Business Academy Aarhus was founded on 1 January 2009 and was the first School of Applied Sciences to be awarded positive accreditation in Denmark. 


The programmes combine theory with practice. Business Academy Aarhus prioritise small classes, group work, project work, cooperation with trade and industry, realistic cases and compulsory internships. As we work so closely with the business community, we learn and benefit from one another.


Developing and completing our programmes must create value for students and companies alike. Therefore, we focus on using our competencies in specific research and innovation projects in collaboration with partner companies.

Student services

Most of the programmes at the Academy have their own Student Council. The Student Council allows you to have a say on your programme and organises social activities across classes. Each class elects two representatives to represent them in the Student Council. The Student Council works closely with the interdisciplinary Academy Council.

Housing services

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.

Library services

The library is above the canteen area at Sønderhøj 30. The library offers a wide range of books, journals and magazines, papers and online subscriptions.  In addition to this, the librarians teach data collection and information searches which will be needed for your projects.

Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Choosing the Business Academy Aarhus is one of the best decisions I've made in my life. Programme is 50:50 theory and practice, proffers are extremely friendly and professional. Classes are held in a classroom with small amount of people which allows better interaction between professor and students. Classrooms are full of international students form all around the Europe...

My Experience in BAAA

It was a great experience to study in Business Academy Aarhus. The education system was quiet different from what I had experienced from India before as here we focus more on practical stuffs than theory which is obviously a good way of learning.
