Institution Aarhus University (AU)
Campus Herning
Duration 3 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 4250 EUR


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. Students also learn about organisation, product development, sales, project management, and innovation, and they will develop insight into the theories and methods used to understand companies’ internal and external relations.   

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

Career Opportunities  

Graduates of the programme have everything they need to handle business administration issues in both multinational and international companies – whether in trade and industry, in the service sector, in financial institutions, or in accountancy or consultancy. The degree also qualifies graduates for further studies at master’s level in Denmark or abroad.
