Advanced Methods and Techniques in Plant Science and Biotechnology


Description

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)
  • Understand and employ advanced technologies in plant biotechnology such as genetic modification and molecular genetics.
  • Have gained practical hand-on experience with advanced techniques and equipment within plant science and biotechnology.
  • Understand and employ bioinformatics and statistical tools in plant biotechnology.
  • Plan and conduct experiments within plant biotechnology.
  • Develop strategies and models to solve problems relating to plant biotechnology by using fundamental principles in plant biotechnology and genetics.
  • Explain the use of biotechnology in plant breeding.
  • Put into perspective and discuss the potentials of plant biotechnology and breeding for achieving a sustainable agriculture, nationally and internationally.
Through the course, the student will gain an understanding of the practical use of and theory behind the newest techniques within the field of plant science and will be able to employ that knowledge to solve problems within agricultural plant production through biotechnological approaches.
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.

Please note that the course is taking place at Research Centre Flakkebjerg, situated in Southwest Zealand, 10 km south of Slagelse and 100 km west of Copenhagen. Direct phone number Søren Borg +45 87 15 82 83 E-mail: soren.borg@mbg.au.dk

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 the management of border systems and the workings of the nutrient cycle. In the second year, students will have the opportunity to apply this knowledge in their thesis project.

An Ideal Learning Environment

Denmark, a country that produces three times as much food as it consumes, is an ideal location for studying agricultural systems. Its agricultural history and long-standing strict environmental regulations mean that students have many practical examples and a large existing body of research to draw from. Aarhus University is alone in offering this specific 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.

Careers  

Graduates of this programme go on to work in advisory services, for city or regional governments, 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 earn a PhD.

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.

Cross-Sectional Knowledge and Approaches

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.

An International Learning Environment

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 will have a chance to learn from leaders in sustainable food production, and Danish students can learn about conditions outside Denmark.

Careers  

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

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.

A Transdisciplinary, Research-based Teaching Environment

The MA in Arab and Islamic Studies is taught by faculty members from the Islamic Cultures and Societies Research Unit (ICSRU). The ICSRU is a transdisciplinary research unit for all Aarhus University scholars who are interested in Islamic cultures and societies, both within the Islamic world and transregionally. The central mission of the ICSRU is 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.

Careers  

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 within local government or in aid organisations within 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.

Astronomy

Description

Measurements flow 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.

Research and Collaboration

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 with researchers from the European Southern Observatory, the European Space Agency, and NASA.

Specialisation

The programme is both practical 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.

Student Life

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. 

The department also has many social and academic associations with their own festive traditions. They organise events like the ‘hat party,’ celebrating the most recent graduates. There is also the Physics Friday bar, where students get together at the end of the week to enjoy a drink and a catch-up.

Careers  

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, e.g. 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 either the private sector or public research institutions, e.g. at universities, the European Southern Observatory (ESO) or the European Space Agency (ESA).

Audio Drama i Teori og Praksis (In Danish)

Beskrivelse


Audiodrama i teori og praksis er et tværfagligt kursus, der sætter fokus på lyd og fortællinger.
Målet er at give den studerende kompetencer i at formidle drama og fortælling i lyd, i  at analysere og i at reflektere kritisk over det auditive drama som kulturel produktionsform. 
Kurset er praksisbaseret og omdrejningspunktet bliver produktionen af små audiodramaer, som skal give grundlæggende indsigt i de særlige udfordringer, der knytter sig til lydproduktion, både på et teoretisk, et produktionsteknisk og et auditivt æstetisk niveau.

Kurset vil desuden give indblik i audiodramaets historik og diversitet og også tegne et billede af den mediekontekst, der har skabt grundlaget for det aktuelle og mediespecifikke audiodrama, som for længst  har lagt afstand til sceneteatret og fundet egne udtryks- og formidlingsformer.
Indholdet vil veksle mellem arbejdet med produktionsopgaver i grupper, korte workshops i optageteknikker, dramaturgi, instruktion, redigering og lyddesign, samt teoretiske diskussioner hvor der reflekteres over produktionerne i relation til teori, analyse eksempler og forskellige lytteøvelser. 
Kursets første og sidste uge vil være onlinebaseret.
Teoretiske og analytiske diskussioner tager i vidt omfang udgangspunkt i de problemstillinger man møder i udførelsen af de konkrete produktionsopgaver. Teoretisk tages der afsæt i blandt andet Sound Studies, hvor teori om auditive medier, soundscapes, stemmer, lyd, audiodesign, musik og mediespecifikke udtryksformer kombineres i en forståelse af den auditive kultur.  
Kurset henvender sig til studerende på æstetiske fag (musik, litteratur, teater/dramaturgi, film, medievidenskab, digital design),  på journalistiske uddannelser,  på professionsuddannelser (sonic college, transmedia, animation, multiplatform production).
Sted: Via College, Filmbyen 4, Aarhus

Bank Stress Testing in Practice

Description

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.

Beyond Information: Exploring Engaging Stakeholder Communication

Description

For three decades - ever since the appearance of Grunig and Hunt’s (1984) two-way symmetric model of public relations – scholars and practitioners have grappled with the concept of dialogue, and how it might provide mutual benefits for, and respect between, organizations and their stakeholders.  This concern has not diminished over time. As stakeholder guru Freeman argues in his book Stakeholder Management (2010), the importance of stakeholder relationships is increasing as the business environment becomes ever more complex, uncertain, and turbulent. Stakeholder power is of course also being fuelled by the increased use of Internet and, more specifically, social media platforms.
 

The aim of this course is to provide you with a constructive learning environment in which to gain insights into current theories surrounding dialogue and stakeholder engagement, and, not the least, to explore real life examples of organizational attempts to incorporate dialogue and engagement in their communication efforts. Cases will stem from a range of settings, including campaigns, citizen participation efforts and social media sites.  They will illustrate, for example, the bridging strategy in issues management, stakeholder management in CSR strategy formation, web 2.0/social media as a forum for dialogue, staff participation in internal communication, and public participation in government policy work.

Bioinformatics

Description

A fusion of biology, statistics and computer science, the MSc in Bioinformatics programme explores the development and application of computational solutions for analysing and handling biological and biomedical data. A successful bioinformatics solution combines theoretical and practical knowledge from several areas of science, including biology, statistics and computer science – a network of competencies that students will acquire through this programme.

Finding Solutions

The field of bioinformatics plays a key role in modern biology and biomedicine, fields in which collecting and analysing large data sets is essential. 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.

Student Life

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.

Careers  

Graduates with a Master’s in Bioinformatics are prepared not only for jobs as bioinformatics specialists in the biotechnology industry, but also in additional areas in which computational skills in analysing large amounts of data are essential. They are also in demand among employers in the IT industry as potential software developers.

Cognitive Semiotics

Description

Humans experience things as meaningful; we learn by experience, we think, reason, and find new insight. We also, in addition to comprehending meaningful phenomena, constantly produce meaning through communication, science and art. On the MA in Cognitive Semiotics, we study how meaning is created in every sense of the word, whether in perception, thought, or language.    

The goal of the programme is to enable our students to come up with well-substantiated answers to questions such as: What are the essential characteristics of meaning construction? How does it work in language, in perception, in our interaction with the natural world, and in the social world?

Students acquire a solid, operational knowledge of the most important aspects of meaning making, and since human meaning construction is found in all the areas of our daily lives and activities, the programme is very transdisciplinary.

Modules

The programme consists of five main modules: the Cognition and Semiotics module, the Cognitive Linguistics module, the Mind and Cognition module, the Cognitive Aesthetics module, and the Experimental Cognition module.

Insight-giving Education

Our aim is not just to deliver research-based instruction, but to do ‘instruction-based research’ – in other words, to give competent students the opportunity to actively contribute to ongoing research projects and participate in organising and making presentations at conferences.
Similarly, we expect students to be rationally questioning, constructively critical, active, eager for knowledge, and hard-working. We know that we have the framework for a highly qualified and insight-giving education in human meaning construction. But it is the students who make sense of the framework, by filling it with commitment, enthusiasm and intellectual curiosity. Anyone who fulfils these criteria is welcome at the Centre for Semiotics. In return, we promise to take your education a very important step further.

Student Life

The MA in Cognitive Science is taught at the Centre for Semiotics in a very international and informal environment. Our extensive network of international contacts means that we regularly have visits and seminars from academics who can impart expert knowledge in many areas including cognitive science, classic and modern semiotics, philosophy, cognitive psychology and linguistics, and aesthetics. The Faculty of Arts and Aarhus University also organise a wide range of events for students including lectures, student fairs and career days.

Careers  

Graduates of the MA in Cognitive Semiotics have gone on to pursue careers in fields as diverse as communication, advertising, and marketing. Some graduates also move on into teaching or research.

    Admission

      Corporate Entrepreneurship

      Description

      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

      Description

      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.

      Curating, Staging and Exhibition Analysis

      Description

      Museums and other cultural institutions are at the moment challenging conventional forms of exhibitions, concerts and theater production. This can be seen as a response to a contemporary culture, which is directed towards live events, a blurring of former boundaries between the art genres and new types of knowledge production, aesthetic experience and social participation. The course focuses on three issues: 1: a new concept of curating drawing on recent developments within the cross-disciplinary field of the curatorial. 2: exhibition theory and new understandings of exhibitions as complex platforms for the production of knowledge, shared spaces, and affective encounters. 3: the communicative aspects of these complex new formats and the use of digital technologies for developing new educational and participatory formats.  
      The course aims to develop insight into the new discourses around curating, staging and exhibition analysis. It will provide students with competences in practical as well as critical and theoretical approaches to contemporary cultural staging. Students will thus gain competences in analyzing exhibitions and cultural events as dynamic, public-creating platforms and as crucial sites for the negotiation of identity today.
      Teaching will vary between lectures, class discussions, and group work, out of campus visits, guest lectures and supervision. The course terminates with a seminar, which will be co-organized and co-curated with the students.

