BA (Hons) Business Administration, Dania Vandborg - Sweden, Marketing Stream, 2020-21

"First of all, Niels Brock should not only pride itself from the internationalisation perspective, solely on the diversity of its students from all over the world, it should also be mentioned that the staff are international as well! This has contributed to a more well-rounded experience, making the degree that I received more advanced than at other institutions. The lecturers did not only use the curriculum to teach from the books, they shared experiences from their previous jobs, from trends across news outlets, socials as well as new publications related to the courses. Second of all, the flexibility the institution had regarding my application, and the attention dedicated to ensuring I get the same opportunity as people who applied ahead of me. Niels Brock is an institution that encourages you to apply yourself, that gives you all the tools you need to expand your point of views and ways of thinking. All in all, I can proudly say, that the education I have received with the help of the incredible lecturers, staff and fellow students, has helped me secure jobs on both a national and international level.

Muhammad Farhad, Strategy Stream, 2021-22 – Bangladesh

After working and being away from study for a couple of years, I had to think cautiously about the program and institution of my choice. Fortunately, I found the BA (Hons) Business Administration (Top-up programme) in Niels Brock Copenhagen Business College, and I am delighted for making that decision. The BA (Hons) includes well rounded curriculum that both challenged and grew my knowledge in all aspects of the business field. My major stream Strategy Management provided an optimal mix of pragmatic methodologies. I enjoyed every bit of being part of this program. Niels Brock has a very wonderful faculty and all the tutors are very much caring and supportive. The year I spent here was amazing and has helped me a lot to grow both professionally and personally. The most exciting experience I found is that I was enjoying the high standard Danish lifestyle, while earning a UK degree. The institution has a very strong network of literature resources and a modern library. I owe Niels Brock so much and I am confident that those students who take their courses seriously, will be rewarded for the rest of their lives. I would like to personally thank each member of the Niels Brock staff who helped me along the way in completing my degree. You are proficient, prompt and your service is outstanding
