If you are interested in language and would like to supplement that interest with an international angle, then International Negotiation is the right choice for you. For here you will find a course that combines languages with economics and social sciences.
Given the fact that world trade and society in general are becoming increasingly internationalised, it is important for people to be fluent in foreign languages and to understand foreign cultures, customs and practices. Combining cultural and linguistic skills with knowledge about economics and politics gives you the degree in International Negotiation.
You yourself choose which language you want to specialise in – Arabic, English, French, Chinese, Spanish or German. In addition to becoming highly-proficient in your chosen language, you will be able to communicate with different cultures and you will learn about business economics, marketing and management. We call our graduates international all-rounders in economics, language and culture, in the sense that the degree later allows them to take up a wide range of job opportunities. The course is aimed at the international work of businesses, authorities and organisations.
The majority of the students taking the International Negotiation degree make use of the opportunity to spend time abroad as part of the course. So if you want to study abroad or carry out your internship abroad during your course, this is yet another reason to choose the International Negotiation degree.
Course options are listed below:
International Negotiation with Arabic
Over 230 million people speak Arabic, and Arabic-speaking countries stretch from the Atlantic in the west, to the Gulf in the east and Syria in the north. The area makes up a large and growing market for international commerce and aid. A BA in International Negotiation with Arabic takes 3½ years.
International Negotiation with English
English is a world language, reaching far beyond the borders of English-speaking nations. English is the official language of major organisations and commercial sectors. Globalisation and the Information Society further enhance English language’s importance as a world language. A BA in International Negotiation with English takes three years.
International Negotiation with Spanish
Spanish is a world language, spoken by 375 million people around the world – 40 million in Spain, 310 million in Latin America and 30 million in the USA. The economies of all of these Spanish-speaking countries are very different, but they all share rapid economic growth in common. A BA in International Negotiation with Spanish takes three years.
International Negotiation with German
Germany is Denmark’s biggest trading partner and the German language is also used extensively in Austria, Switzerland and in some Eastern European countries. Danish trade and industry has often drawn attention to the fact that it does not have enough employees who are proficient in German. A BA in International Negotiation with German takes three years.
International Negotiation with Chinese
In no time at all, that mass manufacturer of low-tech consumer goods has become a world power in industrial development, space travel and science. China's political role has grown enormously and with over one billion residents, the country is an important trading partner for the European business community. A BA in International Negotiation with Chinese takes four years.
International Tourism and Leisure Management
The course combines the area of language and culture with basic economics. The foreign languages are English and German. A BA in International Tourism and Hotel Management takes three years.