      Current Issues in International Human Rights Law

      Description

      “Human rights” – everyone seems to discuss them, but few seem to understand them, or utilise them correctly. Whether it’s the war in Syria, resulting in millions of refugees looking for safety, or the Greek financial crisis, or cuts to welfare benefits, the term “human rights” is often used but not often well explained.
      International human rights law is about the way the international community answers serious questions about the relationship of individuals to the state, and the relationship between individuals living together within a community. This course will examine current topics in international human rights law, drawing on relevant news and events from 2016 to consider what human rights law actually says – rather than what it sounds like through the media and politicians looking to score big headlines.
      The course will combine the theory of human rights law with practical applications, concentrating on binding legal standards and the cases that have been used to interpret these standards.
      The course is in English, allowing students to develop their knowledge while practicing with a working language of the UN and relevant international courts and tribunals. The course is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills appropriate for private or public legal service.

      Deaf Studies

      Description


      This two-part course is taught in International Sign with interpretation to English.
      The course in Deaf Studies consists of two independent one-week courses. The first part (week 1) provides a global overview of Deaf Studies, taught by Annelies Kusters, social anthropologist working in Göttingen, Germany. The second part consist sof a more specialized course in Deaf Bilingualism, taught by Krister Schönström, International Sign linguist from Stockholm University. 

      Deaf Studies Around the World
      Teacher: Annelies Kusters, Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity, Göttingen, Germany.
      In this course, the students will be introduced in the discipline of Deaf Studies. Central in this overview is an exploration of themes that have been investigated and a critical examination of the theoretical frameworks and concepts that have been used (such as Deaf culture/community/identity/space/networks/sociality, Deafhood, Deaf Gain). The students also will gain insight in the discipline’s different “waves”. While the first wave of Deaf Studies persistently tried to identify and define “deaf community”, “deaf culture” or “deaf identity” as clearly delineated units, themes explored by researchers in the second wave are “deaf epistemologies” and “deaf ontologies”, in which the embodiment as a deaf person is central. The third wave of Deaf Studies builds upon and extends the second wave’s research by arguing that this embodiment is central not only in the study of the research participants’ experiences but also in terms of the researchers’ positionalities and their relationships with deaf research participants and deaf communities. Decidedly, research in the third wave is also more global in focus. This overview will establish the framework for the remainder of the course in which recent ethnographic research will be discussed, covering all geographic areas and all kinds of deaf spaces including Europe, USA, South-America, Africa, and Asia; urban and rural locations; deaf schools and organisations; temporary deaf spaces such as in pubs and public transport, deaf events and tourism. Throughout the whole course, ethnographic and visual research methods in Deaf Studies will be discussed as well. 

      Deaf Bilingualism
      Teacher: Krister Schönström, Department of Linguistics, Stockholm University.
      This second part of the course will look at some key topics associated with bilingualism in the deaf. General topics from the research in bilingualism and second language acquisition will be combined with topics from the research in deaf bilingualism. The course will specifically include issues related to the acquisition of signed and written/spoken languages. The course will also discuss issues in bilingual deaf education and deaf bilingualism from a societal point of view.

      Design and Entrepreneurship in Organisations for Societal Change


      Description

      Design and entrepreneurship in organizations for societal change is an interdisciplinary and process-oriented Summer School that connects five different organizational environments with ‘ReThink’ – the theme of Aarhus2017 European Capital of Culture. The aim is to rethink these organizations in relation to societal change by “building on what currently exists, while also exploring whether things can be done differently. The theme RETHINK provides Aarhus2017 with the opportunity to create a ‘cultural laboratory’ in the whole region where innovation and alternative solutions can develop and take root.” (http://www.aarhus2017.dk/en)
      In the course we explore and redesign five different organizational environments in entrepreneurial ways.  These five environments represents different core areas of society in Aarhus:
      1.      Culture/municipality (Dokk1)
      2.      Public space/shops (The passage between Main train station and Bruuns)
      3.      Business/startups (StartupLab)
      4.      Education/students (Nobelparken)
      5.      Media/communication (TV2 Østjylland)
      Students will through the course work proactively with rethinking organizational environments through taking designerly and entrepreneurial approaches. The result will be concrete entrepreneurial redesigns of these organizational environments presented as an event at one of these organizations. This event also counts as the final examination.
      The course alternate between weeks of lectures and workshops at the campus (week 1 & 3) and project weeks in groups at the sites (weeks 2 & 4). All projects are carried out in groups of 4-5 students. The result of this will be the production of a work-package for the final event consisting of: 1 academic poster, 1 video-pitch, 1 pecha kucha, 1 prototype/model of the redesign. No technological, design or entrepreneurial competencies are required for this course. Just interest and dedication in relation to the course subject.
      Weeks 1 and 3 (25 - 29 July and 8 - 12 August): Lectures and Workshops at the campus. Weeks 2 and 4 (1 - 5 August and 15 - 18 August): Project Weeks

      Digital Business Innovation and Social Media

      Description


      The course focuses on understanding how business professionals use information technologies for fostering innovation in business models and products and services, and collaboration among professionals, with special emphasis on social media tools and related business models.
      The course starts introducing main concepts and social media tools, including the mobile revolution and the emergence of cloud computing, explaining how companies are using these tools within different contexts, and preparing students with general skills to take their knowledge further in different situations.
      The course brings theoretical frameworks to understand innovation and knowledge creation and sharing, discussing how digital technologies as a whole and social media in particular have been used by entrepreneurs. Through lectures, presentations and workshops, students explore relevant theories and case studies to understand social media tools, such as social networks, blogs, mini-blogs, mashups, file sharing, wiki tools, forums and virtual communities, reputation tools, social bookmarking etc. Particular attention is given to matching tools and specific content to different business strategies, giving examples related to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Wikipedia, SlideShare, Flickr, Google Maps, YouTube, De.li.cio.us, Technorati, Amazon and eBay rating systems, among others.
      Keeping in mind the idea of building strategies, the course explores the role of social media in knowledge management and collaboration, customer relationship management and marketing. In addition, the course shows how social and organisational structures and institutions affect the outcomes on using social media, and the ethical implications of interacting through these interfaces.
      The course also discusses the risks of social media, from damaging reputation to breaking privacy rules and risking liabilities for mismanagement of information. Individuals and companies alike are appropriating social media tools sometimes with no knowledge about risks and liabilities. The course discusses how risk management should be part of any strategy on social media.
      The course aims to show students how to benefit from social media, from personal and professional perspectives, fostering entrepreneurship and capacity of innovation. In addition, the course prepares students to manage the risks inherent to the use of social media, in individual and organizational levels. In sum, the course is important for the broad education of students, preparing them to be innovative and critical in the adoption of social media technology.

      Digital Living: Identities and Complexities

      Description

      In this course, participants will explore the topic of digital living by reading and discussing key issues, concepts, and theories of identity in digital contexts. Attitudes about social media and the forms of social life that emerge with them range from enthusiastic to suspicious. Scholars discuss the issues in different ways. On the one hand, we benefit greatly from our connection to technologies. People can experiment with new personae, new social communities. We have access to more information than ever before, which allows us to acquire more in-depth knowledge, if we seek it out. On the other hand, the “always on” state of the mobile internet (smart phones, e.g.) plus the rise of social networking sites (Facebook and Twitter, e.g.) prompts many critiques. Are we better off? What happens when our everyday activities via the internet are under surveillance? How do the algorithms of Google influence what we are exposed to? The course will take up these questions and issues. Students will read contributions from internationally leading scholars in order to investigate ‘digital living’ and the opportunities and challenges that come with social media and the internet.

          Economics and Business Administration - Innovation Management and Business Development

          Description

          Innovation has become an imperative not only for most private firms, but increasingly also for the public sector. Therefore, innovation management is considered one of today’s world’s most important competencies by CEOs and governments alike.

          This programme offers a general background in innovation management, including the management of innovation from invention to commercialisation; innovation strategies, structures, and cultures; market forces of innovation and market-oriented new product development; the management of intellectual property rights and entrepreneurship.

          The MSc in Innovation Management and Business Development provides a unique opportunity to experience the challenges of product development processes and to develop an understanding of the rationales on both the technology and the business management side. There is broad empirical agreement that such a multidisciplinary understanding is a key prerequisite for successful cooperation between R&D and marketing, and ultimately for innovation success. The aim of the programme is therefore to enhance students’ understanding of strategies, structures, processes, people and cultures so as to drive successful innovation and enhance the innovative capability of organisations.

          Strong Competencies, Future Job Opportunities

          The programme will provide you with the competencies and skills you need to fill managerial positions in both producer companies and consulting firms, working specifically with planning and implementation of innovation strategies, creation and advancement of innovative processes, and development of new businesses.

          In large companies, graduates of the programme have become champions for innovation by bridging the gap between R&D, production and sales activities, thereby supporting and shaping the innovation culture.

