Code of Conduct

Sample Agency Agreement

 “My entire journey right from the moment of my decision to pursue a Masters degree and being part of Niels Brock and DeMontfort University came a full circle this year with an extraordinary achievement on my dissertation. 

The fact that there was an absolute level of involvement and consistent appreciation by the faculty and Program Manager during this program shows how they strive to keep the learning environment alive and exciting to be part of.

Most importantly, academically, this experience helped me to add more of an analytical approach towards problem solving and decision making.

With constant support and guidance, studying at Niels Brock and engaging with the faculty and administration was an experience worth of the time, money and efforts invested for this program.”

Anuradha Venkataraman, MSc IBM 2018 Graduate

 “I am extremely glad to be a part of Niels Brock - DMU. The university is an amazing center of learning, exploring, lecturers and the students who have created a wonderful learning environment. I completed the Niels Brock – DMU Masters in International Business and Management Program. I felt that I obtained enough assistance from the lecturers. My teachers, highly qualified are approachable and very helpful.

 I am having a great experience while studying at Niels Brock-DMU since it has a true multicultural society where people from different nationalities are very well integrated. 

 I have known that the teaching style was modern, demanded students to be independent, and assisted me a lot as it links with my current job. After studying, I have defended my Ph.D and became Associate professor and teaching at the Graduate University of Mongolia. This is an excellent opportunity and very helpful to my career development.”

Erdenechimeg Ya, (Ph.D), Associate  Professor, MSc IBM 2015 Graduate


“I really enjoyed my time at De Montfort University-Niels Brock. It was a very challenging experience working with international students but in the end, I got good friends from other countries. Despite not seeing each other as often still we keep the friendship and manage to catch up when we can.

I took MSc International Business and Management for 1.5 years. The research methodology session had opened doors for me in the research environment. Six months after my graduation, I started working as a research assistant. And, the strong knowledge of research and analysis acquired from DMU helped me to perform my research job well.

" Niels Brock DMU is a great place to study MSc International Business and management-  excellent lecturers, full administrative support and multicultural environment. I would definitely recommend applying to DMU!

Joy Billanes, a former research assistant at the Center for Energy Informatics, University of Southern Denmark, Ph.D. aspirant, MSc IBM Graduate 2015


"This programme has supported my career and aspirations in more than one way. I entered Niels Brock (DMU) with a single objective to get a Master's degree and begin my career in the field of business management but ended up aiming for a much bigger horizon. The institution has an outstanding staff and a much appreciated open-door policy that allows students to build a connection with the module teachers that goes way beyond academic prerogative. I am honored to be a part of Niels Brock (DMU) community and I recommend this institution to all those prospective students who aspire to grow beyond their academic capacity."

 “The Master’s programme in International Business and Management has greatly contributed to my global mindset and my organizational understanding. The programme itself really lives up to the standard of conveying knowledge of how international corporations function, what challenges you are facing when trying to work internationally and what specific cultural differences you are going to face. It is enabled by multinational lecturers (e.g. the USA, Pakistan, Egypt, Chile, Denmark) covering all relevant management fields, combined with a student audience from all over the world. This valuable experience has extremely shaped my desire of working internationally. Moreover, a British Master’s degree from a Business College in Copenhagen represents the perfect academic requirement if you want to do so. Thus, I can highly recommend the programme if you are striving of working internationally.”
