Economics and Business administration

Economics and Business Administration is a one- or two-semester programme at Aalborg University (AAU) for international guest students.

Economics and Business Administration constitutes a broad, interdisciplinary and problem-oriented study programme. The objective is to enable the student to identify and formulate problems related to business economics and subsequently to devise solutions, which may support the management of the work of private and public organizations in relation to their internal and external surroundings.

Aalborg University’s strong links with industry means that rigorous undergraduate academic study is combined with a practical focus. The projects that students will produce as an essential part of their studies are based on Problem Based Learning, also known as 'The Aalborg Model'. The basic idea is that students engage in complex everyday challenges occurring in firms. The students will therefore have to develop a multidisciplinary approach enabling them to solve the everyday challenges they work with.

The guest and exchange programme is part of the bachelor’s programme in Economics and Business Administration which is closed for admission of new students.
