Are you interested in working as a manager in a large international business? And are you interested in the technical elements, that make a business function? Then the two-year Master’s programme in Operations and Management Engineering offered by Aalborg University may be something for you.


There is a general increase in global companies and as a result, there is an increasing demand for graduates who can meet the challenges that come with globalisation. Studying Operations and Management Engineering at AAU CPH, you learn to develop and execute development strategies in an international perspective.

Offshoring and outsourcing of different activities within a company’s value chain are creating a completely new managerial agenda. This study programme will give you the expertise needed to analyse, understand and solve the challenges associated with the disintegration and globalisation of a company’s value chain.

The Master’s programme in Operations and Management Engineering offered by Aalborg University provides you with competences in international strategy and change processes, and you gain tools for analysis, organisation, and development in a global context.


Problem based learning and working in groups during your study programme will give you many useful skills that make you an attractive candidate on the job market. You know how to approach a problem and solve it in collaboration with other people, which is often how things are done in the “real world”.
