4-year American BSc in Business Administration

The Niels Brock American BSc in Business Administration is career-oriented and based on strong ties to trade and industry and to the international market place.

In many ways this program may be compared to the professional bachelor’s degrees offered in Denmark and abroad, however with a broad general education and business economics base and contrary to the normal Danish professional bachelor’s degrees there are no obligatory periods of work placement/internships in the program.

However, it is recommended to perform the final-semester course called “Independent Study” in cooperation with an enterprise. Likewise, all business-related courses have practice-oriented elements.

We thus combine business education with a broad-based liberal arts foundation to provide students with the skills and expertise necessary to advance in today's dynamic business environment. The program emphasizes global perspectives, fosters a sense of social responsibility, and develops leadership skills – all while offering the student flexibility to pursue their individual interests.

Options during the final 2 years

The 4-year American BSc in Business Administration is a broad career-oriented international business economics program based on strong ties to the international market place – with the option of choosing a concentration in the final 2 years in either finance or marketing.

Finance Concentration

The purpose of the Finance Concentration is to educate graduates who can understand practice and are able to apply theories and methodologies within international business and finance and who can perform advisory and administrative functions including customer-oriented tasks in the specific financial market place as well as in the finance departments of enterprises.

Marketing Concentration

Advisory Board

In connection with the development and sustainability of the American Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Niels Brock has established an Advisory Board. The idea behind such a Board is to give stakeholders a voice in the continued development of the BSc.

In order to ensure a relevant educational program that meets the demands for a BSc, Niels Brock wishes to be challenged, assessed and inspired by relevant experts and stakeholders during the design and development of the BSc as well as during the delivery of the program.

Another important reason for setting up an Advisory Board is to ensure an ongoing dialogue with representatives of employers, as well as with academia.

Niels Brock considers the below to be the main tasks for the Advisory Board:

  • To contribute with future visions as to labor market developments and point to changes in competence requirements for current and future graduates
  • To contribute with recommendations for the overall contents of the program within the given framework
    The advisory board will typically meet once per semester.
