Whether you dream of building your career in the corporate world or becoming an entrepreneur, this program offers you experience in analyzing and understanding how European businesses operate. 



This program is right for you if you are a student in business, economics, finance, marketing, management, or related disciplines with a strong interest in acquiring business knowledge and skills from an international, cross-cultural, and globalized perspective.


>> Business Entrepreneurship Project
In an intensive hands-on process you will meet and collaborate with some main players on the European entrepreneurship scene, including start-ups, leading venture capitalists, business accelerator set-ups, and policy makers. Your interaction with the entrepreneurial community will be directly applied to your own business venture idea, which you will build and submit to an international competition.

>> European Business Strategy: Case Studies
Through business visits, case studies, and lectures, you will come to understand the European business environment and how it is different from the U.S. You will learn how companies may be impacted by local business environments – a key skill in international businesses. A major element of the course is working with a business on a sponsored project and presenting a solution to the company at the end of the semester.

Wonder what it is like to study International Business in Copenhagen?

In European Business Strategy, we focused on two industries my professor has extensive experience in - brewing and airlines. Through his connections, we completed a sponsor project with Carlsberg! We were challenged to analyze Carlsberg’s most pressing issues, and present our solutions and analysis directly to their Innovation Director at the end of the semester.

I can definitely picture my future solving complex marketing challenges for such a high-profile brand, so it was great that DIS allowed me to do that!

In Business Entrepreneur Project, we are constantly pushed to network with different and new people - it is one of the best class dynamics I have participated in.

The study tours give you the opportunity to interact with people involved directly in the start-up scene - people running their own start-ups, investing in start-ups, and hosting them.
