IBA International Business Academy develops and delivers higher education programmes that work in the real world.
We are one of the country’s most internationally-oriented business academies, with over 85 overseas partner institutions across the globe.

- 3.200 part time students
IBA offers higher education programmes at AP, Professional Bachelor and Master’s levels, within areas such as finance, sales and marketing, communication, technology and web, production and management, amongst others.
In addition we offer various further educations and short courses to business people who need an upgrade to their skillset, along with 6-week courses for jobseekers within a wide range of fields.
Education that works
At IBA, we are passionate about developing and delivering education programmes that work in the real world, creating value for both companies and people.
Within the programmes we combine theory with practical skills, based around cases and projects, in collaboration with the business world - with internships as standard, or based around adult students’ regular working days within a company.
IBA also puts focus on research, innovation and development, in collaboration with a wide range of companies and partner institutions, in Denmark as well as abroad.
IBA’s new seven-floor premises at the harbour in Kolding are expected to be ready summer 2019. The new, modern building will be located right down by the river, offering students a great study environment.
IBA works with over 85 universities and institutions across the globe, from overseas or far-flung countries such as China, South Korea, Brazil and America, to European countries such as England, France, Spain and Romania.
We are active members of the Network of International Business Schools (NIBS). Study trips, student and employee exchanges, as well as conferences and development projects, are all organized through this network of international partners. IBA students also take part in international case competitions.
IBA’s Master’s programmes are accredited by Leeds Beckett University and Coventry University. Many of our international partner universities also offer IBA students direct access to their higher education programmes.
IBA has Erasmus Charter. Individual students from our partner institutions are therefore welcome here as exchange students, just as our Danish students have many opportunities to include an overseas trip as part of their studies.
