Lillebaelt Academy University of Applied Sciences

Lillebaelt Academy University of Applied Sciences (EAL) is the largest business academy in Southern Denmark. With more than 4000 students divided between two campus locations in both Odense and Vejle, the academy has grown substantially since its establishment in 2009.


The newly rebuilt campus in Odense, Denmark’s third largest city, is quite uniquely situated between the city center and the harbour – and only two minutes away from the train station and the old city center. Opened in the summer of 2016, the building thus steams from innovative thinking and modern outstanding Scandinavian style.

Campus in Vejle, the capital city of the Region of Southern Denmark, has a very optimal location on the so-called “educational street” where other educational institutions also have their address. Vejle lies in a fast-growing area of business and industry making the location quite relevant for the academy.

A valuable link between theory and practice

EAL offers 32 full-time educational programmes within a wide range of areas: Finance and Economics; Events, Leisure and Tourism; Multimedia and IT; Construction; Sales, Marketing and Business Development; Technology, Energy and Logistics; Laboratory, Agriculture and Process.

All of the educational programmes, from AP Degree to Professional Bachelor Degrees, are business community- and practice-oriented programmes meaning that students obtain full understanding of the relevant industries and are ready to undertake a job in an organization right after their graduation.

The international perspective as a part of Academy’s overall strategy

One of the primary tasks for EAL as an educational institution is to make sure that students are ready to compete in a global world. Internationalization is therefore a prioritized matter and part of the academy’s overall strategy.

With more than one hundred partner institutions all over the world, EAL offers all students and staff members to engage in international activities developed through international network interaction.
