More about the programme Business Management
The programme is taught in English and includes subjects related to business economics and economics. Compared to bachelor programmes taught elsewhere the range of topics is oriented towards information systems, operations, and supply chain management. The programme still covers all the basic subjects of Business Administration.

The Bachelor of Science in Economics and Business Administration is part of the Master of Science in Economics and Business Administration programme which consists of a three-year bachelor programme (BSc) and a two-year graduate programme (MSc). Having passed the Bachelor of Science programme you can choose to enrol for another two years on a Master’s programme in Odense or elsewhere.
Your BSc in Business Management gives you directly access to e.g. MSc in Economics and Business Administration (e.g. Global Supply Chain Management, International Business & Management) and MSc in Business Economics and Auditing. Provided that you take the right electives, you also have access to MSc in Economics (e.g. Finance and Economics, Accounting and Economics) at SDU.
The Bachelor of Science programme consists of 6 semesters – with approx. 15 lessons per week. As a student you are the person being in charge of acquiring skills and knowledge. Teaching is offered, but attending lectures is not the primary activity for a student enrolled at the university. Skills and knowledge are not only developed in connection with teaching, but in a more important way through studies, field work/research, preparation of assignments, and especially through the interaction with fellow students.
The methods of instruction will be lectures, class exercises and teamwork with supervision.
The teaching starts in the autumn semester on September 1 and ends just before Christmas. Spring semester starts on 1 February and ends around 1 June. There is an exam in January and June.
The subjects at are typically examined at the end of the semester, which means that you will be admitted to the exam in January and June.
There are many different types of examinations: written and oral exam, take-home exam, weekly assignments and seminars and projects. A seminar is a teaching and examination form, in which all students in the seminar circle must write a task. The assignments are then discussed in the seminars and the students are shifted to defending their own task, opposing the task of others and being a "general" discussion participant
A bachelor programme ends with a bachelor’s project during the sixth term. This offers you the opportunity – usually in collaboration with a business or an organisation – to put into practice the knowledge you have acquired. The project therefore makes it possible for you to specialize in one or the subjects or one of the areas you have become particularly interested in during your studies.
