About

Working in business enterprises or organizations with an international orientation, one may seldom rely on solid knowledge of economics and business conditions only. Mastering foreign languages and being able to cope with the challenges of foreign cultures is equally important, for instance when negotiating agreements on financial or other matters.

The master of science in business, language and culture offers you the opportunity of extending your knowledge in the areas of business economics and business language. Faced with growing political, economic, cultural, and social globalization, businesses will make increasing demands on their employees, who will have to work across national and linguistic borders.

This Business, Language and Culture (Flensburg/Sonderborg) master degree from University of Southern Denmark will provide you with a high level of qualifications for analysing, evaluating, and performing the tasks involved in the international activities of business enterprises, tasks in which communication and mediation skills often play an important role. Thus the study programme combines foreign language competences with the study of social conditions as well as economic and sociological factors influencing decision-making processes in various cultures.

In Flensburg, you will find an intercultural study environment in which German is not just a subject, but an integral part of your everyday life.

Programme Structure

The compulsory subjects of the master of science in business, language, and culture belong to the following main fields:
  • Social science subjects
  • Humanities subjects
  • Optional subjects within social sciences (min. 20 ECTS) and humanities (max. 10 ECTS)

All the subjects have been integrated, which means that you will obtain solid theoretical knowledge in each main field, and that at the same time you will be able to recognize and understand their interrelations.

A master’s thesis concludes the programme. In the thesis you will have to describe, analyse, and solve a problem or complex of problems, applying the knowledge you have obtained during the study programme. Master’s theses are often written in co-operation with a private or public enterprise or other organization.
