View Larger Map

The Jutland Business School, founded in 1939, split in two separate units in 1956, forming what would later become The Aarhus School of Business (ASB) as it exists today in its current location, Fuglesangs Allé. The ASB has since become the second largest university in Denmark and one of Europe's leading business schools, with over 7,000 students in attendance. An EQUIS accreditation places ASB among the best business schools worldwide and on a par with the London Business School, INSEAD in France, and the University of Washington, USA. In addition to high quality research programs, modern surroundings, and the use of cutting edge technology, students benefit from a strong international orientation. International partnerships and exchange agreements with over 150 business schools and universities worldwide insure a diverse student body and prepare students to consider business activities in a global perspective.

Please note: students are not accepted into the program until they submit their application and deposit to the UF International Center. You can start your online application today!

The City

With a population in excess of 250,000 inhabitants, Aarhus is the second largest city in Denmark. It was founded by the King of Denmark around the year 900; a time when Vikings ruled the country. Today, Aarhus is known as the capital of the provinces, recognized for its thriving business and commercial sector as well as the many schools and educational institutions located in the area. The downtown area hosts a mixture of cobbled streets, green parks, old monuments and modern buildings in addition to the Aarhus River, which runs through the city's center. The river provides a picturesque landscape for patrons of the many intimate cafes that populate the area. In contrast to the pulsating life of Aarhus, the city is surrounded by tranquil nature sanctuaries. Sandy beaches and large forest areas to the north and south of the city provide residents a quiet place to relax.

Student Life

As an international student, the university will warmly welcome you and provide many opportunities to meet and socialize with other Danish and international students. The ASB campus is situated just north of the city center, placing it within walking distance to many of the area's restaurants, cafes, parks, gardens, theatres, art galleries, shopping centers, and night clubs. In addition to the numerous city entertainment outlets and cultural events, there are also many academic and recreational activities on campus that are available to exchange students.

Students who choose to study at the Aarhus School of Business are automatically signed up for the University Housing program once they complete the online application by published deadlines. ASB, however, will be unable to provide accommodations after that time. Students will receive a Housing Email with details about rent, payment etc. More than 90 percent of the rooms available to exchange students will be in the residence halls. Residence halls are situated all over Aarhus (Danish universities do not have on-campus accommodation). The rooms are furnished with a bed, a desk with a chair, a lamp, and possibly a closet or some shelves. Most rooms have a private bathroom, but some students share a bathroom with 1-4 other students. Most rooms share a kitchen and living room with 10-15 other students. In the kitchen you will find a refrigerator, a freezer, and an oven. You will find most of what you need in your room, but you may have to buy or bring a few items, such as a pillow, bedding, bath towels, and possibly some kitchenware. All residence halls have laundry facilities and most have internet access.


The currency is the Danish Krone (DKK).