          In small and medium-sized companies, our graduates have acted as entrepreneurs, combining technological know-how with a profound business understanding.

                Description

                This programme aims to give students a broad introduction to a number of economic, legal and organisational issues within the field of business. In addition to business issues, the programme also considers socioeconomic aspects and the interaction between economics and business administration. 

                In specific terms, students learn to analyse a company’s financial problems and issues and to develop business strategies.

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

                Economics and Business Administration - Management Accounting and Control

                Description

                Management accounting is fundamental to business administration. The MSc programme in Management Accounting and Control covers management accounting techniques and their application in production companies, service industries, and in the public sector. The programme highlights the role and performance of the management accountant, both locally and in an international context.

                Improving Decisions

                The Management Accounting 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 aim to be used for communicating financial events in the organisation, influencing decisions on resource allocation, and for improving insight and feedback to the management of the organisation.

                Programme Structure

                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 the ones who work are the ones 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.

                Social and Academic Activities

                Aarhus BSS hosts a rich and varied programme of activities for you as a student, both study-related and social.

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.

                  Quality Teaching in an Informal Setting

                  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.

                      English

                      Description

                      English is an international language – it is the native language of around 350 million people and the second language of many more. As the language of globalisation, it enables you to communicate across borders, whether in culture or commerce. Today, the private job market, public institutions and PhD degree programmes require English language skills and knowledge of the Anglophone world. You will acquire these competencies in the Master’s programme in English. In this degree programme, you will learn to use English at a high international level and gain in-depth knowledge of the history, culture and social conditions of the English-speaking world.

                      Insight Into An Entire Culture

                      Lectures, classroom lessons, group work, and presentations by you and your fellow students will give you an insight into the language and culture of the English-speaking countries, both past and present.
                      By analysing literary works, films and societal development, you will gain insight into the culture and identity of different periods of history. You will examine how history has been written, interpreted, and rewritten in the modern world. You will gain an understanding of the way cultural phenomena can influence the film industry and how film, in turn, can influence cultural phenomena. You will also learn about the development of language, and the challenges and pitfalls involved in translating from one language to another.

                      Careers

                        Entrepreneurial Finance

                        Description


                        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.

                        European Studies

                        Description

                        Europe is becoming more and more important. While Europeans become more closely connected, Brussels is making 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.

                        New International Perspectives

                        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.

                        Work Internationally and Interculturally  

                        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.

                        Admission  

                        To find out more about admission to the MA in European Studies please visit the programme’s website.

                        Evolution, Literature and Film

                        Description

                        Over the past forty years, the evolutionary perspective has gradually developed into an explanatory framework that encompasses all things human: anatomy, physiology, behavior, and the products of the human mind. The evolutionary human sciences are now entering a mature phase. They have developed a sophisticated understanding of basic human motives and the logic of the human life cycle. The one most important weakness in much evolutionary psychology, until recently, has been an inadequate understanding of “culture,” and especially of “imaginative culture”: religion, ideology, myth, the arts, and intellectual life. That weakness is now being corrected by evolutionary thinking emerging from the humanities. Evolutionary studies of literary works have been entering a phase of mature command. This course is designed to acquaint students with the total set of ideas that enter into a biocultural understanding of prose fiction, graphic narratives, and film.

                        Anthropology

                        Description

                        The programme provides you with a thorough foundation in anthropological theory and analysis, an understanding of ethnographic approaches to the study of cultures and societies around the world, and a strong grounding in research methods and their interface with contemporary practices. With a focus on today’s quickly modernising world, this Master’s programme challenges the classic understanding of basic human conditions and the way they change by working with a comparative perspective and studying social and cultural conditions.

                        There are three tracks in the MSc programme in anthropology. All of them are taught in English:
                        •   General Anthropology (both a Danish and English track)
                        •   Medical Anthropology and Glocal Ethnography
                        •   Visual Anthropology

                        In the first and second semester, you will take both theoretical and methodological courses in addition to elective subjects. In your third semester you will have the possibility to gain practical experience by doing anthropological fieldwork or by doing an internship at a Danish or international company or organisation. Many students draw on material and data from their fieldwork or practical training when they choose their supplementary subjects and thesis topic.

                        General Anthropology

                        This track builds on a classical anthropological approach, studying man as a social and cultural being as well as the way people interact with one another. Its structure allows you to specialise in the topics that interest you. This could be a specific topic, for example integration, visual culture, religion and politics, or change processes, or you can specialise in the cultural issues relating to a specific area such as East Africa, North America, or South-East Asia.

                        Medical Anthropology and Glocal Ethnography

                        This track, grounded in anthropological theory, introduces you to today’s global medical issues. It investigates the role of biomedicine at all levels of society – from the individual to the global. In using the concept ‘glocal,’ we direct attention towards the unfolding of biomedicine (including biotech sciences) in dynamic global–local interlinkages.

                        Visual Anthropology

                        This track provides training in the practical and theoretical skills you will need to take part in visual anthropological debates about the workings of human imagination and perception in diverse cultural settings.

                        Game.Play.Design: ReThink


                        Description

                        GAME.PLAY.DESIGN is an interdisciplinary, playful and process-oriented Summer School that revolves around digital games, digital gameplay and digital game design. 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 design, discuss and critically reflect on digital games through the lens of the student’s profession in a generative way. Through discussing and playing with core concepts in gamedesign and -analysis, through designing and playing our own games, as well as through critically rethinking the role and potentials of games for and in society, the course grapple with digital games as phenomenon, practice and design. Through working in interdisciplinary groups, students engage the potentials of gamedesign through theoretical, empirical and practical work. The aim of the course is to combine theory and practice in playful and innovative ways in order to rethink the potential of a certain context (e.g. a firm, a library, a school, a store, a playground or a family home) through gamedesign.
                        All Game.Play.Design projects are carried out in interdisciplinary groups, composed as to amplify the output in both gameplay thinking and design. Last time the course ran, the interdisciplinary groups’ work resulted, among other things, in a company buying and developing a student group gamedesign concept, a student developed gamedesign exhibited at the Storm P Museum in Copenhagen, good press coverage and employment of students in game companies.
                        In 2016 the course has a special focus on 'ReThink(ing) gameplay' in tribute to Aarhus being the European Capital of Culture. 
                        "RETHINK means that we build on what currently exists, while also exploring whether things can be done differently. The theme RETHINK provides Aarhus2017 with the opportunity to create a “cultural laboratory” in the whole region where innovation and alternative solutions can develop and take root."
                        We will through 'Game.Play.Design' work proactively with this, rethinking the meaning, design, interactions and experience that gameplay can hold.
                        The course will end in an exhibition and reception at Dokk1 simultaneously functioning as the course examination.
                        Weeks 1 and 3 (25 - 29 July and 8 - 12 August): Lectures and Workshops at the campus. Weeks 2 and 4 (1 - 5 August and 15 - 19 August): Project Weeks.

                        Geophysics

                        Description

                        The MSc in Geophysics at Aarhus University provides a compelling learning experience. Students get to choose their own specific area of focus while exploring a variety of fields including quaternary structures and materials, groundwater aquifers, the structure and dynamics of the lithosphere, the development of sedimentary basins, and the numerical modelling of geodata.

                        High-Calibre Research

                        Teaching on the programme is integrated with research at the highest international level. The Department of Geoscience is renowned for its research in hydrogeophysics (airborne and surface electromagnetic methods) for use in hydrogeology and mineral exploration. A further speciality is reflection seismic acquisition (on board the research vessel Aurora), processing and interpretation, as used in subsurface mapping of hydrocarbon and geothermal reservoirs, seismology, potential fields, and numerical modelling of surface and mantle processes. 

                        The thesis, which is heavily weighted, is a chance for students to tailor their degree to their own personal and career interests while benefiting from close collaboration with fellow students and faculty members.

                        Student Life

                        The Department of Geoscience is a small community of about 200 students brought together by shared research, team field trips and common interests.

                        Classes are held in modern facilities with well-established labs. You will have access to cosy study areas, quiet reading rooms, wifi, computers and, of course, a classic Danish pop-up Friday bar. As a Geoscience Master’s student, you will also have access to a communal office where you can sit and study, or just hang out with other students.

                        Careers  

                        Geophysics graduates have found jobs across a wide range of fields, including groundwater management, geophysical exploration for water and minerals in engineering companies and in the energy sector (including oil and gas), and for geothermal energy and CO2 deposits. They also frequently move into higher education and government research.

                        Global Entrepreneurship


                        Description

                        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.

                        About the Degree

                        This is a summer course that counts 5 or 10 ECTS.

                        Global Management and Manufacturing

                        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.

                        A Broad Engineering Programme

                        The GMM degree is a broad engineering programme combining the disciplines of production, sourcing, product development, economics and management. Global markets and companies are in focus during the study period, including Danish global companies such as Grundfos, Siemens Wind Power, Arla and LEGO.

                        Subjects and Profiles

                        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.

                        Company Connect

                        What is truly unique about GMM is that each student is associated with a company with which they work closely from the third to the seventh semester. This is called Company Connect and it means that students solve tasks in relation to their studies, and that they can try out theories, models and concepts in the context of real, practical problems in the company. In this way students gain numerous opportunities to confront theory with practice during their studies.

                        Further Education

                        An additional two years of study result in a Master’s degree. At the Department of Business Development and Technology (BTECH) students may choose the MSc in Engineering – Technology-Based Business Development. International programmes in engineering management, supply chain management or management are also possible.

                        Student Life at Campus Herning

                        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.

