Top Up Bachelor's Programme
For those of you interested in sales, trading, and marketing from an international perspective.
The Danish Government has decided to reduce the number of English-language programmes in Denmark. As a consequence, all international programmes at UCL University College will be phased out from 2022. We are not allowed to admit new students to the international programmes from 2022 and onwards.
You can still apply to any of our international programmes in 2021, and all current and new students will be able to complete their programmes. However, you will not be able to apply for e.g. a top-up programme after 2021.
If you enjoyed the Marketing Management programme and would like to continue your business studies, then the 1½-years Top-Up Bachelor in International Sales and Marketing is a fantastic opportunity for you!
The study programme will prepare you for practical and complex work in sales and marketing from an international perspective.
To give you the opportunity to apply theory and method to real-life situations, the study programme includes a three-month internship. The internship aims to give you a first-hand impression of the work environment in the international sales and marketing industry. The internship will give you the exact skills needed to land an exciting job after you graduate.
1st semester’s mandatory theme is ‘Sales and Due Diligence‘ and focuses on the following:
1st semester also includes ‘Methodology and the Theory of Knowledge’.
1st semester is completed with a semester group project provided by an external client.
2nd semester’s compulsory theme ‘Business development from an international perspective’ focuses on the following:
Furthermore, 1st and 2nd semester both include the disciplines: Marketing, Logistics, Management, and Organisation, Law, and Economics.
On 2nd semester you will also have an optional theme. The theme can be selected from a list of options or it can be self-chosen. Study groups of 4-8 students work with optional themes. The optional theme is concluded with a joint seminar where each study group presents its findings based on a synopsis covering the various issues and solutions of the theme.
2nd semester is concluded with a semester group report (4-8 students) on business development in an international perspective provided by an external client.
The internship aims to give you a chance to apply the theory and the educational issues of the two first semesters in practice in a relevant company and job function.
The internship can be compared to a full-time job with the same demands to work, performance, commitment, and flexibility that you, as a BA graduate, would be expected to meet in your first job. The internship must be relevant to the scope of the programme.
The Bachelor's Project demonstrates that you can combine theoretical, practical and developmental elements in addressing specific and relevant issues in practice.
The Bachelor's Project is completed in collaboration with a relevant company and demonstrates your ability to apply your knowledge and skills from the programme. The project should reflect both the academic level of the programme as well as its professional relevance.
In combination, the optional theme, internship, and Bachelor's Project provide you with the opportunity to influence your competence profile according to your individual focus.
As a student at UCL University College, it is possible to create an international profile during your studies. Depending on your chosen programme you can go on short international modules, study a semester or do your internship abroad, and participate in international projects.
The knowledge and insights that come from international experiences, as you encounter cultures of other countries, can be useful for more than personal enrichment. Such insights may also make you highly attractive to the Danish and international job markets.
Going abroad is an adventure, which will equip you with skills and experiences for life. You will develop yourself both professionally and personally, and you have a great opportunity to make friends and a network abroad.
The internship aims to give you a chance to apply the theory and method learned in the first two semesters in practice.
The internship can be compared to a full-time job with the same demands towards work, performance, commitment, and flexibility that you, as a BA graduate, would be expected to meet in your first job. The internship must be relevant to the scope of the programme.
One of the things that characterise the study programmes at UCL University College is that you will receive an education that emphasises practical experience. Amongst other things, you will work on practical cases in class, and work on projects with real businesses. The most practically-oriented part of the study is the internship, which is an integrated part of all study programmes at UCL.
The internship is your chance to use and test your knowledge and theory in the 'real world'. The internship also gives you the opportunity to test, what exactly you want to do with your degree once graduated.
When the time comes for you to find your first job as a graduate, you will because of a strong internship not only have theoretical knowledge, but also important experience of how it is to work in your specific field of interest.
As a BA in International Sales and Marketing, you will have good chances of finding work – in the long run as a product manager, marketing manager, sales manager, project manager, etc. in industries such as:
As a BA graduate, you will also be able to continue your studies at a Master’s level both at home and abroad.
