Career Opportunities  

The specialization gives a solid, coherent knowledge about business economics in an international perspective. In addition the course of studies is an ideal foundation for further training and specialisation. 
Bachelors in Business Administration (BSc) and masters in business administration (MSc) have excellent opportunities for employment in companies of all types. By far the majority gain employment in the private sector, in industry, trade and service, but business organisations and public enterprises also employ graduates with these degrees. 

About the programme

The business world is becoming increasingly internationalized. Today, this goes not only for major conglomerates, but for many small and medium-sized companies as well. This development challenges the received ideas about knowledge of business economics and language skills.   
This profile enables you to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. You will obtain solid language skills in addition to a comprehensive knowledge of business economics in a global as well as a regional context. Students of many different nationalities study alongside Danish students creating a truly international atmosphere on campus.  


The programme addresses all of the basic subjects of Business Administration, i.e. courses developed at university level in Organisation, Corporate Finance, Marketing, Accounting, Business Law, Business IT, Statistics as well as Micro-and Macroeconomics. In addition, the programme offers specialised courses on a range of international, European and regional topics.
During the third year, students have the opportunity to choose a company internship or a study term abroad taking advantage of our extensive network of partner institutions.
The programme ends with a bachelor’s project during the sixth term. This offers you the opportunity – usually in collaboration with a business or an organization – to put into practice the knowledge you have acquired. The project therefore makes it possible for you to specialize in one or the subjects or one of the areas you have become particularly interested in during your studies.
