Bachelor (Hons) in International Business (E-BA)

A 100 % online programme taught in English and giving you an internationally recognized bachelor degree from Leeds Beckett University in the UK and the IBA International Business Academy in Denmark. This degree is the ideal stepping stone to a successful business career and/or further studies at master level!

NOTE! This is a top-up bachelor programme only, corresponding to the third year of a full bachelor programme. To be admitted you need to have achieved at least 120 ECTS points at academic level – that is, to have finished a Danish AP degree, a British DipHE or HND degree or similar two-year programmes from other universities around the world. If you do not have any of the above-mentioned degrees, you can be admitted based on the completion of the Pre-Bachelor programme, the description of which can be found at the bottom of this page.


Programme structure

The E-BA consists of 8 modules and a research project (Bachelor project), and the programme is normally finished in 2½ years, but may also be finished more quickly or slowly. The E-BA is extremely flexible, and you work online at your own pace, whenever you can find the time, and from any location in the world.

Our programmes are designed with working professionals in mind and allow for flexibility within a framework. You can choose the days of the week and the times of the day you study to accommodate your other commitments. However, you must meet some deadlines as advised by your lecturer. Our modules are 12-14 weeks in duration, and you are able to take breaks in between modules.

Proposed Progression Route
All modules are independent study units and may be taken independently or in any order. However, we do propose that you follow the suggested progression below with two modules at a time:

Frequently Asked Questions

Is an online degree as good as a campus degree?
Yes, it is. There is absolutely no distinction between the quality of online and campus programmes. You can be assured that all our online degrees have the same status as those awarded to graduates who studied on-campus.

How does online study work?
Asynchronous learning means that there are no set times for you to be online. You can log in to your classroom at times of the day and days of the week that suit you. This makes it possible for students in different time zones to participate in the asynchronous discussion threads that most lecturers run and that allow you to participate in online discussions when it suits you, and there will be webinars offered at regular intervals and video-recorded for those of you who cannot attend at specific times, or want to see them again.

The e-learning concept is designed in such a way that you can always keep track of your personal learning progression.

How many hours a week do I need to study?
On average, students spend around 5-10 hours per week on the E-BA programme. You may need more time, especially for your first module as you adjust to the learning platform, and you may need less for some modules. The time you need to spend studying will depend on many variables including your previous academic experience, your confidence with technology, and your English-language skills.

What are the costs?
See the costs of the programme HERE

You pay per module that you enrol on, and you decide yourself how many modules you take at a time.

Please note that, since this is a British bachelor programme, you will not receive any study grants from the Danish authorities.

Do I need additional English qualifications?
You must have passed English at a certain level. Students from Denmark must have passed English at a level equivalent to a Danish Upper Secondary education at B-level. The English B-level is represented by 210 hours during the last three years of upper-secondary school (equivalent to the Danish B-level of a Danish upper-secondary examination).

Students from all other countries must present a recognised international English test, with a result equivalent to or better than:

  • IELTS: 6.5
  • TOEFL Paper: 550
  • TOEFL Computer: 213
  • TOEFL Internet-based: 79 (minimum 19 in all sections)
  • Cambridge test: CAE A, B or C
  • Oxford Online Placement test: B2 (min. 70 in each part)

Pre-Bachelor Programme

In case you do not have the required academic qualifications described initially (to enroll into the programme) you can qualify by studying some free online courses (MOOCs) before you enroll on the E-BA. We have approved a number of courses provided by, and if you want to qualify this way, please contact us for a complete list of the courses that you will need to take to be qualified.

Notice, that these courses will replace two years of full-time study (AP degree), so it will require you to put in quite a lot of time. But doing the courses is very flexible and you manage the progression of the courses yourself.

These online courses are free of charge, and as mentioned you may take them whenever and in any order you wish. When you have finished all the recommended MOOCs with a certificate, you will be qualified to be enrolled on our Bachelor (Hons) in International Business.
