How can CO2 quotas be priced and distributed efficiently? Which pipelines need to be built in order to secure the EU’s future gas supply? Do Bangladeshi farmers benefit more from direct financial support or price guarantees? What are the costs and benefits of spreading public sector activities, e.g. decentralise university educations to a higher degree? How many cars will need a parking space in Copenhagen in the future – and how many public and private electric vehicle-charging stations are needed to accommodate the shift to hybrid and electric cars? Should a company diversify its international providers of inputs and intermediate goods to include more countries than currently?

These and many other challenges situated at the intersection of economics and management form the basis of the MSc in International Economic Consulting. The increasing complexity of international relations has led to a steadily growing demand for international economic consulting services in which consultants have skills to handle the analysis of complex data, to combine the analysis with knowledge about economic business principles, and to report the results in clear writing and oral presentations. Large multinational corporations, regional and national policy-makers, international organisations like the World Bank, the EU, and the OECD, as well as a growing number of non-profit interest groups require sound economic analyses and feasibility studies for a wide range of issues.


The Economics and Business Administration - International Economic Consulting programme from Aarhus University  is dedicated to the highest-quality teaching in an informal and egalitarian learning environment. Students are always welcome to approach the teaching staff, and they are expected to participate actively in the classroom. Collaborating in small groups on projects gives students the chance to make the most of the international student environment.


The MSc in International Economic Consulting was developed in close cooperation with major players in the industry. As a consequence, its graduates are prepared for a range of job functions where data analysis skills as well as knowledge about economic business principles are required. Past graduates have found jobs as consultants in domestic and international consulting companies, but also as economic advisers in private firms, international organisations, or non-profit organisations, and as analysts in regional or national governments.

Programme Structure


Topics ranging from relevant quantitative and empirical methods suitable for sectoral studies, to policy-impact analyses and forecasting, as well as training and concepts required for implementing national and international project consulting will introduce you to the exciting field of international economic consulting. 

In the second semester, you get a hands-on experience as an economic consultant. In teams you solve exciting business cases such as ‘To which countries will Danish firms see increased exports next year?’ or ‘What is the best strategy for a company for introducing new products without cannibalizing on own existing products?’ 

In the third semester, you can choose elective courses at Aarhus University, AU Summer University or (as an exchange student) at one of three hundred partner universities abroad. You also have the possibility to combine electives with an internship to strengthen your practical skill-set. Finally, the fourth semester is devoted to the master’s thesis.


At Aarhus BSS, we conduct research and teaching at the highest academic level. We provide our students with the exact knowledge, skills and experience that are essential for engaging in professional business activities in a global marketplace.

Our broad portfolio enables us to attract researchers, lecturers and students from all over the world. With their help, we have built an international environment that promotes the exchange of different academic and cultural views and fosters new experiences and friendships.

We encourage our students to take a semester abroad at one of the school’s approximately three hundred partner universities around the world. Studying abroad is an excellent opportunity to expand your horizons academically, culturally and personally. It is also a great opportunity for you to acquire valuable international experience and qualifications that are in high demand in companies and organisations everywhere.
