Internship

In the 3rd semester you will join a company for an internship in the specialisation of your choice. The internship will give you an excellent opportunity to form a business related network while at the same time test your theoretic qualifications in a real-life setting. The internship can take place in a company in Denmark or abroad. 

Main project

You will round off the 4th semester by preparing a main project – typically based on your internship. 

Tuition

The subjects are taught as a combination of lessons in class, group work and project work. This presents an excellent opportunity for dialogue with your peer students and lecturers. We take a project-focused approach in our tuition and you will get to apply what you have learnt as the programme progresses.
