Business Academy Aarhus is a School of Applied Sciences

In European countries, this is an English-language term for institutions of higher education. The degree programmes we offer focus on applied degrees. 

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

In addition to this, we also offer further education and part-time programmes up to Bachelor’s level for people who need to strengthen their qualifications on the job.

AP and Bachelor top-up programmes

We currently offer two English-language programmes within the field of Digital Media that admit new students: 

We also have 4 other programmes running in English, but are not currently accepting new students

Our programmes combine theory with practice

We prioritise small classes, group work, project work, cooperation with trade and industry, realistic cases and compulsory internships. As we work so closely with the business community, we learn and benefit from one another.

An international focus

Our 100 international students contribute to our international spirit and teaching format. We send over 50 students abroad each year as part of their programmes, and annually welcome exchange students from our partner universities spread all over the world. 

Research and innovation 

Developing and completing our programmes must create value for students and companies alike. Therefore, we focus on using our competencies in specific research and innovation projects in collaboration with partner companies.

Business Academy Aarhus was founded on 1 January 2009 and was the first School of Applied Sciences to be awarded positive accreditation in Denmark.
