Profile

Economics, area studies and language skills combined

European integration, globalization, migration: National and cultural boundaries are falling. Management activities in companies, administrations and organizations are becoming more dynamic, more complex and more demanding. In our bachelor's degree program International Management - Business Administration, we train highly qualified management trainees for national and international small and large companies.

A basic education in economics (marketing, strategic management, human resource management, micro- and macroeconomics, controlling, etc.) is complemented by lectures and seminars in the field of qualitative and social science methods, cultural area studies (Scandinavia or Latin America/Southern Europe, depending on the chosen focus) and foreign language skills (Danish or Spanish).

Living internationality: Already during your studies you will experience interculturality with exchange students from all over the world and in cooperation with Syddansk Universitet. The majority of students spend their 5th semester abroad at one of the numerous partner universities worldwide. [50318]

For the specially arranged bus shuttle that takes you from Flensburg city center to the Danish campus, we charge a fee of about 80 € per semester (subject to change). On the other days of the week, the courses take place on the campus of the European University in Flensburg.
