Gain an international perspective on business. Expand your ability to analyze international business from a European perspective, gaining hands-on experience from business cases and professionals. Unlike the U.S. with a large market, Denmark is a country with a small open economy and it is an integral part of the European market. How do Danish businesses set themselves apart and compete internationally?
Through business visits, case studies, and lectures, you will come to understand the European business environment and how it differs from the U.S. Learn how companies are impacted by local business environments, cultural differences, and trade regulations – a key insight into international business.
Core Course Study Tours
This program travels on Study Tours to the following destinations:
Week-Long Study Tour: Helsinki-Riga or London or Berlin-Prague
Core Course Week: Denmark
Early in the semester, you delve into your academic focus during Core Course Week, in which you travel on a short Study Tour for three days in Denmark or a neighboring country, combined with a two-day seminar in Copenhagen. Later in the semester, you travel again with your Core Course on a week-long Study Tour in Europe.
While on tour, theories learned in the classroom come to life by meeting with professionals and experts in your field who contribute to furthering your understanding of course topics. Study Tours are hands-on and experiential, combining theory with practice, and expose you to additional cultural perspectives. You have the opportunity to visit sites and experts in your field of interest that you may not otherwise have access to.
Add elective courses to complement your Core Course at DIS Copenhagen. You decide how to build your course load based on your needs and interests!
Electives range across disciplines and include research, workshops, studios, and even Exploration Electives, which come with a travel component.
