The BAMMC and MACC programmes to be discontinued

Aarhus University has been informed by the Ministry of Higher Education and Science that the BAMCC and the MACC programmes are to be discontinued.

The Ministry of Higher Education and Science has informed Aarhus University that the BAMCC and the MACC programmes at the Department of Management at Aarhus BSS are to be discontinued. The discontinuation is a result of the Ministry of Higher Education and Science’s decision to reduce the number of student places on English-language degree programmes at Danish universities.

Vice-dean for Education Per Andersen stresses that all currently enrolled students will be able to complete their Bachelor’s or Master’s degree programme. Aarhus BSS will also do everything possible to ensure that the students will be able to continue their studies on a relevant Master’s degree programme. Per Andersen has invited all affected students to an information meeting on 22 November, which will also be attended by Director of Studies Christa Thomsen and Head of Department Jacob Kjær Eskildsen.

Facts about the discontinuation
The discontinuation of the BAMMC will start from the 2019 summer intake, while the discontinuation of the MACC will start from the 2019 intake. This means that students on the BAMMC who are expecting to complete their degree programme this summer (i.e. the class of 2016) have a legal right of admission to the MACC programme.

BAMMC students from the classes of 2017 and 2018 will have to be admitted to other Master’s degree programmes. In the time ahead, Aarhus BSS will be offering students the student counselling they may need in relation to completing their Bachelor’s degree programme and continuing on a relevant Master’s degree programme.

The full implications of the discontinuation of the two programmes are not yet known. For that reason, Aarhus BSS will now survey the situation and establish collaborations with all relevant bodies and boards representing employees as well as students.
