Whether you dream of building your career in the corporate world or becoming an entrepreneur, expand your experience in analyzing how innovative 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 key players on the European entrepreneur 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 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 differs from the U.S. You will learn how companies may be impacted by local business environments - a key skill in international business. 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?

My European Business Strategy: Case Studies class worked closely with Carlsberg this semester on a project that will help them adapt their brand and capture a wider customer base. This real-life situation allowed us to provide valuable advice to a leading company. And not only did it allow for an opportunity to network with professionals in an interesting field, but also provided the chance to learn about a company and an industry that I didn’t know much about.

The Business Entrepreneurship Project course was a great experience. Talking to actual entrepreneurs about their careers, the challenges they face trying to get a company off the ground, and what drives them to innovate has been fascinating.

Talking to serial entrepreneurs and professionals at accelerators helped me understand what they look for when investing resources in a team. On top of that, receiving feedback from them for our own business plan on study tour in Dublin and here in Copenhagen was incredibly helpful for us to progress and develop it further.
