Digital Concept Development (BA) - no longer in English ::

Shutdown of international study places

Dear applicant.

As a consequence of a political decision just made by the Danish Government, the number of international study places at the Danish business academies (“danske erhvervsakademier”) will be substantially reduced. KEA therefore has to cancel admission for students to the international Digital Concept Development programme with immediate effect. It will, however, be possible to apply for admission to the equivalent programme in Danish, Digital Konceptudvikling. You can find the application form here.