                        Career Profile  

                        Graduates are well placed to challenge the international market and find employment as production managers, quality engineers, environmental engineers, technical managers, logistics managers or project managers, in both European and internationally oriented companies.

                        Globalising your Business - How to Conquer the World?


                        Description

                        In today’s business world the survival of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) can depend on their abilities to utilise the advantages of globalisation and/or to defend against its negative effects. Quite often internationalising the firm is the only way ahead. However, companies contemplating internationalisation need to understand that there are advantages to it (from supply, demand and innovation points of view) but also costs involved in entering a new market and managing that process.
                        The course will guide the students through the steps a small company should take before and after deciding to expand their activities beyond the boundaries of their home country. By using the case study of a fictional SME, operating in the electronics sector, the students will have to decide about the best way to internationalize this company and select the country (or countries) offering the best potential for its further development. To achieve the competences to solve the case, the students will learn about the global business environment, comparing countries based on culture, risk and resources related factors, using and applying several frameworks, theories and databases. After carrying out a weighted analysis based on the real life information and data they collect as a small group, the students will present their findings to their peers.
                        This course will help students to critically analyse, evaluate and appraise the factors which constitute and influence the global business environment. They will learn about the complex and often unpredictable variables and contexts important to international business. Along the way the students will learn interesting, exciting and fascinating facts about several countries and the way they conduct business. The course will also provide students with critical awareness of the pervasive issues – including sustainability, globalisation, corporate social responsibility, diversity, business innovation and risk management.

                        Håndværk og Epistemologi i Etnografisk Tekst (In Danish)

                        Beskrivelse


                        Kurset tilbyder en praktisk tilgang til skrivning af etnografisk tekst samt en diskussion af etnografisk validitet, teksters virkemidler og mere grundlæggende spørgsmål om, hvad vi “ser", når vi gør det, vi kalder at observere. Det er ikke et formidlingskursus, men en epistemologisk diskussion af etnografiske skriveprocesser og en undersøgelse af de observationer, de må bero på. Ved at inddrage fysiske øvelser, tegning og litterære virkemidler skal vi blive bedre til at se og til at notere og senere beskrive, hvad vi ser.
                        Kursusdagene vil bestå af forelæsninger, øvelser samt diskussion af øvelser og læste tekster. Pensum (ca. 600 sider) skal læses på forhånd. Der bør forventes hjemmearbejde udover undervisningstiden i de uger, kurset foregår.
                        Den studerende vil erhverve sig følgende kompetencer:
                        - Evne til at foretage præcise og fagligt relevante observationer af konkrete hverdagsbegivenheder.
                        - Evne til præcist og levende at beskrive fagligt relevante observationer.
                        - Evne til selvstændigt at reflektere over en konkret beskrivelses relevans for en given faglig analyse.
                        - Evne til selvstændigt at reflektere over en given teksts skrivestil og validitet ud fra et udvidet kendskab til central diskussioner om repræsentation indenfor antropologi og relaterede videnskaber.

                        Healthy Entrepreneurship and Innovation


                        Description

                        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.  
                        The entrepreneurial process holds four major elements:
                        • Understanding your own means – who are you, what do know and whom do you know? (Sarasvathy 2001, 2008)
                        • Finding problems and creating opportunities (Spinoza, Flores and Dreyfuss 1997, Alvarez and Barney 2006)
                        • Qualifying products and creating a business model (Osterwalder and Pigneur 2010)
                        • Realizing value and pitching to relevant stakeholders (Wilmot and Carlson 2006)

                        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

                        History - Global and International History

                        Description

                        History plays a major role in shaping and creating our society and our current reality. History is always with us: it forms our everyday life, our view of the world. On the Master’s programme in History, you will study how history is used today to predict and create the future. You will develop the ability to identify and analyse historical means and rationales, and you will learn how to pass this knowledge on. The Master’s in History allows you to explore several different historical periods, topics and individuals over the course of the programme. Through a vibrant mix of lectures, practical training, elective courses in other departments, and communications training, you will become familiar with the ways in which history has shaped the present. The master’s programme builds on your solid knowledge of history acquired in your bachelor’s degree and forms the basis of the further development of your academic skills and profile.

                        Your Own History Degree

                        You will have a great deal of influence over the structure and direction of your course of study, whichever track you choose to specialise in for your master’s degree. You will shape your degree through your choice of subjects, including project management, communication, the use of history, a social science theme, specialisation in narrowly defined or general topics in history, or practical experience acquired during a period of training in a high school or in a private-sector company or internship. You therefore have a say in which subjects and topics you want to concern yourself with, how much work experience you want to acquire, and what courses you want to take.

                        International Track

                        On the Master’s programme, the international track in English – International and Global History (track A1) – is open to both international and Danish students. 

                        Careers

                        The International and Global History track provides students with solid analytical and research skills, a strong capacity to process and present information critically and reflectively, and sensitivity to complex historical, political and cultural issues. As well as providing a firm foundation for further academic study, the programme is an excellent basis for careers in government, journalism, international organisations and NGOs, as well as libraries and museums.

                        Graduates of the programme enter the job market with general competencies ranging from teaching and communication to specific skills such as project understanding, project management or research. You can also choose to apply your comprehensive knowledge of the history and cultures of the Western world to work with intercultural issues and contexts, in public or private sector companies.

                        Human Security

                        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.

                        Challenging Conventional Understandings of Security

                        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.

                        Highly Qualified Lecturers from Four Departments

                        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.

                        Strong Competencies, Future Job Opportunites

                        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 the programme will develop 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, governmental development organisations, UN organisations such as UNHCR or UNDP, and development consultancies.

                        Identity and Privacy

                        Description


                        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). 

                        About the Degree

                        This is a summer course that counts 5 or 10 ECTS.

                        Information Studies – Digital Living

                        Description

                        The Aarhus University MA in Information Studies–Digital Living looks at how digital technologies are used in everyday life. The programme is an opportunity to consider how we might design better futures by exploring the intersection of networked sociality, organisational practices, and IT design.

                        Internationally established professors in digital culture studies give their expertise on the social impact of digital technologies. Computer scientists work with students to develop hands-on knowledge of how digital forms of communication and interaction are designed and programmed. Professors from information and media studies help students build a strong grounding in the political, social, and economic structures of twenty-first century organisations and institutions.

                        A complex skill-set

                        The digital living programme comprises a unique combination of skills aimed at understanding, analysing and working with social and mobile media – including business analysis, project management, programming, and work methods that generate knowledge within the field.

                        Students gain basic technical knowledge of web development skills, APIs, and mobile media, which helps them understand the technical side of digital media and its potential. Courses are designed to help students engage and become active citizens and critical consumers in a digitally saturated life. Students acquire analytical and practical skills in qualitative methods and quantitative analysis, business analysis, organisational theory, project management, social media, and system development and programming.

                        Student Life

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

                        Careers

                        Graduates from the Digital Studies – Information Living programme have a strong understanding of value creation and the complexities of digital technologies in cultural contexts. With these skills, our graduates find jobs using and developing social media internally within companies or as part of their external infrastructure, in both private and public sectors. Previous graduates have also found jobs as community managers, social media managers, search-engine management consultants, digital business managers, project consultants, service designers, creative technologist consultants, online marketing managers and digital producers – and more.

                        Get hands-on ethnographic fieldwork experience in one of the most diverse societies in the world
                        This course will provide training in interdisciplinary ethnography, using the field as a social laboratory. Anchored in immersive participant observation, students will be introduced to an interdisciplinary approach to ethnography which blurs the boundaries between traditional dichotomies like qualitative/quantitative, sciences/humanities, and field/lab. The course will also examine key methodological, epistemological, and ethical issues pertaining to the study of culture and working with human subjects. Furthermore, it will involve a series of field trips and lectures on Mauritius, its diverse culture, and its fascinating history.
                        The course takes place in Mauritius, a small tropical island nation in the Indian Ocean. Mauritius lies between places and traditions. Geographically, it belongs to Africa, although it is located 1500 miles from the continent. Historically, it has been colonized by the Dutch, French, and British, all of whom have left their marks on the local culture. And demographically, it is one of the most diverse societies in the world. Its inhabitants draw their ancestries from various places in Asia, Africa, and Europe; they speak a great variety of languages, including French, English, and the Mauritian Creole; and they practice a multitude of religions, among which most prominent are Hinduism, Catholicism, and Islam. Such diversity makes Mauritius an ideal “social laboratory”.
                        In this course, you will acquire skills pertaining to:
                        Designing, conducting, and reporting a field study 
                        • Key methodological and epistemological issues pertaining to the relation between ethnographic and experimental work
                        • Ethical issues in working with human subjects
                        • A basic knowledge of Mauritian culture and history
                        Training will be provided in the form of lectures, workshops, fieldtrips, and hands-on empirical work.

                        Venue, Travel and Accommodation
                        :
                        The couse takes place in Mauritius. Students are required to pay for their own travel and accommodation, but will be offered the opportunity to rent rooms in local houses at very low prices. In addition to lowering costs, this will also help the local community and provide a unique chance to experience authentic Mauritian culture.
                        The course is taught by anthropologist Dimitris Xygalatas and a team of Mauritian and international lecturers.

                        International Studies

                        Description

                        Students on the MA programme in International Studies can look forward to a truly cosmopolitan experience. It all starts with a group of classmates from around the world, then extends to a richly diverse team of academic staff – individually specialised in different faculties, globally versed across a range of complementary subjects.

