Business Academy Aarhus was founded on 1 January 2009.


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).
