The contents of the course:
The programme is taught in English and includes subjects related to business economics and economics. Compare to the bachelor programmes taught elsewhere the range of topics is oriented towards the international aspects of companies and towards regional development. The programme still covers all the basic subjects of Business Administration, i.e. courses developed at university level in Management and Organisation, Corporate Finance, Marketing, Accounting, Business Law, Programming and Data Processing, Statistics as well as Micro- and Macroeconomics. In addition, the programme at Campus Sønderborg offers specialized courses addressing a range of international, European and regional topics. Thus, the benefits of studying at a large institution such as the University of Southern Denmark are combined with the advantages of enrolling in the more dedicated bachelor programme in Economics and Business administration offered since 2001 at the comparatively small campus in Sønderborg.
Bachelor and Master in an international atmosphere
A maximum of 50 students are admitted to the BSc in Economics and Business Administration – International Economics and Business Relationships programme in Sønderborg, and the programme is also offered to foreign students, who wish to take a complete B.Sc. in Sønderborg. Some courses are also offered in our international programme enrolling both students from our many international partners and individual foreign students. Accordingly, the programme provides students with an exciting, international study environment with an extensive contact to students from many parts of the world.
BSc in Economics and Business Administration – International Economics and Business Relationships is part of the Master of Science in Economics and Business Administration programme which consists of a three-year bachelor programme (B.Sc.) and a two-year graduate programme (M.Sc.). Having passed the Bachelor of Science programme you can choose to enrol for another two years on a Master’s programme at SDU. Having passed the master’s programme you can call yourself M.Sc. in Economics and Business Administration.
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.
Teaching is lectures, class instructions and individual supervision.
The bachelor’s project
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 organization – 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.
Study sojourns abroad
The University of Southern Denmark in Sønderborg is known to place particular emphasis on the international profile of the offered courses. This also goes for the Bachelor of Science in Economics and Business Administration. There are many opportunities, through a comprehensive network of collaborators in English-speaking countries or universities offering special English-language programmes, to make a sojourn abroad an integral part of your study programme.
