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.


The programme offered in Herning will to a significant extent be connected to local and national business, so that students learn how business theory makes contact with real world business cases. At the same time the programme emphasises empirically oriented group work and projects. Through project-based teamwork, students will learn how to act as business professionals in teams.

The programme taught in Herning thus combines courses focused on cases and teams, with classic business courses identical to the programme in Aarhus. These classic courses teach 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.
