  • The MSc in Economics and Business Administration (Cand.merc.) - provided that you have completed the 30 ECTS MSc elective cluster or similar courses abroad   
  • Cand.it in Information Technology, IT, Communication and Organisation (ITKO). From 2019, 50 per cent more students will be admitted, but you must apply on the same terms as all other applicants. This means that you are not guaranteed a place on the programme.

Will the MSc in Strategic Communication be similar to the MACC?

No you will not. The MSc in Strategic Communication is targeted at students with a communication background. This means that the programme and the courses will be developed for students that hold a Bachelor’s degree in communication.

What do I do if my studies are delayed?
If your studies are delayed, you must always contact the student counsellors for your degree programme. We can help you if you need to apply for dispensation and guide you on how to structure your study programme. As the BAMMC and the MACC are being phased out, the remainder of your studies will be somewhat different than if you had followed the prescribed study programme. But there is always a solution.

Completion plan for the Bachelor’s degree programme in Marketing and Management Communication

The last student intake to the Bachelor’s degree programme in Marketing and Management Communication was on 1 September 2018. Therefore, you should take particular note of your last chance to take examination and reexamination (second and third examination attempts).

Below is a plan for completion of the degree programme. Note that teaching is only offered once in connection with the prescribed period of study. As always, you have three examination attempts for all courses on the first to sixth semesters: ordinary exam, reexamination in the same semester, and ordinary exam in the following semester. The third exam offered is your last examination attempt.

Students enrolled before 2018 who do not follow the prescribed period of study should also pay attention to the plan below, as the third exam listed in the completion plan is the absolute last time the exams will be offered.

Possibility for study planning
This plan applies to all students on the degree programme who follow a normal course of study. You may adjust your study plan within the framework of active enrolment requirements and the maximum time to degree. Please note, however, that if you deviate from the recommended, prescribed period of study, this may result in restrictions on the three examination attempts for each course element.

If you are considering individual study planning within the above framework, note also the rules with regard to reexamination, etc. Therefore, we recommend that you always seek advice for individual study planning from the Student Counsellors’ Office.

If you follow a specially designed study plan, it is also recommended that you contact the Student Counsellors’ Office.

Unforeseen obstacles resulting in an irregular course of study
As already mentioned, the plan below outlines teaching and examination attempts for students who follow a normal course of study and examinations. If, during your studies, you encounter obstacles that prevent you from following the normal course of study (e.g. maternity/paternity leave, exemption from active enrolment requirements, etc.) you must notify the Student Counsellor’s Office immediately in order to identify the possibilities to complete your degree programme.
