About Economics and Business Administration (Herning) at Aarhus University

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.

CAREERS

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

What students think about Aarhus University

    Sagar from India studying Mechanical Engineering

    Testimonial from Sagar from India studying Mechanical Engineering, student at Aarhus University

    "It's very easy to work in English in Denmark. Everyone understands it and can talk in English. I also think that the culture is very interesting. Quite unique in fact. There’s a lot of focus on the potential of the individual, and there’s a lot of openness. Denmark has a very flat hierarchy, and that’s rare. I've never experienced this flat hierarchy before, so actually it was something of a culture shock. And it permeates everything – even on the programme. It's very positive, it's not like the lecturer just arrives, teaches, and goes. There’s interaction, and you’re encouraged to discuss and have an opinion. The professors are genuinely interested in hearing your own opinion about things; even the simplest questions are given respect and are discussed until every aspect is clear to us.”

    Anita from Croatia studying Civil and Architectural Engineering

    Testimonial from Anita from Croatia studying Civil and Architectural Engineering, student at Aarhus University

    "It was weird to live here at first. You had to get used to so many new things. But there were a lot of social events, especially during the first week, and everything was organised for us. I met a lot of Danish and international students, and even some from my own country. It was great, and it helped in the beginning, when you feel that you’re completely alone with so many things. I like Aarhus. It's a big city, but it’s also a small town. It’s exactly the right size, I think, to feel at home and comfortable and yet to have all the opportunities you need and want. And I really like the fact that the university is right in the middle of the city."

    Angelo from Italy studying Computer Science

    Testimonial from Angelo from Italy studying Computer Science, student at Aarhus University

    "What really makes Aarhus University unique is the study environment. The lecturers are very open to discuss their subjects during lectures, but they are also available at other times - sometimes you can discuss with them during the local Friday Bar. Most of the programmes facilitate and foster teamwork, which is so much more fun and closer to the actual working environments. Last, but not least important, you have 24/7 access to facilities, including libraries, study rooms, etc., if you want to go the extra mile."
