The two-year International Business Economics programme is divided into four semesters of five months each.
The first two semesters are devoted to studies at Aalborg University.
During the third semester, students can spend 3-5 months abroad, either as trainees in foreign companies or institutions or as exchange students at a foreign university. International students may also spend their traineeships in a company or an organisation in Denmark. In some cases, students can also choose to do a semester at another university in Denmark or within another programme at Aalborg University. Guest/exchange students cannot enrol as trainees during the third semester.
Fourth semester is devoted to the writing of the Master's thesis.