                        The programme takes an interdisciplinary approach to global affairs. Through project management and internships, students build strong practical skills specifically tailored to understanding global complexities and navigating current events.

                        Ready To Take On The World

                        The programme was designed in response to the globalisation of the job market. The aim is to prepare students with the skills – practical, theoretical, social and cultural – they need to succeed when working internationally.

                        The MA in International Studies at AU is a cutting-edge take on global affairs which fuses a top-down and bottom-up approach. Students are encouraged to have an open mind while building strong but flexible knowledge in preparation for a variety of real-world scenarios.
                        Underpinned by a humanist approach, this degree is a useful complement to a range of bachelor’s degrees across the humanities, social sciences and international studies.

                        Student Life

                        With more than half the programme’s students coming from abroad, the MA in International Studies promises to be a cultural experience as well as an educational one. Expect to hear conversations in many languages and interact with many cultures around campus. The department has its own classic Danish pop-up Friday bar, organised with students from other international programmes.

                        Careers

                        With their combined academic and practical training, graduates leave this programme equipped with the knowledge and confidence they need to meet the challenges of the dynamic and complex world we live in – ready to work anywhere in the world, in the public or the private sector. Alumni of the programme are working as diplomats, project managers at NGOs, international organisations and government agencies, researchers in universities and think tanks, and consultants with companies, both in Denmark and internationally.

                        Selection Criteria

                        As the Master’s programme admits only a limited number of students each year and is very popular, meeting the admission requirements does not in itself guarantee admission to the programme.
                        The admissions committee assesses each applicant on the basis of the average mark or GPA of the bachelor’s degree at the time of application. Marks obtained after the application deadline will not be included in the GPA. Furthermore, the academic background is assessed in relation to the course content of the programme.

                        Introduction to Interactive 3D Graphics

                        Description

                        In this course the participants will be introduced to interactive 3D graphics. 3D graphics is used in interactive applications such as games, product presentations, spatial interactive experiences and art. Hardware accelerated 3D graphics through the modern Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) is accessed through APIs. In this course we will utilize the WebGLAPI available in most modern browsers through Javascript - although the topics are directly applicable to standard OpenGL on other platforms.
                        This course will give an introduction to the basic mathematical concepts, API structures, and computer graphics concepts necessary to build your own interactive 3D graphics application form the ground up.
                        The modern graphics pipeline is fully programmable, hence we will learn the GLSL programming language to write “shaders”. We will also look into basic topics such as transformations of vectors between the many “spaces” involved in computer graphics – as well as the transformation of geometry, textures and shaders into final rendering through the programmable graphics pipeline.
                        Finally we will specifically learn how WebGL is controlled through javascript – and can be used to create stunning visual experiences and games directly in the browser.

                        Journalism, ICT and Digital Media

                        Description


                        What is interactive journalism? How do you design applications? How do you add visualisations to your story? What are the best new tools to create digital content? Why do we need data journalism? What is an algorithm and why it is important for news circulation? How is social news different from online news? 
                        Few would argue that this is not the time of profound change in digital journalism and media. Mobile media and web 2.0 affordances have changed the formats, tools, interfaces, practices, and platforms of content production. Old ways of doing journalism do not apply, and new ways of producing digital content and multimedia packages to different platforms (online, mobile and tablets) are only just emerging.
                        This course focuses on technological innovations in digital journalism, and how ICT-related features modify journalistic storytelling in the multimedia environment.
                        The aim of the course is to give both a conceptual, methodological and learning-by-doing, hands-on understanding of digital journalism and computational thinking.

                        The course will introduce the students to:
                        1) digital and social innovations in media digital journalism
                        2) computational thinking and new hands-on practices in relation to media and digital journalism
                        3) research methods to analyze and assess the new digital journalism and media environment (multimedia storytelling, infographics, data-journalism, visual storytelling, news applications, and APIs)

                        The course is divided in three different parts:
                        1) An introduction to ICT, journalism and digital media
                        2) Methods and concepts for analyzing digital media and journalism
                        3) A hands-on journalism project based on ICT innovations in digital journalism

                        For each of the following activities, we explore, analyze, and produce media content:
                        1) Students are introduced to examples of industry-based innovative it-based journalistic projects
                        2) Students are introduced to methodological and analytical tools to assess the quality of it-based journalistic projects
                        3) Students are introduced to the technological tools to innovate and produce it-based journalistic projects

                        Language and Marketing

                        Description


                        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. This course provides a range of interdisciplinary contents and sources recent empirical research. It has a high practical relevance for applied research on marketing communication. Apart from reviewing experimental studies, we analyze and discuss several cases, e.g. on pharmaceutical marketing and ‘Google AdWords’. Selected research questions to be discussed 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 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. Therefore, they acquire basic background knowledge in central areas of psycholinguistics and marketing communication. The practical aim is that students learn to apply this new knowledge analytically and constructively to solve authentic problems in market research and advertising. As a by-product, this course provides training in important skills such as reading and comprehending research articles, giving informative and concise presentations and teamwork.

                        Language Description and Linguistic Fieldwork


                        Description

                        The summer school course in language description and linguistic fieldwork will give you a broad introduction to the practical and methodological aspects of fieldwork, and the art of language description. It will also provide insight in the structures of two unfamiliar languages. The course consists of two parts: a structural course on a non-familiar language and fieldwork workshops with a speaker of an underdescribed language.

                        Intensive course in a non-familiar language. The language chosen will have a range of properties unfamiliar from European languages. This course will teach the structure of the Australian language Warrwa (Nyulnyulan), a moribund language of the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The course is not geared towards conversational competence in that language, but to insights into the structure of this language. Phonology, morphology, syntax and more will be covered. Nyulnyulan languages form a small family (non-Pama-Nyungan) of about ten languages, none of which is presently viable. Some of the interesting and/or unusual features of Nyulnyulan languages, including Warrwa, are: optional ergative case marking, the existence of two person-number systems in the pronouns (one for free pronouns, the other for bound pronouns), “free” word order, a system of verb classification coded in a compound verb construction, an unusual (for Australia) system of verbal conjugation, an applicative construction, and a complement construction expressing the desiderative.

                        In this part of the course, students will learn theoretical, ethical, methodological and ethnographic aspects of linguistic fieldwork. The course is aimed at the grammatical description of a non-Indo-European or non-European language. Students learn how to organize a fieldtrip, collect linguistic material, and analyze aspects of the sound system and grammatical structure of a language. The use of recording equipment, available software and other practical matters will also be dealt with. The workshop will consist of classes by an experienced teacher and fieldworker and practical sessions with a speaker of a non-European or non-Indo-European language. The workshop language will be different from the language in the structure course.

                        Leadership, Management Strategy and Business Ethics

                        Description


                        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

                        Leading and Designing Organisations

                        Description

                        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.

                        Linguistics

                        Description

                        The MA in Linguistics at Aarhus University explores the various different aspects of language through project-based research under expert supervision. The programme examines the structure of languages across the world and their development, psycho/neurolinguistics, functionalist theories about language, and interactional linguistics.

                        A Close Community

                        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.

                        Student Life

                        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 also be active in the programme degree committee, where students and staff make decisions on matters relating to academic affairs.

                        Careers  

                        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, speech therapists, developers of language technology, and specialists in endangered languages and, of course, in public relations.

                        Programme Structure

                        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.

                        Management Information Systems


                        Description


                        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.

                        Mathematics

                        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.

                        Research and Specialisation

                        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.

                        Student Life

                        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.

                        Career Prospects

                        Graduates from the Department of Mathematics find work across a wide range of fields and institutions, such as finance, communication or 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, where they analyse large amounts of data, or in 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.

                        Mathematics - Economics

                        Description

                        Have you thought about how rates for a new mortgage loan should be fixed – with an interest-rate ceiling or as interest-only loans? In fact, it was mathematics–economics graduates who developed the model used for fixing the cost of such loans. All major companies face complex problems, and many turn to a mathematics–economist to solve them.
                        Mathematics–economists are experts in designing optimisation strategies, something that requires great theoretical insight into both economics and mathematics. As a student of mathematics–economics, you have the option of specialising in a subject within a broad area, including one of the areas of mathematics–economics in which Aarhus University is particularly strong: mathematical finance, economics, and operations research.

                        Specialisation and Study Programme

                        The MSc in Mathematics–Economics is taught at the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Economics and Business. Students specialise through course activities and projects and through a thesis.
                        Students structure their own individual study programme in consultation with a lecturer.

                        New Venture Creation

                        Description

                        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.

                        Description

                        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: 
                        • Introduction to Galaxy, GATK and Samtools.

                        Organic Agriculture and Food Systems

                        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.

                        An International Double Degree

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

                        Students spend one year at their chosen home university and one year at their chosen host university, and receive degrees 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.

                        An Ideal Study Environment

                        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.

                        Career Profile

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

                        Organizational Behavior, Collective Mind and Leadership


                        Description

                        One possible understanding of organizational behavior is that it captures the ability of an organization to make decisions as a unified body that does not coincide with any of its members, not even the CEO. Of course, disagreements, feuds and compromises occur all the time, yet the overall outcome is never precisely a composition of individual wills and strategies. Rather, decisions are made by a complex organism whose components are human beings linked to one another by behavioral routines, i.e., little myopic actions that individuals undertake towards one another which to some extent repeat themselves over time. Sequences of such actions may span lines of individuals that close themselves in a loop, making routines repeat themselves indefinitely as it may happen, e.g., within long-standing relations between customers and suppliers.


