INTERNATIONAL ROLE

Our role internationally is to educate candidates with intercultural competencies -
qualifying them for the future global labor market. This we ensure by having a
strong international environment at home (more than 400 international full-time
students) and every year a high number of incoming ERASMUS students from
international partner universities. Further on we encourage our students to study one semester abroad, either with our partners in Europe or in one of our overseas
exchange programs e.g. in China and/or Vietnam.

On an institutional level internationally we are members of e.g. EAIE, NAFSA,
Eurashe, The Danish-Chinese Business Forum and we have a strong cooperation
with CDEU (the Central Denmark EU Office) in Brussels.
