English

Morten Jensen is a Danish Master’s degree student enrolled in the 2012-2014 MSc in International Marketing programme. He wrote the following testimonial during the first year of his studies.

I chose the MSc programme in International Marketing at Aalborg University because this degree opens doors to a range of career possibilities in marketing, sales, export, business development, etc. Doing business with firms in foreign countries has always been one of my key interests, and the programme has given me some tools to solve international business problems. The international perspective in the study is exciting as it gives me an opportunity to work for an international company, which is one of my primary goals. Despite the fact that I was worried about everything being taught in English, it was really not a problem and my English rapidly improved in a few weeks.

I find it very positive that the people who are attending the programme are from all over the world. This gives me a good opportunity to work with people from different cultures, which I find very interesting. I am sure that I will use this international network in my future career.

In the third semester of this programme, you have the option to go abroad and try the real business life. I am going to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia for four months to work for an international company. I think this traineeship will be a great experience, because I can use all the theories I have learned during the two taught semesters in order to solve practical problems in the real business world.

I det følgende skriver første års kandidatstuderende Morten Jensen om sine erfaringer og sit syn på det at studere International Marketing. Indskrivelsesår: 2012-2014.

Jeg valgte Cand. Merc. i International Marketing på Aalborg Universitet, fordi det er en uddannelse, som åbner en bred vifte af karrieremuligheder indenfor marketing, salg, eksport, forretningsudvikling osv. At lave forretning med udenlandske lande har altid været en af mine største interesser, og dette program giver mig nogle redskaber, som hjælper mig med at løse internationale business-problemer. Det internationale perspektiv på uddannelsen er godt, fordi det giver mig muligheden for at arbejde for en international virksomhed i fremtiden, hvilket er et af mine primære mål. Selvom jeg var bekymret for, at alt var på engelsk, har det ikke været noget problem, og mit engelsk blev forbedret på få uger.

Jeg finder det meget positivt, at personerne, som følger programmet, er fra hele verden. Det giver mig en god mulighed for at arbejde med personer med forskellige kulturelle baggrunde, hvilket jeg finder meget interessant, og jeg er sikker på, at jeg vil benytte dette internationale netværk i min fremtidige karriere.

På det tredje semester i dette program har du muligheden for at tage til udlandet og prøve kræfter med det rigtige forretningsliv. Jeg tager selv til Kuala Lumpur i Malaysia i fire måneder for at arbejde for en international virksomhed. Jeg tror, at dette praktikophold giver mig en god erfaring, fordi jeg kan benytte teorien, jeg har lært på de to første semestre, til at løse praktiske problemstillinger i den virkelige forretningsverden.
