Aarhus NEW

Aarhus BSS – a visionary business school with an international scope

Aarhus BSS is a broad business school and one of the four faculties at Aarhus University. With 16,700 students enrolled, the school ranks among the largest business schools in Europe and is the largest university-based business and social science institution in Denmark. 

The school employs more than 500 researchers who conduct research and teaching in disciplines ranging from business, economics, finance, corporate communication, marketing and management to psychology, political science, law and engineering. 

Our lecturers implement the latest research into their courses, and our researchers are engaged in numerous core and cross-disciplinary research projects aimed at solving the global economic and societal challenges facing our globalised society. Furthermore, Aarhus BSS is part of an internationally acclaimed university, which ranks among the top 100 universities in the world according to several international rankings and was home to two Nobel Prize winners, one of whom was affiliated with Aarhus BSS.

As a broad business school, we aim to represent and convey the complexity and heterogeneity of contemporary society, and we strive to remain at the vanguard of research and to solve the challenges facing the global world today.

Challenging the status quo
At Aarhus BSS, we challenge the status quo of business schools and have an innovative understanding of what constitutes a business education. If the global financial crisis has taught us anything, it is that the traditional profit-driven business mindset is not enough to succeed. Preparing for the future means recognising the growing interdependence of all areas of business – legal, political, financial and cultural – which combined contribute to generating successful business operations.  

As the largest educational institution in business and social sciences in Denmark, the school is the main producer and supplier of highly skilled graduates to the Danish business sector. At Aarhus BSS, we challenge the known and push boundaries to provide our students with skill-sets that are not only relevant for today’s labour markets but for lifelong careers.

We offer research-based degree programmes, from Bachelor’s and Master’s degree to PhD and continuing education programmes, all developed in close dialogue with our stakeholders in the business community and public sector.

We provide our students with knowledge of the practices, laws, cultures, and economics and political development of the global world in which they must navigate. And the broad scope of our research activities and degree programmes enables us to attract scholars and students from all over the world, creating an international environment where academic views are exchanged and experiences gathered.

Aarhus BSS is accredited by the esteemed international accreditation bodies AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS, the latter specifically applying to the school’s Department of Management, Department of Economics and Business Economics, and Department of Business Communication.
