Organisational changes for BCOM degree programmes

As of 1 January 2017, the degree programmes that have so far been placed at the Department of Business Communication (BCOM) at Aarhus BSS will either be placed at the School of Communication and Culture at Arts or at the Department of Management at Aarhus BSS.

These organisational changes may in some areas affect you as a student.

BA in International Business Communication and MA in International Business Communication in English, French, Spanish and German

Degree programmes commencing in 2017 will be placed at the School of Communication and Culture (Arts).

Degree programmes that commenced in 2016 and before will continue to be placed under the Programme Board of Studies for Business Communication at Aarhus BSS. As a student, you will also be examined according to the same academic regulations, and the final diploma will still be issued by Aarhus BSS. On a day-to-day basis, there will be no changes either, as the framework for the teaching and the lecturers will remain the same.

However, the administrative responsibility for the degree programmes will be transferred to Arts in January. Among other things, this means that from now on, you must consult the Arts study portal and contact the Student Counselling Office at Arts if you have any questions regarding your degree programme, or if you need to apply for a credit transfer or dispensation.

You can read more about the reasons for the change in the article: “Aarhus University strengthens language programmes”.

The BA in Marketing & Management Communication (BAMCC), the MA in Corporate Communication and the Master in Corporate Communication (MACC)

As of 1 January 2017, the Department of Business Communication merged with the Department of Management. This means that the Department of Business Communication no longer exists as an independent department, and that corporate communication will become a section at the Department of Management. More specifically, this means that the degree programmes Marketing & Management Communication (BAMCC), the MA in Corporate Communication and the Master in Corporate Communication (MACC) are now part of the Department of Management.

You can read more about the merger in the article: “Two departments become one at Aarhus BSS”.