                        In the seemingly different field of cognitive sciences one observes relatively simple cells, the neurons, giving rise to such a complex object as the human brain by virtue of billions of connections that enable information to circulate along loops. Neuroscientists have discovered that brains do not store information at any particular place, as computers or libraries do, but rather make it circulate along closed loops. Thus, stored information can only be accessed by other information items which happen to circulate in neighboring loops. This is what we do whenever we associate ideas, employ mnemonic rules or suddenly discover novel possibilities by intuition. The conclusion to be drawn is that human brains work by drawing analogies and associating insights, not by means of algorithms.

                        This course explores organizational behavior in light of the insights provided by cognitive sciences. Organizational decision-making is viewed as drawing analogies between organizational routines and the external environment. Leadership is understood as the ability to draw analogies that allow individuals and organizations to construct coherent narratives that explain the past and provide a direction for the future. This understanding of organizational decision-making is particularly relevant for innovative firms that have to create new markets for new products.

                        Psychodynamics frameworks and agent-based computer models are employed in order to provide students with tools to analyze practical contexts. Applications to routines in jazz music groups and narratives construction in firms creating new markets are suggested.

                        Philosophy

                        Description

                        Philosophy, in exploring the facts and fictions of theoretical and practical rationality within science and society, provides the interpretive discourses and logical tools that allow us to generate and maintain transparency in how we reason about what we are and what we do.

                        The MA in Philosophy programme offers advanced courses in the principal areas of contemporary professional philosophy. The guiding principle of our curriculum is to offer our students a learning environment that encourages specialisation, but never to lose sight of the general philosophical competencies that comprise an exceptional philosophical education.

                        Specialisation

                        The programme is divided into four tracks that reflect the departmental areas of active research and allow students to pursue their interests at an advanced level, in both the analytical and the continental tradition of philosophy:
                        • Track A: epistemology, metaphysics and philosophy of cognition
                        • Track B: idealism and post-idealism
                        • Track C: ethics, legal and political philosophy
                        • Track D: philosophy of science and technology in society (taught in Danish)  

                        Students concentrate their efforts on the core courses and research labs offered in one of the tracks. Core courses provide advanced introductions to relevant areas of the current research discussion. In the research labs, students practise their research skills, explore ideas, and engage directly with ongoing departmental research activities. The MA thesis is produced interactively under the supervision of experts.

                        Student Projects 

                        Our most important teaching tool is individual project development, typically in the form of a research talk or course paper. We invite our students to actively pursue an individual project, and we accompany them through all steps of the project development.   

                        Student Life

                        The Department of Philosophy promotes an interactive and lively learning environment. It has its own library and reading room and shares lecture theatres, the canteen, and surrounding areas with other fields of study at Nobel Park.   

                        Students can take part in many activities related to the philosophy programme, including the student committee, the philosophical association Philosophical Students Colloquium, a film club, and the Friday bar, Panta Rei (‘Everything is in flux,’ named after the Greek pre-Socratic philosopher Heraclitus). 

                        Career Prospects

                        Employers appreciate that philosophy graduates have outstanding transferable skills in analytical and innovative thinking. Graduates in philosophy can create transparency in complex decision contexts. They can communicate ideas coherently to a variety of audiences. A growing number of our graduates are working as consultants in areas such as IT, communication, organisation, and HR. Some have gone into the public sector to work in administration, management, counselling, the health sector, or project management.

                        Physics

                        Description

                        You adjust the laboratory lasers 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.

                        Focus on Research  

                        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 of Denmark, including a number of the major European laboratories.

                        Specialisation

                        The MSc in Physics programme 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.

                        Careers

                        Graduates from the MSc Physics programme face 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. Most of these, but not all, are working in radiation physics and radiation therapy. Some of our recent graduates are in research positions at universities or public research institutions.

                        Practising Business and Data Analytics

                        Description

                        This course is designed for management graduates based on experiencing a need of the industry for business analytics. Business analytics is an undervalued area, which recently picked up its pace and has demonstrated the impact of its use in businesses and has completely changed the way business is done in today’s world. Business executives and recruiters look for basic and advanced business analytical skills from graduates of almost every discipline. Businesses look for hands on practice, knowledge and experience for almost all type of profiles. This course is designed and meant to build a confidence in the students to demonstrate the required analytical skills, which can add value to businesses, and enhance the profitability of the organizations.

                        Multiple international consulting companies have started a dedicated department on business analytics, and serve the industry in multiple areas of consulting. Many industries have started operating with an in-house business analytics department, which controls the business data completely and works on it to find additional value that can be added to their business, in order to achieve a competitive edge in the market place.

                        The idea is to charge future industry practitioners, i.e. current management graduates, with the practical tools and instruments, which are already commonly available in the field, but which practitioners of today find themselves incapable of using effectively.

                        About the Degree

                        Prehistoric Archaeology

                        Description

                        The Master’s degree programme in Prehistoric Archaeology addresses both small and large questions about the origin of culture, the fates of past societies, and the role of things in everyday life. Traces of prehistoric times in the form of material artefacts are studied with a view to explaining major trends in human history, especially in southern Scandinavia. There is a focus on Scandinavia, but a broader European perspective is also taken into account, from the beginning of the Stone Age to the end of the Viking Age.

                        Interdisciplinary Investigations

                        Humanistic, natural-science and social-science approaches are all used interpreting the material traces of prehistory, with the aim of achieving a holistic picture of prehistoric societies. On the programme, you will attend courses with a focus on a number of prehistoric periods, taking specific themes such as technology and knowledge, war, religion and rituals, or mobility and exchange. You will be able to choose from a range of topics within these general themes. You will become familiar with several different analytical methods for handling archaeological data and general anthropological theory. You will also be able to shape your education uniquely through an internship, by going abroad, or by choosing personal profile courses.

                        Student Life

                        The Department of Archaeology is based at Moesgaard, an eighteenth-century manor house located just south of Aarhus. There is a library, computers, a common room, lounges, a cafeteria, and of course the Moesgaard museum of archaeology and ethnography, MOMU, and its beautiful surroundings.

                        The main association for students within the department is Hikuin. Hikuin is there to ensure your well-being as a graduate student in the programme. It organises academic discussions about your studies and contact with the business community, not to mention the legendary Friday bars and a range of social initiatives. There are also many other events for students within the Faculty of Arts and Aarhus University in general, including lectures, intro days, career days, seminars, celebrations and sports days.

                        Careers

                        The five most common career paths for graduates from the Prehistoric Archaeology programme are excavation work; museum work, as a curator, researcher or communications officer; work in cultural institutions such as archives, exhibition centres, or libraries; work in IT and communication, whether as a web designer or system developer or as an editor or copywriter; and analysis and project management work. You can also apply to continue as a researcher in prehistoric archaeology, with the option of applying for admission to the PhD programme in the faculty’s graduate school.

                        Privacy and Data Protection Law


                        Description

                        The globalization of the world economy, the ever-increasing importance of the Internet, and the growth of electronic commerce have made data protection and privacy law an important area of concern for businesses, governments, and individuals. At present, governments around the world are seeking increasing access to personal data for law enforcement and other purposes; companies are processing huge amounts of personal data; and many individuals publish their personal data on the Internet on a regular basis. Consequently most lawyers and legal advisers will come across privacy and data protection issues sooner or later in their work. Another consequence of these developments is that privacy and data protection law have grown from being national issues to ones of international concern.

                        EU law place a crucial role in this area since privacy and data protection issues are mainly harmonised. However, the divergence EU and US privacy and data protection regulation leads to a lot of complications in the international marketplace, especially when one considers that the volume of personally identifiable information that is exchanged online, a medium that knows no borders. Companies and individuals often face different legislations and are often left confused about what laws are applicable to them. Meanwhile, legislators continue to seek out ways to ensure that the protections that they have adopted will apply even when information is being collected and/or used by entities located outside the national territory. Ultimately, many individuals remain uncertain about the scope of their privacy rights and how to protect them.

                        Quantitative Economics (IMSQE)

                        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.

                        Learning Objectives and Aims

                        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.

                        Working in an International Environment

                        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.

                        Religious Roots of Europe

                        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. 

                        Comparative Perspective

                        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. 

                        A Collaborative and International Programme

                        The MA programme is offered in collaboration with the five Nordic universities of Aarhus, Copenhagen, Helsinki, 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. 

                        A Close and Informal Study Environment

                        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.

                        Careers  

                        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.

                        Admission

                        Retail Management

                        Description


                        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).

                        Second Language Acquisition

                        Description

                        This graduate course provides a survey of current theory and research in second language acquisition. Focus will be given to the major questions that SLA researchers have asked since the beginning of the discipline, and to the tacit and overt assumptions that inform SLA theories and research methodologies. We will examine how different traditions in SLA conceptualize language, learning, and their relation to social and psychological contexts, and how these different understandings translate into research methodology and research practice.

                        The course will also explore how second language learning unfolds in different arenas of social life and in the (language) classroom, and how L2 learning can be advanced through instructional intervention. As part of their coursework, students will read and discuss representative literature, critically review data-based studies, and develop their own research plans for the investigation of an SLA topic.

                        Six Sigma Design and Innovation

                        Description

                        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.

                        Statistics

                        Description

                        The MSc programme 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.

                        Statisticians are in Demand

                        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.

                        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.

                        Student Life

                        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.

                        Careers  

                        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 university, 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.

