If you hold a programme from a university other than Aarhus University, you can have your programme evaluated at the School of Business and Social Sciences, Aarhus University in order to find out if you meet the admission requirements. This evaluation will prioritize the sufficient content of the following subjects and ECTS-points:
Quantitative and Qualitative Methods – 15 ECTS
Please note it is possible to apply for admission before you have completed your Bachelor’s degree programme, but a transcript of exam results from the BA/BSc programme up to the time of application must always be included in the application, even if the BA/BSc diploma and examination results have to be submitted after the deadline.
If you are lacking relevant documentation prior to the applications deadline, write down what sort of documentation, you are lacking, and when you will receive it. Official desriptions of not yet completed courses must be attached.
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English / Danish / Norwegian / Swedish.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
If the documents mentioned above are not in Danish, Norwegian, Swedish or English, they must be accompanied by translations into English. The translations of your diploma and grade transcript must be officially certified translations into English, either by your home institution or a certified translator. The course description may be translated by yourself, but certified by your university.
NB! Your language test results cannot be older than 2 years (incl. CAE, CPE).
When you sign up for an IELTS or TOEFL test, you must also ask the test institution to send your test results to AU. The university will use the results sent by the testing institution to validate your document. The Aarhus University TOEFL code is 8935 (select “Other department not listed”).
It is possible to apply for admission before you have taken your English language test and obtained the required result. Instead you must submit documentation that you have signed up for a test.
Please also provide the following:
1. Course descriptions in English briefly describing the contents of your specific BA courses or other information that will contribute to describing the contents of your Bachelor’s degree programme.
2. Official descriptions of relevant courses to be completed after the application deadline.
3. An official description of the marking scale used at your home university.

These and many other problems, their increasing complexity, their positioning at the border between economics and management and their placement in international contexts have been the backbone of the steadily growing demand for International Economic Consulting services. Large multinational corporations, regional and national policy makers, international organisations (like the World Bank, the EU and the OECD) and a growing number of non-profit interest groups require sound economic analyses and feasibility studies for an impressive range of issues and industrial sectors.
The MSc programme in International Economic Consulting – which has been developed in close cooperation with major players of the industry – is organised to prepare students for various job functions within this context. The programme will provide you with up-to-date theoretical knowledge required for applied economic analyses; relevant quantitative and empirical methods suitable for sectoral studies, policy impact analyses and forecasting; the training and concepts required for the implementation of national and international project consulting and, last but not least, introduce you to an exiting international environment.
