This Double Degree top-up, possibly the first of its kind in Europe, offers students with 120 ECTS in a relevant subject area the opportunity to obtain two separate international bachelor awards within one and a half years (two academic semesters plus 3 month internship):

Professional Bachelor in International Sales and Marketing (Denmark)
BA (Honours) in Management and Marketing (UK)

The programme is designed so that the Danish Professional Bachelor is delivered by face to face teaching, while the UK BA Honours is completed through e-learning modules using learning sets. This enables students to undertake any international activities such as study exchange, study visits and internship abroad while still being able to complete successfully the additional award.

Additional work for the double degree is carried out largely by independent study and in the students’ own time. Students taking the double degree finish at the same time as students taking just the single degree.

Students taking the double degree option will be registered at both the IBA Kolding, Denmark and London South Bank University, UK and are eligible to attend the Graduation Ceremony at both institutions.

Students experience an array of study modes: face-to-face classes, action learning sets, distance e-learning and blended learning.

The double qualification will add value to a student’s academic profile, but just as important will make a statement about that student’s motivation and commitment to study that enhance their personal profile – such as the willingness to go beyond the minimum level, showing a deep and
genuine interest in acquiring further knowledge and skills, and so on.

Although the programme is delivered in Kolding by the IBA, students are taught by tutors from IBA and LSBU and receive support from both institutions.

On successful completion of the double degree, students are eligible for automatic progression to Masters programmes.

The two components of the Double Degree are completely complementary and provide a broad European experience of business education.
