    Cooperation with business

    This collaboration offers students updated and practical knowledge, which is a prerequisite for being able to spot and develop possibilities for sustainable growth. 

    Interdisciplinary skills are important

    An interdisciplinary approach to professional practice is a founding principle for VIA. We believe that cooperation between designers, engineers and marketing managers for example leads to better solutions. Therefore, we cultivate cross-disciplinary communication and cooperation between students in various of our programmes. 

    A global labour market 

    We prepare students to work in industries that operate on a global market. 

    The international perspective is aintegral part of the way we organise our programmes.
