About Economics and Management at Aarhus University

The two-year MSc programme in Economics and Management gives students an in-depth knowledge of a range of economics and business economics disciplines. The programme's flexibility also gives students the opportunity to specialise in a specific field or across a range of economics and management topics.

Researchers in the programme work in the fields of accounting, finance, macroeconomics, microeconomics, econometrics, and the economics of business, and the MSc programme allows students to create a personal academic profile within one or across several of these fields. Progress in the chosen courses is closely followed and monitored to ensure students' academic development. Each semester, the department also offers about thirty elective courses. The broad range of courses allows you to specialise in a particular field of interest and to compose an individual course programme.

IN THE COMPANY OF NOBEL LAUREATES

Students on the programme are based in the Department of Economics and Business Economics. The department is renowned for setting high academic standards. It engages in close collaboration with many leading international researchers, including Nobel Laureate Robert F. Engle and, until his death in 2014, Dale T. Mortensen. The department's outstanding research environment includes the Centre for Research in Econometric Analysis of Time Series (CREATES), where Robert F. Engle serves as member of the advisory board, and the Dale T. Mortensen Centre, among others.

INTERNATIONAL DIVERSITY

The academic environment at the department is characterised by international diversity: more than one-third of its academic staff and PhD students have an international background. The international atmosphere provides the basis for an enriched and exciting student life.

GRADUATES IN HIGH DEMAND

Economics and Management graduates are in very high demand on the labour market. Many graduates achieve top executive positions in the corporate world (e.g. in financial institutions and consulting firms) or management advisory positions in the public sector (e.g. in ministries and local authorities).

Moreover, the international character of the programme allows graduates to work with equal ease in both Danish and international organisations, consulting firms, ministries, government agencies, and financial institutions - including commercial banks, mortgage institutions, pension funds, insurance companies, and investment banks. Students who are interested in pursuing an academic career may also progress to the PhD programme. The department offers a special transitional arrangement for honours students who wish to continue their research training in the PhD programme.

AARHUS BSS

Aarhus BSS (School of Business and Social Sciences) is one of Aarhus University's four faculties. With approximately 13,000 full-time students, several thousand part-time students, more than two hundred PhD students and nearly six hundred faculty members, Aarhus BSS ranks among the largest business schools in Europe and is Denmark's biggest business and social sciences unit at university level. Building on its broad academic base, it encompasses both traditional business and social science disciplines. Aarhus BSS holds the distinguished AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS accreditations and is thus a triple-crown business school.

LEARNING IN AN INTERNATIONAL CONTEXT

At Aarhus BSS, we conduct research and teaching at the highest academic level. We are dedicated to imparting to our students exactly the knowledge, skills, and experience that are in demand - the skills that are essential for engaging in professional business activities in a global marketplace.

Our broad scope enables us to attract researchers, lecturers, and students from all over the world. With their help, we have built an international environment in which academic and cultural views are exchanged, experiences gathered, and friendships formed.

Our students are encouraged to take a semester abroad at one of Aarhus BSS's approximately three hundred partner universities around the world. Studying abroad is an excellent opportunity for you to expand your horizon academically, culturally and personally, and for you to acquire valuable international experience and qualifications that are in high demand in companies and organisations everywhere.

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."
