The industry specialisation part

The industry specialisation part consists of two subject periods, where you specialise in accounting. It is organised so that the subject (accounting) is placed in the 4th semester and will serve as preparation for your internship period during the 5th semester. The subjects placed in the 6th semester are intended to serve as follow-up and will provide competency development after your internship period.

Internship in your 5th semester

In your internship, you will get to test your newly acquired skills in a company and get insight into future work assignments and career opportunities. You will be able to connect your theoretical knowledge with practical experience and at the same time strengthen your CV.

In the internship, you can test a specific field of work and then focus your programme in relation to your career plans. As part of your internship, you must write a project report which is based on a problem statement from the company.

The internship is a mandatory part of your programme, and it is your responsibility to find an internship company. To help, we have a wide range of tools and contacts available, e.g. via our career centre.

Your internship can be taken in a company in Denmark or abroad.

Here are some examples of internship companies:
