Asia Attracts Growing Numbers Of Danish Students

For years the USA, England and other European countries in general have been the most popular countries for Danish students to study, but Asia is now attracting more and more aspiring business students who wish to spend part of their education abroad. Just within the last couple of years the Business School in Copenhagen has seen a tremendous increase in applications for temporary studies in China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, India, and Singapore.
“Asia is the new attractive region. This is where the highest growth is and where many Danish companies wish to be successful both now and in the future. Therefore many of our students view a stay in the Asian countries as a good opportunity to find a job afterwards. And there is no doubt that (knowledge of) Asia is a good card to have in your hand,” says Robin Jensen, Chief Secretary at the international department of Copenhagen’s Business School.
In a study carried out in 2004, the most popular European countries among Danish students was England, Germany, France, and Spain while outside Europe it was USA, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. But less than two years on, Asia is gaining ground on many of these countries.
