DIS – Danish Institute for Study Abroad is a government-recognized, high-quality study abroad program established in 1959. All DIS courses and academic programs are intellectually stimulating and challenging – and are all taught in English. But at DIS, study abroad is not solely about academics, it is about providing a one-of-a-kind opportunity for students to experience new situations and build and develop leadership skills for a globalized world. That is why DIS is dedicated to providing the complete study abroad experience.
Examine the impact of globalization on European integration using the theories of international trade, capital markets, and economic development in a European context. The aim of the program is to give you a critical understanding of the links between economic integration, comparative advantage, and international competitiveness.
The Global Economics program will allow you to:
Travel with your class and DIS faculty on course-integrated study tours that give you first-hand insight and knowledge of the larger economic landscape of Europe. First, you go to Western Denmark to visit Danish companies, and then on a week-long study tour to two of the largest economic hubs of the EU - Brussels and Paris - to debate issues such as the European single market structure
Benefit from Denmark as your case study, where you and your classmates will take a comparative look at how Denmark’s small, open economy with high union membership differs from that of the U.S. and negotiates the driving forces and consequences of globalization
Explore Copenhagen through a hands-on academic lens on field studies with your core course professors, taking you behind the scenes on visits to local institutions such as a think tanks, consulting firms, and labor unions
Apply economic theory to the current euro crisis in order to understand the dynamics of global financial markets on a regional and European level
This program is right for you if your major is economics, finance, business, or international relations. You want to comprehend from a European perspective how globalization, driven by economic growth, changes the market faster than national and international policies.
Study abroad is all about getting a taste for the new, and experiencing something different from the normal campus life at your home university. If you are looking for something a bit different and a little off the beaten path, a study abroad semester, summer or year at DIS, which is located in the heart of Wonderful Copenhagen, offers a unique study abroad experience.
Aside from the many Cultural Immersion Options offered through DIS, you are encouraged to discover Copenhagen for yourself, so the city really comes alive and, most importantly, becomes ‘your home’ during your time in Denmark. Copenhagen is a friendly, open city crammed with cool and cute cafés, hip bars, varied clubs hosting international bands and acts that are regularly in town, sweet clothing stores and a plethora of parks and clean beaches. Also due to an excellent transport system, compact city center (where DIS is located) and bicycle paths practically everywhere, the life and soul of Copenhagen are easy to discover and explore.
Life in Copenhagen:
Copenhagen is a metropolis of 1.8 million people. It is the capital of Denmark and the center of the Danish-Swedish Øresund Region, with a population of 3.8 million. Yet it has an inviting small-town atmosphere of friendliness, intimacy and safety.
A dense network of walking streets, squares and waterfronts cover the old downtown area where DIS is located. Denmark may be an ultra-efficient country, but Danes know how to relax and have fun. You will truly enjoy the cozy vibe of this happening European capital.
While abroad, students continue to pay their Case tuition rather than the tuition at their new institution. In addition there are several expenses students’ financial aid can potentially help to fund. These are listed in the attachments below
