Business Academy Aarhus was founded on 1 January 2009. It was created as a merger between higher education programmes from the Aarhus Business College, Aarhus Tech and JU (the agricultural school). Some of our programmes today are offered in cooperation with the Aarhus School of Marine and Technical Engineering.
In several European countries, this is an English-language term for institutions of higher education. The degree programmes we offer focus on applied degrees, especially in technology, IT and business.
Like universities, we provide both undergraduate programmes and can grant academic degrees, but we do not award master's or doctoral degrees.In addition to this we also offer continuing education and part-time programmes at bachelor’s level and short-term courses for people who need to strengthen their qualifications on the job (only in Danish).
You might encounter the Academy’s research and innovation work through your educational programme as we often involve students in our work. Students are, for example, involved in our research and innovation interdisciplinary process known as ‘Experts in Teams’.
Many of our projects, large and small, have students involved. Our activities represent all the academic programmes the Academy offers, so there are good opportunities to benefit from joining our projects – no matter what you are studying.
The Career Centre at Business Academy Aarhus can act as a source of inspiration and help you implement what you what you would like to do for your internship and your career.
We offer both individual consultancy sessions and courses for groups of students. The goal is to provide you with the inspiration and tools you need to apply for an internship or your first postgraduate job.Get more information about:

Business Academy Aarhus is unfortunately not able to offer housing as we do not have any dormitories. However, you can apply for housing via Student Housing Aarhus, which administers residences for students across Aarhus.
You should apply long before you get to Aarhus - the demand is extremely high and the number of places is limited. The waiting times are also usually long, but most students are able to find housing through Student Housing Aarhus if they apply early enough. You can apply up to 6 months before study start.
The libraries at Business Academy Aarhus are open for all students and employees.
Business Academy Aarhus offers all students the opportunity to participate in different sports through the Business Academy Aarhus Sports Club. It doesn’t matter what programme you study, or where you're from. What matters is that you like sports and you think that doing them together with other students would be great fun.
