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, marketing, logistics, accounting, project management, and innovation. 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.
PROGRAMME STRUCTURE, SPECIALISATION AND STUDY ABROAD
All semesters except for the fifth include compulsory courses within Economics and Business Administration. In the compulsory courses you will learn about financial and managerial accounting, organisation, micro- and macroeconomics, marketing, finance, operations management, industrial organisation, and strategy. There are also a number of prerequisite courses in mathematics and statistics.
The programme offers considerable freedom of choice. As part of your specialisation in your fifth semester, you may choose from a wide range of elective subjects or alternatively study abroad at a business school or university outside Denmark.
SOCIAL AND ACADEMIC ACTIVITIES
Aarhus BSS hosts a rich and varied programme of activities for you as a student, both study-related and social. Our many student associations host events ranging from lectures and company events to career days and sports days, Friday bars, and celebrations, so there is plenty of scope for meeting and networking with like-minded people, discovering new areas of academic interest, and socialising with fellow students.
Graduates of the programme have everything they need to handle business administration issues in both multinational and international companies - whether in trade and industry, the service sector, financial institutions, or in accountancy or consultancy. The degree also qualifies graduates for further studies at master's level in Denmark or abroad
