Danish Double Degrees

IBCM’s was founded in close collaboration with our Danish partners, and IBCM graduates receive a diploma from Denmark and a diploma from IBCM.

The Danish education model delivers high-quality programmes which ensure that students are prepared for the world of work. We offer two Danish degrees – Academy Profession and Bachelors (or Professional Bachelors).

What is ECTS?

ECTS is a credit system designed to make it easier for students to move between different countries. Since they are based on the learning achievements and workload of a course, a student can transfer their ECTS credits from one university to another, so they are added up to contribute to an individual’s degree programme or training.

ECTS helps to make learning more student-centred, and it also helps with the planning, delivery and evaluation of study programmes, and makes them more transparent.
