The Bachelor’s programme in Global Management and Manufacturing (GMM) takes a global perspective on innovation, management, business processes, and the development of new products and services. 

GMM is an international programme, so you will develop cultural understanding and international collaboration skills. Much of the teaching is project-based and takes place in collaboration with companies in Denmark or abroad. You will also be doing ancillary subjects such as mathematics and statistics.

Career Opportunities  

With a Bachelor’s degree in GMM you can work in fields such as innovation, management, operations, logistics, sustainability, and digital transformation. You will be able to work on the Danish and international job market, as factory manager, technical manager, head of logistics, project manager, or consultant. You can also go on to do a Master’s in Engineering, for example on the MSc programme in Technology-Based Business Development, also based in Herning.   

About the Degree

The GMM programme is based on unique and intensive company collaborations. From the second to the seventh semester, you will be affiliated with one or more companies of your choosing. This will provide you with the opportunity to do research and problem-solving in real, practical settings, building further on your practical knowledge and experience. The collaboration develops into a kind of mentorship programme between student and company. Companies participating in the mentorship agreement include not only large international businesses such as LEGO, Arla, Vestas, and Siemens, but also smaller local companies.

The duration of the GMM programme is three and a half years. The programme is structured so as to allow you to work with both theory and practice throughout your studies. The courses provide you with tools that will allow you to understand company financial conditions, how to work innovatively, how to develop a new product, and how to structure company production most efficiently. This means that you will have a strong theoretical foundation to offer your mentor company.

Students have many possibilities on campus. We provide accommodation for four hundred students, with facilities including a fitness room, a bar, free internet, and a laundry room. Campus Herning also has sports activities. The GMM programme has its own association offering social and academic events for all GMM students. As a GMM student you can become a member of IDA, the Danish engineering association, which also hosts events for members. There is also a study trip for the GMM students.
