The AP degree in Marketing Management is a two year study programme consisting of four semesters.
The first three semesters are based on variated and practice oriented teaching, such as project work, case work and presentations which will be based in Danish and foreign companies. With a practice oriented view, you will get an insight in how the programme is relevant in the job market. The last semester will also include the final exam project.
The 4th semester is an internship semester, where you have the chance to use the qualifications that you have gained though the programme. At this semester you will have to write a final exam project which typically is based on a specific assignment for a company. You can write the final exam project alone or together with one or two fellow students.
During the programme you have the opportunity to go abroad in the 3rd and/or 4th semester.
On each semester you will have one or several subjects which will connect the courses together.
At Cphbusiness, all of the study programmes are scheduled as a full-time course of study. However, we try to create an environment where you can study full-time and also work at a part-time job. We do this in order to help you strengthen your business skills. As a result of this, you typically have two half days or one whole day off every week, which you can use on your part-time job, together with your study group or on your own preparation. However, you should expect to place your part-time job in the evenings and weekends.
At Cphbusiness, we see it as our most important task to contribute to your development so that you can help create the future business life.
Thus, Cphbusiness’ study activities aim to develop your academic and personal skills, in order to let you navigate in an organisation and create value at a work place or start and run your own company.
We believe that you learn best by working with specific tasks in practice. Therefore, our student activities are less focused on traditional teaching and to a greater extent built around activities where you play an active role yourself. You will have co-responsibility for and influence on your own learning, and feedback will be an important part of the study activities.
Besides traditional teaching, the study activities will include project work, cases and assignment work, where you through cooperation and dialogue solve specific tasks along with your fellow students and with your lecturers as counsellors. Furthermore, you will be challenged in digital study activities.
The Marketing Management programme consists of four semesters divided into flows, where you will work hands on with projects, cases and presentations. You also come across classical disciplines such as sales, economics, organization and marketing theory. During your fourth semester you will join a company for a three-month internship either in Denmark or abroad.
Education with a world of opportunities
At Cphbusiness, we offer you the opportunity to build and unfold your global, intercultural and linguistic skills through study activities, where you cooperate with students from all over the world. As a natural part of the study programme, the teaching activities including books and cases etc. will be in English.
In every study programme, an obligatory internship is included where you can test your own skills in a company abroad or in an international company in Denmark. In doing so, you will prepare yourself for the global job market that waits for you when you graduate.
– The teachers of the Marketing Management programme are great motivators and manage to make my education interesting, fun and exciting. I would definitely recommend the Marketing Management programme to anyone with an interest in marketing!
Valentin Kamenov, international student at the AP programme in Marketing Management.
– We have a great international study environment, and I now have ‘colleagues’ from several countries. We spend a lot of time working on projects and cases which are often specific problems that we solve for companies. This makes it fun to study.
What we expect of you as a student
Active participation in the study activities at Cphbusiness will, to a great extent, help you feel better equipped for your future job. Therefore, we expect that you:
- participate in study activities with lecturers, in study groups and on an individual level;
- participate in a mix of study activities (for example project work, workshops, digital learning activities and traditional teaching);
- want to learn in groups along with your fellow students with a diverse background;
- work full time with your studies – this means around 40 hours weekly besides a potential part-time job; and
- want to be challenged in your international and linguistic skills.
The purpose of the internship is to give the student the opportunity of testing in practice his/her learning skills from the first semesters by working in a company in a relevant profession on a job-like basis.
The companies are expected to contribute with best practice experience. During the internship, the student has a supervisor from the programme as well as a contact person in the company.
The student and the guidance teacher together set goals for the student’s learning during the internship period, which will subsequently be normative for organizing the student’s job function.
The internship period is concluded with an exam in which the guidance teacher evaluates the student’s learning from the internship against the initial goals.
You may compare the internship to a full time job with the same demands to working hours, effort, commitment, and flexibility, which the student is likely to meet in his/her first job.
