The international study programme in Global Management and Manufacturing (GMM) is for students who wish to work with global management, leadership, sourcing and production. The global perspective is an essential part of the study programme, which focuses on new forms of production.
The GMM study programme is a broad engineering programme combining the different disciplines of production, sourcing, economics and management. Global companies are in focus during the study period, including Danish global companies, such as Bang & Olufsen, Grundfos, LEGO, etc.
GMM students will obtain essential knowledge of cultural understanding both through theory but also through working and socialising with different nationalities studying the GMM programme.
The duration of the study programme is 3½ years and the programme focuses on four main subject areas:
- management competences,
- manufacturing competences,
- international competences and
- personal competences.
The course deals with topics concerning management, global sourcing and production, supply chain management, intercultural communication, design and product development, personal growth and project management.
What is truly unique about the study programme is the fact that you as a student will be associated with a company with which you will work closely from the 3rd to the 7th semester.
This means that you will solve tasks in relation to your studies and you will try out theories, models, concepts, etc. compared to real practical problems in the company you make a collaboration with. In this way, you will have plenty of opportunities to confront theory with praxis during your studies.
The study programme is divided into seven semesters each lasting 14-15 weeks. The central learning method is project organisation. Another learning method focuses on “real-life” company projects taught by professinal and competent lecturers and supervisors.
When you finish your studies, you will be ready to challenge the international market in terms of global sourcing and production and to find employment as production manager, quality engineer, environmental engineer, technical manager, logistics manager or project manager in companies which are either European or internationally oriented.
An additional two years of study may result in a Master“s degree. At AU Herning you can choose the MSc in Engineering (Technology Based Business Development).
By selecting the right courses during your studies, you can obtain a Graduate Business Diploma (basic) and a Bachelor“s degree in Global Management and Manufacturing simultaneously.
