Two weeks in Copenhagen with teaching, company visits and social/cultural activities.
Niels Brock’s Summer School offers you the perfect combination of learning, discovering and travelling. With two exciting business subjects, Global Economics and Management Accounting, our skilled teachers cover the latest trends by applying real life cases, strategies and tools. You will discover the famous ‘Scandinavian way of learning’ – a method that actively engages students and encourages critical reflection and participation.
Included in the package are also visits to International companies/organisations, as well as a pre-tailored social/cultural programme, which introduces you to popular sights in and around Copenhagen.
Copenhagen will delight you with its natural beauty, its many charming squares and neighbourhoods, its cafés and restaurants, its canals and historical sights, its seaside and green parks, not to forget its inhabitants - the world’s happiest people. You can ‘shop till you drop’ in our modern fashion boutiques and shopping malls, or you can visit one of our many beaches, while breathing in the fresh ocean breeze that covers the city and its surroundings.
