The Bachelor’s degree programme in Global Management and Manufacturing (GMM) takes a global perspective on innovation, management, business processes and the development of new products and services. During the programme, you will be focusing on four main areas: innovation, operations (production and service processes), management and international business optimisation. 

Career Opportunities  

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

About the Degree

The GMM programme is based on intensive and unique company collaborations. From the 2nd to the 7th semester, students are affiliated with a company - which might not necessarily be the same one throughout their studies.

The collaboration develops into a kind of mentorship programme between the student and the company. The students are responsible for finding their own mentor companies in Denmark or abroad.

Degree programme structure

The degree programme is structured in a way that allows you to work with both theory and practice throughout your studies. Until the 5th semester, each semester is divided in two. For the first eight weeks, students will receive theoretical teaching on campus. This is followed by eight weeks of problem-based work in the mentor companies. 

The courses on GMM provide you with tools that allow you to understand the company’s financial conditions, develop new products, and structure the company’s production. You will spend 6th semester doing an internship, and on the 7th semester, you can write your Bachelor's project at the company.

Student life

Most of the teaching on the GMM programme takes the form of classroom instruction. However in some subjects, lectures for larger groups of students may be arranged. In the lectures, the lecturers will be doing most of the talking, while you will be expected to play a more active role in class. 

Living in Herning

Herning is known for hosting major concerts and sporting events. The city is full of students and offers everything that young people need. The city offers more than 20 bars, cafés and places to go out - as well as a number of cultural events throughout the year.
