The BSc in Flensburg and Sønderborg combines business economics and business language (English and Danish), and qualifies you for internationally-oriented jobs in private enterprises as well as in public organisations.

The programme is offered in cooperation with the University of Flensburg, and is based in both Flensburg and Sønderborg. This means that it has a significant international focus, both in terms of the subjects taught and in terms of the study environment.

The international focus is reflected in the double degree that you will obtain upon graduation: a German as well as a Danish bachelor degree.

Programme Structure

This Bachelor is a three-year programme, with the first two years spent studying introductory and compulsory modules across languages, economics, work psychology, accounting, law, statistics, marketing, theory of social sciences, and many more. These modules are intended to provide a solid foundation upon which to move into the third year, where you can study more specialised elective modules or study at a university abroad, and spend the final semester with a focus on writing your Bachelor project.

Career Opportunities  

This is the study programme for you if you want to combine study in business language with studies in business economics. Faced with growing political, economic, cultural, and social globalisation, business employees will have to be able to work across national and linguistic borders.

Graduates from this programme possess a range of competencies which qualify them for employment in internationally-oriented businesses, organisations, and institutions within both the private and public sector.

Graduates are able to conduct comparative analyses and evaluations of economic and linguistic business problems in connection with international activities; to conduct, participate, and solve internal and external communication tasks involved in the process.

In addition to insight into the discipline of business economics, graduates also have knowledge of cultural and socioeconomic relations and their effect upon linguistic and business economic issues. This includes knowledge of the relationship between psychology and communication and its influence on the transmission of messages to various target audiences. Graduates are proficient in oral and written English and Danish.