                        Storytelling som Strategisk Ledelsesværktøj? (In Danish)

                        Beskrivelse

                        ”Den fortællende organisation”, aktørerne i og omkring organisationen som udtryk for ”det historiefortællende menneske” samt de fortællingens elementer, som corporate storytelling trækker på og forstås igennem, udgør fagets genstandsområde.

                        Storytelling, således betragtet som narratologi i et organisationsperspektiv, vil i undervisningen blive tilgået som et centralt instrument til både at skabe strategi og til at kommunikere strategi. Herunder vil der blive fokuseret på:
                        • den narrative vending som en interdisciplinær proces
                        • den intradisciplinære vending inden for corporate storytelling fra narrativer til historier
                        • den fortællende organisations narratologiske værktøjskasse bestående af sproglige, dramaturgiske og diskursive strategier
                        • den fortællende organisations metodiske værktøjskasse
                        • storytelling som situationsbestemt kommunikationsaktivitet udfoldet omkring virksomhedsspecifikke udfordringer
                        • storytelling i forhold til flere af de teorifelter, der arbejdes med på kandidatuddannelsen i virksomhedskommunikation: organisationsteori, ledelsesteori, kulturteori, teori om corporate branding, identitetsteori, forandringskommunikation, CSR-kommunikation, krisekommunikation m.m.

                        Strategic Cost Management

                        Description

                        The course aims at providing the student with an understanding of how management/cost accounting information can support the key strategic management issues and processes in an organization. The course shifts the perspective of cost analysis from a tactical and short-run focus to strategic and long run issues. The relationship between cost analysis and strategy is established by using different strategic management tools. Drawing upon strategic management concepts, the course analyses business problems from a financial perspective, and attempts to establish relationship between cost analysis and strategic management concepts like; value chain analysis, strategic positioning analysis, and cost driver analysis, thereby culminating into the theme of Strategic Cost Management (SCM). SCM evolves as a supporting tool for decision makers involved in planning and implementing organizational strategies. Primarily, the course attempts to make students appreciate the strategic alignment of cost accounting information.

                        Strategic Human Ressource Management

                        Description

                        In the post-globalization business context one notices intense competition; only the most competent and sagacious will survive in the midst of chaos. Managers who lack people management skills are finding it difficult to build a culture of cooperation and high performance, which is the key reason of managerial failures in the present business world. Most companies do claim that their people are their greatest asset. In actuality, however, only some (e.g. Google, IBM, Southwest Airlines, Carlsberg, and British American Tobacco) genuinely practice this mantra through creation of people-centric ambiance. Companies that truly value their human resource (HR) are able to build employer brand, hire & retain competent employees, promote employee engagement, and build a conducive performance culture. Eventually, this approach helps produce the requisite people behaviors, attitudes, and mental models that are necessitated by high performance work systems and company’s business strategy.

                        In this context, this course has been designed with the aim of analysing strategic HR models; emerging HR themes and interventions; as also related scorecards, measures, targets and plans of action. The course underscores a conceptual framework that helps explain why some companies almost always adopt only hard, cost-reduction, and instrumentalist people policies; and in the process remain only short-termist in their approach. It also emphasizes that even several low-cost strategy companies have been following empowering, soft HR interventions for building sustainable competitive advantage.

                        Concretely speaking, three broad sets of issues are focused on in the course: articulating the strategic HRM context and linking it with trusting and empowering culture; discussing and understanding emerging HR focus areas that help promote sustainable competitive advantage;  and aligning the selected HR interventions with business strategy so as to build the employee and customer value proposition. Focus on these issues help shape the desired HR architecture for building a culture of competitive performance.

                        Strategic Management of Creativity and Innovation

                        Description

                        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. This 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.

                        Sustainable Animal Nutrition and Feeding

                        Description

                        The double degree programme in Sustainable Animal Nutrition and Feeding educates students to solve the animal nutrition challenges of the future. As the global demand for food increases and awareness of the environmental impact of agriculture grows, scientists and experts who can come up with solutions are in ever-greater demand. This degree offers a unique programme for very talented students in a high-ranking international research environment that equips them to come up with the solutions of tomorrow.

                        An International Double Degree

                        Students choose courses from two leading European universities (Aarhus University and Wageningen University), and they receive degrees from both universities upon graduation. The Aarhus specialism is an in-depth animal nutrition programme combined with a nutrient cycling programme. While animal nutrition and environmental protection are often studied, few programmes combine the two. This programme couples in-depth knowledge of the environment and nutrient cycling with animal nutrition. It teaches students to be aware of and to minimise the environmental impact of agriculture, while optimising health, welfare and product quality for the animals.

                        Upon completing the programme, students will have an international profile and network as well as state-of-the-art knowledge of their specialism.

                        The farming industry and the environment are global and therefore, it is impossible to address these problems operating within a narrow national framework. Our graduates’ abilities to adapt to changing environments as well as their excellent intercultural communication skills help them to succeed in their careers.

                        Career Profile  

                        Graduates of this programme are in very high demand and can take advantage of Aarhus University’s extensive professional network and strong industry partnerships. Students typically find careers in feed companies, consultancies, government departments and educational institutions.

                        Agricultural Sciences in the Rankings

                        Agricultural Sciences at Aarhus University ranks ninth worldwide in the 2016 US News Best Global Universities Ranking, and eleventh in the 2015 National Taiwan University Ranking. Agri­culture and Forestry at AU is ranked between 51 and 100 in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2016.

                        Sustainable Heritage Management

                        Description

                        The MA programme in Sustainable Heritage Management (SHM) at Aarhus University provides you with the competencies needed to meet the multiple challenges of contemporary heritage management. Working with cultural and natural heritage means being conscious of, and taking responsibility for, the links between humans, our environment and the past. But heritage is also an integral part of the present and a potential resource for the future. Through your engagement with both theory and practice, you will gain the skills you need to work in the exciting, expanding and increasingly complex heritage field. You will be trained in a uniquely interdisciplinary environment to designate, assess, retain and sustain heritage and to develop, revise and innovate the future shapes of the sector.

                        Heritage as Resource

                        The SHM programme qualifies you to analyse and respond to the opportunities, responsibilities, and ethical implications of heritage work, providing not only a sophisticated academic framework, but also a practice-based set of skills. You will learn to tackle the future challenges of heritage management on the local and the global scale.

                        A Highly Interdisciplinary Field

                        Heritage studies and heritage management make up a highly interdisciplinary field, involving methodologies and theoretical frameworks from various disciplines. The SHM programme at AU is anchored in an interdisciplinary research environment based in the archaeology department that includes engaging with scholars from archaeology, anthropology, intellectual history, aesthetics, history, museology, cultural studies, evolutionary studies, and digital design.
                        Thus during your studies you will work not only with material forms of cultural heritage, but also with textual data and, not least, people and their various perceptions of heritage. The programme revolves around and intersects with the new Moesgaard Museum, some ten kilometres outside Aarhus, affording unique collaborative opportunities for students and staff in this university museum environment.

                        Careers  

                        Graduates in Sustainable Heritage Management are qualified for a number of job markets and industries, depending on your area of interest and specialisation. Recent graduates are working in the museum and archival sectors, in planning and development agencies, and in bodies within resource management and capacity building, as well as in tourism and the artistic and creative industries.

                        Technical Geology

                        Description

                        The MSc in Technical Geology is multidisciplinary programme, with courses shared between Aarhus University’s Department of Geoscience and School of Engineering. Within the programme, students will have a chance to dig into nuanced questions about the Earth and its foundation. They will be able to pursue a specialisation in geotechnics, sedimentology, hydrology, hydrogeophysics, or soil and water chemistry.

                        Mixed Teaching

                        As a student of both science and engineering, don’t expect to be spending too much time sitting in a classroom: classroom teaching is mixed in with lots of practical work and field research. You will have many opportunities to do your learning on field trips round Denmark or to Norway or Greenland.

                        The Technical Geology programme promotes an open learning environment. Plenty of time is available for group work and for close collaboration between students, researchers, and professors.

                        Student Life

                        As a small and highly involved programme, Technical Geology welcomes students to one of Aarhus University’s most tightly knit communities – “the geologists.”  Similarly, much of your work in the School of Engineering will be done in groups – so you can expect to build close relationships with your fellow students, not just academically but socially as well.
                        Technical Geology students get to enjoy newly refurbished buildings close to the Aarhus city, housing study areas, reading rooms, wifi, computer rooms, and a classic Danish Friday bar. These new facilities are used for departmental activities, and you will be given a desk in a shared office where you can study, read, or just hang out with your fellow students. Harry’s Cellar is a club for staff and students that is there for you whenever you need to take a break, grab a beer, or simply relax with friends. It has electronic darts and backgammon and live music, and regularly hosts themed events.

                        The university also has a number of popular Friday bars for you to enjoy, and the Tågekammeret association organises celebrations and social events for all science students.

                        Careers

                        Graduating with an MSc in Technical Geology can open doors into a range of careers within the environmental, energy, construction and planning sectors both here in Denmark and internationally. Graduates can seek careers as consultants in engineering firms, in public administration, and working in construction to solve geotechnical tasks.

                        The practical nature of the programme ensures that graduates are equipped with the analytical and strategic skills they need to succeed in today’s competitive global job market.

