|Degree:||Master of Science (MSc)|
Globalisation and internationalisation are affecting every nation, every level of industry, and virtually every business. One result is that demand is growing for economics and business graduates with an international background. The MSc in Finance and International Business will give you not only the professional qualifications for making strategic decisions in difficult and complex financial areas, but also experience and competency in performing in an international context.
During the first year, key areas of study include the internationalisation process of companies entering foreign markets and the challenges that companies face in an international environment. Additionally, strategic and financial decision-making, financial reporting and accounting issues, and the theories of corporate finance and supporting empirical evidence are covered in the first two semesters. The academic content is combined with an applied approach in which the skills and competencies vital for handling these complex issues are developed. In the third semester, you can choose elective courses at Aarhus University, AU Summer University or (as an exchange student) at one of three hundred partner universities abroad. You also have the possibility to combine electives with an internship to strengthen your practical skill set. Finally, the fourth semester is devoted to the master‘s thesis.
The MSc in Finance and International Business is dedicated to the highest-quality teaching in an informal and egalitarian learning environment. Students are always welcome to approach the teaching staff, and they are expected to participate actively in the classroom. Collaborating in small groups on projects gives students the chance to make the most of the international student environment.
Aarhus BSS hosts a rich and varied programme of activities for you as a student, both study-related and social.

The MSc in Finance and International Business gives graduates the knowledge and skills required to take part in the processes of finance and business activities that span multiple national contexts. After graduating, most of our students pursue careers as financial managers, international controllers, international business strategists, business entrepreneurs, managers of foreign subsidiaries, or experts on mergers and acquisitions.
