What our students say

Kim Nhan Ha is a former Aarhus BSS student

1. Why did you choose to study at Aarhus BSS?

When deciding where to do my Master’s degree, I mainly looked at the universities’ graduate profiles, its network of companies and other top universities, its international environment and ranking. Aarhus BSS happened to score very well on these parameters so the school was on my list of possibilities. 

In terms of international environment, Aarhus BSS has a very diverse student group. This really makes the university stand out among other top universities which have a less diverse international environment.

I also heard some positive stories about the study environment here, particularly the motto of “work hard - play hard” and the good work-life balance – both aspects which I really wanted to explore further.

2. Why did you choose this particular degree programme?

I have always wanted to explore the field of international business due to my personal interest in globalisation and managing multi-cultural businesses. Therefore, this was a so called ‘must-have’ element in my Master’s studies.

I have previously worked with marketing and business development for around four years. Here, I realised the importance of financial skills when developing a business, particularly when I worked as an acting manager and had to handle budgets and different accounts. Hence, finance was another key topic that I wanted to take. 

All of these factors meant that the MSc in Economics and Business Administration - Finance and International Business was an ideal choice for me at that time.

3. What do find the most exciting or interesting about Aarhus BSS and/or your degree programme?

I would say the study environment and particularly the informal Danish culture and the ambition of my fellow students.

I was surprised at the informality of Danish culture and now I really enjoy it. I like that I can openly engage in discussions with my lecturers and fellow classmates without worrying about my ‘right’ to speak. I know that my views and opinions will be heard and respected regardless of my gender and origin. This makes me feel really comfortable.

I also really like the fact that my fellow students are extremely hardworking and serious about their career. When I pass by the library or study areas, I usually see everyone studying hard. Aarhus BSS also offers various career-related activities, which are normally attended by a lot of students. In such an environment, I am inspired and want to push myself harder. I want to learn more and grow more as well.

However, it is not the kind of competitive atmosphere where people work hard, compete and push each other down. Over here, students focus on what they do while still helping others if needed. For example, I took part in the Aarhus Case Competition with my classmates, and we exchanged tips even though we were in different teams. My classmates also supported and cheered me on when I participated in the L’Oreal BrandStorm 2016. We don’t compete to win but to learn and grow as well.

4. Is there anything else you would like to add?

I really encourage students to go abroad and study overseas, particularly in places with a unique culture like Denmark. The interaction with the local community, the discussions with fellow students (both local and international students), and even the experience of being the only Asian in my class have taught me a lot more than I could ever have imagined. I have also realised that ‘play’ is just as important as ‘work’. And I’ve learned that no one is higher or lower than others, instead, everyone is different and we need to celebrate and respect that difference. Such discoveries have transformed me and have given me confidence, taught me how to adapt to other cultures, and given me a more rounded view on different aspects of life.
