Welcome to Business Academy Aarhus, University of Applied Sciences

– one of the largest business academies in Denmark

Business Academy Aarhus develops and offers practice-orientated higher education programmes. With more than 4,700 full-time students, 3,800 part-time students and about 400 employees we are one of the largest business academies in Denmark. 

Business Academy Aarhus is a University of Applied Sciences.

In several European countries, this is an English-language term for institutions of higher education. The degree programmes we offer focus on applied degrees, especially in technology, IT and business. 

Like universities, we provide both undergraduate programmes and can grant academic degrees, but we do not award master's or doctoral degrees.

In addition to this we also offer continuing education and part-time programmes at bachelor’s level and short-term courses for people who need to strengthen their qualifications on the job (only in Danish).

Our programmes combine theory with practice.

We prioritise tuition in small teams, group work, project work, cooperation with trade and industry, realistic cases and compulsory internships. We have about 900 international students, and every year more than 300 of our students go abroad for part of their programmes.

Developing and completing programmes must create value for students and companies alike. With this in mind we make a dedicated effort to apply our qualifications in relation to specific innovation and development projects in a joint effort with partnership companies. 

Several years of experience with higher education   

Business Academy Aarhus was founded on 1 January 2009. It was created as a merger between higher education programmes from the Aarhus Business College, Aarhus Tech and JU (the agricultural school).  Some of our programmes today are offered in cooperation with the Aarhus School of Marine and Technical Engineering.
