Specialisation in Africa - become a first mover!

Achieve specialist knowledge about the African growth market and do your internship on this enormous continent!

For many years, the East has been in focus as the largest growth market. However, this tendency is changing. In recent years, the world's leading economic experts have pointed to Africa as the market with the greatest growth potential, and many Afircan countries are already seeing high growth rates.

With a specialisation in African trading, UCN Export & Marketing want to increase focus on the African continent in students and businesses alike. The African trading specialisation is a supplement to the ordinary study programme in International Sales and Marketing, but it does not prolong your period of study. This means that you must apply for admission to the specialisation and state the reasons why you should be granted one of the 20 exclusive annual places on the specialisation programme.

For you as a students this means that you will achieve new and attractive specialist knowledge about the new growth markets in Africa. Furthermore you will get the chance to test your acquired skills in Africa during the compulsory internship period.
