Project Details


The Fehmarnbelt connection focuses on creating a faster connection between the regions. This network project's focus, co-financed by DE / DK Interreg 5A, is through a joint master's program to create greater coherence between the Fehmarnbelt regions and a basis for economic and sustainable development. The collaboration around a common master's program will strengthen the candidates' international labor market and bring development to the regions. The project will expand educational opportunities and create graduates with international competencies who can support the region's growth, reduce barriers by mutual recognition of achieved exam results, and increase students' international exchange.

The project's primary focus is to investigate the potential for collaboration and prepare a proposal for a curriculum for a joint or double master's degree in Business Administration implemented by the partners, Roskilde University and Kiel University /Christian-Albrechts-Universität.

Key findings

1) shed light on potential employers’ and students’ requirements for a potential education to ensure that the master’s program’s curriculum matches the labor market in the program area.

2) shed light on the possibilities for research collaboration and complementarity between the two partners, Roskilde and Kiel University/Christian-Albrechts-Universität. This can also create incentives to develop further ties between the two universities, the program region, and the labor market (the graduates).

3) to develop a proposal for a curriculum for a joint or double master’s degree adapted to potential employers’ and students’ requirements, and taking advantage of the partner universities’ strengths and their possible complementarity, thus creating a real proposal for both regions and universities. A joint or double master’s degree helps break down barriers to the transfer of passed exams and mutual recognition of achieved exam results, encouraging students to study internationally and promote researchers’ development.
