feedback at every stage of the creative process. The main focus is on storytelling though production values will of course also count.

                  Students will work in teams, with generally five participants per group, and in addition to learning basic principles of script development, will gain experience with such tasks as casting, location scouting, directing actors, camera work, lighting, sound recording, editing, etc.

                  There will be instruction in the use of our semi–professional cameras and editing program, and no previous experience with production equipment is necessary.

                  After a few introductory lectures, the course will consist primarily of group work with feedback from the teacher and professional filmmakers. There will be no exam per se. Grades will be based on the productions and a report, 6-8 pages per participant.

                  This course can count as a HUMfag and all discussions will be conducted in English.

                  The first class meeting will be held on July 16th and the last one on August 10th. Between those dates, there will be work virtually every day. The reports will be due on August 17 but will be sent as electronic files and participants in the course will not have to remain in Aarhus after August 10th.

                  A xenobiotic is a chemical substance that appears in a biological system where it is not naturally produced or expected to appear. Xenobiotics are used in agriculture (pesticides) and can appear as contaminants in agricultural systems (pharmacological compounds, hormone-like chemicals, heavy metals, persistent organic pollutants and environmentally harmful natural chemicals). Xenobiotics can be injurious to the environment and/or to biological organisms. The course is designed to give the students the tools for understanding and evaluating the fate of xenobiotics in agriculture, and the effect of unwanted residues of xenobiotics on diverse biological organisms (insects, plants, mammals).

                  Humans are very persistent and creative when it comes to altering their consciousness. For example, there is a long tradition in the Northern parts of South America for using Ayahuasca to establish contact with spirits, treat illnesses and divine the future. Segments of the working population in India have long used cannabis to dull the pains and tribulations of their workaday lives and induce moments of respite and well-being. And the Sufis are known for their use of whirling dance ceremonies to achieve ecstasy. Among contemporary European youth, alcohol and other drugs are the preferred means of altering consciousness. These substances are mainly used on weekends in what is often referred to as the “night-time economy” or the “booze economy”, which includes pubs, bars, nightclubs, and music festivals. This course explores the link between youth, drugs and the night-time economy. Some of the key questions that will be discussed are the following: Why do young people intoxicate themselves? What are the most popular drugs among youth and how do these drugs affect the human organism? What are the positive and negative outcomes of drugs? How are drugs marketed and sold in the night-time economy? How can drug abuse be prevented and treated? The course will introduce students to a wide array of scientific and theoretical approaches to the study of drugs. Each of these approaches will be explored in-depth with a special view on how they can improve our understanding of why young people across the world so eagerly and consistently intoxicate themselves.
