Develop your ability to analyze international competition and business strategy through a European and Danish perspective, gaining applied knowledge through active engagement with business professionals, relevant case studies, and experiential learning. Although Denmark itself is a relatively small market, most major European and global businesses operate in Denmark, and Danish businesses are renowned for world-class innovation and the significant role they play in global markets. How do Danish and other European businesses distinguish themselves and compete internationally?
European Business Strategy: Case Studies
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits
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:
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.