                        Text Mining the Great Undread - Data-Intensive Methods and Digital Tools for Analysis of Texts in Humanities and Social Sciences

                        Description

                        Texts have always been essential to research and education in the humanities and social sciences. Close reading and detailed interpretation have traditionally constituted the standard approach to texts, that is, we combine qualitative methods and theoretically motivated arguments to a small textual corpus with the purpose of understanding the meaning of that corpus. However, the rapid expansion of digital full-text databases, increasingly faster computers, and advances in language technology are starting to impact the standard approach by offering a new digital and data-intensive paradigm in the study of text. Humanities and social science researchers are beginning to ask new types of questions and propose novel solutions to old problems by using faster and more efficient methods to collect, analyze, and visualize texts.


                        Many students (as well as researchers) experience a lack of digital competences when faced with text mining, that is, the application of tools and methods to analyze large sets of digitized texts. This is unfortunate because text mining 1) enables students to extract high quality information and acquire new knowledge in a fast and efficient manner; and 2) enhances the qualifications of students for a data-driven job market that is relying on the very same tools and methods. Finally, many tools and methods in text mining are in need of a thorough revision by academics who understand the importance of text meaning and context. Academia and industry alike are therefore in great need of students with text mining skills. 

                        “Text Mining the Great Unread” is an introductory level course to text mining tools and methods in the humanities and social sciences, which will supply participants with sufficient knowledge and experience to develop and implement their own text mining projects. The core of the course is a series of hands-on workshops supplemented by lectures and tutorials by international researchers and industry experts. Through the course, participants will become familiar with text mining methods and software for analyzing and visualizing texts. Participants will learn how to write their own text mining application in R and Python. Through the workshops, participants will also be presented with a range of paradigmatic studies and go through explain research design, best practice, and reporting standards. It is possible to work with one’s own corpus, but historical and contemporary corpora (both works of fiction, historical documents and websites) are also available in class. Participants are not expected to have prior experience with text mining (i.e., programming, statistics, or visualization).

                        Text, Memory, Monument

                        Description


                        The Italian Renaissance (c. 1350–1550) is a key period in European cultural history. Italian Renaissance writers and artists were instrumental in modelling our view of the individual, of nature and the surrounding world, and by reviving a number of the literary and artistic idioms of classical antiquity they effectively decided the development of European art and literature for centuries after.

                        This international 2-week summer university course will show how Italian Renaissance Humanism produced a broad spectrum of new political, philosophical and scientific ideas, and artistic developments which became key elements in the formation of modern Europe. It will take advantage of its setting in Rome to explore the relevant sights of Ancient and Renaissance Rome. Teaching will be conducted by a team of experts in Renaissance Humanism, literature, philosophy, language and art.

                        The interdisciplinary scope of the course ensures that a large range of renaissance writers, artists and monuments will be discussed during lessons and visits.

                        Examples of relevant contemporary writers:

                        Francesco Petrarca, Giovanni Boccaccio, Leonardo Bruni, Leon Battista Alberti, Lorenzo Valla, Poggio Bracciolini, Marsilio Ficino, Benvenuto Cellini, Baldassare Castiglione, Ludovico Ariosto, Giorgio Vasari

                        Examples of relevant monuments and artists:

                        The Capitol, St Peter’s, the Vatican, Villa Giulia, Villa Farnesina, Castel St Angelo, San Pietro in Vincoli, Bramante, Perugino, Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Luca Signorelli, Pinturicchio, Piero di Cosimo, Andrea Bregno, Raphael, Giulio Romano, Michelangelo 

                        The on-site course consists of the following modules:     
                        - Places of Power I: the Capitol and the heritage of republican Rome
                        - Places of Power II: the Vatican and the heritage of imperial Rome
                        - Places of study and leisure: palaces and villas, urban and rural lifestyle
                        - Images of man: portraits and biographies
                        - The Papacy and the Ottoman Turks

                        The course has been developed together with the Nordic Network for Renaissance Studies and is organised as a collaboration between the four Nordic institutes and the American University in Rome, and Aarhus University. The teachers are internationally established specialists in their fields. The course is open to qualified students from all countries.

                        Venue, Travel and Accommodation
                        The course takes place in Rome. Students arrange and pay for their own travel. The Nordic Institutes in Rome offer housing at an affordable price (more information will be provided to accepted participants). Participants will be charged a fee of appr. €50 to cover entry fees.

                        The Global Financial Crisis and its Lessons for Theory and Practice

                        Description


                        This course aims to give the student an overview of financial crises over the centuries, background and origin of the crises and recessions which seem to be a perennial feature of free market capitalism. The course will explore why mainstream economic theory has become inadequate as a framework for understanding the financial aspects of contemporary capitalism and the student will get to know the background and origin of the 2008 Crisis, the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression of 1929.

                        The relevance of the ideas of Keynes and Minsky, the lessons of the crisis and policy reform including monetary policy, financial regulation, macroprudential policy, fiscal policy and exchange rate and capital account management will be discussed in detail. Further, the course will cover experiences of policy reforms in the USA, the UK, EU, China and India.

                        Upon completion of the course students will be able to understand the factors that contributed to the Crisis and also its implications for the design of economic policy, short term and long term, in all its multifarious aspects.

                        The Interdisciplinary Summer School on Neuroimaging (ISSN)

                        Description


                        The course is aimed at introducing talented and enthusiastic university students to basic aspects of preclinical and clinical brain imaging. Modern imaging technologies such as positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) will be presented and discussed because they hold a great potential to expand our current knowledge in many life science areas.

                        Embracing the interdisciplinary nature of the field, our program is targeted at graduate university students from psychological, medical and biological sciences as well as the natural sciences (such as chemistry, medicinal chemistry, physics, math, statistics and computer science). The Interdisciplinary Summer School on Neuroimaging aims to provide a solid foundation in state-of-the-art functional neuroimaging methods. The course will cover central aspects of PET and MRI, including experimental design, data acquisition, and computerized data analysis. The program will highlight the most current research in order to illustrate how neuroimaging can be used to test hypotheses and to provide evidence-based answers to issues related to diverse aspects of brain function in both health and disease. Students will be encouraged to interact closely with teachers, both in lectures and in practical laboratory exercises, so that they become better prepared to carry out research projects in neuroimaging and to evaluate published findings.

                        The course is open for both Master and Bachelor students.

                        Viking Age Scandinavia

                        Description

                        During the Viking Age (c. 750 – 1050 AD), Scandinavians suddenly enter the scene of the world known at that time. They were to leave their mark all over Europe and beyond, and contributed to shaping the world we live in today. The Viking Age stands as an essentially formative period of European history. The Scandinavians enter the world known at that time in many different ways. With their discovery and colonization of Iceland, Greenland and America the Vikings expand the borders of the known world. At the same time, the societies in the Viking homelands (Denmark, Norway and Sweden) go through a process of fundamental transformations, leading to the development of important places and institutions. In this way, the Vikings have left their mark and contributed to shaping the world that we are living in today, both in Scandinavia and most of Europe.

                        Viking Mythology: Long Term Structures and Change

                        Deacription

                        The Viking is, to this day, a popular and powerful figure in Western culture. Viking mythology has been popularized in comics and been misused politically with equal success, making central gods and goddesses such as Thor, Odin and Freya widely recognized today. Join this summer course to learn what Viking mythology really is, what our sources are – textual as well as material – and which methods are used to research them. Following the theme of this year, long term structures and change, students will be introduced particularly to the problems regarding the wide span in time and geography that is hidden beneath the seemingly unified concept of Viking mythology.

                        The aim of the course is to provide a broad understanding of Viking mythology through time. The course will introduce students to the sources of Viking mythology as well as interdisciplinary methods and research in the field with a particular focus on the question of continuity and change over distances in time and geography. The course is organized as a general introduction followed by individual in-depth lectures on subjects related to the theme of the course. The course is focused on literary studies and the study of religion, but will include various other perspectives such as archeology, history and research in the field Old English. Lecturers will be a mixture of leading senior researchers and younger cutting edge scholars in the field. An excursion to a Viking Age site will be organized for participants of this course.

                        Visual Media Production - Making Short Fiction Films


                        Description

                        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, and for the final project (a 4-7 min. film), considerable attention will be given to developing a viable concept and then working up a storyboard/shooting script before production begins. 

                        Students will work in teams of approx. five participants per group and will gain experience with script development and such tasks as casting, location scouting, directing actors, camera work, lighting, sound recording, editing, etc. They will also meet such challenges as identifying and resolving storytelling problems as well as organizing and executing complex tasks while working as a team under the pressure of tight deadlines.

                        The conceptual framework for this course will be a non-formulaic narrative model based on the view that short film storytelling can best be described in terms of opposing properties that balance and complete one another in a dynamic interplay. An approach of this kind is not only tailor-made to the short film rather than designed for the mainstream feature film but also more open than the standard sequential models and also better suited to catching the most common beginner mistakes when short films are produced by student filmmakers.

                        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. There will be no exam per se.  Grades will be based on the productions and a report, 6-8 pages per participant. Each student will write one of the following sections of the report: a) script development; b) directing; c) camera work; d) editing; and e) the results of an audience test. This course can count as a HUMfag and all discussions will be conducted in English.

                        The first class meeting will be held on July 18 and the last one on August 12.

                        Between those dates, there will be work virtually every day. The reports will be due on August 19 but will be sent to me as electronic files and participants in the course will not have to remain in Aarhus after August 12.Required readings include a selection of articles and booklets by R. Raskin, provided as handouts:

                        Youth, Drugs and the Night-Time Economy

                        Description

                        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.
