Join one of the largest business academies in Denmark

Business Academy Aarhus develops and offers practice-orientated higher education programs. We are one of the largest business academies in Denmark with:

  • 4900 full-time students
  • 700 international students 
  • 400 employees

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 programs we offer focus on applied degrees. 

Like research universities, we provide both undergraduate programs 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 programs at Bachelor’s level for people who need to strengthen their qualifications on the job.

AP and Bachelor top-up programs

We offer a wide range of full-time higher education programs that qualify students for many different career choices. We offer 10 English taught programs within these fields:

  • Business
  • IT and Technology
  • Web, Media and Communication
  • Biotechnical and Food Technology

The AP degree programs last 2-2½ years. You will be awarded 120-150 ECTS points when you have finished a program. An AP degree enables you to start your working life right away or continue studying for a Bachelor’s degree.

The Bachelor’s top-up takes 1½ years and are for students who have already completed an AP degree program or similar. By completing an AP degree program and the top-up program, you will obtain a Bachelor’s degree. You will be awarded 90 ECTS points for a BA top-up program.

Our programs combine theory with practice.

We prioritize 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.

Truly international

Our 700 international students contribute to our international spirit and teaching format. We send 300 students abroad each year as part of their programs, and annually welcome exchange students from our more than 70 partner universities spread all over the world. 

Research and innovation 

Developing and completing our programs 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.

BAAA is not your traditional university but is much more hands-on and informal. I really like the teaching and practical group work and projects - I learn so much more by actually putting the theory we learn into real-life cases and examples. And it's really great the way I've been able to build close relationships with my fellow students and l...
